COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
People just love RJ Rockers’ Son of a Peach, a seasonal wheat beer made with real peaches that appeals to damned near every kind of beer drinker. Impeachment doubles down on Son of a Peach, with a massive ABV and as much punch as peaches can pack.

Formerly known as Impeachment.

Did our own beer tasting at our favorite craft brew place, and out of about 10 good beers, this one won out. Great beer.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2014 Original rating was On tap at the 2012 Brewgrass Beer Festival in Asheville, NC, when the working title was "imPeachment". Now that the recipe is slightly different and is mass-produced, I will amend my rating. This Pours a hazy deep orange into the glass, with a wispy head that fully diminishes, leaving trace lacing. The nose is of fresh peaches. Flavors are extremely peachy, with a creamy essence proved by the soft carbonation texture. A peach candy flavor finishes the pull, along with a touch of well-hidden alcohol warmth. The body is medium, the mouthfeel oily, with a light liveliness to the palate provided by semi-soft carbonation and the alcoholic kiss at the end of the pull. If you’re in the mood for a sweet aperitif, your palate may not want to like it, but your sweet tooth will make you grin sipping it. A guilty pleasure, for sure.

Pours a hazy reddish amber with a light tan foamy head. Aroma of peach schnapps. A little oxidation (must be the bottle). Taste is sweet and peachy up front with a a growing tartness from the middle on that also displays the more sour side of peaches. As an imperial the higher ABV is nicely masked. A little tart, but refreshing and no alcohol burn.

GT2 (8332) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Tap at Iron Horse tap room. Pours a full haze peach. Reverse cascade head. Nose is fruitier peach cobbler with uncanny buttery pie crust. Taste follows. Sticky, artificial, mild plastic and medicinal character. Fake apricot, mint, chalky, diet soda. My friends loved it. Palate is a huge weak point. Medicinal and off putting.
