Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange.
Aroma: Aroma of peach, light wheat.
Taste: Sweetness from the peach, wheat.
Palate:Light body, quick aftertaste, little bit of fizz.
Summary: Fruit beers will never be super popular on this site, but this beer really sets out what it seeks to do. Enjoyable spring/summer ale.
Old rating 2/1/2010:Good fruit beers are hard to come by. Son of a Peach is a solid fruity beer. Strong peach nose, slightly sweet taste with a peach after taste. Solid on a spring/summer day.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very interesting offering, as I had never seen a peach wheat before. Beer poured an semi-opaque orange cloudy color. Aroma and flavor dominated by peaches and cream. A great summer, warm weather beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dirty dishwater iced tea tan-orange with a small off-white head that collapses quickly to a thin skin; lots or suspended particles. The nose is a subtle blend of peaches and soft wheat; it opens up nicely as it warms a bit. Light-bodied and softly wheaty with a slightly tart finish. The flavor follows the nose with additional notes of flowers and light peach pit. This is a pretty interesting fruit beer. I prefer it a bit more than the one other (O’Fallon) peach wheat beer that I’ve tried.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a off-white head. Aroma of fresh peaches and some notes of wheat. Flavor was juicy sweet peaches, wheat, tangy spices and had a touch of tartness with a crisp clean finish

(Sample Date: 8/22/2009 Source:Other) Peach (maybe a bit artificial) sugary aroma. Cloudy golden with fine off white head. Peach and pear fruitiness with enough bitterness to balance. Light body and mouth feel. Medium finish.

Bottle picked up at Stateline... Dark orange color. Small head. Aroma of funky peaches. Taste is peachy....duh? Medium texture... Not much to write about... Not a bad beer at all.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Poured a darker orange color. No head to speak of, some sediment was present in the glass. Aroma was strong peaches. Flavor was strong peach and wheat aftertaste. Different beer. Good idea, but too strong of peaches.

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Peaches and cream aroma. Murky golden, headless. It looks almost gelatinous in the glass. The sweet aroma is contrasted by the reality of the substantially drier flavor of stale malt and perfume. I call shenanigans! This seems nothing more than subpar beer with artificial peach flavoring. Maybe I was expecting something sweet or tart and didn’t get it, but I found this profundly disappointing. I’m not sure I wouldn’t just have a Budweiser.
