COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An unfiltered American wheat ale made with real mean peaches. The only thing missing is the fuzz. Savor the anger.

Bottle. Brewed on (I think): 04/12/10. A murky brownish orange pour with a skim of a tan head. A strong aroma of peaches, apricots, vanilla, and caramel. Fairly artificial smelling. A crisp, medium body with loads of wheatiness. A sweet start taste-wise with lots of cream and a bit of caramel. A sweet, doughy middle. A tart finish with lots of peaches and apricots. Like drinking a peach pie with whipped cream on top. Not a bad summer refresher, but more than one can be a bit much.

Pours a transparent deep golden brass with a thin, stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet, sugary peach nose with some biscuity notes. Starts with a slightly creamy texture with fine carbonation and a soft pale malty sweetness with some herbal grassy bitterness and lightly tart peach flavor before a drier, smooth finish. Fruit-flavored wheat beers arenít really my favorite, but this one isnít too bad.

Cloudy apricot brown with a tiny white head. Scent is vanilla, peaches. Taste is sweet peaches and vanilla, just a bit tart. Not my idea of a beer.

Served from tap into a standard pint. Poured a yellow-orange with one-finger white head that reduces and stays throughout. Maintains decent lacing. The aroma of this one is dominated by peaches. The flavor starts out with subtle peach with some grainy notes with the peaches intensifying upon swallowing. Overall, this is not my favorite beer from the RJ Rockers brewery. Has a nice peach followup that is quite crisp, but also has a poor flavor up front. It is not horrible, but I am not a fan.

jgb9348 (4842) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2010
Hazy orange coloured body with a copper glow and a very thin, fast-dying head. Aroma of strong aromatic peaches, a lot of caster sugar, oranges, a touch of malt and some offputting spices at the end. Medium-bodied; Assertive fresh peaches at first with some malt and sugars following behind. Aftertaste shows some chocolate and perhaps nutty bitterness coming right after the main sweet and fruity flavours - odd indeed. Overall, a good beer in the nose, but the execution isnít flawless and it has an overwhelming chocolate and malt character that doesnít show well to me, especially in this category. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 15-April-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 06-May-2010.

12oz Ė The Wine Source. Dark hazy gold, thick off white creamy head. Fresh warm peach bread aromas ride undercurrents of nutty earth and caramel. Dry peachy biscuit flavors balance well on notes of earth and wheat. Nice as the sweetness is held in check. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, drying yeasty-peach finish. A good warm weather drinker that was a pleasant surprise...

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2010
Bottled. Poured cloudy deep peach with a creamy, well-retained beige head.. some peach kernel (or at least thatís what Iíll pretend it looked like) as sediment on the top.. looked great! The aroma picked up fresh peaches with tart wheat accents plus a little cinnamon.. dirty.. enjoyed it. The flavor found grainy peach meat and vanilla at the core.. wheat tartness on the edges was actually masked by residual sugars.. quite bitter through the finish, also picking up a little of the cinnamon. Light-medium bodied and grainy on the palate.. the bitterness became too sharp at the end, but all-in-all it was tasty.

Draft at the Angry Oyster (?) in Charleston. Bartender didnít know what he was talking about and said it was a Budweiser product. Very peachy, a little too much. Kind of a like a sweet peachy beer slurry. Pass.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2013 Location/Date:Bottle on 5/17/2013

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.
