3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Once Upon a Vine - South on 08/22/2009. Somewhat hazy copper orange body with a medium frothy off-white head. Big peach aroma with some light wheat hints in the background. Sweet peach flavor, though lighter than in the nose, with a bit of a dry wheat background. Medium body with moderately high carbonation.

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.

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 didnít get it, but I found this profundly disappointing. Iím not sure I wouldnít just have a Budweiser.

(draft) Murky orange with medium white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, peach, peach syrup. Taste is medium sweet, peach, not as cloying as the aroma suggests. Light-medium body.

12oz bottle. Thick, murky orange with a minimal soapy head. Some floaties. Deep peach pie aroma. Pronounced peach juice taste, not that tart..more thick, sweet, and creamy. Really captures the essence of peaches and cream. Light tangy peach-apricot in the aftertaste. Refreshing and quite unique. Some serious peach yogurt nuances.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the High Country Beer Fest, it pours a hazy orange, with a nice foam cap that leaves spotty lace. Pure peach bouquet. The flavors are superbly integrated for peach pulp and juice, intermingling with some bready notes, wheat, and a slightly acidic sweet and sour finish. The mouthfeel is light and refreshing, and cuts through the heat perfectly in summer. As a general rule, most fruit beers get a bad rap as overprocessed, sometimes cloying, odd experimentations. I can say with all assurance that this offering is not any of those, and honestly tastes like a true, natural peach-infused ale. Nothing artificial about this brew here. Kudos to RJ Rockers.

Dark orange body that is very cloudy. There is also an off white head. The nose is fairly strong with the ripe canned peach juice aroma. There is also some light dough aroma. The taste is not sweet as I would have expected. It is woody, like sucking a peach pit with some melted plastic in the finish. Man, I wanted to like the beer as much as the label.
