3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the Shenandoah Throwdown. Pours a hazy milky orange color with a faint white head. Big peach, sweet and juicy smelling, like a nice ripe peach left in a plastic bag almost a bit too long. Thinner than expected, full of sweet caramel flavors. The aroma on here was amazing, but the rest of the beer (though not terrible) didn’t live up to the promise.

Tallahassee Tasting at Proof/Liquor Loft - 12 oz bottle. Murky, light orange pour. Peachy aroma. Flavor is fresh and of course, peachy. Peach flavor is pretty natural and refreshing. Crisp, clean mouthfeel. Much better than expected.

There’s definitely a ton of peaches in the nose, along with some bubblegum, wheat and light hops. The body is fairly spritzy and lively, with flavors of peaches, bubblegum, wheat and some other sweet fruits. The finish is quite sweet as well, with more peaches and gum. This isn’t a bad fruity wheat beer, but one that I would seek out again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 aren’t really my favorite, but this one isn’t too bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 isn’t flawless and it has an overwhelming chocolate and malt character that doesn’t 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 – 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...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured cloudy deep peach with a creamy, well-retained beige head.. some peach kernel (or at least that’s what I’ll 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.
