3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours a clouded, appropriately wheat-hued body with a wispy, but lasting, white head.
Smell: Predominately fruity but also fairly wheaten aroma with the bulk of the scent made up by ripe, juicy peaches. Aroma = Peaches > Wheat.
Taste: Slightly tangy malted wheat with a few chunks of honey-coated graham crackers and tiny hint of vanilla. The sweetness, thankfully, is nicely restrained. Of course, there’s a strong peach flavor with a touch of tartness to it, though not quite as forward as the aroma suggested. I detect a slight bitterness, though no real discernible hop flavors. Finishes rather dry with a faintly tart lingering peach flavor.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A fine, fruit-flavored wheat ale for a pint’s worth, particularly if you’re a peach aficionado. Though I can’t help but hold it aloft with a wink and declare it one for the la--HAHA, ah, that Ding. With only 7 reviews currently entered (over on BA), he’s already beaten me to that conclusion. Well, I still stand by my verdict -- Son of a Peach is one for the ladies! Which, now that I think about it, isn’t a half-bad name for a beer to begin with.

Ok, I admit that this is not for everyone, but the aromas and flavors of fresh cut peaches is excellent. I was especially impressed with the true to life peach flavor the beer replicates without becoming sweet. Very enjoyable.
