3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy orange with a white one-finger head. A lot of peach in the aroma, alongside some candy-ish bubblegum notes and a bit of grainy wheat. The wheat makes it almost musty, which I like. More of the same in the flavor, though the middle has that turn for the worse that the two raters below me speak of. The middle-end reminds me of Sam Adams Summer Wheat, which isnít necessarily a good thing. The flaw is noticeable, but it doesnít completely ruin this decent little refresher. Dry, almost-but-not-quite snappy finish.

9th rating, 12oz. Pours orange with a bright white ring. Nose is sweet and peachy and pretty nice overall. Taste is sweet, like peach bubblegum, maybe a bit of diacetyl like OSLO mentiond but this beer is so muddled its hard to tell where the peach begins and a possible infection might end.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2009 [Bottle] Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma isnít bad--mainly just big on peach and bubblegum. The taste has a lot of bubblegum and peach too, at first...before transitioning into a diacetyl butter bomb with just a little malt evident. Ugh. Fairly thin, slightly dry, long finish. The diacetyl killed this beer for me, and really made it hard to even finish the bottle.

This beer pours a cloudy orangish gold with a peach aroma containing hints of wheaty yeast. The flavor is very smooth and not overly sugary or peachy, just a nice balance of classic American wheat ale qualities with a nice peach undertone. The mouthfeel is very creamy and admirably, not sticky like a lot of fruit beers tend to be. This is a nice, light bodied fruit beer your girlfriend will like.

12 oz bottle. Murky gold with a ringed white head. A whopper of a peach nose, not much past the sweet peachiness. The peach lays back in the flavor a bit, allowing a decent amount of wheat to come through. Spritzy body, which is a bit surprising from the appearance. Not overly sweet, in fact, a shade of tartness shows. Kinda agree with ChainGangguy - a bit of a chick beer, but refreshing nonetheless.

Tap @ TacoMac, Johnís Creek. Pours a goodlookin hazy orange, thin creamy white head. Good lace. Aroma of peach pie. Puree of ripen peaches over wheat malt. Flavor is very fruity. Lots of peaches although no sweetness. All floating around in a very dry, unfiltered wheat beer. Finishes with the flavor of a Childernís Tylenol. Overall, attendance of the peach is unique, in the least.

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, thereís 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 pintís worth, particularly if youíre a peach aficionado. Though I canít 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), heís 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, isnít 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.
