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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted 8/2/09. 12oz bottle. My first rating from South Carolina! Activated pour produces a lively hiss and a finger width of quickly dissipating off-white head. Hazy and sedimented with a dark golden hue. Abundant fruity aromas, but pleasant. Medium bodied with crisp effervescence. Thereís an odd maple, vanilla note that somehow doesnít quite meld with the rest of the flavors. Tart and tangy with a bready malt character. Somewhat astringent and off. I canít quite put my finger on it, but the palate suffers because of it.Bitter finish with a lingering sticky sweetness. Candy sweet and tinny. This is just decent...

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours a murky orange with a small white head. Aroma is of peaches, citrus, vanilla cream, and spice. Smells like delicious, fresh peaches. Taste is of sweet, juicy peaches. There is also a decent amount of citrus, vanilla cream, and spice. Has a bready malt backbone that compliments the peach flavor very well. Mouthfeel is juicy and light. Lingering taste of citrus and peaches. Itís a damned fine fruit beer. I could drink this all day.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2013 Single bottle was $1.65 at Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Cloudy golden-amber with a small head. PEACH! in the aroma. Flavors of peach (obviously), grass, and has a bit of bitterness. Nice.

Uh... W T F. My first peach beer experience. And actually, itís better than I expected. But I donít really like peaches that much. If I did however, it would be excellent. Appearance is... peach color with what looks like bits of peaches floating around. Aroma is..... peaches. Flavor is... peaches. Palate is... peaches (ok that makes no sense). Itís very aromatic and flavorful. I can appreciate it for what it is and what they are going for. About as good as I can imagine a peach beer could be.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
THOUGHTS. It was different, but not great. But still makes a nice summer refresher.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a murky, milky, orangey yellow with a small, white head that mostly diminished and left good to excellent lacing. The aroma was mostly peach along with light to moderate cereal, peach nectar and when warmer almost a peaches and cream kind of smell, or better yet a bowl full of Wheaties and peaches with milk. The initial flavor was tart, lightly sweet, sour and acidic; while the finish was sweet, bitter, sour, acidic and tart with an average duration. There was peaches (the whole peach, meat, skin and pit), wheat and yeast. The light to medium body was dry with fizzy carbonation and a lightly astringent and slightly metallic finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed from a 12oz bottle in a pub glass. The beer pours a darkish yellow, with a slight white head that quickly disappears. The nose throws strong scents of peach, along with a slight indication of esters given by the American Hefeweizen yeast. The palate is complex but refreshing, at first simply showing peach, and then moving to some ginger, cinnamin, wheat malt, and just a bit of banana at the end. One of the better fruit beers Iíve sampled as of late.
