2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into a weizen glass.
4.0 A: Hazy light orange color. Creamy base, frothy topped head has good retention and leaves lots of lacing.
4.0 S: Oh boy are the peaches forthright. The only issue is that it seems very artificial, like the peach ring gummy candy instead of real peaches. Still highly enjoyable (those gummies are awesome). Too a much less extent, there is the wheat base.
3.0 T: Nothing special here. The peach that was so apparent in the nose barely shows up in the taste. The wheat, however, comes through just fine. With some refinement, this could be a very good and unique beer, but right now it’s just okay.
3.5 M: Medium body. The body’s a bit thicker than the style would like and the carbonation is a bit low.
3.5 D: I imagine this would be good on a hot day, but some others would be better.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
R.J. Rocker Son of a Peach has a very thick, off-white head, a semi-clear, deep golden (peachy, even) appearance, with lots of intense bubble streams and roiling brown chunks. Thick lacing is left behind. The aroma is of peaches and a hint of bread. Taste is of peaches, sugar, syrup, bread, and a touch of bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and R.J. Rocker Son of a Peach finishes dry, refreshing, sweet, and easy going. Overall, this is one of the better fruit beers I have had. RJT

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 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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very nice fruit ale, with a good beer underneath, some hops, great fragrance and subtile peach flavor without sweetness, and an Ice cream feel.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Lazy Dog. Pours a hazy amber with a small ring of off white head. Taste is heavy on malts with a hint of peaches. Aroma is opposite, heavily favoring the peaches. Weird balance.

Pours a cloudy, amber color with a white head. Aroma is pretty much all peach with a hint of some wheat. Flavor is creamy with peach flavors dominating. Some wheat comes out on the finish as well.

3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells like peach. Sweet. This would be good if I liked peaches. Thin head. Way too fruit.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma of this beer is pure peaches, almost sickeningly and artificially so, but it is nice because of how natural and organic the smell actually is (think peach cobbler with almost too many peaches); furthermore, the color is a cloudy light orange with nearly no head yet with an abundance of sediment. The taste, when compared to the smell, falls a little under expectations with the mildly bitter and slightly sweet taste, but the sour isn’t bad once you remember that it is very true to how the over-ripened peach tastes; also, the palate is awkward to the tongue at first because of how the dryness on the tongue feels as if you had licked the peach fuzz itself, but the medium body, flat carbonation, and long finish help to balance the tongue’s sensations.
