COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An unfiltered American wheat ale made with real mean peaches. The only thing missing is the fuzz. Savor the anger.

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

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.

12oz bottle. Thick, murky orange with a minimal soapy head. Some floaties. Deep peach pie aroma. Pronounced peach juice taste, not that tart..more thick, sweet, and creamy. Really captures the essence of peaches and cream. Light tangy peach-apricot in the aftertaste. Refreshing and quite unique. Some serious peach yogurt nuances.

12 oz bottle courtesy of secret santa. Thanks. Pours a cloudy amber color with a small white head that diminishes to a fine ring. The aroma is big and bold with sweet ripe peaches and peach pits. The flavor similarly has a good peach character with some wheat and biscuit filling in the sides and back. The palate was a bit on the thin side and the carbonation was slightly prickly. Finished medium in duration and dry with a bit of odd sour wheat. Overall: Loved the nose, good taste, but this fell apart on the finish.

On draft at the Old Eagle Tavern in Philadelphia. I expected this to be kind of a "gateway beer" but itís much more substantial than that. The weizen component of the brew stands up well, with the kind of good body and a decent head that you want in a German-style wheat beer. And the peach dimension is also strong and flavorful. Too often fruit-lavored wheat beers are just too thin and insubstantial in both of their two components, and this oneís a nice change from that. Itís the first Iíve seen of this brewery in our area and Iíd definitely order it again. Thanks to Erin For bringing this keg to The Old Eagle.

Strong aroma has a very firm overtone of peach - it really does smell like a freshly cut peach, and I love peaches! It has a wheaty hint as well. Pours a hazy, nearly opaque honey golden with a thick and rather persistent palest honey-tan head. Wheaty flavor has a firm and somewhat sweet, but not too sweet, overtone of peach. Got me thinking - is it possible to make peach cider or peach wine? Well, the Japanese make plum wine - pourquoi pas? OK, enough digression. Texture has good body and good fizz, definitely some peach in the finish. If you love peaches, you should love this beer.

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.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange.
Aroma: Aroma of peach, light wheat.
Taste: Sweetness from the peach, wheat.
Palate:Light body, quick aftertaste, little bit of fizz.

Summary: Fruit beers will never be super popular on this site, but this beer really sets out what it seeks to do. Enjoyable spring/summer ale.

Old rating 2/1/2010:Good fruit beers are hard to come by. Son of a Peach is a solid fruity beer. Strong peach nose, slightly sweet taste with a peach after taste. Solid on a spring/summer day.

Tap at RnH - wow that arouma is very impressive. They managed to isolate that full, peach creamsicle and somehow kept it intact during the brewing process. Nose is peach creamsicle and a touch of citrus and canned peaches. Body is lighter than expected, light wheat and grain y notes, sweet fruits with a touch of caramel but mostly just light fruit juice. Fully sweet finish with only a hint of dryness. The least offensive ( and therefore the best) fruit beer Iíve had. Itís really the awesome arouma that keeps this together.
