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.

12oz Ė The Wine Source. Dark hazy gold, thick off white creamy head. Fresh warm peach bread aromas ride undercurrents of nutty earth and caramel. Dry peachy biscuit flavors balance well on notes of earth and wheat. Nice as the sweetness is held in check. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, drying yeasty-peach finish. A good warm weather drinker that was a pleasant surprise...

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Bottle. Poured with a conveniently peach color, a solid poofy head, and a sweet, definitive peach cream aroma. The beer has quite the unique mouthfeel, liquid silk. The peaches mellow as you drink, settling into the musty wheat backdrop. Interesting. (#4198, 8/6/2011)

Tasty beer! Pours a cloudy Amber with light lacing. Light peach aroma. Super refreshing for summer!

zach8270 (3219) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2012
(draft @ 101 Bottles - Kent, OH) Very hazy orange pour with a thick white head. Candy and peaches mixed with a bitter wheat base at the start of the aroma. Flavor starts off a bit bitter and acidic, but as it warms, the peach flavors develop more and move almost to a slight creamsicle flavor with a light fruity aftertaste. Very refreshing.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Cloudy wheat/amber with decent white head. Peach juice aroma. Intense peach/floral flavor. Finishes a bit soapy, but mostly fruity sweet (but not syrupy).

ChainGangGuy (4280) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 25, 2009
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.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - MAY 8, 2009
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.

ben4321 (3560) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2009
Location: 12 oz bottle from Gillyís, 5/29/09
Is this a newer one? Only 11 raters before me, and I got it in MD...

Aroma: Dominated by peach, a little wheat, sugary, more like a peach candy or peach gum then actual peach...
Appearance: Cloudy yellow gold, nice inch or 2 of fluffy white head
Flavor: Peach is still dominant, but more subtle then in the nose, nice sweet wheat beer flavor, I found it to be surprisingly good
Palate: Super easy to drink, certainly feel more like 4% beer then a 5.8% beer, fizzy too
Overall Impression: Look, its super fruity and light, but that was the point! If you donít want a fruit beer you picked up the wrong bottle, but hey, you shouldíve figured that out from the label. Itís not an Impy Stout there fella...Iím not a big fruit beer guy by any means, I rarely like them, and find most to be too sweet. After the nose, I thought this one was going to be too sweet for me too, but then I drank it, and found out they did a good job with this one, I really did enjoy it, and I ainít gonna apologize for that!

**Just submitted a photo for this one, as it was missing one.
