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

Hope you like peaches! This is an excellent peach beer that finishes smoothly and isnít too overwhelming on the peach side!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A really nice fruit wheat beer. Smell of peaches is very much noticeable and wheat is also mixed in there. A nice hazy yellow pour with a medium sized white head. Flavor of peaches put not overpowering and not too sweet, just right for a summer day. Good stuff!

msFF (6) - Maryland, USA - MAY 2, 2011 does not count
Pours a cloudy burnt orange with a lacy white one finger deep head. A yummy peach almost candy like aroma with a hint of musty wheat . . the flavor is very much the same as the aroma, candy/fruity, peach/apricot essence which I love, finishes smooth and creamy quite satisfying on the tongue, almost begging you to take another sip, not a fan of the cough syrup like after taste, but as a lady with a discriminating palate for sweets this was somewhat of a treat

Pours hazy gold. Aroma is peaches. Taste is wheat and peach. Nice crisp ending with a bit of residual bitterness.

When you grow up in the South you learn to love peaches. This one pours a hazy light golden orange with minimal head and decent ringlets of lacing. Big peach aroma right away and dominant, brown sugar, wet wheat, peach syrup. Taste is Peach dominant also, which is fine with me, this is like Georgia or South Carolina in a bottle!, light earthiness with the wee bit of hops, sweet, tasty, Southern. Loved it. Been wanting to try this one and it didnít disappoint.
