Bottle from Half Time. Pours hazy amber (almost ripe peach) with a 3 finger foamy off-white head. Aroma is freestone peach center - quite nice. Med body. Almost. Flavor is strong. Lots of peach. So much that it is nearly perfumey. There’s a little wheat detectable. The finish is pretty dry and arguably very bitter. Maybe they crushed the pits before use. Mean peaches. Fits. doboy (424) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2012

Son of a Peach pours two colors. At the bottom of the glass you get a deeper orange color. As you go up, the orange gets lighter and lighter until you get up to the top of the glass and it’s more of a yellow color. As you can see in the picture there is a ton of sediment in there. I went back and read other reviews to make sure I didn’t get a bad bottle but every review I read saw the same thing I did. Then I saw on the site that this beer is unfiltered. That would explain it. Barely any head is poured. Whatever is poured fizzes away into a small bit of lacing around the glass.
Now the aroma of this beer really got me into it. The aroma is rich and big. It smells like peaches and cream. It’s really impressive. I sat there for a while just enjoying the smell. The taste in the beginning really didn’t do much for me though. It’s like the smell but it’s not as big. I definitely picked up more ingredients in the taste though. The peaches are mixed in with more of a wheat and grain flavor. As you let it warm up and as you drink, the peaches come through and build up more. The mouthfeel is on the medium side with a tiny bit of carbonation. You’ll notice a little bit of the sediment once in a while but it’s not bad. Lowe1983 (1656) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2011
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. hopdog (13194) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2011
12oz bottle. Golden pour with a small sized head. Lots of fresh peaches in the aroma. Tastes of peaches, vanilla, and candy. If I liked peaches, I’d like this probably.

This was a fun beer joint tasted via Facebook Chat with Strykzone and locally with my brother Rick. The pour was a cloudy peach color as befits its name, and a nice off-white head and glue like lacing rings. Nose of peach. And more peach. The body was medium and the mourhfeel relatively smooth. The flavor was a good balance between the peach and wheat which make the fruit be under control,. The finish was more like quality wheat beer than a fruit beer with a hint of vanilla. Overall this was a really good rendition of a fruit beer. b Strykzone (7797) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2011
12 oz. bottle from Hayduke. He, Rick, and I enjoyed it together via facebook chat. This poured a dingy golden and was hazy with suspended yeast. An off white head was two fingers and left sticky and spotty lacing. The aroma was very sweet and was like canned peaches. The flavor brought out both wheat and peach. Some cloves were noted and they indicate some very nice balance between fruit and wheat. This was more bitter than expected with an unripe fruit bitterness. The finish brought out a vanilla like soft spice. Very nice. metallica7615 (6) - - OCT 25, 2011 does not count
not my taste... too fruity and leaves a bitter aftertaste... not beer not peach, its weird Dogbrick (14311) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2011
This beer pours a hazy peach color appropriately enough, with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Fresh peaches and malt in the nose. Light body with a sweet peachy flavor with some wheat and malt in the background. The finish is straight peaches. Points for capturing the base fruit so accurately, but otherwise pretty straightforward. Niko100 (3012) - Chicago, New York, USA - OCT 1, 2011
