Pours a dark hazy golden with little head. Aroma is peach. Flavor is peach, spices, a little bread, and a mildly tart finish. zdk (1917) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2011
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 I’ve had. It’s really the awesome arouma that keeps this together. RedSox2004 (1890) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 23, 2017
Cloudy orange with a beautiful thick fluffy white head that lasted forever and left very nice thick lace. Big peach aromas with plenty of wheat and a little toast. Fuzzy peach flavors generate sweetness with a touch of tart and earthy hops. Medium body, fuzzy carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a finish full of peach.

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.

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.
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Smells like artificial peaches.
Appearance- The best part of this beer. A nice murky amber colored beer with a small white head.
Taste- Absolutely terrible, it was such a train-wreck of faux peaches and wheat that I couldn’t even drink this. I have finished off some amazingly bad beers in the past.
Palate- hmmm, YUCK
Overall- Terrible beer, I have had several other RJ Rocker beers and they were decent, this one is abysmal.

Like drinking and smelling a peachy ring. At the base of this beer is a typical wheat, but the peach aroma and flavor is so overwhelming, a bit too much for me. JHeath99 (1678) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - JUL 7, 2014
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. jrodooo5 (1672) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - APR 23, 2012
Smell is certainly peachy. Pours a cloudy yellow with not much of a head. Taste is fairly peachy. Kind of soda like in acidity. Not my cup of tea. kassner (1659) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2011
Very nice fruit ale, with a good beer underneath, some hops, great fragrance and subtile peach flavor without sweetness, and an Ice cream feel.
