A great summer beer. Smells just like fresh peaches. A great beer to pick up if you can find it.

Gold in color. Unfiltered. A lot floating around in there. Highly carbonated. Good amount of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Smells of fresh peaches. I get the wheat and a good amount of peach flavor. Feels great on the tongue. Light and refreshing. One of my favorite summer time brews. I find it refreshing after cutting the lawn or relaxing on my patio. This years offering had a lot more floating around in my glass. Kinda weird watching those chunks working around in there. I look forward to this brew every summer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

The name days it all. Very strong peach flavor. If you like peach there’s nothing not to like about this beer.

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 it’s 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 one’s a nice change from that. It’s the first I’ve seen of this brewery in our area and I’d 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: MAY 20, 2013 Location/Date:Bottle on 5/17/2013

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.
