look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 fl oz. can, with no apparent canned on date present. My third beer from O'Fallon Brewery, acquired as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's. It's been a long time since I've had a beer from these guys, so I'm not quite sure what to expect. The premise sounds nice, though.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a light bright golden yellow-orange colored body with lots of bubbles rushing topside and some fine sediment in the glass. Just over a finger of sudsy white head than thins to a ring. Looks very nice.

S - The peaches come through nicely on the aroma. Fruity dried peaches / apricot, creaminess, white grapes, and grassy / herbal wheat presence. Lightly fumey at times, but it's a nice aroma.

T - Taste follows the nose - fruity peach / apricot, and dry grainy malted wheat presence. A simple, yet tasty beverage. Reminds me a lot of how Magic Hat #9 tastes.

M - Feel is crisp, smooth, and creamy. Light-bodied, easy drinking, and with good carbonation.

Overall, a very nicely done peach wheat beer. Perfectly balanced, and super sessionable for a hot summer day. I will definitely be looking forward to more of these.

O'Fallon Brewery Wheach ---4/5.

I like the cloudy yellow hue as it rises up to a creamy foamy cap. The nose held light peach and wheat, as it should. The flavors were muted with a sweet candy peach and even some wheat malt but it's too subdued. The feel is like velvet with an intense smoothness. Overall I'd recommend it for a try and certainly for those who enjoy the fruit beer style.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/26/2013. Pours very hazy golden amber color with a 2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big ripe peach, lemon zest, pear, apricot, wheat, floral, grass, bread, light honey, and light yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of fruit and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of ripe peach, lemon zest, pear, apple, wheat, floral, grass, light pepper, bread, light honey, and floral earthiness. Lingering notes of peach, light fruits, wheat, floral, grass, light pepper, bread, and light honey on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance of peach, malt, and lightly spicy yeast flavors; with solid robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a slightly creamy and very crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good fruited wheat beer. Good balance of fruit and malt flavors with solid robustness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

I don't know what you would like me to say about this beer..."please hold my purse whilst I pee"??? The beer is ok...it has peach aroma and accents. The Wheach poured a yellow clear with thin white head that is to sweet to lace. The scent is has subtle backdrop of peach. The taste weak peach with a wheat beer base. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a good lawn mower beer and capable of competing with the Leinekugles beery Weiss beers.

A - Pours a light hazy straw color, thin fizzy one finger head, no lacing.
S - Wheat, sparkling apple juice kinda smell, sour candy, baking flour, dried flowers.
T - Peachy, but not too much, nor too sweet, goes with the moderate wheat flavor well.
M - Light, a tad sweet, but refreshing.
O - For what it is, its a good summer beer, nice balance of fruit.

3.24/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Hazy gold with a narrow band of white head. Lots of carbonation is bubbling from bottom to top.

Peachy, with very subtle hints of what might be a wheat beer, but mostly peachy - sweet, fruity, clean, a little fleshy.

Refreshing in the heat of the summer, as it's not overly sweet on the tongue. Peachy, with a very subtle bit of malt to support the fruitiness.

Crisp, easy to drink, light carbonation.

Though I'm not much for fruit-focused beers, this one is enjoyable in the right setting - ballpark, pre-mowing, in-mowing, post-mowing, etc.

3.56/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5

A-A dark golden color with a bit of haze. Thin head which dissolved into a nice lacing that stayed for quite some time.

S-Super peachy smell. Usually I can't smell the more intricate parts of a beer. However, the peach needed no super sniffer. It was right there and up front. A hint of wheaty aroma appeared as it warmed up, but the peach was the head honcho.

T-It was quite well-balanced. The peach did not over power the grains nor vice versa. They complimented each other well throughout the entire night as I took my time with the beer. The finish was a poppy bitterness that cut off the sweetness of the peach. There was a bit of a dirty aftertaste as it warmed up but I suspect that was the tap lines (not the best bar).

M-watery, thin. definitely the downfall of the beer.

O-I would suggest this as a session beer, but I know I held onto it for a long time because I was enjoying so much. Worth a try to the beer connoisseur to one new to the beer scene. A beer to bring palates of all different walks of beer.

A - Pours a slightly hazy straw color with a one finger pure white head. Very nice looking beer

S - Smells like a peach! Not much else there

T - Definately lots of peach upfront, but nearly as strong as the aroma. It has very nice malts in the background that complement the peach flavor quite nicely

M - A very smooth drinking beer with medium body and nice carbonation

O - A very enjoyable fruit beer. The aroma had me a little scared because of its strength. The beer ended up having a pleasant peach taste with a nice malty background. This is not something I would want to drink several of, but could see myself keeping it around the house for something different every once in awhile

3.88/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a fluted pilsner glass.

The beer is a hazy golden yellow. A tight white head slowly recedes and good foamy lacing remains on the glass.

The aroma is straight-forward wheat, malt, and massive peach.

Taste is dominated by sweet peaches. The finish has more "beer flavor" such as malts, yeast, and maybe a hint of hops.

The mouthfeel is light.

Overall, just too much peach for my taste, but it is what it says it is. One is enough. Tastes like peach jolly rancher candy.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Reviewed from notes.

Pours out lightly clouded straw with three fingers of fluffy foam that gradually subsides over three minutes, leaving behind some streaky lace patterns. Light body and spritzy, crisp carbonation that cuts well through the sweet fruit profile within.

Very strong sugary peach preserves aroma, I can hardly smell the malt at all, but it is there in the background. Semi-dry wheat and peachy blend in flavor works well as a blend, but there is a rising oddball mustiness that comes on as I finish through the glass. I'd describe it as a sort of 'over-ripe and squishy peach' kind of mustiness. Not bad at all! I just wish I could make out some kind of hopping garnish or accent (Why couldn't there be floral or grassy hopping?) but maybe that's just the hop addict in me whining about a non-existent problem...

I got this as part of an M&M 6pk from Woodman’s in Sun Prairie, WI in summer 2012.

Pours a clear, golden amber color with a slight head. The aroma is very strong with peaches and more peaches. The taste is smooth and light. The wheat mixes very nicely with peach flavor to create an overall refreshing taste that is quite sweet. Finishes with a sweet peach after taste. Perhaps a bit of a girly beer, but it does make for a great summer beer.

I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Hazy golden color with a half a fingers worth of white head. Fair amount of lacing.

Smell- Peach with a hint of grass and wheat.

Taste- Sweet peach at the start with a mellow wheat malt finish.

Mouthfeel- Light to medium bodied and well carbonated. Crisp.

Overall- A nice change of pace. I wouldn't drink this all the time but I could see myself enjoying this every once in a while this summer.

Poured this fruit beer from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. It poured a clear golden color, produced a thin white head, average retention and some lacing left on the glass. The aroma is very nice, full of peaches. Light in body, this beer is very well balanced, soft wheat, intense peach nectar flavor. Great summer beer, excellent session beer- Unique. Prost!

12 ounce bottle poured into a shaker style glass.

Appearance: hazy yellow to start but it gradually clears up.
White fizzy head that does not last long but leaves some decent lace.
Aroma: big peachy aroma right on top with some alcohol in the back.
Taste: peachy from the start. A little bit boozy with some hop bitterness on the back
end.
Palate: not quite thin but not real heavy on your tongue. Smooth lingering finish with the peaches and alcohol hanging on a bit.
Overall: first I will say I am not a big fan of this style but objectively speaking it is a pretty good summer beer. Given the choice between this and some of the "lemonade" beers out there I would drink this first and always.

A: A hazy muted straw color, soapy white head with no lacing

S: like a big juicy peach smacking you in the nose, very pleasant smell. There is just a touch of malt and wheat hanging around

T: Not as peachy as i thought it would be. I got more malt and wheat flavors with just a touch of peach thrown in.

M: dry and medium bodied, well carbonated

O: pretty good beer, I really enjoyed the big peach smell but I expected it to be a bit sweeter than it was. That said it was still very enjoyable and a fine representation of a fruit beer.

Served in a Chicago Bears shaker pint glass.

Even though this is the first time I'm having it, I was glad to hear this guy was going year-round. It always seemed like a tasty option to have, no matter the season. Let's see if I've been in any way right: It pours a hazy pale straw topped by about a half-finger or so of white foam. A strong sniff brings out a wave of peach (or is it apricot?), backed by some meek wheat and what may or may not be a pinch of coriander. I kinda like it... The taste holds notes of wheat, lemon zest, tangerine zest, light apricot Jolly Rancher (man, does that take me back...), and coriander. Things come across as a touch muddled, a touch pithy, and a touch musty. These things hurt my perception of this beer's flavor (how's that for a mechanical sentence, eh?). The body is light, with a light moderate carbonation and a wet feel. Overall, a generally alright beer, nothing special, but I could see drinking this again, though not necessarily as my first choice/option.

Poured into a pint glass.

It's an unfiltered gold with a white head and lots of bubbles.

It smells like those peach rings candy.

It's got a very large peach flavor. There is also a nice bittering hop bite as well as a soft wheat sweetness.

It's pretty light with a good bit of carbonation.

A good before for breakfast.

3.08/5  rDev -13.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a relatively clear blonde. Head comes up to maybe half a finger before receding to a broken sheet. Body carbonation's active and pleasant to look at.

S - Smells just like peach candy. This is a good scent. This is not a good beer aroma.

T - The peach is overpowering, but that's clearly the goal. I think my issue with this balance is that just underneath the wave of juicy peach, there's clearly the wheat trying to cry out. A fresh, crisp wheat that teases the tongue like it's playing decoy for the peach-fist haymaker behind it. I'd like to be able to taste a bit more of both at once. That said, the peach? Dead on peach - but though it's not artificial tasting, it is a little syrupy.

M - Zest from the carbonation. Sugar leaves a little bit of a pucker on the back of the tongue.

Overall - Don't let the review fool you. This is a beer that's as easy to be critical of as it is to enjoy. No, it doesn't stand up to scrutiny. It has big balance issues and heavy-handed candy flavor. It's not a great beer. But it's a rather unique beer, and the issues seem to distract from the fact that it's plain enjoyable. It's a refreshing beverage, worth a shot. It has its place.

I really was amazed how close this beer smelled to Peach-O's, which unfortunately meant I found it a bit too sweet. I would definitely try it again, particularly on a warm summer afternoon. Although this isn't a beer I'd be fond of being seen with, I certainly have to give O'Fallon credit for pushing the envelope.

Edit: After drinking another, I find this beer to be far too sweet to be drinkable. It's unfortunate, as I've got another 3 in my fridge!

This one comes out a straw yellow, pretty cloudy with a good sized white head. Retention and lacing are pretty good as it settles down to a lingering film.

Sweet peach yogurt in my face! It may be a bit potent for those who like subtle fruit flavor, but it certainly delivers a peachy nose.

The peach assault is a bit more subdued in the mouth. The base beer is a nice solid wheat, and the peach flavors add a nice tart character, and a medium amount fruitiness.

It goes down pretty easily and finishes on the dry side. There's not too much body, but that's not really the objective. The carbonation is relatively mild but delivers crispness. This one's definitely not gonna be a problem to drink... quickly (which is good because I wouldn't want my guy friends to see me drinking it).

Trying to do this from memory so forgive me if this is jumbled. Has a very light and faint smell (of peach obviously). The taste is a problem for me. The beer is sweet and is easy on the palate, but the taste is simply not here for me. I can not honestly say what can be done differently to improve, but the taste almost makes it too much like drinking juice.

However, this beer is perfect if only drinking one or two at dinner or on a hot summer day.
