this is probably one of my favorite fruit beers,my sister loves this beer so i figured i'd might as well review it.

pours a hazy golden color with a nice head,decent lacing.

smells like wheat with a dry peach scent.pretty good.

taste:a nice blend of wheat and peach.finishes dry,which i think suits the style well.

mf=pretty carbonated,almost like a cider but the wheat flavors lets you know it's a beer.

drinkability-during a hot summer,this is an extremely refreshing beer.

Pours a cloud pale yellow color with a small white head.

Scent of peach syrup and wheat. I wasn't really expecting much, but the peach and wheat characters blend together nicely.

Taste of peaches, citrus, and wheat. Light and tasty, a refreshing warm weather beer.

Mouthfeel is light bodied with strong carbonation.

I will be drinking this one regularly in the summer months to come, I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Sampled on 5-13-09

Pours an extremely light and pale yellow, completely opaque. A thin white head stays in one thin ring right at the top.

Smell is sweet peach right up front. One dimensional, but very different and rather pleasant.

Taste is all thick breadiness, with a slight peach flavor that becomes cloyingly sweet after a second. The finish is sticky and yeasty.

Mouthfeel is very slick, but not that bad.

Drinkability is decent, but the sweetness is a little unbalanced.

Overall, good potential, but not quite there.

3.38/5  rDev -5.1%

Pours a very effervescent straw with a pinky of pearl white head. Average head retention & lacing

S: Canned peaches & apple blossom, plus some metallic hints lurking as this warms

T: Peach juice, tartness, dryness & some honey up front. Peach, honey & apricot mingle as this warms, plus more tartness. Finishes peachy with pronounced tartness & a hint of lemon

MF: Light/medium bodied, near perfect carbonation, verging on over carbonation

Drinks alright, I can't see me doing any more than 2 unless I am in a jam or it's really hot. This just isn't my cup of tea; my wife really likes it

Pours a hazy light yellow color with a very fizzy white head that fades to nothingness in a hurry.

Smell is quite peachy. Has a few orange peel notes and almost has a wit-like feel to it. One of the more delicious smelling fruit beers I have come across. For me, peaches have an excellent smell and the other fruit and spice notes add a nice contrast.

Taste is light and refreshing, I dig this one. Peachy and acidic, has a nice wheat tang and is very clean. This would be a nice summertime drinker and should even appeal to people who claim they dont like the taste of "beer". A classic 'panty dropper'. I will buy this again next time I see it.

O'Fallon Wheach pours a hazy golden color with a tall white head that falls to a thin cap after just a couple of minutes - no lacing.

The smell is heavy with the aroma of peaches.

The taste peachy again with some malt and a tinge of hops at the end.

Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with a fairly clean finish.

Drinkability is alright. I may try this one again when summer comes.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of Phil. Tried 13 Sep 2008.

Smally white head quickly dissipates in the glass. Golden peachy color. Smells like overripe peaches with some salty/mineraly background. Fairly light in flavor, peach, sweet and sour. Slight hint of lemon. Peach flavor seems somewhat one dimensional, not sure if this is made with real peaches or not. Light body.

Overall not offensive but would not get this again.

3.1/5  rDev -12.9%

Appearance: Pours a clear pale golden color; the bubbly head quickly descends and fails the lacing test

Smell: Wow, lots of overripe peaches; I can almost smell the fuzz on the peach, but it's just a bit much

Taste: Swirling it around in my mouth, the flavor is lovely, like fresh peach juice; the problem comes after the swallow, when the bready wheat flavors join the fray; the flavors just don't come together for me

Mouthfeel: Light body with prickly carbonation; a bit chalky on the finish

Drinkability: So much promise, but in the end a let-down; I don't much care for this at all

Thanks, rsyberg01, for the opportunity

S - Strong peach aroma

T - Strong peach with hints of wheat on the end of every siip.

M - Thin and smooth, good for the style

This is a nice summer beer. It has both strong wheat and strong peach aromas. It pours with a semi white gold head that goes quick with not much lace. It has a very abundant peach flavor. It has a crisp and clean mouth feel with a mild hops finish. This beer is very refreshing.

I'm not a huge fan of wheat beers, but this O'Fallon offering does not disappoint. Lots of Peach aroma from this one, and a good - although not overpowering - peach taste. Poured into a pint glass and enjoyed with no complaints. Even the lady enjoyed this one - very light and had good drinkability. Some sediment pours with each bottle, similar to O'Fallon brews I've had in the past. Worth a few extra bucks to have a decent fruit beer if you can find it. I've never been disappointed by O'Fallon, although I've never been able to find their beer in great supply. A few six packs here and there is usually the case. This definitely stacks up well against some of the other summer brews...if only it was more widely available! I would like to see this offering on tap and compare to the bottle...

3.45/5  rDev -3.1%

A - pours a clear yellow with a small head that dissipates quickly and a lot of carbonation
S - peach, peach, and more peach. Also, there is a faint bit of malts
T - starts off with malt, which is quickly followed by a huge hit of peach. Following this is a weird hop/wheat/salt combination that really took me by surprise.
M - thin and carbonated
D - this was a lot better than I was expecting it to be. Definitely a twist on a the regular wheat beer. I would recommend if you are looking to try something that is light and refreshing.

A- Hazy straw yellow with small cider like white head that quickly disappears.

A- Has the aroma of peaches, sortof that same smell from opening a can of peaches.

T- Wheat and peach flavor. Has a slightly grainy taste. The peach flavor is not overwhelming on chemical tasting. No overwhelming peach aftertaste either.

M- Medium bodied and Medium carbonation.

D- This has always been a favorite summer beer of mine and anyone who likes peaches can definitely appreciate wheach. Head retention could be improved upon though.

From notes 8-11-08

Eye: Good on the eye as well as the nose. Head formation and retention is okay, (I can't really judge the falling head now because my nose touched it and shortly after it started to collapse. Beforehand though it was stable....) texture of the head is pillowy, and color is off-white, with hints of tangerine color in there. Lacing is poor. The beer itself is cloudy dark yellow with hints of brown in it.

Nose: Heavy peach aroma, reminds me of the way that Quaker Peach Oatmeal smelled (oatmeal aroma aside). Smells great, but not much more than the peach aroma. Nice strong fruit aroma, I like that when it comes to fruit beers.

Tongue: Lots of wheat flavor in this beer. The peach flavor is up front along with an ever so slight tartness and then is quickly backed by a full flavored wheat taste. Hops are just enough to give some balancing bitterness. Not all that much in terms of hop flavor though, maybe just a tad floral.

Mouthfeel and Drinkability: Medium-light body.I don't know why but it just feels heavier on the palate. Quite refreshing on a hot day, but not one I think I'd sit down and session, good for every now and then again. This is one I'm glad I've tried, but I don't think that I'd go out seeking this beer. Nice for the hot weather, but I'd really rather have an Oberon.

Ever used bisquick and canned peaches to make a fruit crumble? Thats what this beer reminds me of. Its acceptable but thats about it. This beer smells just like anything peach--peach iced tea, peach flavored spirits--a heavy artificial scent. Pours very hazy-typical of a wheat beer. Flavor is Peach in the front and biscuit in the end. Minor hints of wheat. Its a worthwhile effort at a beer that is difficult. Fruit flavored beer is tough to make taste ok. This might be a fun case to have at a backyard bbq for the people who don't drink much beer or drink the macros a lot.

12oz brown served in a shaker pint. Appears to be bottle conditioned. Poured a slightly hazy pale gold with a quickly dissipating head. Lots of peach in the aroma. Nice wheat beer base. Light bodied. The peach flavor really works, not overpowering. Very refreshing and easy to drink. I came into this beer with low expectations, but came away impressed.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a Sam Adams BL glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy golden color with about an inch or so white head. The head goes away pretty quickly. The aroma is nice, it smells like peaches and some wheat too, but mostly peaches. Taste is the same as the aroma, it's mostly peach with some wheat in there. Mouthfeel/body is light with a good amount of carbonation. Drinkability is good, it would be easy to have quite a few of these on a hot day as it's very refreshing and easy to drink. Overall I think this is a decent fruit beer, I'd pick it up again.

3.68/5  rDev +3.4%

A: Pours a pale amber, more or less what I'd expect from any sort of wheat beer.

S: Smell is strongly of peaches, but with subtle notes of wheat beer blended in behind the fruitiness

T: Immediate taste is of peaches, but this taste fades pretty quickly. Aftertaste leaves something to be desired, but isn't bad. Overall, the taste is pretty mild.

M: Relatively thin with moderate carbonation, again pretty much what you'd expect from an average wheat

D: Definitely easy to drink, especially on a hot summer day.

Overall, not really a beer to seek out unless you enjoy peach flavor (which I do), but if you do, not a bad beer to drink on a hot day. Room for improvement, to be sure, but not bad as it is.

Pours a cloudy pale orange color with a large one inch head. Poor retention.

Aroma is pretty neat. Definitely peaches, and a familiar wheat base.

Taste is pretty nice actually. A nice fruity front with a huge peach note. Follows up with a pale wheat finish. Just tasty and light.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and perfectly carbonated.

Drinkability is fairly high. Easy flavors and low alcohol make this beery simple, refreshing, and easy to consume. A nice summmer beer IMO.

3.13/5  rDev -12.1%

Pours a hazy medium yellow with very little head. The smell is 95% peach and 5% wheat. The taste is also dominated by the peach, somewhat sweet with subtle wheat notes and a very peachy aftertaste. This has a nice mouthfeel, refreshing and light. It would be difficult to drink more than a few in one sitting due to the high peach priority, but a decent and refreshing beer none the less.

Pours with a cloudy peach colored hue. Small head, no lacing.

Smell is very fruity , peachy.

Taste is all peach, not much else going on.

Mouthfeel is thin , good carbonation.

Overall an easy drinking one dimensional peach beer. I'd probably pass at getting this again, but wouldn't have a problem drinking another.

3.13/5  rDev -12.1%

Poured a light golden/orange color with a thin bit of white head, a smidge of lacing.

Smell had a huge fresh peach smell at first which quickly dulled to a light caramel malt with just a touch of peach.

Flavor had a thin malt and wheat flavor with a touch of yeast and a mild bit of fresh peaches.

Mouthfeel was thin with lots of carbonation and a hint of dryness.

Easy enough to drink, not terrible, but a bit thin and very one dimensional.

Wow this has to be the shortest review I'm ever going to do. The aroma is peach jolly rancher. The taste is peach jolly rancher with just a grainy/corny sweetness. The mouthfeel is light and crisp, with a good carbonation. I find it hard to drink because of the artificial peachiness but I could see how someone really would like it.

Pours cloudy pale yellow. Modest white head quickly disappears without even leaving a ring.

Aroma is definitely peach. Slight artificial quality.

Taste is initially eclipsed by sweet peaches, then there is a mild grainy quality, along with some pale malt. Perhaps a touch of honey and lemon. Finish does have unidentifiable hops, providing a splash of bitterness.

Mouthfeel is on the light side.

If peach is your thing this is the beer for you. Unfortunately, the peach flavor has a sweet artficial aspect to it. I'm left feeling uninspired.
