On tap at the brewery. (Formerly "impeachment"?).

Nice peach/amber color with a very good head. Aroma is predominantly peach jam, with a similar taste until the more bitter-malty-hoppy finish. Fairly well hidden 9% ABV.

After trying several RJ brews and being only slightly satisfied, I thought I would try another. This one has a horrible smell but the taste has some potential. It has a slight taste of a creamsicle, unfortunately it seems to be watered down, sad !

The imperial version of Son of a Peach recently released by RJ Rockers. More alcohol and more peaches!

Served from tap into an RJ Rockers shaker by Mark himself. Poured a massively hazy yellow-orange with a minimal off-white head. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, peach, fruit, subtle alcohol, and spices. The flavor was of sweet malt, peach, wheat, bread, subtle alcohol, and coriander. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. I really like how they did this one compared to the prototype they had awhile back. The addition of coriander really added a nice touch to this one by helping to cut some of the sweetness from the peahces. When I said 'massively hazy' I mean no light can pentrate through the center of this thing. Crazy for a beer this light in color. Really nice to see Rockers branching out and trying new things. Really hope they continue to do so in the future as well. Tick.

- Brewed with coriander and fermented with peaches and natural flavors.

A: Dark peach orange tones are a perfect match with a dirty seashell white head that was thin, coarse and short lasting. Moderate carbonation presence with a thin weak, broken band of lace that barely caught the eye.

S: Nose was whole sweet, fuzzy peaches with a touch of dry alcohol. Moderate in strength, linear in complexity.

T: Peach malt, sweet with some aspect of the natural peaches coming through at first. Peach alcohol, peach schnapps? warmth on the finish. Fairly linear again in delivery.

M: Crisp around the tongues edges, sticky, sweet residual malt with a syrup like consistency.

O: Overall while not a bad beer, it is certainly not one that is gonna stand out, more of a 3.25 effort. Alright but there are much better peach based beers out there (selins grove, bullfrog) that are much more worthy of spending time on. This one was middle of the road, safe. Some natural peachiness, but also some of the added natural flavors that tasted a bit unnatural (extract additions). The brewery's name brings images of a tobacco giant (RJ Reynolds) merging with a planet hollywood type eatery trying to brew beer. Call me when you do a tomacco style.

A - A fairly active pour yields a fingers worth of crisp audibly fizzy khaki colored head... Limited retention gives way to a full creamy lacing... The color is a hazed pale copper... A moderate bit of moderate paced carbonation throughout but mostly at the top of the glass...

S - Peach is at the forefront as expected... Seems to have a certain artificial character about it... It is mixed with apricot, sweet orange juice and a hint of overly ripened cantaloupe... The end result is reminiscent of a freshly opened bag of gummy bears... All of the various fruit components sit atop a wheat and grassy base...

T - The palate is not as expected... There is no sweet fruitiness... Instead there is a surprising boozy presence... There is a funkiness that lingers as well... There is an astringent character throughout... A bit of a muddled mess... Slightly off putting... The off flavors linger on the finish for quite a while...

M - The astringency noted on the palate coats the mouth... Mild carbonation... A bit syrupy to start... A bit chalky on the finish...

D - Not sure what was intended here, but I clearly don't see the vision... An average appearance and aroma give way to a disappointed flavor profile and mouthfeel... Improves exponentially as this one warms a lit bit... It becomes more cohesive as it warms... Still not my favorite nor would I recommend what it has rebounded nicely from the hot mess it was becoming...
