12 ounce bottle - $2.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Bottled on: 05/29/2014

Appearance: Pours an amber-golden body strewn with some fine particulates and capped with nearly an inch of off-white foam.

Smell: Displays a bready, moderately sweet-scented aroma drenched in nostril prickling alcohol, giving an ill sign of things to come.

Taste: Bready, honey-glazed maltiness with a full-on fruity dose of peach puree, a couple drops of vanilla, and a big pop of low-grade schnapps which easily borders on a stinging, medicinal quality which mercifully drags out into the aftertaste and settles into a belly-warming tincture.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Minor stickiness present.

Overall: With a sneer, R.J. Rockers asked of Son of a Peach, "who's your daddy?" Apparently, it's this boozy deadbeat asshole.

poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

The beer pours a hazy amber/orange color with little to no head. What little head that there is dissipated quickly leaving behind no lacing at all.

The beer smells mainly of peach preserves, but there is a definite bready/malty undertone and is capped with a slight booziness

The flavor is sweet and sticky, comprised mainly of peach jam/preserves with a sweet malty backbone and a definite boozy finish. Not bad but not as good as Son of a Peach

Overall, this is not a bad beer, but it is not something that I would seek out again. This beers smaller version "Son of a Peach" is good, even if a little one dimensional, but this bigger version seems to have muddied the waters in their effort to create a more complex beer.

- 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.

Served on tap at Summit's Wayside Tavern in Snellville September 4, 2012. Reviewed from notes.

(Appearance) Very deep hazy peach tea tones, light wispy head and mild carbonation. 4

(Smell) Peaches in heavy peach syrup, syrupy cobbler malt base. Not particularly groundbreaking in originality but appealing should you like peaches. 3

(Taste) Taste is mildly sweet dessert like peach cobbler, light peach syrup, caramel drizzle with a muted semi dry roasted cracker crust finish. I actually found the flavor profile limited somewhat which did not excite the flavor profile much. Sweetness wasn't overkilled on the palate, a big plus in terms of drinkability. Not much beyond spiked peaches and a bit of malt where a ton of body could be, but the alcohol is concealed surprisingly well for such a high gravity beer. 3.5

(Mouthfeel) Taste is sweet, silky smooth, even a bit fuzzy. Alcohol presence is quite low, body is medium. Texture is probably best as the malt bill isn't the main feature of this beer, but with a bit more body and dimension the carbonation could afford to increase. 4

(Overall) In terms of beer, this is hardly there. There's a ton of peach flavor but not much body to build any complexity to the flavor profile. The end result is short of a slightly dry, slightly unsweetened peach cobbler. Drinkability will vary depending on the drinker's peach cravings, but my bet is that a maximum of 1 decent glass of this will do the job for most. 3.5
