2.75/5 rDev -27.6%
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.

3.28/5 rDev -13.7%
- 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.
