This is what happens when you try to get cute with beer. I had such high hopes for this stuff. Heard it was the iconic beer of RJ Rockers. Looked great. Smelled great. Everything seemed to be going well until I took that first sip then . . . . I'm not sure what they have done to this beer. The peach flavoring must come from the peach pit. It doesn't taste much like peaches. As much as it pains me to say it, Bud Light Lime is much better. I'm just thankful I didn't buy a growler of it.

A: Dark amber, nearly brown color and hazy to the point of being nearly opaque. Definitely too dark for the style. Minimal head, which disappears quickly. I don't see any carbonation bubbles in the glass which is weird.

S: Smells like peaches, but more like what you get from a Jolly Rancher than a fresh peach. It smells pretty good, but it doesn't have any other complementing scents.

T: At first there's a strange bite (possibly hops), and then the peach flavor comes in to wash it away. The aftertaste is a mellow wheat and peach flavor. It's not that great of a flavor though, it has a sickly taste to it and it is under-carbonated. The only thing saving this beer is the peach flavor.

M: This is highly under-carbonated. Not only can I not see any carbonation bubbles rising in the glass (and I do mean any), but I can't taste it.

O: Overall I didn't like this beer. It has a peachy smell and taste which is nice, but it's flat! I would not recommend this beer, and will not buy it again.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a hazy light brassy hue with a two finger foamy white head.

The smell featured full blown sweat peach nectar, and that's it.

The taste consisted of a cloyingly sweet peach nectar with a slight as semblance of wheat malt in tow. A real mess.

The mouthfeel was strangely thin and astringent.

Not a very pleasant experience. This beer should be dialed down to about 4% and feature a stronger wheat profile.

From the bottle at SAVOR 2011. Served in a goblet.

ours a slightly-cloudy peach color with a small white head and a few spots of lacing on the way down. The nose brings peach character that is reminiscent of a Jolly Rancher. Very artificial. The taste is the same way, except it tastes like artificial sweetener as well. Too sweet and that's in a bad way. Not a fan at all.

Served from tap into a standard pint. Poured a yellow-orange with one-finger white head that reduces and stays throughout. Maintains decent lacing. The aroma of this one is dominated by peaches. The flavor starts out with subtle peach with some grainy notes with the peaches intensifying upon swallowing. Overall, this is not my favorite beer from the RJ Rockers brewery. Has a nice peach followup that is quite crisp, but also has a poor flavor up front. It is not horrible, but I am not a fan.
