3.25/5 rDev -7.9%
[Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]
The pour was a hazy medium brownish orange with a huge (3-4 finger) off white rocky head that lasted throughout, thus producing thick sheets of foamy sticky lacing.
The aroma was all about the peaches along with a mild biscuit malt and a sweet moldy yeast and not much else.
The taste was moderately sweet an a tad acidic with a strong wheat presence in the beginning, progressing with a slight bitterness along with a mild tartness and a bold peach flavor towards the finish. The flavor lasted and average duration proceeding the swallow, with a light bitter peach aftertaste that faded slowly off the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was a few steps below medium in body with a thin dry texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall I thought this was an average tasting brew, with a lot of peach flavor and a touch of wheat. I think it would make a good dessert beer, and would pair very well with some cobbler…

Tasted On: 06-19-2011
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle
Glassware: Weizen glass
Freshness: Not indicated
Purchased: 6-pack from Frugal McDougals, Charlotte
A: Cloudy beer of dark yellow-orange color. Head is only about 1 finger high and seems small for a wheat beer poured in a weizen glass. Lacing is very low.
S: Aroma is strong of peaches and fruit. No malt or hop aromas.
T: Taste is mainly of peaches -- tangy with a fruity bitterness. I don't get the sweetness that some reviewers noted.
M: Mouthfeel is crisp with medium-high carbonation. Aftertaste is of a lingering bitterness and peach flavor.
O: An OK beer for hot weather relief. They definitely hit the mark for a peach-tasting beer, but is not one I would seek out again.

3.75/5 rDev +6.2%
A: A very cloudy orange color with chunks of yeast floating. Thin white head.
S: Almost smells like fresh peaches and cream. A nice wheat aroma to it also.
T: It almost tastes like an orange creamsicle with a little bit of peach mixed in. Finishes a little bit bitter and dry with a lingering peaches and cream flavor.
M: Very smooth mouthfeel with light carbonation. About as drinkable as it gets.
O: The flavors in this beer are very nice. If you like peach beers then I would recommend this one. It differs from others in the fact that it finishes dry which I like. Some others can be over the top sweet.

Glass: Shaker Pint.
Appearance: Apricot, caramel, orange color. Hazy.
Smell: Like a can of peaches or peache gummies. Sweet and delicious.
Taste: Overly sweet peaches, slightly artificial in taste. Wheat aftertaste comes through mid sip.
Mouthfeel: Oily dry finish. Medium body with light carbonation.
Overall: An easy drinking beer, great with food or on a hot day. Wish the peaches came rhrough a little more tart instead of sweet.

Ahh, RJ Rockers... I'm actually surprised to be reviewing one of their beers. Down here in their home state of South Carolina, they're rather maligned by the beer geeks... perhaps unfairly, but I've never enjoyed their beers. Until Son of a Peach!
A. Cloudy, hazy and appears to be bottle conditioned. There is a LOT of sediment floating in this dingy deep yellow brew. There's a wheaty white head that fades but refuses to die completely, and the beer itself is charmingly ugly.
S. Bryers peach ice cream. Sweet and creamy. That's honestly about it. Odd, I know.
T. Huh, this is interesting... this isn't just a peach beer, it's a peaches & cream beer... think peaches over ice cream, peaches with cool whip... it's got a real sweet peachness to it that is backed by some bittering hops and a little citrus character, but nothing too big. The finish, oddly, is bitter and just leaves a faint impression of peach, like all the sugar was sucked out. I'm not quite sure how to explain it, but if you love peaches you should be a-okay here.
M. Wet and somewhat lowly carbonated from the bottle. Finish is sour and just a bit medicinal with lots of peach flavor, but little sweetness.
D. Not bad at all... drink more than a few of these and the sweetness will get ya, but I blended it 50/50 with Oberon and it was absolutely delightful. I like it and will buy it again next year.
RJ Rockers, you are capable of making good beer. I admit it.

A- nice peachy color here, really gets the thing started on a peach-note. Surpeisingly good head retention and really sticky lacing throughout.
S- Peaches. Not much else to report here, no wheat or yeast. Maybe a little bit of a peaches and cream smell. Smells great though, but one dimensional.
T- falls short of the smell, tastes a little watered down, but still really refreshing.
O- this is an incredibly quaffable session beer for the summertime. I wish it had more dimension to it, like some tartness or hops, which would really round out this brew.
