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.

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.

I must have gotten a bad bottle or something cause this stuff was absolutely horrible.

One of only 2 craft brews I could/would not finish. Most of the time even if I don't like it I'llstill finish it but I just ccouldn't. Down the drain and like $2-$3...

the one thing that was perfect on this beer was the smell... a full nice ripe peach smell.. even the beer itself smelt semi good...

Taste.... God awfull... ugh... taste burnt or overdone on the malt... peach taste is there but nowhere near the smell.. if you ever homebrewed and you got that one bad batch where you did something wrong... well this was that...

Overall I will return to it cause I'm certain I tasted an old or just plain ol bad batch.. but if this is what this beer is than I am mortified... sad to say but Id pick a big brewery beer over this one.
