One of the pleasant surprises of my first trip to the Myrtle, SC area. The basket of peaches we picked up at the flea market was good too!

Appearance - a very cloudy, dare I say 'fuzzy' pour. Peachy color for sure, a finger of flat-white foam.

Aroma - pure peach. Intense, fruity and fresh. Good stuff.

Taste - a fair but negligible base malt, some grainy sweetness. Nearly no identity to it though, as the sweet peach flavor is fairly immediate and dominating. The peach flavor is on the sweeter side but with lots of supporting fruitiness. A nice bit of hop balance on the swallow, and the peach stays to the very end.

Mouthfeel - smooth stuff, not too heavy, modestly carbonated.

Drinkability - a fine summer brew, very smooth and easy to knock back. Popular with all but the the most diligent of fruit beer nazis, lol.

Pint on-tap at Reiley's pub & grill (amazing food, by the way).

Great looking pour--brassy blonde body with a well retained tuft of bleached white suds. Clear, with a healthy carbonation level. Aroma is exactly what the beer advertises: peachy. Big, fruity peach notes atop a solid wheat base. Smells like real fruit, too, not that extract crap, which figures for a beer made in Peach Country.

Flavor is sweet and fruity up front with fresh peach notes leading the way, but it fades too quickly into a halfway-decent wheat ale with a slight tinge of hoppiness and mineral water. Mouthfeel is crisp and well carbonated with a light body. Easy drinking fruit beer, this. Give 'Son of a Peach' a try if you happen to cross paths.

The beer pours a hazy yellow-orange with a giant foamy head that takes several minutes to settle. There was great lacing and retention before settling. There is heavy sediment and cloudiness. The nose is sweet with a huge amount of peach fruitiness. The taste doesn't follow the beer's nose with a slight amount of peach and a big amount of wheat and yeast. The mouthfeel is as expected, not too thick/thin, but there is an odd aftertaste that deviates from my expectations. I would probably drink this beer again, but I'd opt for an Ithaca apricot wheat instead.

R.J. Rocker Son of a Peach has a very thick, off-white head, a semi-clear, deep golden (peachy, even) appearance, with lots of intense bubble streams and roiling brown chunks. Thick lacing is left behind. The aroma is of peaches and a hint of bread. Taste is of peaches, sugar, syrup, bread, and a touch of bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and R.J. Rocker Son of a Peach finishes dry, refreshing, sweet, and easy going. Overall, this is one of the better fruit beers I have had.

A - Hazy honey colored, light cream head.

S - Candied peaches mostly. Pretty overwhelming, maybe light hints of a typical wheat beer.

T - Sulfury peach flavored Flintstone's vitamins. Medicinal and fake peach flavor. I'm really stressing to find something good to say about the flavor. But it escapes me.

M - Other than the lingering sulfuric finish, the body is appropriately light and well carbonated
