look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy gold.honey. Head is white and has almost no retention. Drops to a tiny cap and a slightly bigger, chunkier collar. Some vestiges of lacing.

Smell: Peach flesh, peach juice. Nice building fruit sweetness layered over a mild wheat tang. Almost smells like peach gummi rings. Juicy fresh fruit. A little bit of sugary sweetness. Nice balance of pale malts and wheat. A little grassiness as it warms up. Really all about the fresh peach goodness.

Taste: Mild grassy hops. Nice balance of wheat and pale malts. Cracker-like pale malts. Crisp breadiness. Peach flavor is less dominant than the nose would indicate. Nice fresh, juicy peach flesh plays up front and drops to the malt backbone in quick order. Incredibly clean. Some building earthiness as well.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, and refreshing. Moderate carbonation. Incredibly easy to drink.

Overall: You could do a lot worse when drinking this style with fruit.

Nice use of fruit. Balances well. Smells like deliciousness, but drinks a little shy of that goal. Bonus points for being refreshing.

A - Gold in color. Unfiltered. A lot floating around in there. Highly carbonated. Good amount of sediment in the bottom of the bottle.

S - Smells of fresh peaches.

T - I get the wheat and a good amount of peach flavor.

M - Feels great on the tongue. Light and refreshing.

O - One of my favorite summer time brews. I find it refreshing after cutting the lawn or relaxing on my patio. This years offering had a lot more floating around in my glass. Kinda weird watching those chunks working around in there. I look forward to this brew every summer.

Served this beer on tap, in a pint glass. Poured a cloudy, golden color, produced a nice white head, great retention and left ample amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of malted wheat, and Peaches! Medium bodied, the base of this American Wheat Ale consisted of soft malted wheat, clover honey, and fresh Peaches. Sweet and semi tart, there is not any noticeable hop flavor. The Peach aroma is stronger then the taste- it actually is a very nice balance of peach and malted wheat. There is a fine line when adding fruit to a Wheat Ale and RJ Rockers did a good job of not crossing it with this ale.

I poured a bottle into a mug.

Appearance- Cloudy golden color with two and a half fingers worth of foamy head. Great head retention with a nice amount of lacing.

Smell- Nothing but peaches.

Taste- Peach and wheat flavor with a slight hoppy finish. The peach flavor is not as strong as the smell.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with a nice amount of carbonation. Very crisp.

Overall- A very good fruit beer. If you are a fan of this style then you must try this one.

A - Hazy golden orange color with a white lacy carbonation head.

S - Smells of Peach cobler

T - Taste is of peach puree with wheat and a delightful hoppy finish. Not IPA hoppy, but enough to know it's there. .Lingering peach flavor on the back end as well.

M - I would say it's medium to light bodied. Just the right carbonation .

O - This type of beer is not for everyone. The massive amount of peaches steers many away. I really like it. It is quite different, but refreshing. It packs a punch for it's style at around 6%. Not an overly fan of wheat beers, but this one works for me.
