was about finish the last bottle of a six pack I got awhile back and realized I hadn't reviewed this one yet.
Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass
A-poured a very cloudy ochre with about a 2 finger head that lasted quite a long time leaving a lot of lacing
S-lots of peaches in the smell not much else
T-light flavors of peaches like the smell just not much else to go along with it
M-nice carbonation give a good medium body
O-not bad nothing to get too excited about though but makes a nice refreshing brew for something a little different

Appearance is gold with particles a floating, the way a wheat should look. Smell is peachy, which it should have seeing it is named son of a peach. Mouthfeel, bright and evervecent on the tongue. Taste is nice, if you like peach. The right balance, reminds us of that syrip in canned peaches. Overall as wheat beer it is ok, your typical "style" beer. Will go well with pie and whipped cream. Ha.. Oh throw in some southern BBQ.

A Pours orange, cloudy and with a thin foam head. Minimal lacing. Sediment visible in glass.
S - The peach scent is incerdible. Smells natural, sweet, and inviting. A secondary wheat aroma is there too; smells like cooked pasta.
T - Flavors of peach are forefront. There is a bit of tangy citrus and grain taste as well. Just lots of flavor and if you like peaches you will love this.
M - Smooth flavors, a bit of a gritty feel to it. Light bodied.
O - This is a variant of what Cigar City does with Peach Jai-Alai. I think this is equally as good though as a different style. Really enjoying these folks from SC.

The smell of this beer is amazing with all the other elements paling in comparison. The color of the beer is interesting. Yes, it's cloudy but the bi-color peach and pinkish-orange brings to mind peach melba. The head isn't all that thick but it does stick around to the bottom of the glass.
When you get a whiff you don't want to stop smelling this beer. It smells like someone opened a can of sweet Cling peaches and poured a little bit of golden ale into it. This is addictive and I wish the taste had followed suit. The peach is still there, but dried out. The wheat helps to bring peach cobbler to your thoughts, well without the cinnamon. There is an acridness that doesn't kill the experience but I do wish it wasn't there as it messes with the mouthfeel. Otherwise this is a pretty nice beer.

Poured a honey gold color with a dense creamy snow white head that was genarous with lace.
Peachy malty goodness from THE PEACH STATE of South Carolina.
Very smooth peachy malty goodness again, well done.
creamy and easy drinking summer beer, for us in SC that summer is around 7 or 8 months.
I will say that this is outstanding for the style, a real lady pleaser to boot.

A: The beer is cloudy very dark yellow in color and has some subtle hints of orange. It poured with a thin off white head.
S: There are strong aromas of fresh peaches in the nose—almost so real that you can feel the peach fuzz.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but doesn’t have as strong flavors. There is little if any sweetness and more hints of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is quite light and refreshing. Despite all of the peaches, it’s not that difficult to drink because the flavor isn’t artificially sweet.

This brew poured out as a clear golden colored brew with a white head on top that hung around for a good amount of time. The smell of the beer has some nice peach aromas mixed with a touch of wheat as well. The taste of the beer is a little tart at first, catching me off guard. The more I drink the sweeter the taste of the peach becomes and the less sour it is. The mouthfeel of this beer is pretty nice, it's lighter bodied and refreshing in the warmer months. Overall this beer was enjoyable for me, I wouldn't drink it all the time but having it on random occasions wouldn't be bad.

A - Poured a hazy, golden orange colored body...the head was small and off white in color...it poured as a wispy cap and did not show much retention, but it did leave some lacing behind
S - Juicy peaches dominate the nose...they do come across a little concentrated though...some pale wheat lingers in the background
T - The peach flavor carries over and jumps out first...again it's coming across as peach juice concentrate...the wheat malt comes across a little sweet, but as it fades it brings in a drying aspect...the big thing I'm getting in the flavor profile is caramel dipped peaches...it keeps coming back to me
M - Medium bodied...juicy peaches...drying wheat malt takes away all sweetness
O - I actually had high hopes for this beer after hearing about it...it came across as just another average fruit beer...the peaches tasted as if they were concentrated and a big caramel dipped peach flavor kept coming back

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 - Really hazy orange-yellow beer with a small white head that didn't leave anything on the sides. Lots of fine floaty stuff in there that actually makes the beer sparkle a little bit. Kind of neat looking.
S - Smells like a wheat beer with just the slightest bit of peach taste.
T - Starts out with some fruit taste that seems a little more apricot than peach. It's not a bad fruit taste, falls a little bit flat at the end, kind of a carbonated wheat that is pretty unfulfilling. I had low expectations so it's okay for what it is.
M - Medium bodied with some tongue-biting carbonation. A bit fuller than what I was expecting.
O - Passable, but not near the realm of "good" wheat beers. Would pass on this in the future.

Bottle shared by Dan. Thanks!
A: The beer pours a hazy golden color with a finger of white head.
S: Definitely smells like a peach beer. Intense peach aroma that is a bit artificial and sugary, but good nonetheless. I'm actually reminded of Peach O's/Rings. Sort of a guilty pleasure thing.
T: Though I really liked the aroma, the flavor is really unimpressive. It's far too bitter for a fruit beer without enough peach flavor. A bit of bread and straw, and shockingly, not enough sugar/sweetness.
M: Light bodied with a medium carbonation.
O: This smelled really great, but the flavor was not very good.

I had this in Asheville, NC at the Thirsty Monk South. Happened to try this when a buddy ordered one. Color is amber/red. Aroma is of wheat and peaches. I'm not a huge peach fan, but this beer is refreshingly tasty. Fruit comes through well and is just sweet enough to be refreshing without being cloying. Would be a great beer on a hot day.

Extra sent by ridglens so thanks to him! No freshness info. Enjoyed on 08/22/11.
A - A little darker than expected. A hazy bright orange color with a small white head. Leaves very little lacing.
S - Smell is sugary sweet with the pale wheat aroma and the peach flavoring as well. Doesn't necessarily smell like natural peaches but I actually like it anyway.
T - Similar to the nose. Very sweet with the peach really coming through on the back end. Wheat sweetness up front. Finishes with a nice fruity flavor.
M - The mouthfeel is good. Nice and creamy with pretty low carb for a APWA.
O - Overall, this was a very enjoyable beer. Unique for sure.

A very simple beer, not much going for it. I'm not much for mixing beers, but this one cries out to be cut by a standard pale ale or a wit. Pours a pale amber with a thin head. Smells of unfiltered peach juice, heavy on the skins, and some soapiness. The taste is similar- starts pretty well but turns a bit tannic and acrid. Lacks some depth.

12 oz bottle served in a pint glass.
A - a cloudy light orange with visible particles in suspension and settling on the bottom. Looks thick. Has an off-white head with limited retention.
Aroma: Peach pie! Really strong impression of peach pie nearly hides some subtle notes of baked bread and light toasted grain. Smells very sweet.
T - Some sweetness in the taste, but a bit more tartness and some bitterness. Peach flavor remains, but becomes more like a liquor and less like a pie compared to the aroma. A tart wheat ale taste finally emerges in the finish and aftertaste, accompanied by canned peaches.
M: medium-to-full bodied; good carbonation level. Despite a near syrupy feel, there's some dryness on the finish.
O - a very peachy ale: a good candidate for the official state beer of SC.

Friend of mine got this and asked me to taste it. Murky orange pour with a small white head that fades fast. Huge peach aroma with a big syruppy peachy taste. Left a bit of an aftertaste that was hard to shake. The mouthfeel was pretty good. Overall, both my friend and I weren't big fans of this. I don't like to give bad ratings, so this was a tough decision to go ahead and rate it at all.

Shows up cloudy and orange with a creamy white head. Amazing retention but not a lot of lace.
Smell is full of sweet peaches and malt.
Taste is malty, peachy with hints of clove and pepper.
Rich, smooth and delicious. Medium effervescence with q fuller than medium body. Peachy aftertaste but not overwhelmingly so. Drink one, it makes a great dessert.

bottle poured into a tulip glass.
A- Pours a hazy gold with no head. Leaves no retention and has a bit of sediment.
S- Huge amount of sweet peaches with some cream. Not really any detection of wheat in the aroma but smells pretty sweet.
T- Not nearly as sweet as aroma, which I'm thankful for. Sweet peaches, a bit of cream and some spice.
M- Medium to high carbonation and medium body. Has a crisp mouthfeel and very drinkable
O- I was expecting a overly sweet beer, but am pleasantly surprised how drinkable it is. Not sure if I could have a ton of these, but it is a nice summer brew and above average for a fruit beer.

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.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Sam Adams pint.
A: Pours a hazy orange color with one-half finger of off-white head. Some retention and lace.
S: Fresh peach aromas backed by some sweet malt.
T: Peach comes up front, yields a bit to the underlying wheat flavors in the middle and continues through the end. Tiny bitterness on the finish. The flavor is good.
M: Light but not particularly interesting, just average.
O: A nice beer, the smell and flavor do a nice job, a good choice for a hot summers day. Worth a try.

Poured from a bottle an orange, peachy color into a pint glass. Medium carbonation and rather small, nectarine hued head.
Scent was of a sweet southern peach, reminded me of a a wonderful day on the South Carolina beach... Hints of orange and vanilla as well- fantastic.
Ahhhh... The first drink. Medium carbonation, with cool, refreshing taste of biting into a peach. The fact that I took the drink at the wonderful Red Hen restaurant on Johns Island, SC probably made this first sip even better. It continued to stay wonderful after that.
Good god was this a fantastic and enjoyable summer beer! Fantastic! I found a case at the Piggly Wiggly off of Kiawah and may buy another to take back to Pittsburgh with me. If you find it, buy 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.

Cloudy off orange pour with a small white head and minimal lacing. Artificial peach aroma, artificial peach flavor. Really not much else here. If you’re gonna make a peach brew at least make it taste like real, fresh peaches, not cheap, sticky sweet ones. As you may have guessed, didn’t think too much of this one. Sticky sweet finish and average carbonation. Can't believe this is their most popular beer. The girls must love it. That's probably the only market for it. The kind of girls that used to be a high school parties with wine coolers.

Reviewed from notes:
appearance: orangish yellow with a 1 finger white head
smell: sweet, peaches, malts, citrus
taste: sweet, tart, peaches, malts,
mouthfeel: mild carbonation, medium body,
overall: a decent summertime beer especially if you like peaches. I had no problem finishing the bottle but if you don't like peaches you might want to stay away.

They should call this beer "Extract of a Peach." I've never really been a big fan of RJ Rockers beers, and this is a prime example.
The appearance is a bit darker than a normal wheat beer. The smell is of peaches.
The taste is what is going to throw you to the ground -- really artificial. I don't know how much extract is added to this puppy, but they went overboard.
The mouthfeel is light and not really well carbonated.
Overall, this is an average to below average wheat beer that is slammed with extract. It's one of the reasons many beer drinkers are not big fans of fruit beers.
