A - A very cloudy golden color. TONS of sediment floating in the glass...obviously unfiltered. I am a sucker for sediment floating through out the beer

S - Peaches, peaches, and more peaches. That is all

T -Sweet peaches. Millions of peaches, peaches for me

M - Medium bodied, lots of carbonation

O - For those who love Peach. Seriously. It dominates everything else.

A - Color is a hazy peach colored amber. Head is a pretty good half inch with slight sticky lacing. Damn big chunks of sediment.

S - Smells like peach schnapps with a mild wheat backbone. Smells pretty good actually.

T - Well it actually doesn't have too much sweet taste more of a natural fruit skin kind of flavor. Tart and acidic with the wheat working into the flavor. Damn I wanted more sweet... Actually tastes like beer.

M - Medium bodied something about the body makes it hard to drink.

Overall well I can't get this locally and really don't want to drink it again. Was different that sweeter, artificial flavored peach beers.

12 oz bottle served in a Duvel tulip.

Pours a cloud peach amber with a quickly fading soapy off white head. Aroma is canned peach syrup with light wheat and straw. Grainy wheat body with surprisingly not as much sweetness as expected. Still artificial peach sweetness dominates throughout and syrup lingers through the finish. Syrupy, medium thick body with low carbonation. Well, I enjoyed this more than I expected and it had less Jolly Rancher like quality to it than others have attributed, but still not something I'd return to.

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.
