A BeerSmart Review:

I always want to be fair accurate and truthful in my reviews and get right to the point. This was a deliciously looking draft, clear with a light effervescent head. It looked like an easy-to-drink, flavorful, summertime staple.

Call it a bad tap, bad batch or simply a bad beer, but the highly anticipated instant taste of peach was quickly overpowered by the taste of women's perfume. A second palate clearing sip ended with the same result. If this sounds appealing this may be your beer, but for this craft beer lover it's most definitely not.

Bottom line: UNFINISHABLE

Serving type: on-tap

P: Hazed orangish golden body with no head.

S: Artificial peach and wheat.

T/M: More artificial peach less wheat. This reminds me of a flat peach faygo or maybe a peach flavored Mich Ultra. The carbonation was not there and the body was thin.

O: If this was not a $3 special I would have complained and sent it back. I'm highly disappointed in this considering how many people rave about this beer. I hate being so negative but I liked nothing that this beer had to offer. I wouldn't put this on your shirt list.

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.

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.

look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 1 | overall: 2

A: Dark amber, nearly brown color and hazy to the point of being nearly opaque. Definitely too dark for the style. Minimal head, which disappears quickly. I don't see any carbonation bubbles in the glass which is weird.

S: Smells like peaches, but more like what you get from a Jolly Rancher than a fresh peach. It smells pretty good, but it doesn't have any other complementing scents.

T: At first there's a strange bite (possibly hops), and then the peach flavor comes in to wash it away. The aftertaste is a mellow wheat and peach flavor. It's not that great of a flavor though, it has a sickly taste to it and it is under-carbonated. The only thing saving this beer is the peach flavor.

M: This is highly under-carbonated. Not only can I not see any carbonation bubbles rising in the glass (and I do mean any), but I can't taste it.

O: Overall I didn't like this beer. It has a peachy smell and taste which is nice, but it's flat! I would not recommend this beer, and will not buy it again.
