[Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]

The pour was a hazy medium brownish orange with a huge (3-4 finger) off white rocky head that lasted throughout, thus producing thick sheets of foamy sticky lacing.

The aroma was all about the peaches along with a mild biscuit malt and a sweet moldy yeast and not much else.

The taste was moderately sweet an a tad acidic with a strong wheat presence in the beginning, progressing with a slight bitterness along with a mild tartness and a bold peach flavor towards the finish. The flavor lasted and average duration proceeding the swallow, with a light bitter peach aftertaste that faded slowly off the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was a few steps below medium in body with a thin dry texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall I thought this was an average tasting brew, with a lot of peach flavor and a touch of wheat. I think it would make a good dessert beer, and would pair very well with some cobbler…

Okay, this is what I don't like about certain fruit beers. The brewery goes overboard. It becomes a liquid candy. It becomes less like beer and more like an Orange Crush or something. This one is a Peach Crush though. It's a wheat appearance. Cloudy and with small wheaty particles floating. The smell is overpowering peach. The taste is the same. The mouthfeel is okay with good carbonation. But, overall, if you like peaches... chill one and have it. This is less a beer and more like a mountain dew of peach beer.

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.

Another SE gem sent to me from billab914.

12oz bottle poured into my Deschutes Pint.

A - Pours a pale, cloudy medium orange with a thin, near-white head.

S - Strong peach, and that is it.

T - Peaches, and some wheat flavors.

D - Surprisingly mild and un-sweet for a fruit forward beer. Light in the mouht.

O - Overall, not bad. This isn't my favorite style, but I enjoyed this one.

Bought a 12 FL OZ bottle of this from the Wild Thing Cafe in Hilton Head Island, SC for $4.75. Poured from the Yellow Labeled bottle w/ an Angry Faced Peach on the front into a 12oz Hefeweizen Glass. Has no sign of a freshness date.

Aroma- A huge candied peach aroma is upfront. Delicious even on the nose! A wheat background hit the nose afterwards.

Appearance- Pours a .5 finger head that has average retention. Has a deep orange colored body with a nice glow to it. Leaves light lacing behind.

Flavor- Has a very artificial peach flavor but yet very candied at the same time. Wheaty background and seems to be filled with malt but a limited amount of hop. No bitterness.

Mouthfeel- Light Bodied, Medium-High Carbonation, Smooth, and a sweet, wheat filled background. The peach is a bit sour at the finish? Not quite appropriate for ANY style of beer with wheat involved.

Overall Impression- A decent brew by RJ Rockers but came a bit short in my books for this style. Too artificial and you can definitely find this in the mouthfeel... Would still order again because of its refreshing aroma and beginning of taste but not going to be on my top 100 list anytime soon.

From 6/3/10 notes. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

a - Pours a very murky brown-golden color with little off white head and little carbonation.

s - Smells very strongly of sweet peaches. Not too much else going on here.

t - Tastes of sweet peaches, fruity malts, and sugar. Way too sweet.

m - Medium body and low carbonation.

d - Ok, but too sweet for me. If you like peaches and sweet, fruity beers you might like this one. Wouldn't really look to try again.

3.33/5  rDev -5.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy orange (peachy?) glass pours with a huge white meringue head that was dense enough to have different texture and color as it dried out on top. The head was a little over the top in size but nice to see it last and coat the glass with sticky lace.

Smell: Full fruity nose, it says "fruit extract flavoring" to me, but does hit the peach mark. It overwhelms any other beer like smell.

Taste: Generally light flavor save for the pretty intense fruit aspect. Tastes a little Jolly Ranger, candied peach rather than a drippy ripe fruit. Nothing really wrong, just heavy handed on the fruit flavoring.

Mouthfeel: Medium light body, a bit fizzy in the carbonation, little oily finish that slowly soaks in.

Overall: A pretty good package, but a little to artificial and overdone for my tastes. The beer under it is pretty light lagerish, so not a lot of depth or complexity going on. Still, glad I tried it and would be welcome on a hot summer day.
Thanks to Illudium for the sample!

Fruit beers like this seem old school, or shall I say, so ten years ago.

The nose on this beer is awesome. Just like a fuzzed up peach. The rest of the experience is not so interesting. I am sure these beers have an appeal in the mass market, but I am looking for other things.

A-Hazy glowing tan color..some lacing on glass

S-fresh real peaches...not too sugary or sweet smelling...

T-I was worried this was going to be one of those artificial super sweet flavored wheats...it is not...peach is evident on the taste and somewhat prominantly but this also has a bit hop bite, a splash of alcohol and very light pucker on the finish...

M-Medium bodied...dry on the finish...6% a bit high for my liking for a fruit wheat beer....

O-Glad I tried it. Above average....not bad but nothing I will buy again....would be a better beer at a lower ABV in my opinion...

Pours a cloudy maize color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Good retention and slight lacing. Smells of amazingly fresh and strong peaches, yeast, and sweet malt. Fits the style of an American Pale Wheat Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp with a low carbonation level. There is a strong tartness/acidity associated with this brew. Tastes of peaches up front and throughout, tart malt, yeast, slight sweet malt, and very slight hop. Overall, the peaches taste really fresh and strong, but they are either overpowering the other beer flavors or this beer lacks complexity.

3.4/5  rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a weizen glass.

4.0 A: Hazy light orange color. Creamy base, frothy topped head has good retention and leaves lots of lacing.

4.0 S: Oh boy are the peaches forthright. The only issue is that it seems very artificial, like the peach ring gummy candy instead of real peaches. Still highly enjoyable (those gummies are awesome). Too a much less extent, there is the wheat base.

3.0 T: Nothing special here. The peach that was so apparent in the nose barely shows up in the taste. The wheat, however, comes through just fine. With some refinement, this could be a very good and unique beer, but right now it's just okay.

3.5 M: Medium body. The body's a bit thicker than the style would like and the carbonation is a bit low.

3.5 D: I imagine this would be good on a hot day, but some others would be better.
