Served on draft at Laura Alberts in Daniel Island (Charleston), SC.

Goes into the glass from the tap a cloudy, dark pach color. Small head that diminishes to a ring around the collar.

Aroma is peachy for sure. Smells a lot like triple sec liquor.

Flavor is a bit odd. It tastes like a float made with vanilla ice cream and peach shnapps. The peach flavor seem artificial and is quite strong.

Creamy mouthfeel with lower carbonation for the style. I could handle mybe two of these but the sweet peach flavor would get old in a hurry.

This brew was served from the tap at The Ginger Man in Greenwich, CT. It arrived in a flared pint glass, glowing a sunburst orange, with darkened hues at the bottom of the glass. The head was one finger tall and creamy white, showing good retention. Thick, wet sheets of lacing stuck around the glass. There was a very thick haze throughout, with a film of sediment along the bottom, and carbonation appeared medium. The aroma was a fistful of peach!! This showed sweet sugariness, but also an uncanny freshness. With warmth this peach air became more similar to those syrupy canned peaches. The grain was wheaty, wet, and dirty with minerals. A final note of sweet buttercream topped the nose off. Our first impression was that the beer was more bitter than expected, but with all the peachy goodness we had hoped for. The flavor opened up with sweet, fresh peach, as in the nose, along with barley, wheat, and slightly adjuncty metallics. The middle peaked with syrupy candied peaches, mixing with bitter wheat, souring grain, and faint lactics. The end showcased more of that bitter wheat, with stone, sour lactics, grassy hops bitterness, and dirty earthiness. The aftertaste breathed of big wheat, more sour grain mash, and more of that faint bitter and grassy hop. The body was medium, and the carbonation was high, prickling the palate. A wet coating was left around the mouth, with no real drying quality. There was cooling sip, and mice frothy slurp and smack, and a pleasantly fresh creaminess. The abv was appropriate, and the beer was easy drinking.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this brew was how authentic and robust the peach aroma and flavoring was. At no point did it feel synthetic or overdone. The nose sung of summer peaches and cream, while the taste followed through nicely with nice even sweetness, and a bitter finish at the way end. We wish that the sweetness had remained just a bit longer, to help better balance the sourness and bitterness of the final flavors. This is a highly refreshing beer, but due to the glorious peach insanity, this guy will remain for special occasions.

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.

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.

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

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

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a very hazy dark orange with some chunks floating around. Half finger head that quickly disappears.

The smell is actually pretty nice. Tons of peach with some bubblegum and banana.

Everything seems to go wrong on the taste. Some artificial tasting peach at first quickly followed by bubble gum and an band aid flavor. Wonder if this is infected? A mild hop bitterness cleans the palate on the finish.

Overall, I wasn't impressed. The odd medicinal flavor through me off. But even that aside, nothing seemed to meld together and the flavors were all over the place. Not a good effort.
