Another bottle from and another nod to: JohnQVegas. Thanks Dustin-- you have been an excellent off-season pickup and I'm glad to have added you to my trading team.
This pours.... oddly enough, kind of peach colored. Nearly white head is thin with really fine bubbles and a sparkley lacing. Some sediment on the bottom-- little dark dots, like ground up vanilla beans.
The first sip is very unsettling. It made me not want to take another. Once I got past that first sip though, I wam surprised how easy drinking this it.
Smells of peaches and apricots... actually reminds me of Jolly Rancher candies. After a few more sips, all I smell are those gummy peaches-- Peachy-Os I think they are called. This smells AMAZING now that it opened up a little. Wow. I'm loving that smell--- too bad this is categorized a pale wheat instead of a fruit beer.
I didn't really like this at first, but it has grown on me. The feel is certainly decent. I'm not the biggest fan of peach flavor, but this isn't too bad. This is really easy drinking despite the giant sweetness that creeps up on me. I do wish this had a little tartness to it to cut through the sweet, but alas... I guess I just need to buy some more Festina Peche.

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.

A: Bright orange pour with very little white head as well as little lacing. Definitely unfiltered ... which I liked. You can see lots of little floaties.
S: Didn't get a ton peach right up front which I was surprised to find. I think if I had let it warm just a tad I probably would have gotten a bit more peach scent.
T: This is where the peach shines through. From the second it touched my tongue until it went down the pipe I got smacked in the face with peaches.
D: I really enjoy this beer in the midst of a blazing summer day. It's refreshing and very tasty.

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.
