Pint on-tap at Reiley's pub & grill (amazing food, by the way).

Great looking pour--brassy blonde body with a well retained tuft of bleached white suds. Clear, with a healthy carbonation level. Aroma is exactly what the beer advertises: peachy. Big, fruity peach notes atop a solid wheat base. Smells like real fruit, too, not that extract crap, which figures for a beer made in Peach Country.

Flavor is sweet and fruity up front with fresh peach notes leading the way, but it fades too quickly into a halfway-decent wheat ale with a slight tinge of hoppiness and mineral water. Mouthfeel is crisp and well carbonated with a light body. Easy drinking fruit beer, this. Give 'Son of a Peach' a try if you happen to cross paths.

The beer pours a hazy yellow-orange with a giant foamy head that takes several minutes to settle. There was great lacing and retention before settling. There is heavy sediment and cloudiness. The nose is sweet with a huge amount of peach fruitiness. The taste doesn't follow the beer's nose with a slight amount of peach and a big amount of wheat and yeast. The mouthfeel is as expected, not too thick/thin, but there is an odd aftertaste that deviates from my expectations. I would probably drink this beer again, but I'd opt for an Ithaca apricot wheat instead.

R.J. Rocker Son of a Peach has a very thick, off-white head, a semi-clear, deep golden (peachy, even) appearance, with lots of intense bubble streams and roiling brown chunks. Thick lacing is left behind. The aroma is of peaches and a hint of bread. Taste is of peaches, sugar, syrup, bread, and a touch of bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and R.J. Rocker Son of a Peach finishes dry, refreshing, sweet, and easy going. Overall, this is one of the better fruit beers I have had.

A - Hazy honey colored, light cream head.

S - Candied peaches mostly. Pretty overwhelming, maybe light hints of a typical wheat beer.

T - Sulfury peach flavored Flintstone's vitamins. Medicinal and fake peach flavor. I'm really stressing to find something good to say about the flavor. But it escapes me.

M - Other than the lingering sulfuric finish, the body is appropriately light and well carbonated

A - A fingers worth of slightly fizzy white head that is sa bit creamy and mixed with big chunky bubbles... Moderate retention gives way to a splotchy lace with a collar around the glass... A deeply hazed murky light auburn color... Trace carbonation rises throughout...

S - A terrific mixture of fresh and canned peaches... Apricot... Honeydew... Some very light candied sugars... Fresh baked donuts... Hints of wheat... A tad bit on the musky side... Seems odd, but I'm picking up minor notes of coffee and vanilla...

T - A mix of unripe peach and canned peaches... Grass and wheat notes... Slightly medicinal... Notes of vanilla... Shortbread...

M - Medium bodied... Slightly fizzy... Oddly astringent... A bit chalky... A bit of a dry finish... A slightly pasty coating lingers in the mouth...

D - This one starts out strong in terms of appearance and smell, but quickly goes down hill thereafter... This one seems a bit forced and I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to drink this again in the future...

On tap at TJ's, 4/2/11.

A-A clear orange amber with a thin white head and no lacing.

S-Sweet peaches, a bit of sweet syrup and fruit jiuce and some very subdued wheat.

T-Slightly dry maltiness with some good sweet peach flavor. Easy to drink, rather light.

O-As fruit beers go, this one is pretty nice. Pleasant in a lawnmowery sort of way.
