look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

L : Pours apricot colored with a tall, foamy head. Hills of lace left behind. 90% opaque.

S : Like a wooden crate of peaches left in the sun. Some tobacco. Peach martini. Wheat.

T : Starts off a little aggressive, with some hop and pale malt coming first, but it tames down. Some peach candy rings and peach juice finish off the profile with hints of wheat here and there. Slight banana.

F : Feel is weird. Not exactly quenching, not exactly dry. It's got this awkward in-the-middle profile like licking peach fuzz.

O : I mean it's really not a bad beer, in fact it's pretty darn tasty. There's some odd qualities to it, but it somehow comes together. Not sure if I'd buy it again, but I'd sure drink it if it were hanging around on tap or at a party.

Hazy, almost orange in color with a near-non-existent head. The aroma is of peach, with a light background of wheat. Light, fizzy, balanced with sweetness and slight tartness. This is closer to a soda-pop than to a beer. Well made, but uninspiring.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Look: Like the fuzz on a ripe peach, yellow with a bit of orange. Hazy and decently carbonated.
Smell: Smells like a normal wheat beer, with faint peach hiding underneath.
Taste: Tastes like a pretty solid wheat beer. Peach notes hide under the smooth flavor, and you need to finish half of it to know that it's peach flavored instead of just a normal wheat beer. Not as peachy as hoped.
Feel: Light to medium, very smooth, pretty good.
Overall: Beer is a wheat peach beer that leans more on the wheat side. If you really want peach, try a peach lambic. That said, it's a pretty refreshing brew.

Pours a clear straw color with a white quickly dissipating head. There is definitely some peach in the aroma. The taste is more muted than the aroma. I'm not a fan of overly fruity beers, but this seems to be lacking the peach/wheat blend. Feels a bit thin but well carbonated. Not my favorite but not bad.

Not a fan of fruit flavored beers but I generally enjoy peach flavored candies and whatnots.

This one is entirely too sweet for me. I was hoping for a hint of peach but it overwhelmed it for me.

The color was what I expected for a peach wheat beer. The smell was about the same.

If you like fruit flavored beer, you'll enjoy it. Probably more of a summer beer.

This is an excellent beer!! Unless you don't care for the taste of peaches. It's not overly peachy though, in my opinion. This is definitely a favorite beer of mine!

The peach accent to this beer turned out to be more a front and center player rather than taking the more subtle supporting role for which I had hoped.

Poured from can into Pint glass

A - Rich, frothy white head that dissipates somewhat quickly. Clear gold in color with a slight amber tint. Head, once dissipated, leaves a creamy film on the top of the beer. 3.75/5

S - Heavy peach aroma with notes of lemon and apricot. Somewhat of a peppery spiciness in the aroma as well. There is a slight graininess and yeastiness to the aroma, but as a sub note. Very medicinal aroma. 3/5

T - Very heavy on the peach flavor with a bit of lemon and apricot, just like the smell. I am also getting a bit of the base malt and a yeasty note as well. 3.25/5

M - Light bodied but not extremely dry. Finishes lightly but leaves a lingering feeling on the back of the tongue. 3.5/5

O - Not a beer that I will buy again (this one was my wife's idea and she found out that she does not like it). It's just an odd combination of fruit and beer. Other fruit beers I can handle nicely but peach just doesn't lend itself to my palate very well. Attempted to review to style as best as possible. I like the appearance, but just not necessarily the aroma or the taste. 3.25/5

This is a great, refreshing summertime brew. I thought it was going to be too overpowering of peach and too sweet, but it wasn't. Tastes like a nice light wheat beer, with a prominent peach flavor. Doesn't overpower the wheat beer underneath though and keeps it from being sticky or sweet.

Would Drink Again: Yes
Would Purchase Again: Yes

Pouring from 12oz. bottle into sensory glass. A light, golden yellow in appearance with a quickly disappearing head,

Heavy notes of ripe peaches on the nose, some lemon and wheat being picked up as well.

Tastes as it smells, very smooth on the tongue, alcohol hidden well within. While the peach flavor is very much pronounced, it is not artificial or too overpowering to make you forget this is a beer.

A nice example of a fruit beer, an excellent choice for warm weather.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Appearance (3.50) : Medium carbonation, very flat golden brown body with a very healthy head. A little lackluster, still very decent though.

Smell (3.75) : A very light yeast flavor, very malty with a hint of peaches - nice.

Taste (4.25) : The peach mixed with undertones of wheat really tasted quite good. Not an overly complex flavor, but that's not a bad thing in this instance. Very smooth and not overly sweet.

Mouthfeel (3.00) : Very low carbonation shines through, After taste is extremely wheaty and not as peachy. Seemed a little flat, however, not awful.

Overall (3.75) : Very nice, not too heavy. A very drinkable summer beer.

Sampled last night on 5/20/14 but had this once before about 2 years ago. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a pilsner flute glass.

Pours a hazy golden amber in color with a thin white head. Some spotty lacing was seen. Lots of streaming bubbles is seen rising from the bottom of the glass, perfect carbonation actually. The aroma is very pleasant and the peaches comes through very nicely but isn't overdone along with the wheat. The taste is the same and is a perfect mix of flavors and once again, is isn't overdone. Crisp and smooth and so easy to drink. A great brew for the warmer months or actually anytime.

12 fl oz. can, with no apparent canned on date present. My third beer from O'Fallon Brewery, acquired as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's. It's been a long time since I've had a beer from these guys, so I'm not quite sure what to expect. The premise sounds nice, though.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a light bright golden yellow-orange colored body with lots of bubbles rushing topside and some fine sediment in the glass. Just over a finger of sudsy white head than thins to a ring. Looks very nice.

S - The peaches come through nicely on the aroma. Fruity dried peaches / apricot, creaminess, white grapes, and grassy / herbal wheat presence. Lightly fumey at times, but it's a nice aroma.

T - Taste follows the nose - fruity peach / apricot, and dry grainy malted wheat presence. A simple, yet tasty beverage. Reminds me a lot of how Magic Hat #9 tastes.

M - Feel is crisp, smooth, and creamy. Light-bodied, easy drinking, and with good carbonation.

Overall, a very nicely done peach wheat beer. Perfectly balanced, and super sessionable for a hot summer day. I will definitely be looking forward to more of these.

O'Fallon Brewery Wheach ---4/5.

I like the cloudy yellow hue as it rises up to a creamy foamy cap. The nose held light peach and wheat, as it should. The flavors were muted with a sweet candy peach and even some wheat malt but it's too subdued. The feel is like velvet with an intense smoothness. Overall I'd recommend it for a try and certainly for those who enjoy the fruit beer style.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/26/2013. Pours very hazy golden amber color with a 2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big ripe peach, lemon zest, pear, apricot, wheat, floral, grass, bread, light honey, and light yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of fruit and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of ripe peach, lemon zest, pear, apple, wheat, floral, grass, light pepper, bread, light honey, and floral earthiness. Lingering notes of peach, light fruits, wheat, floral, grass, light pepper, bread, and light honey on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance of peach, malt, and lightly spicy yeast flavors; with solid robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a slightly creamy and very crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good fruited wheat beer. Good balance of fruit and malt flavors with solid robustness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

I don't know what you would like me to say about this beer..."please hold my purse whilst I pee"??? The beer is ok...it has peach aroma and accents. The Wheach poured a yellow clear with thin white head that is to sweet to lace. The scent is has subtle backdrop of peach. The taste weak peach with a wheat beer base. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a good lawn mower beer and capable of competing with the Leinekugles beery Weiss beers.

Bottle > Pint Jar

A - Pours a light hazy straw color, thin fizzy one finger head, no lacing.
S - Wheat, sparkling apple juice kinda smell, sour candy, baking flour, dried flowers.
T - Peachy, but not too much, nor too sweet, goes with the moderate wheat flavor well.
M - Light, a tad sweet, but refreshing.
O - For what it is, its a good summer beer, nice balance of fruit.

Hazy gold with a narrow band of white head. Lots of carbonation is bubbling from bottom to top.

Peachy, with very subtle hints of what might be a wheat beer, but mostly peachy - sweet, fruity, clean, a little fleshy.

Refreshing in the heat of the summer, as it's not overly sweet on the tongue. Peachy, with a very subtle bit of malt to support the fruitiness.

Crisp, easy to drink, light carbonation.

Though I'm not much for fruit-focused beers, this one is enjoyable in the right setting - ballpark, pre-mowing, in-mowing, post-mowing, etc.

A-A dark golden color with a bit of haze. Thin head which dissolved into a nice lacing that stayed for quite some time.

S-Super peachy smell. Usually I can't smell the more intricate parts of a beer. However, the peach needed no super sniffer. It was right there and up front. A hint of wheaty aroma appeared as it warmed up, but the peach was the head honcho.

T-It was quite well-balanced. The peach did not over power the grains nor vice versa. They complimented each other well throughout the entire night as I took my time with the beer. The finish was a poppy bitterness that cut off the sweetness of the peach. There was a bit of a dirty aftertaste as it warmed up but I suspect that was the tap lines (not the best bar).

M-watery, thin. definitely the downfall of the beer.

O-I would suggest this as a session beer, but I know I held onto it for a long time because I was enjoying so much. Worth a try to the beer connoisseur to one new to the beer scene. A beer to bring palates of all different walks of beer.

A - Pours a slightly hazy straw color with a one finger pure white head. Very nice looking beer

S - Smells like a peach! Not much else there

T - Definately lots of peach upfront, but nearly as strong as the aroma. It has very nice malts in the background that complement the peach flavor quite nicely

M - A very smooth drinking beer with medium body and nice carbonation

O - A very enjoyable fruit beer. The aroma had me a little scared because of its strength. The beer ended up having a pleasant peach taste with a nice malty background. This is not something I would want to drink several of, but could see myself keeping it around the house for something different every once in awhile

Poured into a fluted pilsner glass.

The beer is a hazy golden yellow. A tight white head slowly recedes and good foamy lacing remains on the glass.

The aroma is straight-forward wheat, malt, and massive peach.

Taste is dominated by sweet peaches. The finish has more "beer flavor" such as malts, yeast, and maybe a hint of hops.

The mouthfeel is light.

Overall, just too much peach for my taste, but it is what it says it is. One is enough. Tastes like peach jolly rancher candy.

A: hazy straw w. fluffy one finger white head.
S: sweet peach; wine-like, w. a bit of sweet, funky fermentation smell.
T: peach. sweet, crisp.
M: crisp, medium carbonation.
O: i remember this beer being better, a lot better, but it was summer & we were on vacation. we picked up this recent six pack while doing the KY bourbon trail & i was excited to see it available in January. this particular batch may be off. i would pick this up again, but i think this is a beer best enjoyed in the heat of the summer & it's winter and cold.

Reviewed from notes.

Pours out lightly clouded straw with three fingers of fluffy foam that gradually subsides over three minutes, leaving behind some streaky lace patterns. Light body and spritzy, crisp carbonation that cuts well through the sweet fruit profile within.

Very strong sugary peach preserves aroma, I can hardly smell the malt at all, but it is there in the background. Semi-dry wheat and peachy blend in flavor works well as a blend, but there is a rising oddball mustiness that comes on as I finish through the glass. I'd describe it as a sort of 'over-ripe and squishy peach' kind of mustiness. Not bad at all! I just wish I could make out some kind of hopping garnish or accent (Why couldn't there be floral or grassy hopping?) but maybe that's just the hop addict in me whining about a non-existent problem...

I got this as part of an M&M 6pk from Woodman’s in Sun Prairie, WI in summer 2012.

Pours a clear, golden amber color with a slight head. The aroma is very strong with peaches and more peaches. The taste is smooth and light. The wheat mixes very nicely with peach flavor to create an overall refreshing taste that is quite sweet. Finishes with a sweet peach after taste. Perhaps a bit of a girly beer, but it does make for a great summer beer.

I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Hazy golden color with a half a fingers worth of white head. Fair amount of lacing.

Smell- Peach with a hint of grass and wheat.

Taste- Sweet peach at the start with a mellow wheat malt finish.

Mouthfeel- Light to medium bodied and well carbonated. Crisp.

Overall- A nice change of pace. I wouldn't drink this all the time but I could see myself enjoying this every once in a while this summer.
