Notes: Imagine our smooth, clean wheat beer with a touch of peach and you get the idea behind O'Fallon Wheach, our peach wheat beer. Light, refreshing and crisp, it's perfect for any occasion!

2.95/5  rDev -17.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Very hazy yellow with a small head. A bit of a strange color for a wheat, but nice enough.

The nose dominated by peaches. Actual, juicy, ripe peaches, too, not something synthetic like peach schnaaps.

Tastes like sweet wheat upfront, very nice juicy peaches in the middle, ripe and slightly tart, but it ends badly on a note of macro adjunct grain. Where the hell does that come from? This would be a pretty darn good fruit beer if not for the crappy finish.

This is my second O'Fallon, and I have the same complaint with this beer as I do with their gold. The ending sucks.

This is another interesting beer I received in a trade from Karst.

I am not a big fan of fruit or wheat beers; BUT when it is 95 deg. outside, and these beers are cold, they are very refreshing.

The flavor was Peach, peach, peach. Sweet & crisp; and I could not detect any hop aftertaste; with the peach flavor overwhelming any wheat or malt flavors.

The color was yeallow hazy 'wheatbeer'; and the mouthfeel was light.
For a summer refresher, I do not think you want thick or alcoholic.

I did not get to try the second bottle, my wife grabbed it and said 'Yummy !'

look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a cloudy yellow color with a fizzy head that dies very quickly even with a strong pour. No lacing to speak of.

Smell & Taste: "Wheach" describes both the taste and smell pretty well by itself. It's a peach wheat beer, and it tastes like you'd expect a combination of the two to taste. I like peach flavor in general but am not a huge fan of fruit beers, so this was an interesting beer to try for the first time. The taste is pretty plain and not very complex, but similar to what you'd expect from a summer wheat beer.

Mouthfeel: Moderate-to-light mouthfeel, and rather chalky. Fairly refreshing, though.

Drinkability: Good and unique summer offering. It's 93 degrees here in Iowa today, and humid as hell, so it was a nice one to try. Slides down the hatch well..you could drink a lot of these on a warm day, and I just might.

I had to grab this bottle with the happy fruit on the label. It pours a very light hazy yellow color with a small head that falls to a light coating over top of the brew. The nose is very peachy, almost artificial, with a wheaty background. I like it. The flavor is just okay. The flavor is not as intense as the nose, but there is definately a nice sweet peachyness playing pretty well with a standard american wheat. Not bad. The feel is moderate with a moderate carbonation. As far as a peach beer goes, this is a gem in my book. I made one last summer and this is definately better than mine. I would drink this by the case in the summer as a quencher.

Pours a hazy yellow color with a small head that falls fast and leaves a little lacing on the glass. Extremely odd aroma. It actually has a lot of sweet peach aroma. Actual fresh peaches, not some fake extract smell. Not much wheat aroma there, as the peach sort of blocks out all else. Very odd flavor. The peach flavors are somewhat present in the initial flavor, but much more prominent a couple seconds after the swallow. Not much wheat character at all. This is a darn good fruit beer. I've recently been disappointed with O'Fallon's fruit beers (Blackbeery Scotch, eh and the Cherry Chocolate - obvious use of extracts), but this one does a nice job. Tastes like fresh peaches without any large sourness. Nice job on this one. Body is moderate and the drinkability is pretty good, assuming you like peaches :-)

Pours out crystal clear pale straw and sits a sickly, light golden-straw color in the glass with a decent white head, fading to glassy surface, holding to the edges and leaving some small lacings.

Smells intensely of raw peaches and a mix of dried apricots. Chalky yeast background and a faint touch of grassy hops.

Tastes lightly sweet up front and produces a cloying blanket of boiled fruit flavors that form a haze over the entier beer. Peachiness is questionable, as are most other flavors produced. Along the lines of apricot skins and melon rinds. Fainly yeasty, and finishes fairly dry, a bit of alcoholic warmth.

Crisp in the mouth, but fairly chalky. Medium-light in body. Just stop for a minute and wonder why you picked one up. If I could just smell this beer, it would be okay, but the flavor is not even close. Fruit-wheat blends: 0. Scorched taste buds: 1.
