12 ounce bottle - $2.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Bottled on: 05/29/2014

Appearance: Pours an amber-golden body strewn with some fine particulates and capped with nearly an inch of off-white foam.

Smell: Displays a bready, moderately sweet-scented aroma drenched in nostril prickling alcohol, giving an ill sign of things to come.

Taste: Bready, honey-glazed maltiness with a full-on fruity dose of peach puree, a couple drops of vanilla, and a big pop of low-grade schnapps which easily borders on a stinging, medicinal quality which mercifully drags out into the aftertaste and settles into a belly-warming tincture.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Minor stickiness present.

Overall: With a sneer, R.J. Rockers asked of Son of a Peach, "who's your daddy?" Apparently, it's this boozy deadbeat asshole.

poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

The beer pours a hazy amber/orange color with little to no head. What little head that there is dissipated quickly leaving behind no lacing at all.

The beer smells mainly of peach preserves, but there is a definite bready/malty undertone and is capped with a slight booziness

The flavor is sweet and sticky, comprised mainly of peach jam/preserves with a sweet malty backbone and a definite boozy finish. Not bad but not as good as Son of a Peach

Overall, this is not a bad beer, but it is not something that I would seek out again. This beers smaller version "Son of a Peach" is good, even if a little one dimensional, but this bigger version seems to have muddied the waters in their effort to create a more complex beer.

After trying several RJ brews and being only slightly satisfied, I thought I would try another. This one has a horrible smell but the taste has some potential. It has a slight taste of a creamsicle, unfortunately it seems to be watered down, sad !
