Son Of A Peach | RJ Rockers Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this beer's head is three fingers thick ,with solid lacing, and hazed medium gold body.


I smell mellow/tame wheat ale elements with really just a faint note of peach.

Ok, the peach is certainly here in the taste, doing a great job complementing the traditional wheat brew components. Outrageously refreshing.

Medium mouthfeel with fair carbonation.

Son Of A Peach | RJ Rockers Brewing Company has merited a 4.5 rating IMO. Another gifted bottle from my good friend "irl", @nicholas2121

Son Of A Peach brewed by RJ Rockers Brewing Company, with an ABV of 6.00% This brew pours out a nice cloudy amber color with a mid sized white head. There is also a decent amount of lacing to this. It sticks real nice to the side of the glass. The smell of this brew rich with peach sweetness, grains and malts. You also pick up on a sight tartness in the smell. Between the look and smell this is one inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is rich with flavors. You first up the smoothness of wheat grains and a nice amount of malts. Then a nice mild peach flavor that ties everything together. There is a lot going on in this brew, there is nothing overpowering about about. Son Of A Peach is a real nice example of a fruit brew. It is really hard to pick up the 6.00% ABV in this brew, it just goes down that smooth. The mouth feel of Son Of A Peach is , Peachy, Bold, Smooth, Clean and Refreshing. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4.25 out of 5. I would highly recommend you looking this brew up. RJ Rockers Brewing Company, did a real nice job with this one.

The peach flavor is very strong, and right up front. It's a lot like eating peaches that are contained in a cup of syrup, but there's a bitterness at the end that kind of reins it in. It's a surprise, and it helps make the beer more rounded.

Cloudy, hazy orange on the pour. The smell is citrusy, peach candy ish and wheat. A nice amount of carbonation on the pour and on the mouth feel. A little dry on the finish and a nice taste of peach through out. Not too over powering to say the least. A very refreshing warm weather beer. A bit more heavy than most wheat , but not by too much. I enjoyed this beer. I would love to taste this on tap.

Received as an extra in a trade. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured a nice slightly hazy dark golden orange hue with a big two finger head that fades slowly to leave a nice creamy blanket.

S - Aromas of big peach notes, though more peach gummy candy than fresh peaches. No real 'stone pit' notes, mostly just potent peach flesh, almost some light vanilla. The wheat is somewhat aromatic, definitely a 'creamy wheat' type aroma.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, the peach is lightly sweet without nearly as much of a pop as the nose had. Loads of wheat along with a creamy wheat finish. The peach is by no means in the forefront, however, it does make it's presence known with subtle flavour. The wheat and peach create a light vanilla cream flavour.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, body is a little on the heavy side.

O - Overall this was a rather solid wheat ale. The peach is very nice on the nose, wish it was a little more up front on the taste. Either way, this was a solid beer that would be great come summer time.

Single, twelve-ounce bottle. Aroma is faint peach with hints of citrus zest. Similar flavor with a flaky mouthfeel. Overall, quite drinkable, and especially thirst quenching, but flavor profile is substantially weakened by a lack of backbone.

Look: It pours cloudy orange with a white head.

Smell: It has aromas of peach and wheat.

Taste: It has flavors of peach, some orange, vanilla, and wheat.

Feel: It has a moderate feel with a dry moderately bitter finish that has a bit of astringent bite.

Overall, it is fruity but the finish throws it off.

Orangish apricot-colored beer, quite hazy, with a fairly generous white head that left some lacing on the glass. Nose dominated by fresh peach smell over some fairly mild yeast. Taste a blend of yeast, mild hops, and peach. Pleasant enough. Mouthfeel clean, unexceptional. Fun beer if you like peaches and hazy wheat beers. Had this from a bottle on 18 July, and the label said that it had been bottled on "06 14 16." I doubt this is one you'd want to let age.

Little head and only a couple of minute spots for lace. The liquid is a cloudy orange. Lots of yeast chunks at the bottom of the glass.

Pleasant, fresh cut peach aroma.

Peach is upfront and center on this beer. It's sweet with a children's aspirin like flavor. The finish has some bitterness come out. Yet, the aftertaste is short. Elevated carbonation with a moderate body. It's more refreshing than most and the combination of flavors seem to work decently. Later in the taste, I get a touch of cream.

From the bottle, it pours a hazy, lightly orangey amber with a small head. Peach is definitely in the nose. The taste is a bit sharp with the "mean peach" coming through. Interesting.

A fruit flavored beer for the non fruit flavored beer fan. Small brewery in South Carolina this beer is made with local South Carolina peaches (South Carolina actually produces more peaches than Georgia). Wheat style beer with a slight peach aroma. Peach only comes through in the aftertaste. Very refreshing especially in warm weather. Well worth a try, started as a seasonal but due to its popularity it is now brewed year round.

12 oz bottle poured into a Savor snifter.

Pours a cloud orange color with a full finger of sticky foam that recedes slowly. Aroma is bangin' - a nice sweet peach smell that doesn't smell artificial. Flavor is quite sweet with a vanilla like sweetness as well as peach. Smells better than it tastes, unfortunately. I feel this is a little too heavy bodied - needs to be dried out a little more.

I really do enjoy the peach flavor a lot. Too much sweetness keeps it as a good, but not great beer.

New to fruit based beers, this one delivers what it says in its name, while not overwhelming me with sweet flavor or too much peach. Its flavor is right on and has become a staple. It doesn't hurt that I live 15 minutes from the brewery either.

L: Pours a hazy peach color producing a ½” off white foam cap that rapidly dissipates.

S: Has big peach aromas supported by light biscuit.

T: It’s peach pie in a glass and very well done. The peach flavors are lightly sweetened with light honey caramel over a trace of pie crust. The peach and malt flavors are moderately high, the hop flavors and bitterness are low but the results are well balanced with nothing cloying or overstated.

F: Medium to medium full body, medium carbonation.

O: RJ Rocker does a pretty good job puling this one off.

Had this on tap at Tupelo Honey in Myrtle Beach. Really good beer. Refreshing taste from this golden ale with the smell of peaches. I was most surprised at the peach taste as it wasn't overwhelming at all (like u may think). The peach compliments the beer perfectly. Would definitely purchase again.

This is a pretty tasty peach ale. it's not going to blow you away, but for those who like the taste of peach this is a solid choice. just wish it had a little more carbonation as it felt slightly flat to me.

This smelled amazing coming right out of the bottle. Tasted similar, that of a nice peach flavor with a decent amount of carbonation. Once you caught the after taste tho it was a little bland. Great up front but the back end lacked big time for me.

A: A hazy gold bordering on copper. Medium amount of head with little retention. Still, quite good.

S: The peach is strong, but not overbearing. Bready.

T: Peach, malts, biscuits, simple, yet effective.

M: It's a bit heavier than most other wheats, but I'm guessing this is due to the peach content.

A good beer. Won't be a regular for me, but glad I tried it.

Poured into a pint glass, dark golden color, not a ton of head even when trying. Definitely smell the fruit in the beer. Good mouth feel, crisp, fresh, mine were bottled less than 28 days ago as I drink this. Pairs well with our dinner, grilled burgers, as I imagine it would with almost anything with strong flavor. The peach taste is there but not crazy peachy, just enough to feel like I'm still drinking beer and not one of my wife's wine coolers. I love anything from the Carolinas. They're great water makes for great beers and this one is up there for summery, sweeter tasting stuff that I want to be able to drink a few of in one sitting. Great for family grill nights but I wouldn't serve it at my poker games.

I happened across this beer at a local craft beer and burger joint in Brentwood, TN. It was recommended by a fellow YELP'er and it did not disappoint. Appearance - medium golden with light foam. Smell - wonderful peachy aroma but not overpowering. Taste - absolutely delicious wheat ale, not overpowering sweetness you might expect from a peach ale. Feel - great! Not too light, nice and crisp. It is my humble opinion a nice cold draft I thoroughly enjoyed. I try to go back when in town to have another. Haven't found it anywhere else yet. Disappointed to read its only available in Spring and Summer.

I really like this beer. As a local to RJ's I have tried most of their beers and this is my second go-to if i want something with a little bit more flavors than the Brown-Eyed Squirrel. The peach is very present but it is not overpowering in the least. It has just enough hops ABV to keep it an enjoyable beer for BBQ's, get-togethers, etc. My favorite part of this is the aroma and after-taste. Drink from the bottle or in a glass. Either way you can't go wrong.

Smelled very peachy to me!! Full of initial flavor with light pleasant peach aftertaste. Decided to mix it with my favorite hefe and made a very nice fruity, but filling beer. Would definitely buy more

I like this flavor a lot and get a great scent from the beer. It could have a bit of different body to enhance flavor and more of a peach aftertaste. I would buy it again.

I graded this beer lower based off of that the label states it is an wheat ale, but nothing about this beer drinks like a wheat ale. It is light in the body, smells like artificial flavoring out that you get with soda pop, it has a thin mouth feel. The taste of the peaches though it is worth a try if you like peaches, but not worth trying if your looking for a good American wheat ale

Poured into snifter glass. This is a honey-colored beer, quite opaque with small bits of what appears to be pulp. There is minimal head and lacing. Quite fragrant with a strong aroma of peach. The taste is wheat forward with abundant peach sweetness but a surprisingly bitter finish. It has an almost champagne-like mouth feel. Overall, this is an interesting fruit beer. Other reviewers seem to either love or hate it but I don't have a strong feeling either way. While I'm glad I tried it and enjoyed it as a change of pace on a hot day, I won't go out of my way to seek it out.
