At the Tap House in Greenville SC. Not always a fruit beer fan, but this one was good. Says something (good? bad?) when my non-beer drinking companions liked the smell. It smells like peaches, first and foremost. And that's great. But after awhile, when what you really want is a good beer, I found the taste (and sweetness) a bit cloying. Again, not my style but definitely I'd try again and use to coax non-beer folks to try. A great introductory beverage to craft beer IMHO.

On tap:
Pours a nice golden, with a response ve but hidden head. Lacing is fleeting.

Nose has a peach note, nicely, but it's sitting on a sweet cardboard - like stale sweetened cereal.

Taste follows, but not as sweet initially. It builds up. A clay-like earthy note presents a little more than cardboard. The peach fights with a little tartness, but resigns itself to the aftertaste (along with a surprising light mint or pine note).

Feel was ok, but this was just not a beer for me. I can drink one, but getting through two would be a bit of a chore.

Poured from a bottle into a glass.

Cloudy golden amber. Nearly headless. Smelled some wheat funk at first, but then the peach took over. Very peachy and sweet swelling. Peach definitely dominated the taste, but it was a real and pleasant peach taste, not a fake or candy peach taste. Some wheat twang at the finish. Enjoyable for a fruit beer.

Pours cloudy, like most wheat ales, to a handsome golden color. Head is minimal. Aroma of peaches is slight, but pleasant. The taste of fresh peaches is unmistakable and pleasant, even for this guy who typically doesn't enjoy fruit in his brew. This is a nice change from the ordinary.

look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy Amber with a thick white head.

Smell: Strong peach and citrus.

Mouthfeel/ Taste: Very smooth light to medium bodied. Taste of bitter hops and sweeter peach notes.

Overall: I will say, I initially thought this beer was going to be awful, the smell reminded me of vomit, but the taste is pretty damn good. I guess I would have this one again.

Good looking hazy brew. Scent of slight peaches with a sweet edge, I can't detect anything else. Flavor of peach and slight malt on the follow through but not overbearing and slightly sweet. Decently carbonated and crisp. Decent.

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.
