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.

BOD 4/3/15. Pours a cloudy light medium amber with heavy particulate suspension. Virtually no head, lacing or retention. The worst head characteristics I've ever seen.

Nice nose of canned peaches over a touch of biscuit. No hop character whatsoever.

Light body with a texture slightly thicker than water. Below normal carbonation with light effervescence in the finish.

The flavor profile is weak in intensity, almost one dimensional but well balanced. It begins with weak canned peaches. The middle is where canned peaches are most intense over a mild bitterness that is accompanied with a balancing biscuit sweetness against a subtle wheat character. The finish is a slow fade of slightly bitter canned peaches.

Nice-looking beer.
Aroma a little lacking.
Taste a lot lacking. Peaches way too subtle for me.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Smells like artificial peaches.
Appearance- The best part of this beer. A nice murky amber colored beer with a small white head.
Taste- Absolutely terrible, it was such a train-wreck of faux peaches and wheat that I couldn't even drink this. I have finished off some amazingly bad beers in the past.
Palate- hmmm, YUCK
Overall- Terrible beer, I have had several other RJ Rocker beers and they were decent, this one is abysmal.
