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.

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.

Actually cracked my first ever bottle of this one tonight. I had been wanting to try it before, but this was the first time. Served cold and poured into a pint glass, this one was consumed on 10/20/2009.

The pour was nice hazy light amber in color with a smooth overall look to it. Nice cloudiness to it and a nice head of white creeping up and over the top of the glass. Aroma is tight, loads of peach and spices coming through. Hints of cinnamon and nutmeg and loads of fresh peach notes. Nice crisp, clean flavor here. Fresh off the tree peach flavor, really very well done and I am officially impressed here. Crisp, fresh fruit, light notes of spice and a healthy dose of light grain notes. Soo friggin drinkable, wow. I really cannot say it enough, I am impressed.

Perhaps my favoite beer of theirs I have ever had. This was just sublime at times. A great, great beer.

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.

I don't typically enjoy wheat beers. I usually don't even think to order them because I don't even feel like I can judge them fairly, but while visiting this brewery in SC I decided to try it.

I'm sure this beer changes from year to year because it is a seasonal. It pours very cloudy and orange. It has a very nice head though and smells sweet and peachy. I'm guessing they use frozen peaches because fresh would probably add a very inconsistant flavoring depending on the crop.

I can definitely taste the higher abv in this beer. It has a somewhat bitter finish, but think it's a great wheat 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.

Poured a honey gold color with a dense creamy snow white head that was genarous with lace.

Peachy malty goodness from THE PEACH STATE of South Carolina.

Very smooth peachy malty goodness again, well done.

creamy and easy drinking summer beer, for us in SC that summer is around 7 or 8 months.

I will say that this is outstanding for the style, a real lady pleaser to boot.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a shaker pint.

A--Bright, bright apricot orange, with all sorts of sediment floating around in it. I mean, it seriously looks smoothie-like in there. Seeds, yeast--is that pulp? I'm kidding, but this is cloudy and there's definitely crap floating around. Not bad, just...different. Head is a generous two fingers of creme colored dense foam. Good retention and lacing.

S--Smells like peaches. Bright, fresh, juicy peaches. Incredible donkey punch of fruit here. Gawd almighty do I hope this doesn't taste as sweet as it smells.

T--And we're safe. Phew. This actually tastes quite good. Flavor profile is more bright peach, but much mellower, with the essence of the flavor rather than any residual sweetness taking over. Thank the sting of the wheat for that. Great interplay between the fruit and tangy wheat going on here. It's a fairly straightforward profile, but that's true to the style, and the season for which it's brewed. The ingenuity comes in with the fruit used.

M&D--Typical hefe or wit mouthfeel--thin and spritzy. Easy going. Insanely drinkable. And this is coming from a guy whose closest tolerance for fruit beers was pumpkin ale. Fruit beers generally piss me off. This one is tasty. Strong summer refresher in the wheat beer category. Kind of like an American Wit.

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.

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.

Had this at Fall for Greenville (Think a "Taste of ..." event).

A: hazy bronze with some head. Not a great pour from a festival worker.

S: Peaches, apricots and other fall time fruit

T: Tastes like most other wheat's until you get to the peachy afterglow. It's surprisingly refreshing on a hot festival day.

M: Light feel, but perhaps a tad too much carbonation.

Overall: I was so impressed, I had a second. Very drinkable. Not sure I would want more than 1 or 2 in a sitting, but it was a nice "walking around" beer at the Fall For Greenville "festival".

Appearance: hazy well....peach juice color. Fairly thick white head.
Smell: strong, nice peach, not overpowering peach. Mostly dry. Crisp and floral.
Taste: clean peach. Crisp and balanced. A bit of sweetness but mostly dry.
Overall: you get what's advertised. Very nicely done, peach wheat. Refreshing, clean and I dig it.

A: cloudy honey gold color with a peach like fuzzy look to it. The beer captures a decent head that really sticks to the glass and helps release the aroma.
S: Smells like peach tea, very natural and sweet with some notes of malt and fresh fruit.
T: Tastes like a fuzzy peach tea. The beer really has a good balance of sweetness while maintaining the bitter characteristics of a beer. Very vegetale.
D/O: Slightly heavy for a summer beer but very drinkable This manages to balance the beer/fruit thing very well while not turning into a flavored malt beverage. Very enjoyable beer for summer.

Poured into a pilsner glass.

A - Hazy golden orange with what appears to be bits of sediment floating in it. Unfiltered? I hope so. Minimal head, some spotted lacing.

S - Delicious aroma of fresh peaches. I can't stress enough how fresh this smelled.

T - Base flavor is that of a pale wheat, something close to Widmer Hefeweizen, yet with a flavor of fresh peaches that is quite tasty, but doesn't distract from the brew itself. Nicely done.

M - Medium bodied, somewhat cloying after a while. Carbonation is spot on though.

D - Very tasty and well balanced. Might get a bit too sweet after a while, but I still think this is very impressive for a fruit beer.

Served this beer on tap, in a pint glass. Poured a cloudy, golden color, produced a nice white head, great retention and left ample amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of malted wheat, and Peaches! Medium bodied, the base of this American Wheat Ale consisted of soft malted wheat, clover honey, and fresh Peaches. Sweet and semi tart, there is not any noticeable hop flavor. The Peach aroma is stronger then the taste- it actually is a very nice balance of peach and malted wheat. There is a fine line when adding fruit to a Wheat Ale and RJ Rockers did a good job of not crossing it with this ale.
