I like this beer; the peach flavor keeps it from being too hoppy. Not pretentious, just a good beer. And the 5.8% doesn't hurt either.

Excellent summer beer for a breakaway from the norm.

A: Ultra cloudy, honey-straw color. Looks like unfiltered apple cider from a roadside stand. A thin tan film of foam with no lacing.

A: PEACHES!

T&M: Light bodied. Peaches all the way. Some underlying wheat and malt. Very nice peach wheat ale. Fresh peaches undoubtedly.

I don't necesarily enjoy peaches, but this is not over the top or under the radar. It is what it is and an excellent recipe!

Finally able to try this one on tap and was very excited. I've reviewd a couple Rockers brews before, and since they are my local beer I may be a little biased, but this one was really unique. It has a cloudy color, obviously unfiltered; I'd compare its appearance to an apple cider (which was cool). Aroma is full of peaches. I've tried a lot of fruit beers (namely blueberry ales) that smell "fake", but this aroma seems really authentic. Taste has a little peach to it, but not as much as you would expect going off the aroma. Just a little bit alcohol as well which I didn't expect. I'm told the abv is 5.8%. Overall a very refreshing, interesting beer and one that I plan on drinking by the 6 pack over the summer. Can't wait for its release in bottles.

One of the pleasant surprises of my first trip to the Myrtle, SC area. The basket of peaches we picked up at the flea market was good too!

Appearance - a very cloudy, dare I say 'fuzzy' pour. Peachy color for sure, a finger of flat-white foam.

Aroma - pure peach. Intense, fruity and fresh. Good stuff.

Taste - a fair but negligible base malt, some grainy sweetness. Nearly no identity to it though, as the sweet peach flavor is fairly immediate and dominating. The peach flavor is on the sweeter side but with lots of supporting fruitiness. A nice bit of hop balance on the swallow, and the peach stays to the very end.

Mouthfeel - smooth stuff, not too heavy, modestly carbonated.

Drinkability - a fine summer brew, very smooth and easy to knock back. Popular with all but the the most diligent of fruit beer nazis, lol.

A Pours orange, cloudy and with a thin foam head. Minimal lacing. Sediment visible in glass.

S - The peach scent is incerdible. Smells natural, sweet, and inviting. A secondary wheat aroma is there too; smells like cooked pasta.

T - Flavors of peach are forefront. There is a bit of tangy citrus and grain taste as well. Just lots of flavor and if you like peaches you will love this.

M - Smooth flavors, a bit of a gritty feel to it. Light bodied.

O - This is a variant of what Cigar City does with Peach Jai-Alai. I think this is equally as good though as a different style. Really enjoying these folks from SC.

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

Shows up cloudy and orange with a creamy white head. Amazing retention but not a lot of lace.
Smell is full of sweet peaches and malt.
Taste is malty, peachy with hints of clove and pepper.
Rich, smooth and delicious. Medium effervescence with q fuller than medium body. Peachy aftertaste but not overwhelmingly so. Drink one, it makes a great dessert.

I poured a bottle into a mug.

Appearance- Cloudy golden color with two and a half fingers worth of foamy head. Great head retention with a nice amount of lacing.

Smell- Nothing but peaches.

Taste- Peach and wheat flavor with a slight hoppy finish. The peach flavor is not as strong as the smell.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with a nice amount of carbonation. Very crisp.

Overall- A very good fruit beer. If you are a fan of this style then you must try this one.

174 calories per bottle at 6% ABV. Not a bad fruit flavored seasonal. The peach taste is not too lite or too strong. I could last through a 6'er with this one. The best part is there is no over dose of sweetness and the aftertaste is works, which seems to be main problem with a fruit flavored beer. I would buy again.
