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.
