RJ Rockers Son of a Peach Wheat Ale, a summer seasonal offering from RJ Rockers, poured a surprisingly dark, cloudy orange into the glass with a small white head and mild carbonation. The nose carried wheat malt and a peach aroma that had an artificial twang to it.
RJ Rockers Son of a Peach Wheat Ale opened with a peach flavor that was more natural tasting than the nose but still had a chemical bite to it. A sweetness akin to Sweet n’ Low came through in the middle, mucking with the peach flavor a bit. The ale ended on a dry and somewhat tart note that brought the flavor back around.
RJ Rockers Son of a Peach was enjoyable, but there were too many off flavors (almost all tied to artificial fruit sweetness) in the middle for me to recommend it as a good beer. The finish of the ale does a lot to redeem it, but it’s too little, too late.
