This refreshing wheat ale is brewed with 100% real peaches and a hint of hibiscus. It’s a most appealing brew with an inviting, jammy fruit flavor enhanced by a subtle tartness from the hibiscus.

Peach Jam by Two Roads Brewing Co. is being reviewed as a Fruit Beer (Category 29A) per the 2021 BJCP style guidelines.

This beer pours a medium gold color with a light orange hue. The hazy clarity makes this beer opaque. A white-colored head of tight, mousse-like bubbles quickly dissipates. However, it leaves a thin layer on top of the beer and a beautiful layer which clung to the sideS of the glass.  

This beer has a fairly neutral aroma with a clean fermentation character.  A low peach aroma comes in wisps, especially as the beer warmed, as well as a low doughy character, which also becomes apparent. Floral hibiscus is not noted in the aroma.

The initial flavor is a slight tartness with a medium bitterness, which quickly turns into a medium-low note of peach.  There is a slight malt sweetness with no malt flavor or hop flavor.

 This beer has a medium-thin body with moderate carbonation and a slight wheat-like creaminess to it.

Overall this is an average beer that is fairly neutral in flavor and aroma. The addition of the hibiscus adds a nice tart element to it along with the tartness of the peach addition. Its relatively low ABV (5.5%) and unpretentious profile make this is a good choice to throw in the cooler and float down a river with on a hot summer day.
