COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
’Tis the Season for Cheer

Happy Holidays from the "Little Brewery" in Shiner, TX. We hope you enjoy your Shiner Cheer, an Old World Dunkelweizen brewed with Texas peaches and roasted pecans. The malty flavors of this dark wheat ale are enhanced through the use of malted barley and wheat. And Kräusening ensures a smoothnessthat makes the subtle peach and pecan flavors all the more satisfying. May your days be merry and bright and your Shiner be cold.

PROSIT!

Pours a deep copper brown from the bottle with thin cream colored head that leaves light lace. Aroma is big peach up front, then malty sweetness on the back end. Taste is sweet fruit and peach worth nice nutty back end, slight bitterness. Pretty solid, better than I expected for sure.

weihenweizen (1868) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a glass. Aroma is nice peach, medium body, low carbonation, and good small-bubble lacing. Taste is peach, pecan, and some bananas. The flavors compete a little for me, but still pretty good.

Bottle. The peach thing comes through strong in the aroma and the beginning of the taste. It pours a deep amber with minimal head. Peach up front then not much after, some sweet malt, no hops. Not sure about this one. Pretty different from a lot of the other Christmas beers and not that good.

The aroma of this beer is a bit more on the fruity side... It almost smells as if this beer is made with mixed berries. This aroma isn't overpowering since this Holiday Cheer gets the right balance. The color of this beer is deep burgundy-brown and this beer is more opaque than translucent. The taste of this beer is almost a mix between cranberry upfront and a caramel aftertaste. Very delicious beer for the holidays.

Can in Florida. Faint peachy aroma. Not what I expected for winter beer but was a pleasant surprise. Easy to drink. Not too sweet despite peach flavor. Did not detect the pecan. A wonderful specimen

Draft at 3rd Base. Pours clear dark reddish brown with no head. Nose and taste is peach and caramel. Not bad

foyle (254) - Wyoming, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass Appearance: pours a 2"+ sudsy head that falls slowly with some mild lacing. Color is a mostly clear reddish-brown. Some mild carbonation streams are visible. Aroma: peaches are dominate, but also a bit of wheat grass, caramel and lightly toasted bread. Mouthfeel: light bodied, fairly crisp with a dry finish. Flavor: interesting combination of wheat, caramel, sweet barley, peaches and roasted pecans. There is a mild hop bite in the finish. Overall: extremely good as far as flavored/fruit beers go. The first pecan beer I can recall having where I can actually taste the pecan flavor. Well done Shiner!

Bottle. Aroma has an interesting combo of peach and caramel. Taste is fruity, malty, light spice. Different than your usual holiday beer, a welcomed change of pace.

1pint 8 fl oz bottle poured into pint glass. Aroma was spices and peaches. No head to it, pours a deep red. it wasn’t as sweet as I thought it would be, it has a spiced peach finish and goes down rather smoothly.
