’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.

Not your usual winter warmer, this Shiner seasonal goes for a unique fruity and sweet dessert angle instead of the more traditional spice-centric and rich alcoholic winter style. Features sweet peachy notes and nutty pecan flavors as described, which are actually light and fresh on the palate and pleasantly balanced with some bready malt. Appearance is thoroughly clear for being a self-described wheat beer, also I'm uneasy about the caramel color added, not sure what they were going for on that aspect. But still a pleasant and enjoyable beer overall, this may be one of the few fruit-infused beers that wasn't syrupy sweet or overbearingly fruity. Well-balanced.

Pours a nice dark Amber/brown color. Tastes and smells like sweet (almost candies) peaches. There is some roasted nuttiness to the aftertaste along with the peaches.

Very well made and very nice Christmas holiday offering in Bavarian and Austrian tradition. I’ll be coming back for this one seasonally. Appearance: Direct pour Sam Adams glass at refrigerator temperature. Inviting peachy, amber, rosey caste with fosmy, fizzy semi-long lasting head. Aroma: Peachy notes come through most for me. Mouthfeel: Light but sturdy, slightly fizzy. Aftertaste: Peachy on retro olfaction with slightly bitter finish. Flavors are more balanced when it warms a bit inthe glass. Overall: Very drinkable and works well with lighter, sweeter, more complex food or desert pairing.

Lacking aroma. 12 ounce can. Light, crisp flavor but not a lot of distinctiveness. Maybe some cranberry and a little vanilla?

From a bottle into a glass. The pour has a lot of peaches, raisins, carmel nutty noyes with a clear dark ruby in appearence. With a medium body and I like for being different than other Xmas beers with a lot of spice flavors .

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear brown color, light head cover, no lace. Aroma is malt with a little pear in it. Interesting. Taste is again malt and pear. It coasts through a fizzy swallow to a lightly spiced, lightly bittered finish. Way better than I expected.

Bottle to tulip. Clear ruby brown with little to no head. Aroma of cherries and plums. Taste is cherry and plum. One dimensional but tasty.

From the bottle, pours a rich amber with a thick bubbly off white head. Fruity aroma, like more of a pear cider than a Christmas beer. Taste is also fruity, mostly pear, some green apple, just a hint of holiday spice at the end. Overall smooth and light, not bad, but not what I would think of as a winter/holiday/Christmas beer.

Amazing Cranberry aroma. Smells like a good Christmas candle. Little head on a dark red body. Cranberry flavor up front with dry cereal. Great season brew!

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle, thank you Danny! Has some very odd aromas and very odd flavors. Not very good.
