COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
íTis 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 Kršusening 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!

Clear Dark Mahogany Reddish Brown, Huge Head Did Not Last Too Long, Light Spotty Lacing. Faint Sweet Peach Aroma. Sweet Peach, Wheat, Bitter Finish. Bitter Is Slightly Weird and a bit Unpleasant. Drinkable. Just OK. Pass It...

Pours a clear dark ruby amber with a well formed head that laces well. Said lacing lasts only a few minutes, however. Nose is of peach over a slight caramel. Light bodied with a thin mouthfeel. Slightly above normal carbonation level. The flavor profile is not complex. Like the nose, it is peach predominating over a light caramel. The beginning is a nice peach which effervesces into an ending that has pecan, but you have to really search for it. The finish is a lingering taste of peach that is OK, at best.

12 ounce bottle Appearance/ 2 full fingers of tannish foam that dissipates to a thin froth. Dark amber but clear. Nice carbonation. Smell / Big peaches out in front. Pears. Really fruity. Taste/ The first and biggest thing you get is peaches but they tell you on the bottle they use Texas peaches in the recipe. There is some hop bitterness at the end but to me the fruitiness kind of overpowers anything else that may be there. Mouth Feel / Medium bodied and creamy smooth. Overall / I gave it a 11 on this as I am not a big fan of fruit flavored beer not because it is a bad brew. I am sure that the brewer achieved what he was going after. Overall I think it fits into itís style but I would rather have a beer that has more beer flavors than fruits. That is just my preference.

Hopswagger (196) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 1, 2014
P: Dazzling ruby body with slight bubbles and a big top of micro bubble khaki head. Thin and short lived head leaving wet slippery lacing. S: Sweet fruity tea, peach, juniper berries, cranberries, raspberries, tangerines, prunes dusted with powder sugar and honeydew melon. Subtle notes of cinnamon and other spices I canít quite make out. Smells like a natural fruit roll up. T/M: Fruity like the nose but tastes oxidized and dulled down by unpleasant bitterness and a chalky after math. Light and prickly carbonation. Not really feeling this one. Taste is like diluted fruit flavored seltzer water. O: What a let down. The nose was good but lacked in taste completely. All that comes to mind is a cheap replica of a great beer style. I wonít be cheering next year.

kramer (4856) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body under a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin wispy film. The nose is very peachy with just a little dark wheat and earthy yeastiness. The flavor is pretty unusual, some dark earthy wheat, but a heavy peach candy like note that really dominates over the Dunkelweizen base beer. Canít say that I get a whole lot of pecan flavor from this, but they may be contributing to the sweetness some. Medium bodied, a little clingy, soft fizzy carbonation. Meh, donít really care for this one too much. The fruited Dunkelweizen might be an idea best left on the drawing table.

Poured a dark amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is very sweet with lots of peach. Taste is very smooth and peachy with more sweetness. Some spices. Very refreshing and easy to drink, the peach is not overdone. Overall it is pretty good!

egreener (11) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Pours a deep garnet color with a quickly fading head. Smells of sweet peaches. The taste of pecan is hard to pin down with the heavy peach and fruity flavors layering overtop.

EtTuCthulhu (989) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2014
The appearance has an extremely clear chestnut color with a large off-white head that fades quickly, and the aroma blends peaches, wheat, pecans, and caramel malts. The taste is heavy on the peaches lending itself to a mild sweetness and a slight sourness, and the palate fuses a slick texture, medium body, soft carbonation, and a short yet sweet finish.
