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!

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. A weak beer overall with a hint of peaches and pecans. I wouldn’t ask for a second.

It’s okay it smells kind of fake. The taste is alright. Really sugary sweet. Some plum and syrupy sweetness. Not bad just kind of average. it tastes like cough syrup too. weird.

presario (4705) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 11, 2014
Dark Fall amber colour. Light head. Just a hint of a metallic note. Kind of a weird aroma; sweet, baking additives like artificial flavours, nuts and cheap candy. Now that I described the aroma I get a lot of reflective notes in the flavor. Light sweetness, dime store toffee, pecans, have to search for the peach but then it jumps a bit in the searchlight. Overall OK in that mini-macro way.

Shanebrews (194) - Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Holiday Cheer pours an amber-brown color with a thick creamy head. I have an issue with the appearance because Shiner used caramel coloring and this beer is still not ’dunkel’. The aroma presents fruit that could be pineapple, cherry, or peach and a hint of spice. The taste reveals that it is peach and the finish is creamy with a mild nuttiness. Shiner is ambiguous as to whether this is spiced, and there is no bittering but that is okay in this style. An interesting brew but not a great one.

COMRADEJOSH (304) - Ft Hood, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Aroma of malt and peaches that stand in contrast to the dark cola appearance. Taste hits you with peaches and a hint of pecans even if a little on the syrupy side. Never had anything like this before definitely a sipping beer though or it could become cloying.

basaywhat (59) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Pours a dark red/amber with a moderate head that faded to a light little lacing. Aroma was of sweet fruity peach. Taste starts off kind of malty with peach in the mix. It finishes with mild hops and slightly pecan nutty aftertaste.

"no surprise here...with the peaches and pecans in this beer, the female in our tasting group liked this one best. it had a pleasing aroma, peach dominated with some malt and very light hops in the background. pours semi-dark amberish, smooth beer, light bodied. the peach and pecans (finish) both come through in the flavor and the beer gets points for being unique. a bit of a pleasant surprise."

Transfer from BA review on 11-18-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a light brown/mahogany color with a two finger cream-red tinted head. The head has a decent level of retention, fading to give a light level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is big of a sweet sugary smell of peach and apricot. It almost smells like a peach candy or a peach fruit roll-up. Mixed with the intense sweet and sugary fruit aroma is a little bit of spice as well. Taste – The taste starts out of the sweet fruit that was detected in the nose. These flavors are mixed with a light wheat and roast flavor upfront. Some spice flavors soon come to the tongue with a sugary/candy flavor accompanies this to produce a spiced fruit candy flavor on the tongue. Toward the end the peach and apricot flavors surge in strength along with a slight increase in the spice and roast flavors to leave a sweet and spiced peach and apricot taste on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly creamier side with a carbonation level that is a little on the lower side. A little more carbonation may have been nice for the sweet flavors of the brew, but with that said, the creaminess was quite good for the spice, lighter roasted flavors, and the overall smoothness of the beer. Overall – While a little too fruity and sweet for the style, it was actually a very tasty brew. Easy to drink and one to go to from time to time.
