2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle... Pours a nice dark ruby red color, small head that faded fast. Nose is sweet malts, and light fruitiness. Taste is initially some sweet peach.. almost like peach iced tea? Light roasted malts, pecans.... mehhh. Body is on the lighter side. Overall: Strange combo of taste in this beer. When I think of a holiday or winter beer, I think big, roasted malts, warming.... this isnít it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, as pictured. Much, much sweeter than normal shiner....a little bit fruity. I donít really get the peach and pecan, but just a general fruit flavor.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark, clear amber pour with tall tan topper. Smells of toast, peaches, and sugar. A sort of off flavor--candied pecans with artificial peach undertones. Abrupt finish. Not my favorite.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
For a macro, this is reasonably tasty and Iíd drink it over quite a few other things. But it kind of misses the mark - some of the negatives of both wheat beers and fruity beers. The color is a nice reddish brown, not much head. Smell is sweet and fruity. Taste is pretty sweet - a little flat. Itís quite a bit better than shock top with a bit of kool aid, but it still makes me think of it.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a dark gold. Has a strong berry - specifically strawberry - aroma. Taste is also very berry with no other flavor. Taste like Christmas.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle. Deep amber with small head. Iíve had really bad luck with Shiner beers, but this is one of my favorite holiday beers. The peach is perfectly done, and the nuttiness and spicing is pleasant. Many holiday ales are a bit heavy, but this is not at all.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Awesome sweet peach aroma. Dark amber body. Peach flavor is a little more subdued than aroma promises, but thatís not a bad thing. Festive yet not overly spiced. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber red pour big head. Aroma of intense peaches. Tastes similarly intense peaches. Some nuttiness. I wouldíve liked more hop profile since I often find hops to be somewhat peachy. There was a big missed opportunity here, but this is still a good balanced fruit beer that avoids being overly sweet.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle poured into a glass stein. Smells like peaches and pecans, a really great aroma. Tastes a little peachy, but with enough malt to balance things out, really surprised and impressed how much I like this, might have to stock up for the winter.
