3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(draft @ Roman Bistro - Pittsburgh, PA) Copper pour with a beige head. Fruity and lightly spiced aroma. Peaches and pecans? Not too sure about that but there was a good amount of medicinal fruity notes. [11/27/15]

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Has a zesty peach and berry aroma. Deep clear amber body with only a slim head. Bright berry and peach taste. Has a some caramel malt give it some balance. Refreshing with a clean finish. Enjoying this one a lot and Iíll have to pick up some more.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle from Food Lion in Short Pump, VA The beer poured a clear dark amber with beige frothy head. No lacing! The aroma was sweet with apricots and caramel malts. There was a hint of spices. The beer was sweeter than I normally prefer. It is a balanced beer with a medium body and soft carbonation. This may be an excellent beer for the Christmas season.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, stupid twist top. Nose is peaches, a little medicinal but far from bad, just closeted and a little dank/musty; thereís some generic berry fruitiness going on that I really like. Pours dark ruby in the glass but more bronze from the neck, short head is tan. Taste is a mix of peach and berry, oozes out some toasted nuts and recedes into Sam Adams house flavor nuttiness; the fruit still does taste artificial but thatís not grating on me right now. Medium bitterness but it lasts and buttresses all above it. Full body maybe a little too full but not syrupy, and though thereís sweetness coming from the peach infusion, the malt is attenuated down to nice digestibility. Works for me. [2015.12.12: 3.3]

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Shinerís brew is called Holiday Cheer yet fruit-focused seasonal beers tend to bring out my inner Krampus. This peachy Dunkel definitely pushes the fruit element a bit too strong for my liking. Still, I admire the effort. The peach works well with the malty wheat and barley sweetness. I donít get a lot from the pecan. The peach takes the spotlight. At least it actually tastes like fresh Texas peaches.

I donít taste much difference between this and their regular flagship brew, and thatís pretty okay with me. Theyíre both solid beers and this one fits in line with many holiday beers in that itís safe; itís not going to knock your socks off, but itís not bad at all.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear dark bronze color. About one finger creamy beige head. Light retention, light lacing.
Aroma is peaches, and peaches. Oh and peaches. Very fruity and nice. Thereís maybe some roasted pecans in there.
Taste is peaches, no surprise. But thatís about all. Yeah, thereís some nuttiness, but itís more in the finish. Itís a wheat beer, but doesnít really look like it, or does it taste like it. Oh, because itís also made with barley. It is sweet
Mouthfeel is light. Lightly carbonated. Light and refreshing. A little bitter on the finish.
Overall, itís okay. When I picked it up, I was all excited about the peaches and pecan combination. But Iím not amazed by it. Itís decent, but I donít know that I suggest buying it. If you see it at a party or something, then yes, grab it. If you can find a single, okay, itís worth it. But donít buy a case to try it. Meh...

Bottle - good size foamy head, pretty dark Amber color, definite big peach aroma and flavor, light malt backbone, can't say I necessarily pick up any pecans but still pretty good peach beer overall

Drink it without smelling it. Not that it smells bad, just not easy to drink.
