’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.

12oz bottle, from Party Source. Best by 02/02/14. Clear red orange color, sort of brown hue. Thin off-white head. Decent splotches of lace. Big peach aroma, wow. Very unexpected and interesting, I didn’t realize this was a fruit beer. Peach aroma is pretty pleasant and tasty. Good smooth, lighter cabronation. Lightly slick texture. Light to medium body. Easy to swig. Moderate sweet taste, lightly spicy. Pecan influence is very subtle, maybe a light marzipan type flavor. Some caramel malt, light toffee. Tasty winter fruit beer. I’m glad this isn’t another winter warmer. An enjoyable change of pace, and a creative way to do a winter ale.

Interesting and not bad. The combo of wheat and understated peach along with a decently balanced hop/malt mix. There is some substance here and uniqueness. From a pic6 at Tops.

Poured from 12 oz bottle, reddish mahogany in color with a medium off white head. Malty caramel nose, with a subtle peach aroma. Sweet syrupy taste, kinda thick with light bitterness, and a touch of cola flavor.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 1/25/2014. Pours almost crystal clear deep ruby brown color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big peach, caramel, toffee, brown bread, wheat, floral, light banana, and herbal earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with big peach presence and moderate malt balance; with good strength. Taste of big peach, banana, caramel, toffee, brown bread, wheat, clove, pepper, floral, light nuttiness, and herbal earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of peach, banana, caramel, toffee, brown bread, wheat, clove, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of peach, yeast, and malt flavors; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy, smooth, and slightly syrupy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice fruited dunkelweizen. Good balance and robustness of fruit, malt, and yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Pours a dark amber with light, off-white head. Aromas of citrus and sweet gum. Tastes of peaches, plums, and tangerines. An ok winter seasonal, but too much citrus for my taste.
