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!

355mL courtesy of Ms Billingslea who insisted it did not suck despite my prejudice. The pour is clear, deep ruby with a medium, rocky, tan head with no lacing at all. Aroma of dried peach, raisins, pie fillings. Taste is watery, dried peach, some fresh berry acidity. No nutty bitterness or nutty richness I was hoping for. Chalky, suddy palate. Much better than I expected.

Maybe I am being charitable, but the peaches have grown on me. Not a greatexample of beermaking, but it is just quirky enough. The raosted malt works with the nuttiness of the pecans. The fruit notes aren’t overly sweet or cloying. Just enough to remind you they are there. Shiner doesn’t miss the mark by far with this one.

Meh. Amber peach beer. Not bad, not great. Poured with a small, off white head and no lace. Color is a clear amber brown. Aroma is peaches and malt. Flavor is like nose with a little bittersweetness at the end. Carbonic tartness helps too. Finish is like flavor and ends with a peach carbonic tartness. Ok beer, better than I thought at first.

Pours a dark amber with not much for head. Winter brew spice nose with a hint of peach. Smooth taste and a peach finish. Gotta love winter brews!

When I think holiday cheer, pecans maybe but peaches? And this beer has little nuttiness that I can find. The peach flag flies from aroma to the back of the tongue. Doesn’t have that fake fruit taste but I finished and wished there was some spice to mix things up.

Fizzy clear amber pour - nose of berry-ish fruitiness and dough, kind of resembling fruitcake - moderate acidity, but mostly sweet in aroma - very "candied fruit" smelling - flavor is peach-esque up front, but if I had not know it was peaches, I may have guessed cranberry - again, a hint of acidity - the second half is doughy, rather sweet, with some raisin and caramel, resembling a bock - this is the point where is starts to taste somewhat decent, but everything that came before detract from what is quite possibly a good base beer - eh, it’s okay.

gururyan (640) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Poured into small yard, a deep red brown with minimal to no head. Subtle peach aroma. Tastes like a Coors Dark (if one existed) with a hint of peach. Thanks, one is enough.

Dark, bronze-brown. Thin head dissipates very quickly. You can smell the peaches, and you can definitely taste them. A bit of nuttiness at the end. Body is thin and this has the same problem as a lot of fruit beers: it tastes more like fruit than beer. Not much body.

WOW! I was absolutely blown away. It’s a dark wheat ale brewed with pecans and peaches...w/ malted barley and wheat. My new favorite Holiday beer!

bottle. Pours a dark brown to black with a tan head. Nose is strongly of peach with a hint of nuts. Like a peach dreamsicle. Taste is also very peachy with spices and faint nuttiness. Mouthfeel is medium-thin.
