íTis 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 Kršusening 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.

12 oz, bottle, $1.50 at HyVee, Storm Lake, IA in July. In other words, last yearís beer. Iíll try to take any aging problems into account. Nice amber pour, then in my American Wheat glass, itís a ruby/brown with a brief topper of foam. Smell has sweet peaches, almost a hint of strawberry and apricot, too. Very nice, not too sweet fruit smell, and Iím a guy who can find fruit beers tiresome in a hurry. Taste is a nearly equal balance of dunkel malts with fruit thatís hard to find. Skips the graininess of some dunkels, and maybe a fresher bottle or tap might show some weizen esters. I still donít really know how pecans play out in a beer, but that seems to be the source of a slight bitterness that I canít put to hops. Iím imagining this did in fact use peaches in the brew; most peach beers would rack onto peach puree and pick up a lot of sourness. But no sour here, just a nice mildly sweet peach note that makes this indeed a nice holiday beer for before dinner or dessert. Iíve had a couple southern beers with pecans now, and a few with southern fruits, all from Abita, in fact, and itís interesting to see this as a new regional beer variation.

served in 12oz bottle. usually the peach flavor is in a lambic...but in this holiday beer its quite refreshing with a hint of nuttiness. honestly didnt think the peach would work but its not a bad beer. the color is yellowish and a decent head...i let it warm up and the peach was very pronounced.

Medium brown color, average off white head. Sugary malt nose with fresh brioche and a hint of fruit. Light to medium in body, smooth on the tongue. I was hoping to get more of the pecan out of this, but the peach steals the show. Great flavor without being overly sweet. I donít normally think of Peach as being a "Christmas" flavor, but it works here.

Bottle. Dark amber colored with light brown head. The aroma is predominantly peaches and apricots. The taste is naturally heavy on the peaches with some nutty malt, banana bread and caramel flavors also in the mix. A peach flavored Dunkelweizen is not exactly my ideal winter seasonal but the overall flavor is surprisingly smooth and refreshing.

Pours amber with beige head and foamy lacing. Strong note of peach. Taste is a bit off, but I think it is due to the peachiness of it. Peach beer just isnít that appealing to me. Some hops balance this out so it isnít really sweet.

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 arenít overly sweet or cloying. Just enough to remind you they are there. Shiner doesnít 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. Doesnít have that fake fruit taste but I finished and wished there was some spice to mix things up.
