’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.

Amber with an eggshell, really nice head. Aroma mostly of peaches. Taste is mostly of peaches, and almost balanced with malt - peach being slightly dominant. Most of the pecan flavor is in the finish. Being a Texan, I’m a bit of a fan of Shiner, but even more of peaches and pecans, I think this is a pretty good beer that people should at least give a try.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2010
Enjoyed from a 12oz bottle in a tulip glass. The beer pours a very deep brown color, with a mild white head. The nose shows a pleasant character of peaches. The palate also shows strong notes of peach, interestingly lacking the usually noticeable esters found in hefeweizens. While this is certainly not truly unpleasant, it also doesn’t fall within the style’s guidelines. Continental malt flavors come through, though they are generally masked by the aforesaid fruit. A slight nut flavor comes through toward the finish. The finish is moderately fruity. Overall, an interesting holiday-themed beer that is pleasant and generally well-executed.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - NOV 4, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark mahogany with very small beige head. The aroma is definitely peaches up front, then some caramel, toast, herbal hops, and bready yeast. The flavor also has obvious peach, but not as strong as the aroma. Some slight caramel and toasted rye back it up, along with some earthy bitterness. Solid enough brew, but not really my thing.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours a deep golden amber with a small white head. Aroma is sweet and peach fruity, little more. Just basic malty and rich juicy fruit. Flavor is so peachy. No pecan noticeable, just malty sweet. Some grain and sugar in the finish. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Not offensive, just boring and single

adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2010
Tasted from a 12 oz. bottle purchased in Fort Collins, Colorado. Medium amber, pretty translucent appearance. Quite fruity aroma- mostly like peaches but it could easily be described as tropical fruit. Light bodied flavor with hints of tropical fruit. Pretty simple and not all that interesting.

bhensonb (12947) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Bottle from Total Wine in Roseville, CA. Pours ruddy amber with a foamy beige head. Unusual nutty peach aroma. Sort of like somebody baked a cake? Med + body/frothy carb. The flavor is passing strange. There’s a lot of bitter nut oil, and there’s a lot of peach. I have never tasted anything like this. These guys are insane. The finish is like sucking walnuts - ok like sucking pecans. Pretty darn astringent. These guys are insane. I’m not sure I like the flavor - but I’m rating it like I do. These guys have driven me insane.

bpreo (2183) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Might be the first Fruit Beer I have ever enjoyed. Nice peachy flavor, not overpowering at all, and still retains its taste as a normal beer as well.

Suttree (5682) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Dark reddish brown, decent head. Smells like strawberry and bark, with some other fruity notes. Flavor is sweet, strawberry, cherry and the some nutty, earthy flavors. Odd at first, then kinda cloying.

Nice aroma and a great everyday beer. Light in flavor, medium carbonation, pretty color.

Dark red color with an off white head. Strong aroma of peaches. Flavors of wheat, peaches and caramel. Not recommended.
