’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 btl form a sixer shared by funky brewster. Pours a clear copper with a white head. Big peachy aroma, very sugary and koolaid fruity. Crisp light bodied mouthfeel. A lot of peach, not much pecan, and not much wheat. Not a bad session beer but not much going on otherwise.

Bottle. Peaches, light sweet malt and lightly nutty. Decent, drinkable fruit beer, but not much character. "Bitch Beer"

Bottle: The aroma consists of peaches, pecans, and light butterscotch. It pours a transparent copper with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with lots of pecans. The finish has light peach and butterscotch. Short of being tart, I rarely like peaches in beer...and like butterscotch even less. Light bodied with mild carbonation.

Dark red color, average head. Smells of canned sweet syrup fruit, tastes of cherries, peaches and a slight almond with the sweet canned syrup rushing in for an aftertaste. A tad on the thick side, seems natural for something that tastes like sweet syrup. Not bad, will drink again.

Drake (11432) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market, Glen Allen, VA. Pours a clear dark red color with a large tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of peaches, berries, cherries, caramel. The taste is canned peaches, faint nutty notes, caramel, cocktail cherries. Pretty much a canned fruit cocktail beer. Thin-medium bodied. Glad I didn’t get the six pack of this.

Tmoney99 (12741) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2010
Bottle. Poured clear reddish brown color and an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate dark tart fruit aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Medium tart fruit sweet flavor with a medium spicy sweet fruit finish of moderate duration. Refreshing fruit beer.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Bottle from Sam’s in Durham. I gotta admit I am enticed by these catchy retro Shiner labels. Pours slightly reddish brown with small and fizzy beige head that is gone quickly. Nose of sweet malt, peaches, and a hint of vomit. Maybe it’s just because my kid puked on me earlier, but I got vomit on the mind. Still, not a terrible-smelling beer. Tastes the same, but subtract a little bit of vomit and add a touch of pecan. Palate is both thin and overcarbonated.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Dark copper pour, moderate light beige head. Aroma is loaded with sweet cooked peaches. The peach is much less dominant on the flavor, where they’re paired with a dark bready maltiness with subtle nuttiness. Medium body, not at all watery. Fairly nice, definitely the best I’ve had from Shiner.

Signalwriter (86) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2010
It’s the first 12-ounce bottle of this 2010 season and pours a nice consistent mahogany with a tan head. Its aroma is of sweet peaches plus a hint of roasted pecans. Unlike some other Shiner beers, I find this one’s consistency and palate to be medium-weight and flavorful, with the pecan most notable toward the end of the glass. Smooth and creamy – a great blend of flavors. Tastes great so I am happy to have started the “Holiday Cheer” early.
