’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.

Pours a clear reddish brown into a stem glass with a lasting inch of head on top. The peaches come through nicely in the nose as well as caramel, cereal, toast, and nuts. The flavor is roasty and tart with a nice malty backbone. There is a lot going on in this one. Some herbal hops are noticeable along with dough, nuts, earth, and mint. The body is slightly thin with a bit of heat on the back end. Not at all what I would expect from a holiday beer but a nice departure from the norm. I wouldn’t want to drink it every day but it is certainly a well made beer.

Bottle. Individually, the nose and the appearance would be great. Together, they seem like they might not match so well. The nose is full of sweet peaches - and that’s about it. They cover up anything else that may (or may not) be going on. The beer has a reddish brown body, that, while very pretty, has me a little concerned about how the malt presence that I would associate with that color will go with the peaches. Putting aside these concerns, I take a sip and I’m not quite sure what to make of it. The peaches go pretty nice with the malt and an almost cherry like presence, but there is a bit of a sharp bite to something... not really metal, maybe medicinal and slightly astringent. Not awful, but it throws the whole thing into a bit of a tailspin towards a sweet, peachy finish.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Gift from a friend. Great pour with a nice reddish brown color and white head. Fairly intense peach flavor that became a little cloyingly sweet. Good carbonation.

Pours copper/brown with a small tan head that disapears. Aroma of caramel, pecans and peach. Taste is the same. Not a big fan of this one.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear, amber colored body with a finger-width, tan head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is a moderate peach syrup, wheat, sugary apricot jell-o, and a few nuts. Flavor has more of a nutty, caramel maltiness than the aroma. Still has a gelatin, peachy-apricot flavor to it as well as a touch of wheat. Finishes nutty and malty with a very light, earthy bitterness. Moderate length aftertaste after a light to medium, smooth body and a moderate to heavy carbonation. Overall, a bland beer. Malty and nutty with a fuzzy peach. Eh...

The wife likes these holiday beers. I thought this was OK but nothing I would buy again.

12oz twist- off bottle. Mahogany pour, thin tan head. Perfume aroma of peaches & oily pecans, covered in chocolate. Thin and light bodied (like most Shiner beers). This is full flavored. Finishes with a flavor of grilled peaches, very fruity. Hint of candied pecans. Smooth and creamy. Quite an amazing blend of flavors. I am impressed.

Great looking, festooned 12 oz. bottle (great design) yields a clear, dark amber beer with a sizable, fairly long-lasting tan head. There was some adequate lacing. The advertised peach component is easy to spot in the nose and mid-palate flavor profile, but it’s not overpowering. I missed the pecan adjunct, but may’ve mistaken it for vanilla. Palate entry and finish are fairly well-balanced and there’s a pleasant and lingering aftertaste. A good pick if you like fruit beer.

For some reason Shiner is everywhere in California, and for cheap, me likey. Comparing this to the other winter beers, this one was a bit much on the "drinking a cake" thing. Yes you get a pecan flavor and peaches, but really, not the best in a beer. poured dark, little head, sweet candy taste. Overall, this was ok, not bad, they did explain the beer on the bottle and it tasted like it said.
