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!

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.

Mora2000 (5893) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Pours dark red with an off-white head. Aroma is strong peaches and maybe some pecans. Flavor is pecan, caramel malt and peaches. Quite a bit of nuttyness in the flavor and it finishes slightly bitter. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. I think this is targeted towards macro drinkers but it is an interesting beer anyway. Not bad overall.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Pours a really nice chestnut brown with an off white head. Aroma is huge on the fruit notes with some mild malt undertones. Flavor is similar bt is really sweet. Almost like straight peach juice. Not bad but a little sweet.
