3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured clear cola brown with a lovely initial cap of beige head. The aroma picked up clean, fresh peaches and caramel with touches of honey and vanilla.. warm, darker spices played well against the peaches. The flavor found tart peaches throughout with sweetened peach meat settling onto the grainy middle.. caramel and a little molasses supported.. finished a bit too sugary, but it did pick up some nice toasted pecan. Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation on the palate.. spicy and warm in the end.. not bad, but the nose was the best part.

I enjoy this beer, when I first pour it and sniff the aroma I detected strong fruitiness like cranberries. then I read the description and saw the peaches and pecan. which it does have. the palate is medium but its smooth and quite deep in the malts.
great stuff, Merry Xmas!!!

A nice mahogany pour with a small off-white head. It has a wonderful peach and wheat aroma. The taste has a medium sweetness to it from the peaches, but is well balanced with a roasted wheat malt. This medium body brew has slick texture and semi-dry finish.

In the bottle from HyVee Council Bluffs. Pours ruby dark brown with a medium thick off white head. Incredible aroma of peaches. This is just amazing to smell and enjoy. The beer itself is bigger and tastier than typical Shiner products. The fruit is a bit like strawberries at the finish. A surprisingly delicious product.

Dark reddish color. Nice peach cherry infused aroma. Well carbonated, cola like fruit flavor. Sharp lightly balanced flavor. Lightly fruity mouthfeel. Ends somewhat unremarkable. Interesting beer.

I had this one on tap at the Barley House in Algonquin, IL. Nice black color with dark red highlights and virtually no head. Nice and bready with gingery notes and maybe a little nutmeg. Hops were balanced but not pronounced to make me wonder about them. Kind of herbal. This one would be sessionable also.

Saw this one at the store and picked one up. Pours a great amber color, but reading the bottle, it appears they added caramel color. I consider this cheating, but looks great. The malty character is not bad and it is actually pretty smooth.
