’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 dark amber with not much for head. Winter brew spice nose with a hint of peach. Smooth taste and a peach finish. Gotta love winter brews!

When I think holiday cheer, pecans maybe but peaches? And this beer has little nuttiness that I can find. The peach flag flies from aroma to the back of the tongue. Doesn’t have that fake fruit taste but I finished and wished there was some spice to mix things up.

Fizzy clear amber pour - nose of berry-ish fruitiness and dough, kind of resembling fruitcake - moderate acidity, but mostly sweet in aroma - very "candied fruit" smelling - flavor is peach-esque up front, but if I had not know it was peaches, I may have guessed cranberry - again, a hint of acidity - the second half is doughy, rather sweet, with some raisin and caramel, resembling a bock - this is the point where is starts to taste somewhat decent, but everything that came before detract from what is quite possibly a good base beer - eh, it’s okay.

Poured into small yard, a deep red brown with minimal to no head. Subtle peach aroma. Tastes like a Coors Dark (if one existed) with a hint of peach. Thanks, one is enough.

Dark, bronze-brown. Thin head dissipates very quickly. You can smell the peaches, and you can definitely taste them. A bit of nuttiness at the end. Body is thin and this has the same problem as a lot of fruit beers: it tastes more like fruit than beer. Not much body.

WOW! I was absolutely blown away. It’s a dark wheat ale brewed with pecans and peaches...w/ malted barley and wheat. My new favorite Holiday beer!

bottle. Pours a dark brown to black with a tan head. Nose is strongly of peach with a hint of nuts. Like a peach dreamsicle. Taste is also very peachy with spices and faint nuttiness. Mouthfeel is medium-thin.

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.
