’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.

Transfer from BA review on 11-18-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a light brown/mahogany color with a two finger cream-red tinted head. The head has a decent level of retention, fading to give a light level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is big of a sweet sugary smell of peach and apricot. It almost smells like a peach candy or a peach fruit roll-up. Mixed with the intense sweet and sugary fruit aroma is a little bit of spice as well. Taste – The taste starts out of the sweet fruit that was detected in the nose. These flavors are mixed with a light wheat and roast flavor upfront. Some spice flavors soon come to the tongue with a sugary/candy flavor accompanies this to produce a spiced fruit candy flavor on the tongue. Toward the end the peach and apricot flavors surge in strength along with a slight increase in the spice and roast flavors to leave a sweet and spiced peach and apricot taste on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly creamier side with a carbonation level that is a little on the lower side. A little more carbonation may have been nice for the sweet flavors of the brew, but with that said, the creaminess was quite good for the spice, lighter roasted flavors, and the overall smoothness of the beer. Overall – While a little too fruity and sweet for the style, it was actually a very tasty brew. Easy to drink and one to go to from time to time.

Pours a dark brown color with tan head. Cereal grains, spice, a little dark fruits, and some caramel malts on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little spice. My favorite Shiner beer.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Appearance: The body has a dark garnet red color with visible carbonation inside. The pour produced a tall light tan head with good retention and lacing. Smell: There are loads of ripe and over ripe peaches, nectarines and plums. Behind all the fruit it has a light white bready maltiness. Taste / Palate: The aroma is matched on the tongue. It’s sweet up front with loads of stone fruit with a touch of tart black cherry. Mild hop bitterness come in to add a nice balance of bitterness in the finish. Notes: This is an amazingly complex and well-balanced beer from the Spoetzl Brewery!

Probably my favorite Shiner, which to be honest, is not saying much. The aroma was of peach and malt. Burnt caramel color. Average weight with good carbonation. Pleasant blend of flavors with subtle peach, pecan and wood. Hops are low, which is fine. Well done beer.

hotstuff (4269) - Indiana, USA - APR 26, 2014
Rated on 01-05-2012 (Bottle) When poured, the head is small, semi-frothy and ivory. It has a orange transparent body, fizzy carbonation observed and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malt, nutty, suggestion of wheat, peaches, and sweet. The flavor is sweet, peaches, nutty, malt, suggestion of some wheat, and has a short dry finish. The mouthfeel is softly carbonated and this beer is light-medium bodied. The flavor of this beer is a nice surprise to me as fruit beers are not one of my favorite beer styles, but this beer has a tasty flavor and is worth trying despite the low ratings.

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours hazy chestnut with frothy off-white head. Nose is heavy cherry, cinnamon, nuts. Tastes of cherry,spice, malt, peach, and nuts, and although a bit sweet, tastes good.

Damico (2680) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Pours dark deep amber with a sandy colored head. Aroma is my favorite part, sweet, prevalent peaches straight up beautiful in the nose, so pleasant. Body is a bit thinner than I wanted but appropriate for the style. Flavors bring peaches and a sublte malty base, balanced well with a bit of toastiness and no bitterness.

Bottle into an ale glass. Pour is a dark amber with thin head. Aroma is a malt fruit cocktail. Taste is a smooth malt with a light mix of fruits. Finish is clean.

Erzengel (3550) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 13, 2014
Dark in the glass with a beige head. The nose is smooth and sweet. The beer starts very fruity and smooth. Lots of peaches here, a bit sticky and sweet. The pecan nuts are very subtle in the dry malt tastable, smooth and easy to drink. The aftertaste is long, peaches, dry malt, nice sweetness.
A nice easy to drink beer which I think will fit perfect to a christmas-dinner. But for me it is a bit too sweet and sticky. --> 10/12/10/10
