’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.

12oz I think from ericandersnavy, shared with my gf. Pours rich brown with a tan head. Nose is sweet with rich peach notes. Taste is sweet but also cloyingly bitter, the peach certainly comes through, but I can’t drink this.

This is a refreshing change from the normal spiced up holiday beers I am used to. The smell is dominant with peaches and citrus aromas. Initially there is a unique blend of peaches and pecans and a moderatly hoppy presence. It starts sweet but toward the end the peach flavor looses some appeal and gives way to a nutty malt aftertaste. Overall this is an interesting holiday beer that would go well with a fruity dessert dish or cake.

Overall Impression: Kind of a dull combination of lots of fruit flavors, if that makes any sense

(Thanks to Headbanger for this bottle) - Color is a deep amber with very good carbonation and a nice tight head. Aroma is light peach scent. Taste is easy, smooth and fruity. Starting with a lighter medium body it goes down smooth. Finish comes in with a nice peach taste then some bitterness and a hint of caramel. After taste has a faint nutty taste as the bitterness builds just a bit. This is a tasty little brew and an interesting take on a holiday brew.

dark ruby in color with a half-inch beige head. Soft, subtle malt aroma with a dash of fruity bubble gum. Taste is sweet and fruity, touches of apricot, and MORE than a little bubble gummy, with a dash of holiday spice. Dark, bitter aftertaste. Odd. Not bad per se, but certainly not great.

Peaches and Walnuts! Definately a southern flavor. I found it suprisingly easy to drink and was satisfied. Pours amber/rust colored and leaves a slight lacing. worht a try!

ChainGangGuy (4565) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2009
Appearance: Pours a clear, deep, dark amber body with a smallish, frothy, off-white head. Smell: The aroma is almost fully dominated by the scent of peach. Taste: Bready, toasty malts with a light sweetness. There’s the anticipated peach flavor, though, thankfully, it doesn’t overwhelm everything else like it did in the nose. Vague nuttiness. No more than a light hop bitterness. Drying, peachy finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: I don’t get it. The union of peaches and pecans alongside a dunkelweizen (which is as much a proper dunkelweizen as Shiner Bock is a bock) is totally lost on me. This just isn’t what I’m looking for in a fruit beer, winter beer, or dunkelweizen.

Not bad at all - big peach on the nose upfront. Decent looking amber body with a tall standing head. Lots of peach notes and some light spice. Nuts, but whether or not its pecan-derived is debatable. Sweet without being overly fruity.
