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!

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!

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.

12-oz. Thanks, Headbanger! Pours a crystal rubied dark amber. Creamy, fairly thin off-white head. Sheets of lace. Canned peaches, kind of syrupy, on the nose. Sour brown bread there as well. Brown bread and peaches on the mid-palate. Fairly neutral, slightly nutty finish.

emacgee (4203) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Via trade. Pours a translucent ruby copper with a two finger frothy light tan head. The nose is fruity, mildly artificial, smells a lot like Juicy Juice, mild sweet spice character. The flavor is fruity, more artificial than the nose, tastes a lot like Juicy Juice, crisp, metallic bitterness, sweet. Palate shows a mild astringency. Interesting.

fidelis83 (2061) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Pours clear dark copper with a 2 finger creamy beige head that has decent retention. Aroma is peach skin, a little apricot, sweet grain, karo syrup, a hint of nuttiness. Flavor is fresh peach, peach pie with lots of bitter peach skins, weak sweet grainy malt, some spice, a hint of bark like earthy notes. Finish is bitter peach and herbal notes. Palate is medium to thin with a slightly sticky feel. Not bad but not too good, would probably go good with some sort of cake or cookie dessert.

dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2009
reddish brown color, medium off-white head, lacy. nose of peach candy (is there such a thing?), artificial seeming. flavor follows aroma, candyish peach, even a touch of candy corn, painful to drink. medium bodied, fizzy, yucky peach finish. pretty dreadful offering which i will avoid in the future. thanks to cornfield for the bottle. the label says "give one to someone you love". that applies to so many things, but probably not this beer.

djd07 (4517) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear malt with a small frothy light tan head. The aroma is a sweet fruit apricot and light malt. Decent spotty lacing on the glass. The taste is dried fruit malt with peach and a nice clean finish. Easy to drink a good fruit beer from shiner.

Not really sure why I bought a bottle of this, but what the hell. Actually a beatiful looking beer in the glass. Deep reddish/brown with moderate head. Aroma is definite peach and oddness. Taste is a miserable mix of dull caramel malts, nuts and peach. Fucking awful mess of a beer.
