íTis 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 Kršusening 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.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a dark chestnut color which is disappointingly devoid of haziness for the style. The head is a one finger off-white shade. It isnít particularly creamy, nor does it have great retention. It leaves behind a thin ring of lacing on the glass. S: Peach notes are at the forefront. Iím having trouble picking up any nuanced malt qualities, though, and thatís unfortunate. Maybe a touch of caramel and some wheat. At first, I thought I picked up a cheesy scent, but thatís gone away almost entirely in the glass. The fruitiness IS pretty nice anyways. T: Okay, I lied - the malt here is like a punch in the face. It hits the palate immediately with caramel-laden sweetness, clashing with the (nice) peach notes instead of coexisting peacefully. At least the peachy finish is pleasant - too bad I donít pick up much pecan flavor. Thereís too much in the way of clashing flavors for me to enjoy this. M: Light, but too sweet on the palate to really inspire drinkability. Carbonation does its damnedest to help it go down, though. O: Itís a shame about its lack of balance, because I enjoy the fruity flavors of this. Wasnít a fan of this one, frankly. On the plus side, I can see this appealing to other drinkers.

Drink it without smelling it. Not that it smells bad, just not easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This one made us scratch our chins a bit. Liked it and drinkeable for maybe 2 or 3 at night at most. Kinda wierd just like Austin. Commendable job though making a Peach beer still taste like a beer and not a trendy ice or a cider. I would drink it again but not buy it.

Pours dark caramel with a thick tan head. Aroma of sweet nuts (pecans?). Initial taste of pecans and sweet caramel. Like pecan syrup on pancakes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Peaches dominate the first sip, the pecans take a couple seconds to arrive. Nice tasting beer.

12 oz can part of a six pack from Winco mega grocer in Salem. $7.29 I have no idea how this got here..but lets try it out! Pours a very attractive darker amber with garnet hints. And a lovely smooth creamy tan head. Can get peaches right enough in the aroma. They tend to dominate. Only later do the nuts and caramel arrive. Taste is rather thinner than expected..but its nice enough..again getting lot of peach, some spicy peppery stuff and a bit of nuttiness. Fine. KInda thin mouth feel but its got nice tight carbonation..that helps. Nice fruity beer.
