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.

PROSIT!

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.

Dark copper, not much head, medium body. Sweetish aroma, sweet peach taste up front with a discordant medium bitter finish. A failed attempt, the fruity notes were not great and the clash of flavors disappointing.

Aroma is nice with apricot and a touch of apple. Nice dark amber color. Taste had a muted sweetness. Finish that lingers but not harshly. Apricot, apple, and light citrus notes come through. Enjoyable gateway beer in seasonal form. Mine could have used a touch more carbonation. Possibly age related. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Apricot, blackberry, and sweet caramel. Dark Amber, thin off white head, and vey thin lacing. Medium bodies, sweet, fruity, mild sour notes, and lite spices. Ok balance, mild dry notes, mild bitterness, and watery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells like peach candy, vanilla, cotton candy, bubble gum. Deep, clear, dark ruby with a somewhat lasting, small off-white head. Sweet, peaches and cream kind of taste. Medium bodied.

ebone1988 (788) - Taylor, Michigan, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Aroma is peach juice, slight nuttiness, some malt, a bit of that yeast that is prevalent in macros. Appearance is pecan brown, light tan head. Taste is peaches and pecans, metallic, finishes with that Bud taste. Mouthfeel is light to medium body with crisp carbonation, unfortunately that corn taste is hanging around. Overall, this is actually a touch better than I expected it to be, but failed in the exact way I expected.

Not your usual winter warmer, this Shiner seasonal goes for a unique fruity and sweet dessert angle instead of the more traditional spice-centric and rich alcoholic winter style. Features sweet peachy notes and nutty pecan flavors as described, which are actually light and fresh on the palate and pleasantly balanced with some bready malt. Appearance is thoroughly clear for being a self-described wheat beer, also I'm uneasy about the caramel color added, not sure what they were going for on that aspect. But still a pleasant and enjoyable beer overall, this may be one of the few fruit-infused beers that wasn't syrupy sweet or overbearingly fruity. Well-balanced.

Pours a nice dark Amber/brown color. Tastes and smells like sweet (almost candies) peaches. There is some roasted nuttiness to the aftertaste along with the peaches.

JSigsbach (11) - Chicago, USA - JAN 1, 2016
Very well made and very nice Christmas holiday offering in Bavarian and Austrian tradition. Iíll be coming back for this one seasonally. Appearance: Direct pour Sam Adams glass at refrigerator temperature. Inviting peachy, amber, rosey caste with fosmy, fizzy semi-long lasting head. Aroma: Peachy notes come through most for me. Mouthfeel: Light but sturdy, slightly fizzy. Aftertaste: Peachy on retro olfaction with slightly bitter finish. Flavors are more balanced when it warms a bit inthe glass. Overall: Very drinkable and works well with lighter, sweeter, more complex food or desert pairing.

Lacking aroma. 12 ounce can. Light, crisp flavor but not a lot of distinctiveness. Maybe some cranberry and a little vanilla?

From a bottle into a glass. The pour has a lot of peaches, raisins, carmel nutty noyes with a clear dark ruby in appearence. With a medium body and I like for being different than other Xmas beers with a lot of spice flavors .
