COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Fatehunter (1178) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 20, 2012
Poured into a glass stein. Copper with almost a finger of head that did not last long. Clear but not quite transparent. Smells like a candy shop. Lots of peach and a little lemon scent. Not a normal beer smell, but it smelled nice. The peach taste is there from beginning to end. Malty at first, leading to a watery and mildly bitter end. Crisp texture, light to medium body and moderate carbonation. The body should be thicker and the watery taste spoiled it. The peach smell and flavor was worked in really well, but the rest of the beer could not hold itself up.

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.

generallee08 (506) - New York, USA - JUN 15, 2014
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. Itís 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 (4058) - 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.

DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle from Caponeís. 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 (2452) - 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.

A dark, clear, reddish amber color with an off white head. A sweet smell with a fruity and nutty taste. Fizzy.

Lightrider (299) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2014
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 (2327) - 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

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.
