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!

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.

Aroma-fruit maybe plumbs. Appearance - light coffee head, mid brown coloured beer Taste-sweet and peaches. Not sure I would drink this again, but was given a bottle so thought that it was worth a try.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a medium brown with a thin short lived head. Main taste is malt and wheat with a bit of peachy. Not my favorite but it wasn’t as bad as I had expected.

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

Reid (2067) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 27, 2015
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.

julesjis (256) - Oregon, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Aroma is fruity and holiday cheer like! Flavor is sweet, slightly syrupy, has a cranberry flavor to it. I like that it is not overspiced, but it is more of a juice spritzer. Not bad overall! Fun beer!

Post holiday mark down at Belmont Station. I’d seen in a beer mag reviews of holiday brews and this was rated highly. though the reviews here at rate beer, i say after buying a can (festive coloring) not that glowing. had my first taste after some leftover apricot cobbler and the beer blended right in. color of maple syrup with moderate khaki head. aroma of caramelized brown sugar from the broiler on top of some peach halves. flavor has a bulge of buttery sweetness, but not too sweet. a litle weight in the mouth. fun beer. syrupy finish.

12oz bottle from Wegmans, Buffalo, NY. A clear reddish copper pour with a tight cream head; peachy aroma; sweet peach taste, with perhaps a hint of pecan; and then nothing much to finish. I like peach beers, so I’m OK with this, but I can see why others might dislike it.

Clear amber color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is overpowering peach. Flavor is canned peaches and bread.

12oz bottle from Xroads. Poured a syrupy looking maroonish amber with a creamy beige head. Aroma is sugary and fruity, dough, rust, and copper. Mouthfeel is meh with softer carbonation and an almost watery palate. Flavor of peaches, dry grains, nut shells. Meh I should probably drain pour this but I’ll finish it.
