’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.

Peaches & pecans? For Shiner, this is thinking outside the box on this one. It does smell and taste of peaches..has the Dunkelweizen flavor and taste. Big white head with nice lacing. Best Shiner product since the Mazan 96. Will buy more.

Pours a dark golden amber color. Aromas of peachs, malts, and bread. Flavor is wheat bread with peaches on it, way to fruity for my taste.

Pours somewhat dark with a thin head. Smells of peach, roasted nuts. Tastes slightly fruity of peach and a dash of roasted nut and some earthiness with malt. Has a slightly watery feel. Overall? Honestly it’s one of the better ’cheap beers’ from Shiner. From Shiner you’ll find good quality ’cheap beer’ that will give you a little extra without breaking the bank.

Bottle pour into shaker pint glass from Downtown Discount Beverage. Aroma is strong peaches, with brown sugar, nuts, caramel. Appearance is clear red with beautiful sparkle, 1/2 finger width off-white head with poor retention and trace lacing. Taste is strong sweet peaches with roasted, buttery nuts. Palate is medium bodied with creamy texture, lively carbonation and sweet fruity finish. Overall, a different holiday beer than the usual nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice. Evokes the holidays in a different way. Enjoyable.

BillWyce (946) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Pours clear amber color with a bit of red to it. Creamy, 2-finger bone-colored head. Pleasant aroma of peach, maybe a nutty note underneath. Body is a touch lighter than medium, and just a touch watery. Tiny bit of astringency in the finish. Caramel-sweet flavor up front, giving way to the peaches, but almost as if the fruit had been grilled. The pecans show at the back with just a bit of char at the back. Different, but nice.

voyageurmike (220) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2016
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

Emeister84 (1942) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 22, 2016
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 (1020) - Dearborn, 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.
