’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.

Pours a chestnut brown that gives off a red hue when held to light with a mild tan head. The aroma is fruity and sweet. The peach flavor is immediately noticeable. Also has notes of nuts, toffee, and malt. This brew is a bit fizzy side, There is actually a constant fizz from the carbonated bubbles popping on the surface like soda. Light body. Finish is a combination peach and nuts. Not terrible yet not great I like the idea of a peach/ pecan holiday brew, but its a little too light and fizzy.

Taste is malt and wheat with a bit of peaches. 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 (2091) - 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.

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.
