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!

Aroma - heavy peach sweetness, nice pecan notes; Appearance - deep brown, creamy head, excellent lacing; Taste - sweet and mildly tart peach front, back is pretty balanced, finish has a long ever-increasing tartness; Palate - crisp, decent body for the style; Overall - unique yet solid winter fruit beer, well built and quite satisfying.

A beer that will pair excellent with fruitcake if you like fruitcake. Holiday Cheer pours a dark brown with a fruit scent, peaches are the most obvious. It drinks rather smooth as you get a semi-mild taste of different fruits ending in an ever so slight spice. Out of all the beers I’ve tried to date, this has to be my favorite. The only way to improve this to a 10 of 10 is by adding a slight more texture and taste to it. A beer that will pair excellent with fruitcake if you like fruitcake.

Dark ruby pour. Sweet notes apparent on the nose. Pecan taste is prevalent with a great aftertaste. Prost!

Pours a big fluffy 3 finger tan head. Body is dark brown in color with lots of bubbles rising. Head retention and lacing are above average Aroma is of tons of sweet peach. There is also some malt in there but the main scent is very fruity, almost like candy Flavor is sweet but not overly. Fruity, juicy peaches with some of the yeast flavors of a dunkelweizen. Lightly toasted malt is also there with some dry pecans at the end. Hops are pretty non existant Mouth feel is lighter than most winter seasonal. Carbonation is right in the middle. Wish head would have stayed longer Overall this is a very good beer. Definitely one of a kind. The aroma and taste of the peaches really make this beer. The pecans dont play a big role but I like it that way. Wish this beer was available all year

This beer is a Texas staple. Dark color with a relatively light feel. I would not clasify this as a fruit beer. I hate fruit beer, and the fruit flavors are secondary. The peach is definitely more noticable than the pecan, but the balance of all the flavors is an acheivment. I am amazed at the low score of this beer.
