Most wont agree but this is an amazing and refreshing winter seasonal. Only comes around once a year brewed in Texas, this beer has sweet peaches and cinnamon brewed in every batch.

WOW! I was absolutely blown away. It’s a dark wheat ale brewed with pecans and peaches...w/ malted barley and wheat. My new favorite Holiday beer!

Tasty as one would expect from Shiner. Even better on Tap. Light spice. Seasonal release.

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.

Very flavorful. A surprisingly good beer for gimmicky holiday offering. Strong peach and pecan tastes.

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

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2015 A wonderful smell like no other beer! thick head, and a very good taste. Unfortunately, it?s a little heavy and you can?t really drink more than 1...maybe 2...rated again exactly 3 years later by coincidence!(x2)

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
