’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.

I have seen this around but never tried it before. Purchased in a flight at a local emporium. It delivers a nice brown with a reddish tint and a slender light colored foam. No heavy scent but it is a bit fruity. With a taste I get some cranberry (of the season?) and a bit of maltiness. A session beer so it has no big mouth feel but does end with a medium bitterness.

Pours a dark brown, medium head that eventually dissipates. Nice roasted malt aroma and taste. A little heavy on the peaches; would be better if peaches were a bit more dialed back. A nice diversion from Shiner Bock, their flagship.

October 23rd, 2014 - Shiner Bock is a ubiquitous beer, especially if you happen to orbit near Texas, but the Shiner Cheer is rarer outside the Fall season, I think, which is a shame because it brings a little more intensity and engaged flavors to the glass. Dark brown yet clear, it looks like a filtered brown beer, but the flavor is much, much sweeter than a brown ale. It’s very heavily burned with a crystallized strawberry sugar sweetness, like the meaty center of a strawberry pop tart. The body is thin and the carbonation is low, both of which allow the candied sugar sweets of strawberry and cherry to run rampant. Despite the threat of diabetes, it’s not a cloyingly bad beer, but just one that needs to be treated with some caution.

Bottle. Pours a medium orange-brown with durable cream-colored head and some lacing. Aroma of nuts, caramel, spices. Taste is sweet with some caramel, hazelnut, subtle spices. Palate is clean, no after taste what-so-ever. Overall, this is one of my favorite seasonals this year, but I tend to like sweet heavier beers.

Draft at Kasey’s Tavern in Chicago. The aroma has funky "off" aromas. Tastes of sweet malt, caramel, rotten peaches, cooked vegetables. Nauseating.

Really I am not sure what was wrong for this beer it has a little bit of a rotten feature but still bearable

Caramel color. Thick brown head. Peach, grain, straw, and spice aromas. Starts a little bittersweet and finishes with a sweet and sour profile. Peach and malt flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Surprisingly good beer. Good stuff. Nice head, not too thick. Really like the taste. Faint cherries with a light toffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Big'z. Dark brown with a thin head. Fruity peach aroma. Malty with a bit of a citrusy finish. Just okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
