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. Breezy4life (70) - - FEB 13, 2016
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.

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.

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 (1971) - 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. tapthis (272) - Baytown, Texas, USA - JAN 8, 2016
Pours a nice dark Amber/brown color. Tastes and smells like sweet (almost candies) peaches. There is some roasted nuttiness to the aftertaste along with the peaches. JSigsbach (11) - Chicago, USA - JAN 1, 2016
Very well made and very nice Christmas holiday offering in Bavarian and Austrian tradition. I’ll be coming back for this one seasonally.
Appearance: Direct pour Sam Adams glass at refrigerator temperature. Inviting peachy, amber, rosey caste with fosmy, fizzy semi-long lasting head.
Aroma: Peachy notes come through most for me.
Mouthfeel: Light but sturdy, slightly fizzy.
Aftertaste: Peachy on retro olfaction with slightly bitter finish. Flavors are more balanced when it warms a bit inthe glass.
Overall: Very drinkable and works well with lighter, sweeter, more complex food or desert pairing. weitz15 (589) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Lacking aroma. 12 ounce can. Light, crisp flavor but not a lot of distinctiveness. Maybe some cranberry and a little vanilla? Getbetter (1033) - East Palo Alto, California, USA - DEC 31, 2015
From a bottle into a glass. The pour has a lot of peaches, raisins, carmel nutty noyes with a clear dark ruby in appearence. With a medium body and I like for being different than other Xmas beers with a lot of spice flavors .
