’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!

I guess I don’t get the infatuation with mixing fruit into beer... Actually thought this was going to be your normal seasonal beer but after the first taste was really put off and wondered why. That was until I read the label and saw peaches...peaches???

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2012 listed as a dark wheat and a fruit beer - definitely not a wheat! Aroma of candied something and peaches. coppery pour. Taste was well ah different.. not bad, but very different - malty and slightly medicinal up front and peaches take over midway down - and that leaves a different (not sure how to describe) aftertaste. need to try again due to how different it is..

Bottle:   Fiery copper, moderate to thin off-white head, sparce lacing.   Holy crap, Peach oatmeal from Quaker is what I am smelling.   I can’t remember the last time I had a beer with peaches.   Maybe Black Dog Peaches & Cream?   Mealy on the tongue, picking up the peaches on the backside.   Not seeing any Dunkelweizen in this one, not really wheaty.   This much more of a fruit beer.   Average body and mouthfeel.   Not really getting any pecans either.   This is all peaches, perhaps with a little bit of a heavier malt flavor.   Not bad, a bit unexpected tho.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2015 At Brewhaus in Springfield. Not sure about this beer. It might have just not been my thing. Medicinal and sweet. A lot of peach aroma that was almost too much. Serving: Bottle

Deep red with a small, short-lived head. The aroma has very strong cranberry, with some peach, applejuice, and caramel. The flavor is close to the aroma, sweet mostly, with a touch of balancing bitterness on the finish. Thin body but doesn’t come off watery.

Peachy aroma. Ok label. Dark, clear, ruddy brown beer. Unpleasantly bitter, like aspirin or citrus pith. Moderately sweet, somewhat starchy mouthfeel. Perhaps I have consumed this too warm, but it’s just a muddy mess as far as the flavor profile goes. Market Square Liquors, Timberlane. They have it at Publix too, but you’d have to buy 6.

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.

Bottle. Here’s a beer that gets a lot right but so much more wrong. The biggest problem with this beer is the generic overall value to it and the sort of medicinal aroma/taste. Has a bit of a cranberry aroma to it, with in-general "artificial" flavoring smell. The taste has some redeeming qualities, I do think the pecans and peaches stand out and taste nice, but then comes that fake Robitussin taste rearing its ugly head. It’s like the people working at Shiner know what they’re doing but they’re trapped in a state of mediocrity. We can see you trying! We want to like you! Why does even your best efforts have such an air of sucking to it Shiner?! Someone get these guys better ingredients and for the love of god will they quit acting like third-world beer brewers! This isn’t a bad idea for a beer at all and I can only wonder what someone like Boulevard or Sierra Nevada would do with this flavor combination. Act like you give a damn, Shiner! 5.4% alcohol.

Bottle. Pours a rusty-reddish color with a thin tan head. The combination of peach, caramel, nuts and malt make for a strange aroma. Peaches and toasted nuts are the dominant flavors with hints of wheat and a sweet malt finish. Lively carbonation with a watery and somewhat dry texture. I’d call this more of a ’Southern Style’ Winter Seasonal and gave this an extra point for being unique.

PhillyBeer2112 (2876) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Appealing garnet tinted brown color with a thick creamy head. Aroma unusual, somewhat fruitcakey with candied fruit, including peach, and chocolate-orange. Flavor similar but the fruitiness is more candy-like, not sweet, but artificial. The lingering peachy aftertaste reminds me a lot of Southern Comfort, so strange. I’m not sure what element the pecans add, if any, but the combo of peach and pecan makes me think of Georgia, not Christmas, again strange. Not a thin mouthfeel but almost so, and def not the body one would expect in a holiday beer. Finish is strangely herbal-bitter and unpleasant. Do not like.
