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 Krusening 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.

12oz bottle, 2010 batch. Pours clear copper amber with a one finger off white head that quickly recedes to a wispy cap and ring, not much lacing at all. Aroma is a bunch of funky peaches, I can dig peaches but these are just...well...funky. A lot of pecan as well, maybe too much as it aint playing nicely with the peaches and may be what is contributing to the funk. Also a bit of caramel malt. Good strength. Flavor is also loaded with the funky peach taste, particularly on the finish, pecans, good caramel malt backbone, bready, rather sweet. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, oily becoming sticky, medium carbonation. Not my cup of tea. I know they use real peaches and pecans but cant help but feel that those may be boosted by some artificial flavorings as well. Doubt Ill make it to the end of the glass...

Single 12 ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine and More in Huntersville, North Carolina. Beer pours a nice dark copper color with a lingering light tan head. Aroma is very noticeable with peaches and a little bit of malt. Taste is very, very smooth. This beer is outstanding, I will be buying a six pack of this once I get back to the beer store

Not a fruit beer fan but this is a solid holiday seasonal Peach and malt combo works perfectly. Very surprising beer. Cheers indeed!

12 oz bottle. Pours dark reddish brown in colour. Aroma and taste have an odd hint of peach, which surprisingly works. A hint of nuttiness too. Not bad, but peaches arent usually part of my holiday world. Would be dynamite with warm peach pie!

Served in a bottle from a local grocery store in Asheville, NC. Pour is clear deep brownish red amber with a small head. Strong aroma of peaches is clearly noted. Whiffs of Pecans also evident. It has a very sweet taste and off the bat makes me feel like a kid sucking on a new jolly rancher flavor. If you buy this beer, pass it off to your girlfriend, unless she is a beer fanatic. You are better off.

12 oz bottle. A little odd. Definately notes of peaches. Touch of nuttiness in beer, touch of butter. This is pretty sweet, but I really enjoyed this one, though I can imagine only in moderation would I find any joy in this Holiday Cheer.

This poured a dark copper to almost brown color with a small white head. The aroma is nutty with some caramel and peaches. The flavor is a little weak, what do I expect from Shiner? Some caramel and peaches show through. The pecans are present but overtaken by an army of peaches. The palate is thin. Overall this isnt bad, tastes about like a Shiner Bock with some peaches thrown in. It is what it is as they say

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2012 Draft at Flying Saucer/Addison. Without reading the description first, I initially thought the aroma was of cherries. That over-the-top sweetness carried to the flavors. Obviously later I learned this to be peaches, proving that my palate is ridiculously untrained. Dont pay attention to any of my ratings! Still -- really sweet beer, perhaps with a bit thin body. Good, if youre after that. Certainly different than most holiday beers. (#4040, 12/14/2010) <<Re-calibrated rating from the bottle -- the sweetness isnt as obtuse as last year, and the peach thing comes off much more restrained than I remember. Upgraded a little.>>

Wow. This one is way too sweet. Weak palate, lots of peach - peach flavored dum dum peach- and some maltiness. Way too sweet for me but this makes a killer BBQ sauce.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2014 Aroma is strongly peaches. The taste is more weakly peach with a nutty and alcohol aspect. The fruit doesnt overpower and is mildly bitter. Overall one of the better fruit beers.
