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.

From the bottle, pours a rich amber with a thick bubbly off white head. Fruity aroma, like more of a pear cider than a Christmas beer. Taste is also fruity, mostly pear, some green apple, just a hint of holiday spice at the end. Overall smooth and light, not bad, but not what I would think of as a winter/holiday/Christmas beer.

Amazing Cranberry aroma. Smells like a good Christmas candle. Little head on a dark red body. Cranberry flavor up front with dry cereal. Great season brew!

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle, thank you Danny! Has some very odd aromas and very odd flavors. Not very good.

(draft @ Roman Bistro - Pittsburgh, PA) Copper pour with a beige head. Fruity and lightly spiced aroma. Peaches and pecans? Not too sure about that but there was a good amount of medicinal fruity notes. [11/27/15]

rjplumer (1063) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 14, 2015
Has a zesty peach and berry aroma. Deep clear amber body with only a slim head. Bright berry and peach taste. Has a some caramel malt give it some balance. Refreshing with a clean finish. Enjoying this one a lot and Ill have to pick up some more.

Foxbush (1979) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2015
12 oz bottle from Food Lion in Short Pump, VA The beer poured a clear dark amber with beige frothy head. No lacing! The aroma was sweet with apricots and caramel malts. There was a hint of spices. The beer was sweeter than I normally prefer. It is a balanced beer with a medium body and soft carbonation. This may be an excellent beer for the Christmas season.

Bottle, stupid twist top. Nose is peaches, a little medicinal but far from bad, just closeted and a little dank/musty; theres some generic berry fruitiness going on that I really like. Pours dark ruby in the glass but more bronze from the neck, short head is tan. Taste is a mix of peach and berry, oozes out some toasted nuts and recedes into Sam Adams house flavor nuttiness; the fruit still does taste artificial but thats not grating on me right now. Medium bitterness but it lasts and buttresses all above it. Full body maybe a little too full but not syrupy, and though theres sweetness coming from the peach infusion, the malt is attenuated down to nice digestibility. Works for me. [2015.12.12: 3.3]

Shiners brew is called Holiday Cheer yet fruit-focused seasonal beers tend to bring out my inner Krampus. This peachy Dunkel definitely pushes the fruit element a bit too strong for my liking. Still, I admire the effort. The peach works well with the malty wheat and barley sweetness. I dont get a lot from the pecan. The peach takes the spotlight. At least it actually tastes like fresh Texas peaches.

I dont taste much difference between this and their regular flagship brew, and thats pretty okay with me. Theyre both solid beers and this one fits in line with many holiday beers in that its safe; its not going to knock your socks off, but its not bad at all.
