Most wont agree but this is an amazing and refreshing winter seasonal. Only comes around once a year brewed in Texas, this beer has sweet peaches and cinnamon brewed in every batch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is by far the best winter/holiday beer I’ve had so far. So many brewers try to take advantage of marketing a so-called winter brew but they all lack any original or honesty. Shiner appears to have taken the time and research to bring something worthy. My only downgrade is they describe the peach as subtle, which it’s not.

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.

A beer that will pair excellent with fruitcake if you like fruitcake. Holiday Cheer pours a dark brown with a fruit scent, peaches are the most obvious. It drinks rather smooth as you get a semi-mild taste of different fruits ending in an ever so slight spice. Out of all the beers I’ve tried to date, this has to be my favorite. The only way to improve this to a 10 of 10 is by adding a slight more texture and taste to it. A beer that will pair excellent with fruitcake if you like fruitcake.

Very flavorful. A surprisingly good beer for gimmicky holiday offering. Strong peach and pecan tastes.

Dark ruby pour. Sweet notes apparent on the nose. Pecan taste is prevalent with a great aftertaste. Prost!
