Pours a dark reddish brown with a frothy white head that faded fast. The smell reminds me of kool-aid, lots of fruitiness and sweetness, I started to doubt this one once I smelled it. Upon my first sip I was sad that I ordered this one, the fruitiness and sweet hit you all at once. Not much else going on except some wheat toward the end. The beer is smooth, light mouthfeel, mostly thin. Overall I would recommend against this beer, the flavor got to me only a few sips in. I will not get this one again, too many bad flavors going on here.
Serving type: on-tap

Sampling right now on 2/13/14 but had this one once before in 2012. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a brandy snifter glass.
Pours a dark reddish-amber in color with a 1+-finger off-white foamy head that settles down quickly. Some spotty lacing is seen. This is 'brewed with peaches and pecans and with natural flavor and caramel color'. Love the aroma when first opened and poured as the peaches and caramel hits the nose. Nice taste of peaches with wheat flavor with spices that goes down easy. Slight sweet aftertaste that isn't bitter. One of the better Shiner's in my opinion.

Pours a clear dark ruby amber with a well formed head that laces well. Said lacing lasts only a few minutes, however. Nose is of peach over a slight caramel. Light bodied with a thin mouthfeel. Slightly above normal carbonation level. The flavor profile is not complex. Like the nose, it is peach predominating over a light caramel. The beginning is a nice peach which effervesces into an ending that has pecan, but you have to really search for it. The finish is a lingering taste of peach that is OK, at best.
