Shiner Holiday Cheer has a thin, creamy, khaki head and a very clear, copper appearance with a few bubbles streaming up and a little bit of lacing. The aroma is overwhelmingly of peaches, but maybe one can detect some malt and water. As it warms, some sort of husk smell shows up. The taste is of peaches, nuts, barley, water, and a little touch of hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Shiner Holiday Cheer finishes crisp, refreshing, mostly dry, and easy drinking. Overall, this is nice.

Nice amber color in appearance. The mouthfeel very exceptional, if all the wheat beers had this we would be big fans. There is a nice hint of peaches in the nose of this beer. This is very nicely noticed in the taste. The taste is very nicely balanced, giving this beer a great taste. We feel this is a nicely brewed beer. Enjoy

At the very least, this one sounds interesting. Shiner Cheer pours out a red color with a decent head. The aroma comes strong with the peaches. The taste comes really hard with the peaches too. There's a bit of nuttiness and just a tiny amount of spices on the finish, but otherwise this is a one-note peach fest. Unique enough and pretty tasty. The mouthfeel is on the light side of medium and lightly carbonated. Overall, Shiner Cheer is a solid and unique winter beer. However, stay far, far away if the idea of a primarily peach flavored beer doesn't tickle your fancy.
