look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Dark brown with two fingers of tan head and few lacings. Smell is light fruitiness. Taste is sweet peachy malts with barely enough hops to support. A touch of the pecan shows up in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is clean and slick with a neutral finish. Overall a handsome beer and label. Easy drinker that would probably please the macro beer drinkers more than the craft drinkers due to low hop impact.
I enjoyed it and could detect no alcohol in the taste. Never did taste any wheat presence either.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.25

Bought a six pack and poured into a glass. Not much head. Pours a nice reddish orange and the smell is fantastic. Great "natural flavored" peach smell. But when it comes to the taste there is not much peach or pecan taste at all. Tastes like a regular semi dark beer. I'm very disappointed in the taste. Not sure how a peach/pecan inspired beer has anything to do with Christmas. I think this would better be marketed as a summer type beer with the peach thing. Anyways if you like the smell of peaches this thing delivers. If you are looking for a peach and pecan tasting beer forget this one. I'm a big fan of Shiner beer but this is disappointing.
