A: Reddish brown color with an off white head that sticks around nicely. Fair amount of carbonation visible.
S: Nice peach aroma. Smells like it could be sweet.
T: Initial peach juice flavor gives way to a nice nuttiness. Some dark wheaty notes linger in the aftertaste. Pretty much lives up to what you would expect being brewed with peaches and pecans.
M: Pretty light and drinkable. A little bit drying on the finish.
O: Definitely enjoyable. Delicious without being over the top.

Not really a true Dunkelweizen this year, it has pecans, peaches and um....caramel color added.
Pours to a nice buff head and clear brown color. Aroma is peachy, nutty malty and grainy. No hops detected. Flavor is bold and complex with bitter pecan, peach and sweet grain notes. Mouthfeel is medium and pleasingly sticky. A good hearty winter brew that is askew but tasty.

one of those beers i have passed over about a million times without realizing what i was missing. this is a particularly unique brew, a wheat beer that features both pecans and peaches, a refreshing and tasty rewrite of holiday beer. huge peach nose is very authentic, not real nutty, but fresh and juicy in front of medium toasted wheat malt. i really like the subtle spice flavor with the sweet peach, its like real good iced tea from the south. could maybe use a little more hops to soften the sugar, but i like how different this is. the pecans add an earthy richness which is nice with the grain, and the beer is robustly carbonated and lively on the palate. this beer deserves more credit, its one of a kind and among the very best ive had from shiner. worthy of any holiday feast, i may make this a tradition.
