3.5/5 rDev -0.8%
12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Shiner's winter seasonal, here again. I had this beer sometime last year, but I don't really remember it all too well, so I'm here to revisit it.
Poured into a Houlihan's pint glass.
A - Pours four giant billowy fingers of fluffy khaki head. Body is a dark ruby-chestnut color. Looks pretty nice.
S - Smell is pretty nice and pleasant also. Fresh juicy peaches, not unlike what a Magic Hat #9 smells like. Subtle pecan nuttiness. Brown Bread. And a hint of metallics.
T - Taste follows the nose: juicy peaches, brown bread, lightly grainy, mild earthiness, and some metallic well water on the finish.
M - Feel is clean, dry, and bready. Mineral well water finish.
Overall, another fairly simple and standard brew from Spoetzl Brewery, but it's one I tend to enjoy. The addition of the Texas peaches and pecans makes this a more memorable beer than much of their year-round line up. Recommended seasonal drinking.

3.16/5 rDev -10.5%
Dark peach/amber color with a decent formed head. Lacing is okay.
Super peachy and nectary with hints of white chocolate and candi sugar. Slightly nutty yeastiness. Not much else.
Tastes like a peach beer with some bitterness. No real hop showing. Malts are candied and weak with some graininess.
Semi-boring feel with a medium wetness to the body and a medium carb.
A dunkelweizen??? I get no wheat notes and only a very mild yeastiness that MIGHT be German. Nope. Call it a fruit beer and we'll talk.
