The perfect Christmas beer. The flavors of pecans and peaches are subtle and not over powering like that crap made with water from Lake Michigan. This is a truly sessionable Christmas beer. There is no need to put anything girly around the rim of the glass to kill the taste, it is great on it's own. I am drinking it right now!

Pours chestnut brown, tan head.
Smell is all peaches, no trace of any weizen. Smells like a can of peaches in syrup.
The peach taste starts things out but the finish and is the dull American wheat beer taste.
This would be much better with the more of the banana taste of a decent dunkel weizen to go along with the peach sweetness.

A - 3.75 - Great dark red/mahogany hue that is actually pretty clear. Thick film of off white bubbles on top.
S - 4.00 - Nice peach juice smell. Smells like candy. I like it.
T - 3.75 - The same peach comes out in the taste. But there's more of a malty character there too. Some bready notes. Actually some hop piney-ness there too that gives it a nice bite. Black licorice. Completely unique holiday beer.
M - 3.75 - light mouthfeel. Alc covered. Aftertaste is bready, peach.
O - 3.75 - Good beer. Unique in it's own way.

Nice chestnut color with good clarity and about 2 fingerrs of sticky brown tinged head. Smells extremely fruity on the nose with hints of dunkel components, dark fruits, just a hint of peach, some toasty malt.
Actually works out better than i thought it would. Almost like a dunkel meets a roasty toasty english brown meets a fruit beer. Sweet peach juice up front rolls into other dark fruits along the mid-palate and some weizen flare, creamy body but not too heavy, prickly carbonation. Just enough bitterness on the back end with a big roasted malt and toasted bread flavor to balance the sweetness. Toasty flavors linger on the palate. It does finish a little soapy however with what feels like a bit of alcohol heat which is strange for such a flavorful beer at a low abv. but overall it is definitely something different for the holidays. I wouldn't call it a dunkelweizen however it is a very unique take on a fruit beer that combines some other interesting traits from other styles. Something you can have a few of with a unique flavor.

A simply unique seasonal Christmas beer! Living in NE Ohio we are fortunate enough to enjoy Great Lakes Christmas Ale and Thirsty Dog's 12 Dogs of Christmas. However, Shiner Cheer from Texas has become our favorite Holiday beer surpassing all the fantastic beers we are able to enjoy in Ohio. Additionally, the branding and color permutation of the label may be the best out there. So cool and so glad this beer has arrived!
