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.

I get a finger of sand colored head. The body is a good looking ruby brown. Head has decent retention. Decent attempt at lacing.
Peaches are named on the label, and they dominate the aroma. Faint graininess is the only other thing coming through.
Malt with bananas and peaches is the first impression I get. It gets a little wheaty after that, but the peaches just keep going.
This is light-medium bodied. It starts going down rather quickly, but the carbonation seems to create some drag when it hits the back of the tongue. Overall it's a pleasant effect, as it helps keep it around longer for the flavor.
