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.

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.

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.
