12 oz can part of a six pack from Winco mega grocer in Salem. $7.29 I have no idea how this got here..but lets try it out! Pours a very attractive darker amber with garnet hints. And a lovely smooth creamy tan head. Can get peaches right enough in the aroma. They tend to dominate. Only later do the nuts and caramel arrive. Taste is rather thinner than expected..but its nice enough..again getting lot of peach, some spicy peppery stuff and a bit of nuttiness. Fine. KInda thin mouth feel but its got nice tight carbonation..that helps. Nice fruity beer

The first time I had this beer in 2010 it was amazing. When it is bottled or canned it just doesn't taste anything like the draft version. If you can get in tap go for it. If not, just skip it.

Seasonal brew that you better get early. San Antonio favorite crisp taste and very refreshing. Many whine lovers enjoy this beer.

Can. Murky brown amber with off white head. Smell is sweet and on thick side. Taste follows. Don't really get peaches or pecans. Just sweet bordering syrupy. Have tried this twice and couldn't finish either.

Got the beer because it was on sale at my local store. Not bad but I'd never buy it for its original price. Really not worth it.

A friend from work gave me a couple of these beers. I like several Spoetzl products, but was skeptical of this one. I was pleasantly surprised at how smooth and tasty this beer was. This would be great anytime, not just the holidays.

Strong, malty aroma has a firm overtone of peach, sweet and tempting but not too sweet. Got a nutty hint, no doubt from the pecans. Pours a clear sienna with a fairly thick buff head. Peach dominates the flavor, but does not overwhelm the malty, nutty, earthy and hoppy notes - hop bitterness nicely balances the sweetness from the peaches. Texture has average body and plenty of lively fizz. Anytime is the season for good beer!
