12 oz bottle poured into a nonic.
Pours a clear ruby brown color with a finger of off white foam. Aroma is strong with a sour peach flavor. Interesting... but not really appetizing.
Strong sweet peach flavor. Almost like a peach Jolly Rancher, but the sweetness isn't cloying. I'm not really detecting any other strong flavors. This does have a decent body, and doesn't finish too dry or too sweet. This tastes a lot better than I thought it would. Actually fairly drinkable.
A must try if you like peach flavored beers. An interesting diversion, and one of the better Shiner beers that I've had.

This holiday beer is brewed with peaches and pecans, an interesting combination. Pours a clear, dark, copper color. A thick, light brown head fades to a sudsy film leaving sheets of lace. Peaches dominate aroma masking most others. The combine with the light maltiness to give a candied impression. There might be slight notes of pecan, but it's hard to tell if that's the label planting things in my head.
Carmel malts, and a definite pecan nuttiness upfront. The sweet fruitiness of the peaches appears in the center along with a bit of spiciness. The finish is mildly bitter, especially in the aftertaste, which is reminiscent of the dryness of pecan husks. Highly carbonated, medium-bodied with a pleasing husky dryness in the finish.
A little sweet overall, but definitely a flavorful and interesting beer. The odd combination of pecans and peaches in a beer really works here.

12 oz bottle poured into pint...
A: Light mahogany color with about a fingers worth of head that settles to a nice foamy ring, little lacing to speak of.
S: I like the smell strong peaches with a nutty pecan aroma.
T: First thing to hit me is a pleasant hit of caramel malt, followed quickly by a blend of peaches and pecans with a hint of clove and yeast. Nice clean finish, leaving a slight peachy aftertaste.
M: Medium bodied, carbonation is crisp and slightly dry.
D: Low ABV and interesting mix of flavors and smells... very night little beer.
Another good beer from Shiner, different and good.

Poured into a glass from a 12oz bottle.
A - The beer pours a deep amber, forming a good 1 inch head, leaving light spots of lace that slide down the glass.
S - Strong peach aroma dominates the nose. Detection of anything else is minimal.
T - Strong taste of peach up front, followed by a hint of wheat malt, and a very noticeable nutty finish in the flavor. Highly enjoyable!
M - Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and good carbonation.
D - Great flavor, low alcohol, and smooth drinkability makes this a very holiday sessionable ale. With that said, its almost impossible to view this as a dunkelweizen. I dont see many traits of a dunkelweizen in this beer, and IMO should be considered a fruit beer. Highly drinkable and delicious!!!

Had this one at The Chimes... 12 oz. bottle served with a pilsner glass.
This one surprised me... not a typical take on a Holiday beer. This was almost more of a peach-infused beer than anything else. A very dominant peach taste, but also pecans and other spices.
It wasn't bad, really. I could have gone for multiple in a session no problem, but there is always other beer to check out.
