Excellent holiday offering from Shiner. Made with pecans and peach, a great blend of sweet and nutty with a little touch of citrus. Very good to drink one, but all the flavors make it tough to drink more than that. The peach flavor is definitely a pretty unique one.

Appearance - Light brown with slight caramel hue to it. The wheat gives it good head retention. Filtered brew.
Smell - Light peach aroma with some of the wheat malt present as well. Slightly nutty aroma is also there.
Taste - Soft peach flavor with refreshing wheat malt. The nutty flavor is in the beginning of it and it finishes with a nice sweet peach. The hops give it a soft bitterness but are mostly there to support the malt profile.
Mouthfeel - Very refreshing and smooth carbonation with a light body.
Drinkability - Overall, I would have to say fairly good drinkability. I like combination of the pecan and peach flavor. It is a sweeter brew, but its a nice seasonal type variety.

appearance- dark caramel color, clear. light head with tight bubbles that didn't last to the end.
smell- peaches and hops right at the beginning. not so much on the pecan but still detectable later.
taste- nice warm balance between the peaches and the hops. I thought with the upfront aroma of fruit, it would be too overpowering, but it's perfect.
mouthfeel- light and crisp, not too bubbly.
drinkability- this is a great beer for any season and a nice session.

A: Very clear, and christmas red. One fingers worth of off white, creamy head.
S: Smells mostly of peaches, with a slight nutty hoppiness.
T: Taste is overwhelmingly peaches, like peach juice. The hop bite is the only thing that tastes like beer. Faint nut and spice in the background.
M: Thin, a bit sticky, and plenty of carbonation.
D: Quite drinkable due to thin body, carbonation, and flavour is not very robust.
To me, this is a once a year type beer. Its unique and a great beer to enjoy during the holidays, I would not probably drink this year round, even if it were available.

Poured into a pint sized drinking glass.
Appearance is dark amber or brown. The smell has a slight peach flavor. The taste is where the peach sticks out the most. I could not taste the pecans that are mentioned on the bottle. The mouthfeel is slightly smooth.
A very drinkable beer and much better than I expected it to be.

This beer is caramel or light coffee color..with quite a bit of carbonation. Not a whole lot of head though. Nice sticky lace..almost like a watered down syrup. I can definetely smell the peach. Very good tasting. Goes down well. You gotta have one of these.
