As I love the smell of peaches and pecans together I can't help but be a little biased when it comes to this beer. I believe that Its an instant classic and doesn't disappoint. Its easily one of the best beers shiner makes and its a very good christmas/holiday/winter beer.

Wish I had read the lable a bit closer before I purchased this. Did not notice the "brewed with peaches, pecans and caramel color".I thought it was a staight bavarian dark wheat.????

Dark amber with brown and red hues. A quick and thin off white cap rises and fizzles fast.

Smells mostly of peaches. Maybe some sweet caramel.

A thin, sweet malt dominates the palate, sweet peach juice and caramel pretty much round it out. A slightly dry, bitter finish.

The feel is pretty thin and subtle, decent crisp bite.

Not a terrible flavor, the sweet peach and caramel dominates. This is not exactly what I had in mind !

Pours a beautiful dark amber brown with a one finger lively tan head that recedes quickly.
Smells amazing! Of fresh cut peaches, brown sugar, nuts, caramel, and...fresh linen?
Starts with fresh peach and strawberry, then roasted almonds, and then to a nice maltiness with some earthy hops.
Mouthfeel I slick, and moderately creamy, diggin' it.
Overall a kickass, fragrant brew, with a great flavor to match, caramel color be damned, it's still a great beer!
