look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is clear garnet red in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down, leaving a few pillows of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge, and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of sweet peaches are present in the nose along with hints of pecans and spices.
T: Similar to the smell, the initial taste starts out with flavors of peaches (and associated hints of sweetness), which become mixed with flavors of toasted pecans and spices towards the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This seems to taste more like a Fruit/Vegetable Beer than a Dunkelweizen. It's an interesting Texan take on a holiday beer and is a lot easier to drink than some of the other holiday beers in the heavier styles such as winter warmers. There seemed to be a good balance between the peaches and pecans/spices because the beer wasn't overly sweet.

12oz bottle poured into a weizen glass
A: Pecan-brown colored with a one-fingered head
S: Sweet wheat, a bit nutty, definitely peachy but it doesn't quite balance out
T: Tons of sweet peach. Too sweet, though. Some malt in the background but this is more like peachy candy rather than fresh peaches
M: Don't drink this before seeing the dentist... but schedule an appointment after you do
O: On paper the peach & pecan combo should work quite well but in practice it tastes candied and the sweetness is out of balance

Pours a dark reddish amber with a thin finger head that fades quickly with a decent amount of lacing. Gives off the aroma of beets or grapes. It's very sweet to the tongue. The taste is very similar to the smell, grapy with a hint of beets and citrus. The flavor doesn't last long however and you're not left with much of an aftertaste. But it's worth a try. I would certainly recommend it to a friend.
