Great peach taste, but you can't drink too many.

A: Pours a dark ruby color with a fingers worth of head that slowly fades down pretty much nothing

S: Peaches and malt stand out the most, providing a moderate sweetness and interesting fruitiness. Not much else behind that

T: Follows the nose, with the addition of some pecan notes coming through to cut sweetness and the huge peachy notes from the nose. Definitely starts with the malt and peaches out front, but the pecans come in shortly after to provide balance. Finishes with lingering peach and pecan notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: Definitely interesting and different for a winter brew and dunkelweizen, but a good iteration if you want just that. The peach and pecan certainly mark the brew, which is a good thing (for the sake of being different). Worth seeking out, which isn't easily said for any other Shiner beer

Nice winter option. Good alternative to the typical dark Winter Warmers.

Had this on draft. Fruity aroma. Smooth and very drinkable, with a hint of peach. Although this is a seasonal I could drink it in the summer.
