Description 

This holiday dunkelweizen practically unwraps itself with hints of Texas peaches and pecans. Caramelized malts give it a uniquely rich malt body that's perfect for the holidays.

The aroma definitely highlights the peach, which is a sweet, almost overripe statement. The pecans are there, along with a touch of vanilla flavor. The beer itself is clear, reddish brown, almost ruby with a substantial slightly off-white head. The base style is a dunkelweizen, but there isn’t any real dunkelweizen character, other than the persistent head, and the darker color. Peach with a light nutty background carries through in the flavor of the beer and the touch of vanilla flavor gives this a dessert beer character. Peach aroma and flavor in abundance, nuanced by a touch of caramel pecan. Not everyone is looking for peaches in their holiday beer stocking, but for those who are, this beer works.
