3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark amber with a small white head, no real lacing. Aroma of fruit and malts. Taste is sweet and fruity but with a slight tartness to it. Crisp and refreshing; not bad for hot summer days.

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours light copper with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is like flower jam. Near med body. Flavor is quite floral. There’s a bit of maybe citrus tart in the finish. Rather dry. Totally weird.

On tap at Bootleggers. Pours a clear copper gold with medium creamy off white head thst lasts. The aroma is apple candy, wheat, cereal. Thin mouth, light pear, grain, wheat, metallic finish, not much going on with this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear amber body, not quite as dark as Shiner Bock. Head is 1/5th an inch and off white. Head retention was barely average and so was lacing.
First smell is definitely fruity, but more apricot than prickly pear. Sweet caramel/toffee malt is also present. No hops or alcohol detected. Funky yeast aroma fades in and out.
Taste is of sweet, slightly tart fruit. Like in the nose, I pick up more apricot flavor than prickly pear. Tastes similar to Magic Hat #9 but not as good. Malt is sweet and imparts a touch of caramel to beer. Very light tropical hops are detected, alcohol is very light.
Mouthfeel is a little heavier than most fruit beers but well carbonated. Head died pretty fast unfortunately.
Overall, this beer was interesting and unique but not really great in any facet. Fell kinda flat in taste and mouthfeel but for what its worth its a decent summer beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rosie amber color with a small fizzy head. Aroma reminds me of sweet tarts candies. Flavor is dry vegetal and lightly fruity. The finish is dry and malty. Light bodied and heavily carbonated. Reminds me more of a slightly dry wine cooler than a beer.

Tasting at Matt’s
Golden color, clean, with small head. Smell of artificial candy pear (no prickly pear). Tastes quite dry, not much flavor, not much sweetness (or not at all), and a bit less of that artificial candy thing.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light and refreshing, especially on a hot Texas day. Has very noticable fruity overtones. It screams fruit punch. I can’t comment on the color as I was drinking it from the bottle. Fruit flavors are not my favorite but this one is okay in a pinch.

Bottle. Clear gold. Pear and green apple all around. High carb. Very clean, crisp, and refreshing. Slightly tart and citrusy. Excellent summer seasonal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
