Prickly Pear? Is it a cactus? If so this is no tequila beer!
It is sweet and sour and unique. Aroma is almost sweet. Taste is almost tart. with just a little bit of hops. It tastes good cold or at room temperature. For those that ever tried a lambic and hated it, you might like this taste! It is a three season beer (spring, summer, fall).
Shiner did a nice job on this one! Prosit!

Drank out if bottle at picnic. Light a bit sweet. Not bad but don’t necessarily want more than one.

Amazing aroma of prickly pear, fruit, and hops. Dark amber colour no real head. Sweet refreshing taste of fruit, berries and hops. Medium body with no real aftertaste.

Bottle. Several shades darker than I expected, sturdy amber. Little to no head. The sugary sweet pear aroma wafted out as soon as the cap cracked. This drinks with a slightly odd combination of candy-like sweetness and a caramel malt. It’s not disgusting, but it’s not great, either. (#5974, 5/22/2015)

Can. Pours a mostly clear light copper color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is heavily laden with pear, but a bit of tart grape coming through behind. Taste is actually fairly crisp and easy to drink, though it comes off much drier than you’d expect. Interesting.

If your preference is for sweet, light, and fruity summer beers, this is for you. A bit more like juice than beer, but its crisp and effervescence is appealing.

This is a strange beer if there ever was one. Shiner Prickly Pear is exactly as it describes. A prickly pear beer. The thing is that it tastes like an Italian soda and doesn't taste of beer at all. It's like an Italian Soda and sparkling cider had an alcoholic prickly pear baby. Is it good? Yea. It's interesting. But it's absolutely summer only and you need to know what you're getting yourself into!

Another disappointing pear cider. Pours copper with a short lasting head. Not a good choice with pizza.

I wanted this beer to be my new summer beer. The sound of a lighter beer with pear in it intrigued me. After trying it I was disapointed. The beer is good on the first sip but then gives a harsh after taste afterwards. It makes it hard to keep drinking it.

Appearance is medium white head with clear light amber. Aroma is very fruit. Taste is primarily pears and reminds me more of a cider. Overall not terrible, but too much fruitiness for me.
