COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This small batch brew is the third in our Limited Edition Brewer’s Pride Craft Brew Series. A combination of Citra and US Golding hops gives this refreshing lager its citrus flavor and floral aroma. The brew’s signature tartness comes from the fruit of the prickly pear, a cactus native to our brewery’s landscape that’s hearty, rugged and unmistakably unique - qualities we surely appreciate. Prosit!

Hints of cherry. Pear is a bit overwhelming for me. Just not my style but ok for what it is ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a crystal clear amber brown. Looks like a Pale Ale in the glass. Fruity berry aroma with a hint of cereal. Dry on the palate. Crisp dry ’raspberry’ flavor to it with not a hint of sweetness. Nutty malt aftertaste. Overall, it’s good and has a bit of complexity to it.

b3shine (6619) - Indiana, USA - AUG 4, 2015
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent caramelish orange with fizzy eggshell head that dissipates into thin lacing pretty quickly. Smells floral and fruity alongside what I assume are notes of cactus. Tastes like it smells, but less hoppy and balanced, with an odd, off-putting tartness. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with a filtered lager crispness. The taste ruins the nose, which isn’t great to begin with.

Too much like purple haze. Too fruity and not crisp or carbonated enough. Raspberry is overwhelming, watermelon waters the flavor down and the kiwi-kind of nose makes it sweet all around. Perhaps adding a more assertive hop or doing this in a pale ale style would make the syrupy flavor more refreshing. Too sweet and swampy.

Amber bubbly white head; sweet aroma def pear dominates; flava is grainy and malty slightly tart and subtle sweetness like fresh pear ; feels light fizzy; finishes mildly tart and crisply dry

kevinator (1392) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2015
More fruity than I imagined. Aroma of raspberry and watermelon. Light amber color and watery palate. Fruity flavors with more berry and melon. Maybe some hints of tea. OK I guess.

tmoreau (2935) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a clear, amber color, with a modest layer of off white head foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was a touch of sweetness, with notes as cherry and melon, and an odd hint that was ripe, earthy, and didn’t seem to meld well. Light bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste was as light cherry juice, with soft bitterness, a bit of tartness, and subtle dryness. Interestingly okay.

ordybill (665) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. This beer has a very unique fruit flavor that I found very enjoyable. The beer is a clear amber/copper color with a small white head. The beer is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A unique beer experience that I would recommend for anyone who is into fruit beers.

Bottle: It poured pinkish with a small white head. The aroma was fruity and the flavor was sweet pear like but the taste was tart.

Light amber pour with thin head. Fruity flavor with little aftertaste a good change of pace.
