Hints of cherry. Pear is a bit overwhelming for me. Just not my style but ok for what it is

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A- Fruity, gummies,
A- Amber color, clear liquid, white head.
T- Fruity, wheat, gummies, unbalanced, artificial.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, artificial fruity finish.
O- Shiner usually seems to do fairly well at unique seasonal brews. This one was not one of them. The prickly pear flavor was there but it was pretty artificial tasting and unbalanced.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shiner Prickly Pear has a medium, off-white head, a clear, slightly-bubbly appearance, and a touch of lace left on the glass. The aroma is of raspberry and background malt. Taste is of lager beer, mild hop bitterness, and sweet breadiness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Shiner Prickly Pear finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT

bottled - interesting/different. Sweet aroma and flavor. Light amber color. The flavor starts out sweet but ends slightly bitter. Interesting - not sure if I like it or not?

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz. pours clear amber with a ring of foam. Nose seems to be a mix of artificial-flavored strawberry hard candy and mildly tart lime, which I assume is the prickly pear. Unfortunately the taste is the same candy-like alcopop, with just a touch of wooden-minty hop on the finish. Not a good mix for my tastebuds. The light-medium body has too much sizzle, so combined with the candy flavor it almost seems like I put a Zotz candy in my mouth instead of a grown-up beverage. I presume that’s what the intent was anyway.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a copperish brown, no head and lacing. Strong citrus aromas. Crisp mouthfeel. Bitter fruity flavors. Tangy aftertaste, not entirely pleasant. Not a fan.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s in a mixer sixer pack. Clear, rust orange appearance with a cream colored head. The aroma is full of candy, smarties, pears, and peaches. High carbonation. Kind of sweet. Sort of tastes like peach and honey juice. Refreshing but one-sided. Not to chug and honestly, not overly sweet.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is a clear tan with a small white head. Aroma is super sweet with a big berry, maybe the prickly pear? Flavor is more of the berry sweetness with not much in the way of hops or malts. I don’t know what a prickly pear taste like but this beer has a berry flavor and not much else.
