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!

Beerenberger (1555) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Aroma is extremely floral, almost candy like. Pours a clear amber with a none lasting white head and no lacing. The taste is sweet, but not over poweringly so. The flavor reminds me of a "red" snowcone. Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, while the hops help reign in the sweetness, this is not a beer I would want to drink repeatedly.

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.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear deep amber with rising bubbles, beige head cover, small swirls of lace. Taste is slightly bitter malt that shows tart sweet fruit on the swallow, and continues on into the finish where it is greeted by light malts that aren’t up to the task. Somewhat heavy in the stomach. Overall slightly bitter fruit, not actually bad, but not a keeper, either.

EithCubes (5180) - New Jersey, USA - APR 6, 2015
Bottle, stupid screw-top. Nose is a nasty lemonade/Radler mix with powdered, sugary Crystal Light, some musty hops and grass. Dark garnet pour with a soapy white head. Taste is sugary-sweet with powdery, clean medium bitterness, touch of bread/cracker but then it’s back to artificial lemonade, but at least that gives way to heavy earth (as in dry soil), which rules the drying and lightly bitter aftertaste. Touch soapy with strong medicinal character. Neither clean nor dirty, and not particularly refreshing, but a smooth medium body, oily at times, that doesn’t show alcohol and is somewhat repeatable. I admire experimentation, but this is a waste of good Citra and Golding.

Dark golden, thin head, no lace.
Chapstick like aroma and flavor. Slightly tart finish.
Glad I only bought one.

Old rating. Orangish gold. Typically crisp pale lager with just a hint of tart sweetness from the prickly pear. I have PP in my yard and have added them to a friends homebrew. Interesting addition...I didn't hurt here.

degbert (1285) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle. Pours a rather odd color -- amber with just a hint of pink. Has a high, mixed-grain, off-white head. Nose is overwhelmingly fruity-floral and candied. Tastes like an mediocre mass-produced lager with some fruity, berry-like saccharine sweetness to it; despite the description, there’s no tartness to it at all. The only way this would have noticeable acid is if Ken Kesey poured it for me. Finish is hollow-sweet and forgettable. It’s not bad, really, there’s just not much to it.

Bottle. Brassy gold, clear, with a finger-thick white head. Aroma and flavour of cough syrup. Appalling.

bagalagalaga (139) - Indiana, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Kind of like beer roulette, just reached blindly into a sampler pack and came out with about the last style I would expect - prickly pear. Just a slightly citrusy tartness in a lager, not too sweet or anything. Nice change of pace but wouldn’t really want a whole 6 pack of it.

From the 12 fl oz bottle. It pours pale yellow to light amber with a big long lasting white head. One cannot deny that there is pear on the nose. It must considering the name of the beer. But this comes across as so fruity like standing in a produce aisle of a supermarket. The body is light to medium. The taste does have plenty of fruit characteristics but at the same time it seems rather weak and low profile. I did not dislike it but it is not something I would drink regularly.
