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

This one was kinda hard to rate. Good overall brew, nice amber color, nice taste. At the backend was like a citrus, though Iím really not sure, finish. I like it now but if I want more to try it again or then again it might be a favorite. Really confused on this.... :)

12oz bottle. I was pretty hyped to try this one after having Osoís rather excellent Prickly Pear Infection Groove. While this has some unique kiwi-agave tones, this pales is comparison. The base beer is sort of sweet, not really complementing the fruit so well. OK for what it is.

12oz bottle from Windsor Hy-Vee, in a Sam Smith pint glass. Aromas of ripe pear, banana and cantaloupe with an unexpected Chardonnay-like woody butteryness, some vanilla and a characteristic tangyness that definitely has me thinking prickly pears. Pours surprisingly dark, sort of a golden amber to red with a finger of foamy white head and wild effervescence clinging all over the glass and fizzing up in a torrent. Both dissipate tremendously over the course of 3-5 minutes. Rich malty caramel butteryness up front followed by ripe, sweet prickly pear-cantaloupe sweetness, with fruit and buttery vanilla lingering on the finish. An odd bird, almost like wine-meets-ale-meets-fruit beverage. Medium bodied, slick, sticky and mouthcoating. Easy enough to drink, but not quite the light refreshing summer beverage the packaging suggests. Not bad, definitely a one of a kind brew with many unexpected qualities. Have to ruminate on this one for a few more bottles. Prosit!

6 pack, slammed these bad boys right outta the bottle on a hot almost Texas summer day. Ate some prickly pear fruit while I was in Peru and didnít like it nearly as much as I do when its brewed into beer. Solid tasty beer if a little bit too sweet. Probably wouldnít buy again

Much better than previous ratings. Decent aroma of cactus. Dark Amber color. Taste was beer like...but with fruit as well as hop bitterness.

SG111 (1013) - New York, USA - APR 25, 2016
Bottled. Pours raspberry soda rosť color. Not really any head. Aroma is raspberry soda. Flavor is, wow. Not good. Itís raspberry soda, but less sweet, more bland. Iím glad it isnít sweet or cloying. But Iím not glad that itís terrible.

Bottle. Aroma is...surprise - very fruity - but good! Taste is high in rhubarb, I could probably have this exact same experience having a bite of rhubarb pie and taking a drink of any standard domestic simultaneously. Oh well, I should have known better.

Bottle, shared by me... in the library... just now.
Pours a light rust color with a medium sized head.

The aroma is almost like sherbet right away... that bit fades and there is some nice sweet fruitiness and mild hoppiness.

The flavor is reasonably sweet with a nice bitter kick for balance. Not cloying or sugary, but sweet no doubt... at times it sort of reminds me of a mango lassi... itís big on fruit flavor with some pear and berry stuff happening, itís got a nice bitey hoppiness & itís got a low to medium level of bitterness.

Yes, its sweet and sometimes it tastes like a freezy-pop, but itís halfway decent in my book.
