Appearance: Clear yellow almost amber glass shows active carbonation streams that feed a thin, tight head that laces. Was hoping for a little more red-purple color to highlight the prickly pear.

Smell: Very fruity, but not much like prickly pear, more of a cranberry nose. Smells sweet, almost a Kool-Aid fruity sweet vibe, something comes across as artificial.

Taste: All the sweetness in the nose vanishes with a sour cherry pucker finish. The base is very light There is a lot of grape flavor in here as well, some apple skin, with a slightly tonic water like finish.

Mouthfeel: Light body, low carbonation leaves it a bit watery. Dry finish.

Overall: Not much prickly pear here, but I brew with prickly pear and I don't put much in either. It's more fun to say you brewed with it than it is to taste it. So, this ends up being a fruit infused, light beer that ends a bit too dry. I'm glad to see Shiner try some new things out.
