Shiner Prickly Pear pours an orange color with an off white head from a brown twelve ounce bottle. The aroma is very sweet almost to the point of being cloying. The body is quite thin, the flavor is on the sweet side, but not as sweet as one would guess from the aroma. A touch fruity, but not a lot going on. This cactus flavored beer is an interesting oddity, but hardly a compelling beer.

Clear light copper pour with a foamy white one-finger head and lots of carbonation. Aroma is fruity and sweet. Very nice taste that is mostly sweet but does have a slightly tart edge. Predominant flavors are light fruit (pear or tropical?), mild malt and a touch of floral hop bitterness that fades quickly on the back end. Finishes with a touch of tartness. Its different but good and very refreshing.
