24 (!) oz bottle.
Pours deep brown-amber with unusually coarse carbonation. Head is fairly short-lived.
Aroma: fruity and floral, with some earthy/herbal hop notes.
Flavor: Unusual fuity flavor with some tartness, presumably from the fruit of the prickly pear cactus. ... think citrus/strawberry. About equally tart and bitter.
O: refreshing, unique and flavorful. Well worth trying.

This ale is crystal clear, and a beautiful burnt amber color filled with lively carbonation. The head starts off thick and bubbly and slowly thins out into a thin layer completely covering the top of the beer.
Bubblegum is the first thing I smell, in fact it smells like strawberry and peach bubblegum very artificial but it does smell good.
Sweet overall and it tastes just like it smell, like strawberry and peach bubblegum. It’s not bad but not what I expected either. It tastes nothing like prickly pear IMHO. Not bad and I do recommend trying it if you can get it for free.
Crisp and refreshing, the carbonation makes this fun to drink. It’s light bodied and goes down very smooth.
While this beer is a letdown as far as flavor is concerned I wouldn’t mind drinking after a hot day at the ranch, or any hot day for that matter.
