Its beautiful color transfers really well to a variety of beer styles, so we’re looking forward to seeing how our customers leverage all of the unique attributes of prickly pear.

Oregon Fruit Products LLC has introduced Prickly Pear Puree, a new seasonal offering for the fermentation market. Featuring a vibrant magenta hue and balanced acidity, Prickly Pear Puree enlivens a wide array of fermented and distilled beverages, from beers to kombuchas, seltzers to spirits.

Oregon Fruit Prickly Pear Puree is a vacation for the senses, perfectly balancing tangy and sweet notes with a floral and slightly vegetal aroma reminiscent of aloe. The sweet, juicy puree tastes of star fruit, aloe, strawberry and kiwi, and adds tropical brightness to smoothie or milkshake style beers, tart goses and sours, or refreshing blonds and wheat styles.

“This variety of prickly pear is ruby-red and comes freshly harvested from Mexico,” says Chris Hodge, Oregon Fruit Director of Sales for Fermentation. “Its beautiful color transfers really well to a variety of beer styles, so we’re looking forward to seeing how our customers leverage all of the unique attributes of prickly pear.”

Oregon Fruit Prickly Pear Puree is now available while supplies last in 42 lb. bag-in-box. Tips for brewing with Oregon Fruit Products’ Fruit for Fermentation are available here.
