COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flying Monkeys 12 Minutes to Destiny is a sessionable, ruby-tinged botanical lager steeped with heaps of hibiscus flowers, rose hips, fresh raspberries, and orange peel creating a refreshingly tart brew that finishes with zesty citrus notes and classic Cascade hops.

I enjoy Flying Monkeys, but really not a fan of this one. Has the appearance of cream soda (the pink-red Canadian variety). Aroma is of tart fruit. Taste is quite shallow. A little bit of fruit in the background, but not much else. Like fruity water. Palate is light and carbonated. Sorry, really not my thing.

Rating #1854 - 2015.08.12 - Draught sample at Keg N Cork. Pours the colour of pink grapefruit soda with a white foam that bubbles away quickly. Aroma is orange zest, and hibiscus flower. Extremely floral and potent. This floral sweetness lingers into the finish and is slightly overpowering. Cool tropical, floral beer.

Color granate tirando a caoba con capa de espuma que se disipa fácilmente. Carbonatación media. Aroma a frambuesa, a típico yogur de frambuesa, a naranja... El sabor sigue más o menos al aroma, con una presencia más fuerte de la frambuesa (muy refrescante), pero lo bueno de esta cerveza es que tiene textura de Lager. No es espesa y se nota la carbonatación en boca. Muy recomendable. No tiene 5%, si no 4,1.

355ml bottle. Pours clear, and the colour of raspberry juice with a pink tinged, off-white head. On the nose fresh raspberries, hibiscus, and faint Turkish delight. Taste wise, tart with raspberry juice, a light floral note, and more Turkish delight that heads into a light maltiness with watery tart fruit notes, plum, with more raspberry and malt in the finish. This is a total surprise, and a very pleasant thirst quencher. I will most definitely be buying this again.

Pink body, lots of head. A gusher. Sweet cherry and hibiscus aroma. Taste is sweet with a tart lactose and citrus element. Not bad. Better than expected

Pours a rosé colour with a small head that fades soon. Aroma of red fruits, raspberries, vanilla. Creamy palate, taste is similar to aroma. IMO this is more a soda with some alcohol than a beer. Not my kind.

Pours a ruby red, with a pink tinged head. Aroma has notes of raspberry, strawberry, and tart fruit. Tasting notes include tart raspberries, strawberries, and has a sour finish. Very interesting, and excellent brew!!

Not what I was expecting when I got this beer but in a good way, the rasberries come in nicely in the aroma and the taste. Starts a little sour but finished tart. Interesting and tasty
