Una mezcla muy mala en la cerveza, es como una infusin aguada y con un poco de alcohol y gas.

4.1%ABV. Lager. Poured out red. Nose is juicy, like Ribena. Mouthfeel is beery. Palate has plenty of pale malt flavor with wonderbread. Juicy flavors are not overpowering. Finishes like a pale lager. Ok overall. If you poured it over ice and put it in a starbucks to go cup with a sippy straw, itd be a Tazo Hibiscus tea, nobodyd know the difference.

Very much a grenadine smell. Almost aspartame like. Not pleasant to be honest. Dry astringency. Short aftertaste, sweet and thin. Not sure what the deal is here. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bire)

Flying monkeys 12 minutes to destiny Hibiscus pale lager 4.1% A bright Kool aid red with a light pink head that took me by surprise. Tart raspberry and hibiscus aroma. Very active carbonation on a light body that somehow evokes cookies? Dry finish, raspberry, hibiscus and cookie dough. Alright but Id prefer a smoother mouthfeel.

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 fcilmente. Carbonatacin media. Aroma a frambuesa, a tpico yogur de frambuesa, a naranja... El sabor sigue ms o menos al aroma, con una presencia ms 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 carbonatacin en boca. Muy recomendable. No tiene 5%, si no 4,1.
