Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with thick white head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is strong chamomile and yeast. Thin mouth, lemon peel, floral, light dryness, decent.

Doesn’t quite range into potpourri territory but chamomille just isn’t my thing. However, 5 Stones continues to win points for originality.

Bottle from rougeau13 - Thanks!Brown, with a big loose white head. Smells flowery, caramel and citrusy. Taste is earthy, chocolate and lemon, with some iced tea notes. I liked it...

Very dark orange-amber-red-brown with a big frothy beige head. Aroma of flowers, lemon, caramel, grass, spices and fruit tea. Taste is fruity and spiced and flowery and a little bitter. Medium bodied, crisp, dry, and a little bubbly. Like fruity herbal tea. Interesting.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Bottle:   Deep dirty amber, some sediment floating about, moderate to large foamy tannish head, fairly nice lacing.   Soapy floral nose, spicy, seems a bit artificial.   At least it doesn’t seem like a strong urinal cake aroma.   Fragrant soapiness on the tongue, but not yet entering into the urinal cake territory.   Fairly full bodied.   Finishes with lots chamomille and lemon zest.   I liked this more than I thought I would.   Big Amber that is a bit artificial at times.   However, despite being really floral/soapy/zesty, it doesn’t get into that urinal cake territory.   Thanks Bill!

Bottled sample from Specks in San Antonio. Another winner on Christmas day. Loved the camomile flavour. Cant wait to try this again.

On tap at the brewery. Amber pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor are very interesting. I get some piloncillo notes up front, which I can best describe as the flavor of brown sugar without the molasses notes. There is also a good bit of floral and herbal notes. I don’t get much of the lemon. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Interesting, and definitely one to try again.

Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Aroma of sugar coated raisin empanada. Ummmm. Pours a strongly-brewed-ice-tea brown with ruby highlights and a mostly lasting ivory head with moderate lacing. The taste is herbal (chamomile), spice, sugar coated pastries with suggestions of citrus. Medium body and carbonation. Overall, a very well crafted beer with an unusual, but successful, mix of flavors. Well done, 5 Stones.

degbert (1776) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with orange highlights; the head is large-grained, high, and cinnamon-colored. Nose has pronounced lemon zest aroma as well as candied sugar and gentle spice. Sweet and herbal on the front of the tongue, with a cleansing lemony bitterness on the midpalate; finishes long and soft with the chamomile moving to the forefront. Rather like the beer equivalent of a really good herb tea; very well balanced and refreshing.
