COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Six is a dark rye beer with layered flavors including chocolate, caramel, pepper, wood, cherry and tropical fruit.

The overall balance of the Six makes it easy to pair with richly prepared meats along with many harder cheeses.
Malts: organic pale, caramel, rye, black
Unmalted: rolled rye
Hops: magnum, tettnanger

cascade + upright tasting sessions - thanks to all. pours cloudy amber, almost light brown with a light beige cap, some retention. earthy piths, fruitiness - borderline acrid, maple, spices, toasted/roasted grains, dirt and light woodsy notes. prickly carbonation, light body, earthy-grassy finish. weak brew, although clearly biased by the bottling issue here.

tom10101 (5290) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2013
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by mathieuc, thanks! Slightly hazy amber with a huge frothy off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of caramel, yeast, fruity and earthy notes, some spiciness and, unfortunately, very light metallic notes (I didn’t had it as much as some of my tasting partners). Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with spices, yeast, caramel, chocolate, fruity esters and earthy notes. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Good Rye Saison! Nothing is spectacular, but the balance make this one more than acceptable.

yngwie (16507) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. A dark hazy amber beer with a small, dense, light beige head leaving some lacings. The aroma has a little roasted touch, hints of coffee and chocolate, and a generic fruity touch. Pretty similar flavor, the flavor very evident. Bitterness and a good dash of other nice things. Full body. Long finish. Starts off a bit boring, but sure picks up. Really lasting finish. Nice, not fantastic. 130811
