COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Six is a dark rye beer with layered flavors including chocolate, caramel, pepper, wood, cherry and tropical fruit. It starts semi-dry and smooth and finishes fully dry and tart with a small bite from the hops. 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

Poured into a tulip. 5.0 A: Lightly hazed deep mahogany color. Two fingers of creamy/pillowy beige head. Retention is very good and a thick, juicy ring of lacing is left. 4.0 S: Big caramel component to start things off. Spicy earthy rye, earthy hops, and pepper follow. Toasty with berry, orange, and apple notes. A touch of cocoa powder. 3.5 T: Starts off with caramel, cocoa powder, and plenty of earthy hoppiness. Spicy earthy rye follows with toasty malts and pepper from the yeast. Orange and apple fruitiness. The berries don’t manifest in the taste. Moderate bitterness. Good flavors, but it’s a little dry for my tastes and the overall flavor intensity is on the lower end. 3.5 M: Lighter medium body. A bit too much carbonation. The carbonation is aggressive without being very spritzy. Otherwise, this has a good creaminess. 3.5 D: It’s hard to pick one between Five and Six as which one I like better. They are both tasty, but they are fully different. This has some good flavors, but is missing something in the taste. Worth a try, but probably not another buy.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours very hazy dark reddish brown color with a nice 2-3 finger fluffy khaki head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice thick foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of caramel, mango, cherry, biscuit, toffee, molasses, orange zest, pineapple, toast, and rye spiciness. Very nice and unique aromas with good balance, complexity, and strength. Taste of caramel, toast, molasses, biscuit, pepper, pineapple, chocolate, clove, earth, cherry, citrus, and rye spiciness. Light spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, molasses, cherry, chocolate, pepper, earth, toast, and rye spiciness on the finish for a bit. Great balance of flavors with nice complexity; fairly dry on the finish. High carbonation and medium body; with a fairly crisp, slick, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent rye saison! Great flavor complexity and balance; and very smooth a crisp to sip on. A very unique and enjoyable offering. Very well done.

EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Deep mahogany with quickly fading head. Aroma is a faint burst of pepper and white sage falling over a backdrop of malty chocolate. Body is on the lighter side but not watery. Flavors of caramel, fig, and a hit of citrus in the finish. Slight lingering bitterness with a bit of solventy ester in the finish, reminds me of lime rind and especially the pith. Good not great.

Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 9, 2012
On tap at Beer Authority. Pours a muddy brown with two fingers tannish head. Smell is funky barnyard. Taste is crisp, rye, funk, and hay. Good saison.

750 mL bottle shared with ahuds58. Pours a rich chestnut hue with smallish bubbly head. Lovely, if subtle, nose with notes of sourdough bread, rye, cherry and plum, light tobacco, coffee, and earthy guava. Flavor starts fruity with apricot, mango, and rich cherry, along with earthy hops and nice dark spiciness. Maybe a bit overcarbonated, but refreshing and lovely overall.

jbeatty (1196) - New York, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Bottle, 07/05/2012. Pours a muddy brown, dense beige head, effervescent bubbles. Aroma of rye bread; spicy, nutty chocolate, caramel and light, slightly tart fruitiness. Taste is mostly similar: rye grain upfront with nutty caramel, pepper, touch of red fruity tartness, and a long, dry, bitter rye finish. Full, round palate. Didn’t get any of the more funky elements some are reporting, this may be a fresher bottle? Anyways, not too bad.

madvike (3086) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Bottle - Pours murky mahogany with a huge foamy off white head. Nose is lightly spicy white pepper, light tropical fruit, and a real light breadiness. Nice and dry. Taste brings some dark rye bread in, with a bit of bitter dark chocolate, light grassy, herbal hopping, and a bit of fruity sweetness. Light and well-carbonated. Good stuff.

Pour at Scott’s saison tasting, pour out of bottle is dark reddish brown with off white head, aroma has notes of mineral water, nice rye spice, grain, caramel, toffee, some biscuit and slight dark fruits with a hint of lactic, interesting for sure. Taste is rye, grain, biscuit and toffee, some dark fruit, lactic, hints of earth and a slight mineral water, finishing fairly dry and slightly bitter.

Nice saison thats a bit heavy handed on the rye. Taste is very strong rye with nice peppery woody notes from the saison. Dry smooth finish.
