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.

Westmeister (1788) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Draft. Pours a mostly clear deep amber. Smell is fig, other ripe fruits and caramel. Taste is sweet from the caramel with a spiceiness and more ripe fruit. Nice.

iowaherkeye (2692) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JAN 26, 2012
750mL bottle, no date from Best Damn Beer Shop, $10.99. Clear auburn brown with a one finger beige head, fading to a thick ring and sparse film before long. Tangy fruity red wine grape/cherry up front in the nose with some peppery yeast and rye, some roast and chocolate notes in the backend, but still pretty apparent. Tinge of caramel is in there as well, but only as it warmed. Flavor follows suit--quite fruity with plenty of rye and a fair amount of complementing chocolate malt and roast. Sweetness is quite restrained--sourness peaked at a 2 1/2, finish is dry. Bitterness peaked at a 3, earthy. Low carbonation with a medium body. Doesnít have the typical white pepper and fruit notes of a more traditional saison, but very tasty nonetheless--I liked it quite a bit more as I worked my way through the bottle. Rate #100!

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 24, 2012
Dark brown with a lasting off white head. The aroma has some spicy, toasty caramel, fruity yeast esters with some stone fruit, and earthy chocolate. There is some mild chocolate in the flavor as well as spice and fruity yeast. Medium bodied with a sweet finish.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 23, 2012
RBAG - Bottle, again thanks to Cydd. Pours murky tawny/green with a pinkish flash to it. 1-finger off-white head, soft lacing. Nose is tart with smoky rye, tart rhubarb, cassis; Flavours of tart rye, funky bleu cheese, some rhubarby fruit. Kinda tastes like a hibiscus Saison, what with the rhubarb and everything. Not sure Iím a huge fan of this, just kinda seems all over the place to me...

raphael (884) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Muted aromas of malt, rye, blackp epper. Woody hop-tingle in the mouth, roast malt, distant molasses--served up dry. good balance of carbonation and weight. Very well done, crisp, clean, subdued but still interesting hints,

Gription79 (2283) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 11, 2012
750 ml bottle. Lots of caramel in the nose, I did not expect that with the rye in the beer. The rye is very noticeable in the flavor, as well as a slight tartness, caramel, citrus. An interesting beer.

Aubrey (3442) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Surprisingly delicious beer. Doesnít smack you in the face with flavor or intensity, but after a few sips it seems to get deeper and more complex in a curiously subtle way. Notes of multigrain bread, yeast esters, toffee, chocolate and earthy-herbal hops weave in and out of one another seamlessly. Itís the perfect blend of flavors and itís perfectly balanced. I drank the entire bottle myself and never got bored with it. In fact, it just made me want more.

KyotoLefty (6571) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 2, 2012
750 ml bottle. Big rye nose, acid, slightly acetic, light esters, fruit. Dark brown with lace. Sour flavor with rye, caramel, nuts, vinegar. The clean, sour edge is nice, but maybe not enough malt behind it. Hoppy, bitter finish. Huge rye flavor is interesting.

reebtogi (4244) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2011
750ml bottle poured amber in color with a 2 finger off-white head that retained well but left little lacing behind. Aroma is light chocolate with some fruit and wood. Taste is light fruity and malty sweet notes with a mild hoppy bitterness with traces of woodiness. A decent beer with a medium body and soft carbonation but I was expecting much more from this one.
