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

Sweet caramel and rye nose with a touch of raisin. Taste is light to moderately sweet, lots of dark fruit, light cola, light chocolate and eye bread. Decent.

Bottle courtesy of BrainLair. Pours a thick brown pour with a slight orange tint. Thin tan head. Nutty toasted grain on the nose. Flavor is dry and bitter. Peppery with faint notes of chocolate and tropical fruit. Lightly tart hoppy finish.

750mL thanks to EricE. Pours a full hazed deep brune with sheen, dense, yellowish foam. Thick, sheety lacing. Nose is a bit vegetal, tomato soup, celery stalk. Taste is heavy malt cereal, moving to lemon tea and finishing very whole wheat crackery. Palate is still a bit vegetal, mildly tart, freezer burn flavors. Hmm. As it warms, some chocolate comes through with mild banana esters. Improving to near dunkelweizen. Still odd. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

callmemickey (3625) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Dark red brown body, healthy sized off-white head, a smattering of lacing. Nose is bold, with characteristic of earthy/spicy notes from the rye, some caramel and pale malts come through. A little crackery. Flavor presents a similar profile deep, earthy impression with a little fruit and cocoa. Medium bodied. Noticeable, but not overwhelming bitterness. A little prickly.

Dark coppery brown with a foamy tan head. Tart, a bit yeasty, full. Dark fruit (cherry, raisin) with a hint of roasted malt and spice.

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.

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.
