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

ACHops (1083) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2012
On tap @ Urban Family. Pours a watery caramel brown. Aroma is sweet malts and just a hint of hops. Taste is rich and complex: oatmeal, toffee, dark chocolate, tangy pineapple hops, lightly roasted coffee. The rye shows itself on the back in the dry and hoppy finish. I can’t remember this much flavor from such a thin beer. I was expecting a Saison, so this was a surprising treat.

Thx! for sharing. Sampled draft @ De Molen during Borefts 2015. Day 1. Dark amber, mocha head on the sides. Nose is oily herbal hops, thick licorice, cough syrup. Taste is oily pine resin, hops, licorice, some Belgian qualities, nuts, zest, oily resin, dough. Oily leaves, malty body. Not entirely to my taste but interesting & oddly Belgian in an original way.
