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

If rye grew on trees this beer would smell like it’s mulch. Is deep amber color worthy of a resin that would contain dinosaur DNA. The rich peppery tartness is so dry and refreshing at the same time, Like a wave receding leaves you ready for another sip.

Are you kidding me? This beer is so beautiful! Wood, cherry, sour, musty. A lot of sour. Thin body. Don’t pass this one up.

Surprisingly delicious beer. Doesn’t 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. It’s the perfect blend of flavors and it’s perfectly balanced. I drank the entire bottle myself and never got bored with it. In fact, it just made me want more.

Draft in the tasting room. Very dark brown color, brown head. Aroma of Sour prunes and plums on rye bread. Taste has raisins, dates, prunes. Amazing.

D’un brun impénétrable et surmontée d’une onctueuse mousse beige, la bière dégage des parfums de toffee balayé d’une vague d’alcool fort. Des fruits secs et d’autres rouges picotent doucement les narines. Ce même caractère fruité se répète en bouche et s’allie avec le seigle pour créer un tout autre monde de saveurs plus épicées. Des notes chocolatées sont également perceptibles et la présence imposante du malt confère une rondeur imposante, mais somme toute passagère puisque la levure Saison utilisée amène une douce sécheresse en finale.

Upright est encore une de ces brasseries qui est souvent ignorée. Se spécialisant dans le style de saison, cette bière ’Six’ ne laisse pas indiffèrent. Bouteille de 75cl. De couleur brune foncée, mousse épaisse blanc-cassé. Au nez on y ressent bien ce nez caractéristique de levure française, donnant des allures de basse-cour. Le tout est suivit par une savoureuse dose de malt caramel, grains et qcq notes de chocolat. En bouche, le tout est similaire au nez, d’un côté on peut y ressentir l’aspect de style saison et le tout fini sur une très bonne note de malt caramel. Cela fond en bouche pour laisser une impression de chocolat au lait qui est complèté par un bouquet floral de houblon. Avec un niveau alcool assez bas, cette bière est facile à déguster et présente une expression enivrante du début à la fin. Un vrai régal.

This is a complex beer. Some sweetness in the aroma. Orange-brown. A bit fruity for a rye beer. Some strange grainiess from the rye. Good but odd.

Bottle fresh. Pours a beautiful ruby with a dense fully lasting head on the first glass. The aroma is incredibly distinct and well expressed rye, pepper, floured rustic bread crust, light smoke, light licorice and chocolate. The flavor has a subtle red fruit, astringency, full malty sweetness, tobacco, earthy and spicy bitterness. Feel is soft, full, alive but biting with rye and cool. This is a truly lovely beer, easily drinkable and would be great with food.

amazing aromatic qualities that translate to flavor impressions of fresh floral grass, wildflowers, stone fruit, and fresh orchard air. open fermentation all the way!

Totochtin (73) - Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2010
Pours a very dark copper brown with an explosively large pillowy sand-colored head. Aromas of spice, caramel, fruit (esp. citrus), clove, bubblegum - complex and rich. Caramel and chocolate sweetness is balanced with mildly tart fruitiness (cherry, berry, and plum) and spicy character from both hops and yeast. Medium body with slippery texture and slightly fizzy carbonation. Overall, complex, rich, and surprisingly fruity.
