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

JorisPPattyn (8277) - Ursel, - JUN 8, 2013
Huge cream-coloured head, leaving lace over unclear dark rusty-brown beer. Creamy nose, dark malts obvious (even Maillard it would seem), green leaves and markedly gassy. Bitterish-dry. Leafy flavour, and one not unlike oatmeal. Dry cocoa powder, faintly bready - oatmeal/ryebread? Feels quite spritzy, even fiery. Obviously well-carbonated. Not much body. Rustic? Lacking (a bit of) character, rather. Still, far from bad.

Sarlacc83 (1214) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Tap at the brewery. A: Cloudy mahogany color, creme head. N: Toffee, bark, toast, ample amount of nuttiness - almonds and walnuts in particular, peppercorn, and rye bread. T: Sweeter and maltier side of things; lightly bitter, hint spicy. M: Medium body, soft carbonation, no alcohol presence. O: Solid - the rye is a smart addition here and this is my favorite of the year-rounds.

On tap at Pyrus in Itaewon. Upright 6 on tap at Pyrus. 12,000 won for a smallish pour in a tulip. This Rye Saison pours a deep black with a thick creamy beige head. Served cold do a mild spicy nose. The taste is tangy tart earthy spicy rye - very smooth.

stoutnick (693) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 30, 2015
Cola brown pour. Aroma is malty madness. Flavours more down the amber ale territory (not a fave style of mine). Rye is quite minimal sadly. Overall, nice but not much farmhouse character.

emacgee (4299) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2015
Very carbonated upon opening. Not my cup of tea…. Muddy and murky dark brown with 3-4 fingers of foamy head. Does not quickly fade. Nose smells like a homebrew, muddled and rustic malt notes with some dark fruit and plum. Rye malt is really showing big in here with some oxidized and bready notes. Medium light bodied with an earthy finish.

omhper (20658) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 25, 2015
Bottled, thanks hackobock! Hazy amber, rich head. Marzipan and sugar up front. Sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Bready with notes of pepper and sugar. Low bitterness.

radagast83 (5417) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - APR 4, 2015
4oz draft at GBD. Poured a thin, semi-translucent, but still dark, almost black, perhaps like a mahogany color. Aroma was light rye, some light dark cherries, coffee notes. Some funky notes, fruity character comes through a bit. Pretty refreshing and easy to drink.

Ferris (7003) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 31, 2015
Draft - Light roast and chocolate malts. Deep jet brown with a beige head. Light roast me some chocolate notes. Some Belgian yeasty fruit notes and some soy like tartness.
