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

fidelis83 (2097) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Dark chestnut pour with a 3-4 finger, creamy yellow-beige head. Aroma is loaded with fruity stone fruit and berry notes, dry roasted nuts and spicy hops. Flavor is nutty stone fruity up front followed by husky grain, roast, dark chocolate, burnt sugar and bready notes, pine, spicy hops and sharp fruity esters to the finish. Medium body, fairly dry throughout and lightly carbonated. Pretty good overall, lots of stuff going on here, but it doesn’t really fit together that well.

Ferris (6594) - 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.

Pours hazy deep amber with three fat fingers of pillowy beige head, excellent retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is caramel malt, black pepper, dark chocolate, wood, stone fruit, horseblanket. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter, mild tart. (7/10) Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, clean finish. (4/5) Well, it’s different - and different is always good. I’ve literally never had - or even heard of - a rye saison before. I can see the rye and saison characters, but the interesting thing is, together they almost come across as a dubbel. It’s one heck of an interesting beer: sweet, deep and complex, with just a little sour funk. Hellishly difficult to pour, though! (15/20)

Barreras (1141) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Pours a deep amber color with a dark fruit aroma. Taste of rye, caramel, and a small cherry flavor. The rye taste overwhelmed this beer which made it dry and crisp. Minimal aftertaste and sweetness throughout.

DSG (7485) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[2/26/15] Draught at Upright Brewing in Portland. Nice deep amber-brown, a bit shiny, with a tan head. Aroma of fruits, spiciness, malt, a bit of licorice and spicy rye. Sweetish flavor, fruity, malty, with caramel, spice, licorice and an alcoholic note. Medium-bodied.

Caramel and toasted malts, rye, bread, barley, very wholesome beer. Nice finish. Dry, medium carbonation, some alcohol detection. Not bad.

pete4999 (1166) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle. Opaque purplish brown pour. Very nice beer. Definitely get the rye but some cherry and other fruits in it as well. Smooth, not too boozy. Just a nice beer. Would love to have it again if I could find it.

750 ml bottle at home. Pours a darkrreddish brown color with a medium plus sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have dark fruits, cherry, chocolate, spicy rye, caramel, yeast, some acidity and tartness to go with the funk.

Aurelius (4530) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Dusty, fruity aroma with light sourness. Foggy tea color, filmy head, small white sediment. Wine bottle, good label. Golden raisins, peaty malt, pointed bitterness, hops hit you in the back of the high palate. Lightish body. Warming. Peppery aftertaste. Thanks to someone at Baby Proof for sharing.

(Tap) I like this one. It has some spiciness but is still quite refreshing.

TomDecapolis (4592) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Pours a deep almost ruby amber with a smaller tab head that laced. Aroma of tart cherries, spicy rye notes and hints of dark chocolate. Flavor of toasted malt, light roast, tart cherries and rye bread.
