Picking up the pieces and parts of ale through the Kentucky lowlands, the indigenous taste of the Bluegrass is tart, spindly-sweet and nutty- giving those early settlers reason to love the region.

West Sixth's rendition pours with a bronze tinted hazy pour, capped with a sheet of eggshell froth. Its aroma is of caramel, peanut, wood shavings and a berry-like twang. Its early taste is dryly of caramel, grapnuts cereal, toasted grain, nutty flavors and a delicate fruity tartness.

Its part-malty, part-grainy middle lays on the tongue with a steely caramel flavor that's common to most Belgian dubbel ale. The bitter and earthy heartiness of peanut skins give the ale a little of a rye-like grit just ahead of the tangy acidity of under-ripened berries and crabapple.

The tacky sweetness attaches firmly to the mouth and is slow to release despite the ale's tightly woven acidity. Its peppery bite and grain textures offer mild reprieve to finish the session, medium-bodied and semi-dry.
