COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Scythe & Sickle Harvest Ale is brewed with barley, wheat, oats and rye. Scythe and sickle is a seasonal brew that celebrates the richness of the grain harvest. Brewed with barley, wheat, oats and – in a nod to traditional upstate New York grains – rye, this fine ale is malty and creamy on the palate. The flavors of the grains and earth shine through. Enjoy the refreshment of the season and joys of fine brewing.

On draft at Tap 25. I was excited about liking this one because it was labeled as a biere de garde, my least favorite style. Oh well… It pours an orange color with an off white head. The aroma is floral and minty with some ginger/lime spice. Very interesting. The flavor is floral, spicy, minty with some light fruit and bread in the finish. Foresty spruce and spices in the finish. I thought I had finally tried a proper biere de garde. The search continues.

I’m not the greatest lover of Autumn beers, but this is delicious. Pours a dark gold with a sizable, lingering white head. Full mouthfeel. Malt, grain, grass, loves, biscuity malts, honey, toffee

Bottle pours hazy dark gold with rocky white foam. The aroma is musty myriad grains with a barn yard Belgian familiarity. The taste is smooth and slightly sweet with a slight pilsner barley flavor and delicious Belgian fruit flavor. Smooth grainy brew, a little strawberry and mixed apple white grape. Very drinkable with lasting carbonation and sweet sugary fruits and grain.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber body with a nice frothy and fluffy off-white head that slowly faded. The nose is a great mix of the specialty grains, especially the rye and oats, and the light floral hops. It’s a really pleasant earthy perfume like combination. The flavor is equally well balanced, at one moment I think the rye and earthy oat dominate and the next I think the slightly bitter and fruity hops take over. Finishes with just a minimal fruitiness and a little earthy rye. Light to medium bodied with a soft fizzy carbonation level. Nice lingering finish. Overall a really nice subtle beer that still has a lot of complexity. This is one of the better Ommegang beers I’ve had in a while.

12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass. Hazy amber color with a decent off white head. Herbal aroma, with fruity notes (dried apricots), honey and light caramel. Malty flavors, some tart fruits, lo-med bitterness, faint alcoholic notes and light spiciness. Medium bodied, lively, raw and quite interesting - but only for the first few sips.

Very aromatic: fruity, cloves, and banana. Pours a clear orange with very stable head. Malt body is sweet but tapers off to feature a typical Belgian yeast profile. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A good solid beer. Not my favorite from Ommegang but worth a taste. Drank from a growler. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
