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.

I didn’t read the description before trying this, so I don’t know what "speciality grains" are in this, but it’s a nice beer.

Draft poured into a goblet. Pours a dark orange with some dark white head. Aroma of grains, a little citrus and some spices. Taste is about the same. I really don’t get any rye whatsoever. Overall, good but not great. I would drink it again, but I wouldn’t seek it out.

On tap at Dinosaur BBQ. Pours clear darker orange with a white head. Aromas of toasted malts, caramel, bread, grassy hops, and light citrus. Flavors of grain, rye, grassy hops, little Belgian yeast and spice. Nice drinkable ale.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Sampled on draft at D’s Monroeville this beer poured a dark caramel-orange color with a medium sized foamy off white head that left good lacing. The aroma was soapy and herbs - mint, rosemary and sage. The flavor was dry and herbal with notes of rosemary, thyme and sage and touches of mint and anise. There was an undertone of grass and orange. Long dry mixed herb finish. Medium body. Disappointing.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 10, 2012
12oz bottle: pours a clear copper orange with a spotty-lacing froth of off-white head. Has a lightly sweet, biscuity malty nose with some spicy rye character. Starts with fine carbonation and good fullness with a light caramel sweetness and toasted malts along with a touch of black pepper and herbal hops. Finishes drier and bittersweet. A pretty unique brew and goes down fairly smooth.

Tmoney99 (10085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Tap. Pours a cloudy orange golden color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate complex grains & rye and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy yeast sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Interesting good brew.

mellow but nice aroma of bread, yeast, and some sweeter fruit fruit. belgian-y, which is unsurprising from ommegang. grain also, citrussy wheat and a bit of rye. dry and medium bodied, slightly sweet in front. earthy hops in the back complement well.
