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.

Sampled on 10/13/2012 at GABF. This specialty grain beer pours a light gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, estery and yeasty. A medium bodied multi-grain beer. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal. Decent carbonation. Interesting but seems a little bland. Will have to try again in a less busy setting. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Had on tap at Blind Pig in Champaign, served in a shaker pint. A: Pours a dark amber color with a foamy white head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a thin film leaving sticky sheets of lace behind. S: Light yeasty components with a touch of chalk. Some fruity esters and a little grassy hops as well. Some oaty pale malts on the nose as well. T: Pretty much like the nose with more of a dry yeast flavor and less of the malts from the nose. Same fruity esters and light grassy hops. M: Medium to light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Dry finish. O: This was OK. It was anything spectacular and pretty straight forward. Serving type: on-tap

This pours a deep ruddy orange with bright amber at the edges when held to light. There is a large off white head. The nose is grainy with some apples and notes of hay. There is also some caramel and old leather. The taste is like spiced apples consisting of cinnamon and nutmeg. Possibly a note of allspice sneaks in. The finish has some hay and a lot of wood. This is a nice interesting brew and well done.

Pours orange with a large off-white head. Smells, simply, if barley, wheat, oats, and rye. Taste is a medley of grain flavors, sweet, spicy, and hints of bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth texture, lightly fizzy mouth-carbonation, Ommegang Scythe and Sickle Harvest Ale finishes with a touch of earthy tang.

Dorwart (2372) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Very large head of fine and dense bubbles. 2 inches plus with good carbonation. Light fruity aroma with some pears, biscuity malts, spices and yeast. Color is a brownish orange. More fruit and yeast in the flavor. Very soft malty palate, probably from the oats, spicy yeast notes and some dry grainyness. Light alcohol presence. Bit of lingerign fruit and spices at the finish. A decent brew.

Tap at Three Fires. Caramel, Belgian yeast, sweet fruity - maybe apple, vanilla and spice aroma. Amber with a small creamy off-white head, nice lacing. Caramel malt, Belgian yeast, spicy rye flavor. Medium creamy body. Very enjoyable.

LeRose (73) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Not sure I get this one. Nice color, coppery reddish. Not much head, but nice lacing. Lots of malt aroma and taste, some citrus, hops kind of laid back. Get the bready taste, not too much carbonation yet slightly refreshing. Good drinker for a Fall afternoon, but I don’t find anything special about it. Perfectly good product, though.

radagast83 (4563) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Poured a copper color with a small off-white head. Aroma was sweet caramel malt, some spice, plenty of rye in there. Flavor is nice rye notes with a nice caramel, malt sweetness. Good grain flavor in this one. Very refreshing - something I didn’t expect.

Very floral, spicy, yeasty. Typical belgian golden ale, slightly elevated complexity in the malt bill. Easy drinker.
