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.

Pours a hazy, light amber with quite a bit of head. Smells awesome. Like apples and caramel and cinnamon. Very carbonated. Sweet upfront with a subtle bitterness on the way down. Well balanced and very enjoyable. Will have many more.

Slightly funky belgiany nose with some lemon citrus. Thick persistent head and lacing. Dark burnt orange and cloudy. Tangy earthy malts and dried lemon rind and peppery spice...maybe grains of paradise or white pepper. Nice and complex autumn offering. Would be awesome with any kind of squash soup or a gingery Asian dish or even some grilled salmon.

Citrusy flavor. Amber wheat color. Very balanced grains. Belgian slightly sweet/sour yeast flavor. Excellent balanced fall beer. After taste of caramelized marshmellow.

Mora2000 (5568) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2012
On tap at the Common Table. The beer pours a golden color with a white head. I get a lot of grain notes in the aroma, with a hint of yeast and some grass. The flavor is fairly dry with a lot of the husky grain notes. I also get some grass and earth from the hops as well as some spices and some yeast. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Like a crisp fall day in a bottle. A golden, delicious beer with a creamy head. The earthy notes of the grains really shine but are well balanced with a mild hop flavor.

Aurelius (4062) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2012
It’s been a while since I’ve had an Ommegang. Aroma is slightly tangy, tawny Belgian - implied oranges, slight funky bret undertones. Good label, clever name, intense cloudy bronze brew with a dense eggshell head. Smooth and creamy, the mouthfeel dominates the flavor. When you first take a swig, you’re presented with this whipped cream consistency - light, yet substantive. After that, you get some herbal hop bitterness, but it’s a bit uptight - no real floral or fruity notes to the hopping. The beer is pretty dry, rye twang, a little peach/sloe sourness. Bitter/spice. Another piece of craft brewing from Ommegang. Market Square Liquors, Timberlane.

On tap. Clear dark golden orange with a creamy white head. Sweet malty grainy aroma and taste with vanilla and caramel notes and a sweet doughy finish. Creamy medium to full bodied palate.

rbrazell (1589) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Clear amber pour with a sudsy white head that laces well. Lots of graininess in the aroma with yeast funk, spice, lemon zest, cat urine, dank hops with bits of green vegetables. Flavor is spicy yeast, grainy malts and earthy hops . Rounded palate with a bitter dry ending. Spicy enough to lend heat on the back end thinking it was alcohol. Very Saison like with a creamier palate. Not bad.

Hazy copper pour, lots of frothy off white head and striped sticky lacing..... Aroma of sweet grainy malts, light rye, wheat and fruity yeast..... Taste is of fruity yeast, spicy rye, wheat, grainy and sweet malts ... Finish is dry and spicy with a nice bitter hoppy bite ... Refreshing and good
