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.

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

Pours a orange golden color with a small bubbly head. Notes of earth, metal, rye, and ammonia. I'm not seeing this one at all.

Draft. Hazy deep gold/orange body. Frothy off-white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma highlights the yeast — clove, banana dusty cobweb. Also notes of bread, toasted grain, pepper, rye. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery turning sticky texture, soft carbonation. Leans toward sweet, but the yeast profile plays well with the biscuit and bread. Light lingering bitterness, but that’s really an afterthought.

10/29/12. 12oz bottle from Grassroots. Hazy dark golden pour, not quite amber, with a nice khaki head that cuts in half but sticks and laces plenty. There’s a really specific aroma to this that I can’t quite place... slightly creamy, nutty, malty, spicy, bready, and more... wait, I just got it... hefeweizen! There is something about this that is distinctly creamy and banana-like, just like a German hefe. There’s more of that sweet banana and cream in the flavor as well, but with a more malty aspect including spice and caramel. Tasty and interesting.
