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.

Decent. Pours copper with a fluffy off white head. Earthy bread like aroma. Taste is full of malts and notes of yeast.

A new Ommegang beer for 3 bucks a 12 ounce? - sure, what the hell - turbid orange - large, fluffy head - very soft and earthy aroma - surprisingly sweet notes or citrus (orange, mango) - dusty yeast notes - spicy and lightly sour rye - carbonation is full in the mouth, but very soft and creamy - fairly sour flavor which is not entirely pleasant, like soured orange juice - moderate acidity - husky grain flavors - spicy, pepper finish - lingering acidity and sour yeast notes - meh.

Soft golden amber pour with a profuse creamy off white head, nicely laced. Body shows the non-barley grains, medium with a crisp carbonation and spicy finish. Somewhat muted flavor and aromatics. A light showing of isoamyl acetate and 4-vinyl-guaicol account for most (if not all) of the ester character. Soft floral notes in the aroma and the flavor almost bottoms out....

Draft at LOL WOB. Clear amber pour with a small white head. Malty and creamy with a fair amount of hop bitterness. Easy drinking and tasty.

BREWMUSKCLES (2204) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 8, 2012
nice champagne type mouthfeel with the accompanying vibrant bubbles that are amped up a bit, normal for a beer. nice coriander and banana type spice with a good lingering woody and fresh malt finish and some clove. some hop in the mix the brew is just a bit sweet and slick enough to add substance to the lightish body.

ben4321 (3823) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 10/8/12

Aroma: The aroma has some Belgian yeast, spice, bread, a little rye, some earth, and some herbs
Appearance: Pours a mostly clear orange color with a inch of fizzy off-white head that leaves streaky lace
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, pretty grainy, with some plus spice, fruity notes, and a slightly bitter finish
Palate: The body is medium (leaning light), it has a spicy, tingly feel to it, and a somewhat dry, spicy finish
Overall Impression: This is a pretty interesting beer with some nice complexity. As I’m listing the components that I noticed, I’m sitting here thinking about how many other components there are to this beer. I probably missed quite a few, but I pointed out the ones that were clear to me. Quite interesting, well worth trying, and the type of beer where’d you probably find something different every time you try it. I may be a bit too high on the score, but I just found myself enjoying it.

Bottle. Pours clear burnt orange with a large, frothy off-white head, medium-long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is spicy wheat and rye malt, earthy and herbal, grassy hops with light fruity esters of pears. Flavor is malt dominant, light hops and medium bitterness, dry grass, oat notes, and a dry finish. Medium-light body, moderate carbonation.

Dogbrick (7669) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Pours a copper-amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. The aroma consists of grainy malt, citrus and hops. Light to medium body with flavors of earthy malt, clove, wheat and fruit. The finish is sweet with a nutty and malty aftertaste. Decent all around.
