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.

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.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2012 bottle. cloudy dark wheat colored body with a tall-building rocky tan head. nose is quite yeast: a mix of creamed banana and red apple along with a mish-mash of bread / grains / dough. over-carbonation and a little grainy, but otherwise it’s decent, just unexciting. very much like a dunkelweizen.

12 oz bottle, thank you Shaun. Orange pour with a slight haze and medium sized white head. Doughy banana esters with earthy manure like rye character. Bread and cereal character leads to dry wheat and caramel. Medium body with a very dry finish. I don’t think I will ever be able to get into rye that’s not in a massive stout or porter.

12 oz bottle, thank you samp01 for sharing. Pours hazy orange with a long lasting, foamy, white head and a lot of lacing. Aroma is of yeast, spices, hops, bready malt and hint of pears. Body is full and tangy. Yeast, spicy rye, herbal hops, caramel and bready malt, some fruit combine on the palate. Finish is long and spicy. Delicious, complex brew.

Draft at friendly’s ice house in san antonio, TX. THis beer is a decent one. A little too sweet/malty for me. I know the point is to enjoy the grains but this could’ve been given a stronger farmhouse yeast or a little more hops to cut the sweetness. Some nice spiec notes and a good mouthfeel. Solid brew.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 8/2/2012. Pours a hazy orange copper color with an awesome 3 finger fluffy off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a thick cap that lasts. Nice foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big lemon, orange, pear, grass, pepper, herbal, clove, biscuit, rye, nuttiness, earth, and yeast spiciness. Very nice aromas with great complexity and balance. Taste of pear, apple, lemon, biscuit, rye, herbal, floral, pepper, earth, clove, and yeast spiciness. Light bit of peppery bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruit, herbal, floral, biscuit, rye, pepper, clove, and yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Great balance and complexity of flavors; with no cloying on the finish at all. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a lightly creamy and very crisp mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Biere De Garde! Great balance and complexity of flavors; very smooth a crisp to drink. Highly enjoyable offering.

tap at Dash In - Pours hazy amber-orange with a small, lingering off-white head. The aroma is of spicy yeast and caramel. It tastes of sweet, bready, caramel malt and spicy Belgian yeast leading into a somewhat dry finish. This tasty brew has a medium body and lively carbonation. Very well done.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2012 Scythe & Sickle is seems to be at first sip wheat beer but has the bitter bite of an IPA as it goes down (but not over the top bitter.) Some nice hop flavors but not too complex. Slight sour quality but not to the level of a sour beer. An interesting change of pace!
