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.

ben4321 (3864) - 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.

Dogbrick (8002) - 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.

Beerenberger (1428) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Floral notes and grains greet the nose. Pours a beautiful orangish copper with an aggressive, but mostly diminishing tan head and moderate lacing. Taste is, to me, hop forward - piney. There is also a hint of spice, rye, and a nice bready aftertaste. A somewhat dry finish. Medium-light bodied with appropriate carbonation. Overall, a pleasing beer.

Westmeister (1733) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Pours a orange/amber with medium frothy white head with some initial sticky lace. Smell is fruity esters, yeast, grains. Taste is fruity esters, earthy hops, yeast, grains, flowers. Did not expect such a flavor and aroma from what I thought was going to be an Oktoberfest brew . Definitely not and definitely better.

mikesaum (596) - Newark, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Pours sort of murky brown with a huge tan head that takes awhile to fade. Aroma is floral earthy hops, rye, light caramel malt. Taste is pretty damn good,a bit fruity, some pear and apple hints, spice from the rye, a nice little hop bite, the hops are earthy, and this brew has a bit of a buttery and creamy finish.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a fluffy off white head. Pale malty grains and wheat, with herbal and flowery hop notes, some light sweetness, and a light lingering bitterness. Solid stuff, very drinkable.

bigtaster (551) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 1, 2012
From bottle. Clear orange amber color with giant tan head. Nose with some floral Belgian style yeast aroma with a bit of funk, some oranges, sweet grapefruit. Light beer, sweet yeast flavor with nice light fruit undertones, medium carbonation. Very smooth beer, with a non-distinct malt flavor but all around good. Really good example of the style.
