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.

Amazing amber, very happy when I tried this, or is it a pale ale? The world may never know. Thank you Zeitgeist, thank you America.

brokensail (16053) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Pours a hazy orange color with a finger of white head. Interesting nose. Very spicy and fruity. Banana, citrus peel, floral hops, and lots of sweet bread. Tons of lemon peel, too. The flavor is sweet and heavy on the rye. Lots of spicy and citrus peel hops, some floral hops, and a mild bitterness. A hint of grass, very creamy mouthfeel and flavor, and some orange.

bhensonb (14075) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Bottle from Bine & Vine. Pours hazy copper with a 3 finger fizzy/creamy off-white head. Aroma (through all that head) is lightly spicy. Might be from rye. Full bodied. Foamy carbonation. The flavor is very Belgian. Definitely earthy with rye. Dry, almost astringent. Hop is decent - but whether it’s rye bitter or hop bitter? Very, very tasty.

I didn’t read the description before trying this, so I don’t know what "speciality grains" are in this, but it’s a nice beer.

Draft poured into a goblet. Pours a dark orange with some dark white head. Aroma of grains, a little citrus and some spices. Taste is about the same. I really don’t get any rye whatsoever. Overall, good but not great. I would drink it again, but I wouldn’t seek it out.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 10, 2012
12oz bottle: pours a clear copper orange with a spotty-lacing froth of off-white head. Has a lightly sweet, biscuity malty nose with some spicy rye character. Starts with fine carbonation and good fullness with a light caramel sweetness and toasted malts along with a touch of black pepper and herbal hops. Finishes drier and bittersweet. A pretty unique brew and goes down fairly smooth.
