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.

DocLock (7731) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Draft at Craft. Pours hazy dark straw toward orangy with off-white head. Nose was grainy malt, hops, mild yeasty notes. Tasted complex, with an initial big complex malty grainy flavor, then the hops and mild funk hitting at mid-palate. This one is complex and enjoyable.

12 ounce bottle. Amber orange color topped by a big rocky beige head. Bready malt nose with lots of graininess. Fragrant lemony aroma. Fruity citrus character upfront, more grains come through. Noticeable wheat and rye flavor lends a sourdough-like quality. Good balance with a dry hoppy finish. Overall, a very tasty brew and a nice effort from Ommegang.

zizzybalubba (1391) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - SEP 25, 2012
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Chesapeake, VA. Pours reddish-orange (amber, I suppose) with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of floral and grassy hops upfront that quickly fade to banana and lightly sweet malts. The flavor is not too far from a hefeweizen but offers more hops than usual. Amber ale doesn’t adequately describe it but neither does hefeweizen. At any rate this is another solid offering from Ommegang.

Jayb0 (1001) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2012
A very solid autumn seasonal. A harvest ale focused on a grain bill and not wet hops. Earthy, toasty and a bit estery. Refreshing and a little warming. A nice looking beer as well, with excellent fall color and attractive lacing.

Cybercat (3225) - Georgia, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Malty aroma is not strong, has an earthy undertone. Pours a nice bubbly orange-amber with a thick and rather persistent cream head. Flavor has malt, wheat and rye components with an earthy undertone and just a whisper of hoppy bitterness. Texture has about average body and a decent amount of tingle. Finish is earthy with hints of rye and wheat. Overall, not great, but interesting!

NikkTwist (1538) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Draft at Eulogy. Dark amber pour with a frothy white head that leaves some foamy lace. Some nice darker barley and rye flavors on top of an otherwise average wheat beer. Sort of a fauxtoberfest.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with white head. Aroma has some citrus & fruity esters, even hints of banana. Flavor has some obvious rye note and much the same as aroma with a light tang and hints of earth and toast. Mouthfeel is nice....light-medium, a bit soft/silky with fizzy carbonation. Overall, solid brew!

Amber pour, small white head. Sweet flowery hop and grain aroma. Flavor has more citrus in it than the aroma. Sharp, fresh finish.

TheBeerGod (5183) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 23, 2012

Taste is strong herbal hops, light mint, floral notes, tropical fruit, soft citrus, grains, sweet malt, soft spiciness and light caramel. Body is light-medium with a soft bubbly carbonation. Ends with more herbal hops, soft spiciness, caramel, toasted grains, light wheat, fruit notes and hints of toffee.
