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.

Pours orange with a large off-white head. Smells, simply, if barley, wheat, oats, and rye. Taste is a medley of grain flavors, sweet, spicy, and hints of bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth texture, lightly fizzy mouth-carbonation, Ommegang Scythe and Sickle Harvest Ale finishes with a touch of earthy tang.

Dorwart (2519) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Very large head of fine and dense bubbles. 2 inches plus with good carbonation. Light fruity aroma with some pears, biscuity malts, spices and yeast. Color is a brownish orange. More fruit and yeast in the flavor. Very soft malty palate, probably from the oats, spicy yeast notes and some dry grainyness. Light alcohol presence. Bit of lingerign fruit and spices at the finish. A decent brew.

Tap at Three Fires. Caramel, Belgian yeast, sweet fruity - maybe apple, vanilla and spice aroma. Amber with a small creamy off-white head, nice lacing. Caramel malt, Belgian yeast, spicy rye flavor. Medium creamy body. Very enjoyable.

Not sure I get this one. Nice color, coppery reddish. Not much head, but nice lacing. Lots of malt aroma and taste, some citrus, hops kind of laid back. Get the bready taste, not too much carbonation yet slightly refreshing. Good drinker for a Fall afternoon, but I don’t find anything special about it. Perfectly good product, though.

Poured a copper color with a small off-white head. Aroma was sweet caramel malt, some spice, plenty of rye in there. Flavor is nice rye notes with a nice caramel, malt sweetness. Good grain flavor in this one. Very refreshing - something I didn’t expect.

Very floral, spicy, yeasty. Typical belgian golden ale, slightly elevated complexity in the malt bill. Easy drinker.

Pours a orange golden color with a small bubbly head. Notes of earth, metal, rye, and ammonia. I'm not seeing this one at all.

Draft. Hazy deep gold/orange body. Frothy off-white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma highlights the yeast — clove, banana dusty cobweb. Also notes of bread, toasted grain, pepper, rye. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery turning sticky texture, soft carbonation. Leans toward sweet, but the yeast profile plays well with the biscuit and bread. Light lingering bitterness, but that’s really an afterthought.

10/29/12. 12oz bottle from Grassroots. Hazy dark golden pour, not quite amber, with a nice khaki head that cuts in half but sticks and laces plenty. There’s a really specific aroma to this that I can’t quite place... slightly creamy, nutty, malty, spicy, bready, and more... wait, I just got it... hefeweizen! There is something about this that is distinctly creamy and banana-like, just like a German hefe. There’s more of that sweet banana and cream in the flavor as well, but with a more malty aspect including spice and caramel. Tasty and interesting.
