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.

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.

sloshgator (527) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2012
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!

pour is dark orangish amber with tons of creamy off white head leaving a fair amount of lace. Nose has a sweet lemony base to it with a fair bit of spice underlying the lemony sweetness. Notes of tangy yeast towards the back with a soapy hop accompanying. Taste is a bit less integrated with the sweetness strong, the spice lingers in the finish with notes of rye bread in the back. There are some golden fruit notes intertwined throughout. Body is medium, soft and smooth, nice carbonation, and semi dry.

keanex (1606) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Bottled 7-26-2012.

A: The body pours slightly hazy with a dark amber hue, a towering creamy light tan head forms a nice plateau and has great retention.

S: The aroma is bready with a light rye spice and a very subtle citrus hidden way in the back.

T: Light citrus is from start to finish with a bready sweetness with a lot of complexity from the various grains. A hint of rye is the most prominent of the flavors outside of the citrus.

M: Medium body with a bready feel to it.

O: This is a decent beer with a nice complexity to it and a good balance throughout. I won’t be buying this again, but you should try it for yourself, it’s worth the $2 for a single.

Sample at Snallygaster DC event on October 13th, 2012. Another one I’ve been wanting to try, finally got to at this event. Nice amount of sweetness in the nose, earthy taste with rye. Really enjoyed and want to have again to have a better quality rating.
