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.

Color is a dark brown/red with an off white head. Aroma is very light, but reminds me of candy sugar and Belgian yeast. Taste is sweet but bitter and acrid. The palate is not really smooth, with the high carbonation making this feel like higher than ABV than advertised.

Pours with a huge head which lingers. Cloudy orange amber appearance. Peppery aroma and flavor. Some Belgian notes on the tongue. Not much body.

Kind of a puzzle. Deep malts yet really carbonated. Lots of rough rye but creamy head and aromas. Awfully complex and compelling but really like a bag of grain. Belgian label, American born. This is a contradiction beer, for sure, but it has all the aggressive hallmarks of an earthy rustic American ale. For that, I commend it. As a Belgian, however, it is rough-hewn and unfinished. It lacks the special yeast that would have made this beer delicate.

Not sure how to classify this. Pours a golden orangeish. Smells grassy and grainy, with a bit of pepper to it. Taste is similar - definitely spicy, like all of their beers. Dances on the tongue. Very light, very drinkable. Good.

Decent. Pours copper with a fluffy off white head. Earthy bread like aroma. Taste is full of malts and notes of yeast.

A new Ommegang beer for 3 bucks a 12 ounce? - sure, what the hell - turbid orange - large, fluffy head - very soft and earthy aroma - surprisingly sweet notes or citrus (orange, mango) - dusty yeast notes - spicy and lightly sour rye - carbonation is full in the mouth, but very soft and creamy - fairly sour flavor which is not entirely pleasant, like soured orange juice - moderate acidity - husky grain flavors - spicy, pepper finish - lingering acidity and sour yeast notes - meh.

Soft golden amber pour with a profuse creamy off white head, nicely laced. Body shows the non-barley grains, medium with a crisp carbonation and spicy finish. Somewhat muted flavor and aromatics. A light showing of isoamyl acetate and 4-vinyl-guaicol account for most (if not all) of the ester character. Soft floral notes in the aroma and the flavor almost bottoms out....

Draft at LOL WOB. Clear amber pour with a small white head. Malty and creamy with a fair amount of hop bitterness. Easy drinking and tasty.

rougeau13 (2024) - Richmond, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Lightly hazy orange-copper with a huge cream colored head. Lacing is heavy. Aroma of bubblegum, apple, bread, and citrus. Taste is yeasty and a little sweet and fruity with hints of bready malt and spice. Medium bodied. Nice brew.
