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.

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.

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 wont be buying this again, but you should try it for yourself, its worth the $2 for a single.

Sample at Snallygaster DC event on October 13th, 2012. Another one Ive 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.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy deep copper with a huge billowy head. Some of the most amazing lacing I have ever seen. Sticks in huge globs on the sides of the glass. Aroma is quite pleasant with lots of peppery spice and some citrus. A little bit of roasted character and some honey. Just the slightest amount of funk. Flavor is quite peppery up front and initially reminds me of a saison. Honey and lemony citrus are pleasant with a light to moderate barnyard funk. Toasted malt is in the background and never really becomes prominent. The yeast esters really contribute a lot to this beer and give it a lot of character. Mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy thanks to the low carbonation. Finish is a touch sticky with a little lingering pepper. Overall, a truly amazing and complex beer. I should have expected this from Ommegang but I am truly impressed. There really is a lot going on in this beer and I encourage everyone to seek it out.

This is a great beer, one of the best, from a great brewery. The rye spicyness, the tangy wheat, and the smoothness of the oats accentuate each other and are further highlighted by the citrus hops. Great. Id better get another one before they sell out.

Good....very spicy. Reminds me of the last ommegang I had, but entirely different at the same time.

12 oz. bottle. pours a thick, well retained, off white head, with extensive lacing, over a hazy, amber (SRM 10) body....nose is toffee/caramel, honey tones, cereal...taste is spicy rye, toffee/caramel, light honey tones, Grapenuts, finishing dry with a moderate bitterness....mouth feel thick and creamy, with additional creaminess from the moderate carbonation. This is a malt forward beer, with great malt complexity in both nose and taste bringing out the complexity of the four cereal grains. The hops were used with a light hand, but are present enough to balance the moderate roast of the grains. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7
