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.

Has a little pine and wheat scent, with a little funk. Taste is similar to the scent, wheat with a tad bit of sour like flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 5, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a golden color with a slight hazy. Large frothy, rocky tan head. Good head retention. I can already detect a pleasant aroma coming from this. Aroma of citrus, oats, wheat and and herbal finish. The taste is citrus, soft malts, bitter herbal hop, faint nuttiness. Medium bodied. This is quite nice.

Bottle pours a amber. White head that was huge. Good amount of carb. Tastes smells of belgian yeast but sPices. There’s a little pine hops. Caramel sweet pepper bitter crispness. Good beer a bit diff then normal beers I’ve been having its a nice change. I’d buy it again

Four pack from Julios. Pours out a light golden-amber. Slightly over-carbonated. After things settled down a bit - strong fruity-yeast aromas. Flavor is distinctively of Belgian-type yeast. Good malty backbone, some spice. Lots of fruity yeast. Well balanced and not too heavy. Surprisingly refreshing.

Elwood (3009) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Serving: draft at Fire Works Leesburg. It pours a murky light brown with a sticky light tan head. The nose is subdued with slight belgian yeast notes. The flavor tadtes like a bland Belgian brown ale. Slight nuttiness, brown sugar, a touch of tartness followed by a light sweetness. Some Belgian yeast notes and a weird bitterness. Chalky finish. Not their best effort.
