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.

Looks like applejuice with a dense foam head. Smells funky kind of like still fermenting fruit. Sweet, juicy flavor with some leaves and earthy notes. Sort of like an Oktoberfest juice beer. Its pretty creamy and funky. Weird.

Ughsmash (7202) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Bottled. Poured clear, medium orange with a dense, very tall beige head.. lots of rising carbonation.. looked great! The aroma picked up banana, cloves, rye, and peppered earth over caramel and bready malts.. spicy overall and Belgian Ale-like.. very good. The flavor found a strong yeast impression (peppery notes, banana, white pepper, and slight musty earth) plus rye around a semi-sweet, mostly bready core.. finished spicy and very tasty. Medium-bodied with high carbonation on the palate.. creamy feel.. everything worked almost perfectly for me!

Pours a very festive hazy amber-orange, with a nice big off white head. Enticing, sweet aroma of wheat, banana, and rye. Taste is big on the fruity, banana sweetness, with a wheat backbone, a wee bit of smooth oat, and spicy rye on the backburners with good carbonation. Overall, a nicely balanced beer. Complex, smooth, and very refreshing; perfect for a crisp fall afternoon.

Nice harvest ale. The mixture of all of the grains really makes this a heavy and delectable affair. Thick and dark brown with woody aroma and a sweet and somewhat dry (rye) finish.

Bottle from The Hopster. Golden amber color with foamy head. Notes of clove, lemon, orange peel, coriander, hay, some piney hops. Not bad, a little inferior to Rare Vos. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orange copper pour, huge fluffy white head. Smell of sweet roasted grain (NOT corn) and light Belgian yeast. Sweet, but not overly so. Creaminess that must be from oats is followed by a finish of spicy rye and hops. Good beer that does not shove itself down your throat.

JaBier (5066) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine on 9/11/12. Clear amber to copper pour with a thick tan head. Malty nose with spicy rye notes and fruity esters. Flavor of banana and clove before a spicy rye finish.

DocLock (8080) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Draft at Craft. Pours hazy dark straw toward orangy with off-white head. Nose was grainy malt, hops, mild yeasty notes. Tasted complex, with an initial big complex malty grainy flavor, then the hops and mild funk hitting at mid-palate. This one is complex and enjoyable.

gripweed57 (793) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Amber orange color topped by a big rocky beige head. Bready malt nose with lots of graininess. Fragrant lemony aroma. Fruity citrus character upfront, more grains come through. Noticeable wheat and rye flavor lends a sourdough-like quality. Good balance with a dry hoppy finish. Overall, a very tasty brew and a nice effort from Ommegang.

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Chesapeake, VA. Pours reddish-orange (amber, I suppose) with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of floral and grassy hops upfront that quickly fade to banana and lightly sweet malts. The flavor is not too far from a hefeweizen but offers more hops than usual. Amber ale doesn’t adequately describe it but neither does hefeweizen. At any rate this is another solid offering from Ommegang.
