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 ounce bottle - $2.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazed, orange-amber body with a tall, near white, sea foam head.

Smell: Pop of fresh cracked cloves, then, some lesser biscuity malts given a drop or two of clover honey, razor-thin sliver of citrus, hint of banana, with some raw grains bringing up the rear.

Taste: Lightly bready, biscuity, moderately husky, grainy malts. Modest rye character overshadowed by a strong clove spice accent. Faint honeyed sweetness. Some banana fruitiness, maybe a little old, dried apricot and citrus. Dry, clove-laden finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-high carbonation.

Overall: The phenolic spiciness and husky astringency becomes a bit grating after awhile. Pass.

Week 1 tasting. Pours amber capped by a white head with good retention. Nose is clove and sweetness from belgian yeast. Taste begins with clove thats last till the aftertaste and bitterness quickly giving way to grass and malt sweetness. Complex and wonderfull. A home run.

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 (8562) - 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.
