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.

malrubius (2320) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle from Meditrina. Golden orange with fizzy quickly dissipating head. Sweet marshmallow and graham cracker aroma with some herbs. Sweet toasted toffee vanilla marshmallow and peach fruitiness with herbal bitterness. Fizzy and medium body. Not sure what they hell they were trying for here. Tastes, feels, and looks like a first-timer homebrew. Texture is all off. Taste isn’t too bad, the sweetness is not unpleasant not is the herbal bitterness, but they are more than the sum of their parts. Not sure what to say--a mess but not a drain pour.

Bottle from Save On. Cloudy orange gold with beautiful fluffy head and lotsa lace. Bready grassy with some ripe fruit and spice. Mild peachy fruity sweetness with some graininess and grassy spicy mildly hoppy finish. Medium light effervescent mouthfeel. A delicate and beautiful beer.

airrick2003 (816) - Louisiana, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Appearance: this beer takes a while to pour down because the head is huge, dark beige head, the beer is a hazy darker gold to bronze color, head topples over the edge of the rim of the glass Aroma: banana, yeast, maple syrup, light spice, lemon Taste: sweet, maple sugar, butter, very tiny hop bitterness on the finish, Palate: soft carbonation, medium mouthfeel, bitter sweet aftertaste Overall: I'm not usually a fan of this sweet of a beer but I really like it, would be even better in the winter in my opinion, very nice sweet almost smoky sugar flavor, looks amazing too ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kassner (1468) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2015
This is a great and somewhat unique beer. Big head and all the grains work together to make a slightly sweet but savory beer.

damzz (402) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 30, 2015
Pours a hazy more brown than yellow with an off white head that is big bubble that lingers and leaves lacing. The nose is spicy malt. The taste is caramel malt with a layer of spice. Bitter aftertaste that lingers. Another prize from Ommegang!

arminjewell (9144) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pour on tap, hazy orange-amber pour with white head, aroma brought notes of earth, red fruit, some spice, rye notes into a hint of lemon, touch of toasted bread, caramel into a hint of vanilla. Taste was a mix of vanilla, grass, bread into some toast, red fruit, dough, some slight rye comes through, finishing sweet and dry.
