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.

On tap. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Aroma of clove, grainy malt, peppery spices. Flavor of buttery grains, sweet fruits, spices including clove. Kind of weird, tastes Belgiany even though it’s not. Not offensive, just not what I was expecting. 7/4/7/3/13 (3.4/5)

phaleslu (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 8, 2013
12 oz. bottle from Dutch’s. Pours a little bit cloudy orange with a big off-white head that goes down somewhat quickly into a much smaller version and leaves some lace in the process. Aroma of banana, caramel, toast, wheat, oatmeal, apricot, and some lingering spicy rye. Flavor of banana, apricot, toast, candied nuts, wheat, dried grains, and a dry, spicy rye finish. Medium-bodied, with medium-high carbonation and a dry, spritzy, spicy mouthfeel. Good but not quite what I’d hoped for from their harvest ale.

Pours a hazy golden wheat with some sediment, huge head, and great lacing. Aroma is a quality balance of yeast, banana, and spicy rye. Taste is yeast, rye, biscuit, a hint of yeast sweetness, then a nice bitter counter, all with a wheat backbone throughout. I’m not big on yeasty beers, but this is by far the tastiest I’ve had. Palate is creamy and highly carbonated... maybe a slight bit too much.

12oz bottle into brandy snifter. Deep, hazy orange with thin bright white head. Carbonation appears high. Aroma earthy, spicy Belgian yeast with subtle citrus and floral hops. A touch of leather, straw and sweetness on the nose. Flavour - yeast notes strong but also mellow. Hops more pronounced in the flavour than aroma, and linger on the finish. Tangerine, pine and pepper. Carbonation high, mouthfeel thin. Pleasant but not exceptional.

12oz bottle purchased from Dawson’s market in Rockville, MD. The head is thin. Appearance is orange and hazy. Subtle pepper and apple fragrance. It is slightly sweet and crisp with high carbonation. The flavor reminds me of an apple picked off the tree in autumn.

On tap is light amber slightly cloudy with off white head. Taste is bread malts with floral hints all too subtle. Overall it is thin to my taste could use more body and alcohol.

I generally hate wheat beers, and this has a little too much wheat for my taste. There’s also spicy rye notes and Belgian yeast, which saves it, but I won’t be buying this one again.

Pours hazy amber with copious head even when careful! Nose full of fruity Belgian yeast. Taste is big, bold, Belgian yeast-fermented heaven. Fruity, thick, gentle malt, mildly floral hops. My absolutely favorite fall seasonal!
