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.

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.

Ok, this is a tough one because I love everything about the beer...but the beer. Nose starts out nicely, but the carbonation and dry palate kill any chance of soaking in the flavors. So it’s a tease...

Great copper color. Good aroma with notes of lemon, orange peel and earthy tones. Slight citrus taste with medium hops, strong wheat after taste w/ just a hint of spice to finish it off

Has a very thick, dense, white head that doesn’t dissipate at all. It’s creamy with flavors of caramel malt and spices (clove, nutmeg). Apple and apricots. The Belgian-style yeast gives it an earthy quality. The Harvest Ale description is accurate, but I think the use of so many different grains made it taste a little strange.

Xenon (84) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2013 Really good. I definitely taste the ommegang house flavor in this one, but I also think they did a good job with the grains too. Sweeter than a normal saison would run, but has a strong barnyard flavor due to all the grains. Deep honey color with ample carbonation and a head/lace that sticks around. Ommegang delivers again.

LinusStick (2860) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2013
A good beer. Different and tasty. Aroma was earthy with a slight metallic smell. Pour was a nice hazy burnt orange with a two finger off white head. Beautiful beer. Taste was very big and full for the low ABV. Spicy and malty with ginger, earth and wheat dominating. Very nice strong rye presence as well. A Belgian yeast undertone is present in the finish. All in all a very unique beer. Nice strong carbonation.

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 (6555) - 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.

Ericular (622) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 6, 2013
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.
