UPDATED: NOV 17, 2012 Scythe & Sickle is seems to be at first sip wheat beer but has the bitter bite of an IPA as it goes down (but not over the top bitter.) Some nice hop flavors but not too complex. Slight sour quality but not to the level of a sour beer. An interesting change of pace!

Amber color rich thickly foamed head, citrus and pine notes, rye spice is evident, clean finish without lasting bitterness, carbonation is a little too strong Something mildly metallic

Bottle from BOTW. Rustic farmhouse nose, lemon, hay, a touch of funkiness, spicy yeast. Cloudy orange-brown with a tall, rocky head. Spicy yeast flavor, rich malts and grains, somewhat sweet and buttery--or oily, oranges, honey. Crisp and good. Quite complex and flavorful.

beerbaaron (931) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2014
Hazy medium orange amber. Large fluffy, creamy white head. Wheaty aroma with a little spicy grain. Medium body, smooth and creamy. Flavor is also wheaty with more spicy grain/rye than aroma, some citrus. Finishes a light rye spice, light to moderate earthy/grassy bitterness Come together really nicely.. Very enjoyable.

Beautiful, beautiful pour. Hazy amber with a huge , fluffy white head and lots of dancing bubbles. Taste is (obviously) heavy on the grains with a long finish.

atlrizzob (134) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Pours a golden amber with white head. Has aromas of barley and yeast. Flavors of banana, yeast, hops, and some earthy elements. Not bad I guess.

jeremyh70 (587) - Missouri, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Pours a hazy amber orange with a big and dense ivory head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet honey and bread crust, clove and grain. Taste is malt driven with bread crust and grain but also has some marmalade sweetness. Some clove character and floral hop flavor along with an earthiness and nice rye spiciness in the finish. Finishes semi dry and spicy. Mouthfeel is creamy with amedium body and carbonation. The grains, hops and yeast all add lavors that blend well. Drinkable and would try again.

nealblind (530) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Cloudy dark orange pour huge white head. Aroma of rye, barley, yeast, tang. Tastes strongly of malt, tannins, leaves bitter finish. Not my cup.

beerfest5 (1065) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 13, 2014
Nice golden haze poured into the tulip glass, large white head that leaves great lacing. Aroma of toast, some tropical fruit, maybe some banana from the yeast, flavor is similar with the addition of rye spice that in the beginning is a welcome addition, but by the end is cloying and gets in the way. Finish is largely typical Belgian ale with its sugars that could be better balanced.
