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.

Pours to a deep chestnut colored body with a super tall lasting foamy off-white head that looked like a Jolly Pumpkin Bam Biere when poured. A sexy lacing to boot. The aroma is heavy on the grains. I’d say it’s pretty wheaty with oats and Belgian yeasts like a light banana and pineapple. The flavor is very malty. The rye is first and foremost in the flavor. Some earthy spiced malts and yeasts. Subtle banana. The palate is spicy. Very creamy. I don’t know why they call this an amber ale... Unfortunately, the spicyness on the palate makes it a little harder to drink.

Big pop when uncapping the bottle. Cloudy orange-red pour with a white head. Aroma is malt, biscuit, sweetness and spicy rye. taste is sweet malt with spice in the finish. Nice lacing.

czar (4934) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2015
pours hazy if not cloudy golden orange with a very nice off-white head, good retention and lacing. spicy and peppery maltiness, chewy and salty caramel, rye pepperiness, acidulated wheat and other grains - no husks per say, some fruitiness - citrus but also strawberries, light earthy notes, herbs and spices - miscellaneous, average carbonation - healthy, light body - oily; assertive woodsy-grassy-spicy-citrusy finish. nice multigrain loaf bread with a dry caramel spread. not really my cup of tea, but again ommegang does it: it is craftfully brewed.

Bottle.

Light brown pour with red highlights, abundant fluffy tan head. Nose is grassy hops and stale beer and that dense whole-grain German bread. The flavor brings a lot of the earthy bitter-yeast Ommegang house character that I just have a hard time getting in to. Here it doesn’t blend particularly well with warm sweet malts. Notable rye spiciness. It’s not difficult to finish, but nor is it worth seeking out.

S_Side_Smitty (531) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Pours orange-brown in color with a super thick off white head. Aroma is wheat, light grains and syrup. Taste very pleasant and mild grains with a little faint astringency in the mid and not much finish. I like it, but it’s lacking in complexity. No hop bitterness to speak of - just very light malts.

On tap at the Flying Saucer Garland. Poured a clear golden amber with a white top. Taste of wheat, oats, earth, and rye. Medium carbonation, medium body. Not too shabby

HonusWagner (1638) - Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Rye really translates neatly in this one with a good bit of spiciness. Has a sort of rye saison quality like Saison Rue. Medium sweetness. Definitely "earthy" like the name would imply.
