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.

Draft. Poured a nice amber color with some foamy white head. Great balance between all of the grains with the rye adding a nice slightly peppery touch. Great malt flavors made this very enjoyable.

damzz (325) - 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 (8475) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 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.

Draft at Barrel Republic. Pours hazy amber with a fizzy white head. Tastes fruity, malty, like light herb, citrus hops, and rich oat. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like citrus, fruity, malty, oats,

BadAprilia1000 (348) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Pours a very hazy dark orange/brown color with a great head retention. Aroma is hop, rye, biscuit, spice, caramel, fruit, citrus. Taste is malty, rye, biscuit, hops, spice, and caramel with less sweetness than the nose carried. Awesome beer, definitely grain-centric like they were aiming for, love the rye throughout adding spice.

iggynelix (88) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2015
On tap at Unos. Cloudy honey coloured with a thin, steady tan head. Barley and malts are prominent with Jay a light hop note. Smooth and silky mouth feel, Champagne like carbonation. Finishes with honey.

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 (5366) - 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.

OldMrCrow (2119) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 26, 2015
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.
