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.

12oz bottle served in pint glass, (substantial) yeast reserved in the bottle. The beer is mostly clear and orange amber in color. Massive off-white head; huge spicy-floral yeast aroma. Sipping through the foamy top I find aggressive carbonation and a delicious, grainy body. Oats must provide the smoothness on the palate while rye provides a grainy bite. Lots of flavor here, but not a lot of hop bitterness. Nor excessive sweetness. But the yeast has developed some really great flavors of honey and cloves here. Would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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!

I had this beer on tap at Tap and Bottle in Tucson Arizona. I introduced it to many customers who then drank the keg dry! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled. Poured clear, medium orange with a dense, very tall beige head.. lots of rising carbonation.. looked great! The aroma picked up banana, cloves, rye, and peppered earth over caramel and bready malts.. spicy overall and Belgian Ale-like.. very good. The flavor found a strong yeast impression (peppery notes, banana, white pepper, and slight musty earth) plus rye around a semi-sweet, mostly bready core.. finished spicy and very tasty. Medium-bodied with high carbonation on the palate.. creamy feel.. everything worked almost perfectly for me!

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 8/2/2012. Pours a hazy orange copper color with an awesome 3 finger fluffy off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a thick cap that lasts. Nice foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big lemon, orange, pear, grass, pepper, herbal, clove, biscuit, rye, nuttiness, earth, and yeast spiciness. Very nice aromas with great complexity and balance. Taste of pear, apple, lemon, biscuit, rye, herbal, floral, pepper, earth, clove, and yeast spiciness. Light bit of peppery bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruit, herbal, floral, biscuit, rye, pepper, clove, and yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Great balance and complexity of flavors; with no cloying on the finish at all. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a lightly creamy and very crisp mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Biere De Garde! Great balance and complexity of flavors; very smooth a crisp to drink. Highly enjoyable offering.

Bottle courtesy of Falco242. Saison aspect in the nose with some dust. Slightly hazy amber body. Thin tan head. Dry palate with a lovely saison-like finish. Remarkably full bodied for a 5.8% ABV beer, defying the laws of beer logic.

Nice. Sort of a combination of a saison and a brown ale. Maltiness in abundance, with peppery zing like a saison. B. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
