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 a somewhat hazy, vibrant copper with a 3 finger, fluffy off white head that has great retentino and leaves good lacing. Aroma is full of rye spice, husky grain, cereal and fruity belgian yeast. Flavor is raw grain and tree fruit up front, coriander and spices, stone fruit, mineral and light citrus, spicy and grassy hops to the finish. Light to medium body with a creamy, slightly dry entry, light, blanketing and somewhat sharp carbonation and dry, slightly acidic finish. Really tasty, probably would be a belgian pale if not for the specialty grain label.

10/29/12. 12oz bottle from Grassroots. Hazy dark golden pour, not quite amber, with a nice khaki head that cuts in half but sticks and laces plenty. There’s a really specific aroma to this that I can’t quite place... slightly creamy, nutty, malty, spicy, bready, and more... wait, I just got it... hefeweizen! There is something about this that is distinctly creamy and banana-like, just like a German hefe. There’s more of that sweet banana and cream in the flavor as well, but with a more malty aspect including spice and caramel. Tasty and interesting.

jcr (2221) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Draft. Hazy deep gold/orange body. Frothy off-white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma highlights the yeast — clove, banana dusty cobweb. Also notes of bread, toasted grain, pepper, rye. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery turning sticky texture, soft carbonation. Leans toward sweet, but the yeast profile plays well with the biscuit and bread. Light lingering bitterness, but that’s really an afterthought.

Poured a copper color with a small off-white head. Aroma was sweet caramel malt, some spice, plenty of rye in there. Flavor is nice rye notes with a nice caramel, malt sweetness. Good grain flavor in this one. Very refreshing - something I didn’t expect.

Tap. Pours a cloudy orange golden color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate complex grains & rye and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy yeast sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Interesting good brew.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 10, 2012
12oz bottle: pours a clear copper orange with a spotty-lacing froth of off-white head. Has a lightly sweet, biscuity malty nose with some spicy rye character. Starts with fine carbonation and good fullness with a light caramel sweetness and toasted malts along with a touch of black pepper and herbal hops. Finishes drier and bittersweet. A pretty unique brew and goes down fairly smooth.

Pour is a cloudy amber with a large whtie head. Aroma is a nice rye malt with some citrus hops. Flavor is fruity hops with some yeast and a nice spicy rye malt toward the end. Finish is bitter with some honeydew left on the tounge. This is a well made beer as there are many things coming out the please the sences.

Bottle from spirits Lacey. Pours out a well carbonated,attractive orange/ dark amber color with a nice white head. Aroma is of lots of grains, rye, wheat, bread, spices, and some light fruity notes. Taste is of grainy bread, rye, wheat, some dry yeasty fruits, mild hop bitterness. Seems much bigger than 5% abv.
