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.

[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a hazy, bubbly orange-copper with a huge fluffy off-white head. Some lacing. Slightly mild aroma of yeast and herbs along with light grassy hops, some spices, rye malt and grain. Flavour is also yeasty, herbal and spicy along with rye malt, grassy hops, a bit of fruit, grain and an average semi-lasting bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good.

Dark yellow (is that possible) pour from draft. White head. Apple and sweet aroma. Tastes very fruity - tropical but mostly apple. Strong tho. Enjoyable but a little sweet for my balls

Sample on tap. Mostly clear amber clear color, little off-white head. Some lace. Good crisp carbonation, dry finish. Nice lightly spicy caramel malts, good light bitter, spicy taste. Good brew

gripweed57 (632) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Amber orange color topped by a big rocky beige head. Bready malt nose with lots of graininess. Fragrant lemony aroma. Fruity citrus character upfront, more grains come through. Noticeable wheat and rye flavor lends a sourdough-like quality. Good balance with a dry hoppy finish. Overall, a very tasty brew and a nice effort from Ommegang.

Ummm... Is this different then Rare Vos. Had then one after another and they are basically the same exact beer. Light yeast spicyness with maybe a slightly more complex malt bill with added nuttyness/leafyness. Pretty average and fine.

Bottle to taster. Looks decent; orange with lots of off-white head and carbonation. Smells solid; bitter hops. Tastes like it smells with a spicy Belgian undertone that’s good on the palate. Not bad.

Dogbrick (7839) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Pours a copper-amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. The aroma consists of grainy malt, citrus and hops. Light to medium body with flavors of earthy malt, clove, wheat and fruit. The finish is sweet with a nutty and malty aftertaste. Decent all around.

Soft golden amber pour with a profuse creamy off white head, nicely laced. Body shows the non-barley grains, medium with a crisp carbonation and spicy finish. Somewhat muted flavor and aromatics. A light showing of isoamyl acetate and 4-vinyl-guaicol account for most (if not all) of the ester character. Soft floral notes in the aroma and the flavor almost bottoms out....

Kind of a puzzle. Deep malts yet really carbonated. Lots of rough rye but creamy head and aromas. Awfully complex and compelling but really like a bag of grain. Belgian label, American born. This is a contradiction beer, for sure, but it has all the aggressive hallmarks of an earthy rustic American ale. For that, I commend it. As a Belgian, however, it is rough-hewn and unfinished. It lacks the special yeast that would have made this beer delicate.
