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.

When I popped the top on this one, foam bubbled from the bottleneck like a champagne bottle. Poured murky caramel with a big foamy head-- beautiful pour. Nose is fruity ommegang yeast, banana, caramel malt. Palate is medium and creamy, just like the description. Taste is sweet caramel, a little banana, black pepper, hint of alcohol. Faintly bitter finish. Delicious.

Pours dense amber brown with massive living beer foam on top that slowly dissipates, leaving a pancake in the middle of the glass and thick mousey lacing. Aromas of bready malt and wheat, sweet and slightly spicy esters, banana and a little toffee. Taste is bright and a little spicy up front, quickly moving into banana and clove and further into a sweet malt and mild woody flavors. Finish is sweet and mildly spicy moving into a satisfying dryness on the sides of the tongue.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2013 Really good. I definitely taste the ommegang house flavor in this one, but I also think they did a good job with the grains too. Sweeter than a normal saison would run, but has a strong barnyard flavor due to all the grains. Deep honey color with ample carbonation and a head/lace that sticks around. Ommegang delivers again.

Bottle from Save On. Cloudy orange gold with beautiful fluffy head and lotsa lace. Bready grassy with some ripe fruit and spice. Mild peachy fruity sweetness with some graininess and grassy spicy mildly hoppy finish. Medium light effervescent mouthfeel. A delicate and beautiful beer.

Nice cloudy golden body and crazy big SUDS. THE AROMA reminds me of a Belgium beer ( WTF is wrongwiththespace bar when using beer buddy???) very light on the palate but it has a bit of a bite. The barley, oat, etc is very powerful in the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ben4321 (3807) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 10/8/12

Aroma: The aroma has some Belgian yeast, spice, bread, a little rye, some earth, and some herbs
Appearance: Pours a mostly clear orange color with a inch of fizzy off-white head that leaves streaky lace
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, pretty grainy, with some plus spice, fruity notes, and a slightly bitter finish
Palate: The body is medium (leaning light), it has a spicy, tingly feel to it, and a somewhat dry, spicy finish
Overall Impression: This is a pretty interesting beer with some nice complexity. As I’m listing the components that I noticed, I’m sitting here thinking about how many other components there are to this beer. I probably missed quite a few, but I pointed out the ones that were clear to me. Quite interesting, well worth trying, and the type of beer where’d you probably find something different every time you try it. I may be a bit too high on the score, but I just found myself enjoying it.

Sample at Snallygaster DC event on October 13th, 2012. Another one I’ve been wanting to try, finally got to at this event. Nice amount of sweetness in the nose, earthy taste with rye. Really enjoyed and want to have again to have a better quality rating.
