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.

Pours hazy orange with a huge foamy, wash-cycle white head. Yeast-forward profile with a fruity, banana, persimmon aroma and taste. Very marshmallow mouth feel. Overall, a nicely balanced Belgian, like drinking a wispy cloud.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy dark amber with a bubbly 1" off-white head, cobwebs of lace. Solid, robust aroma of grain. Taste is a marvelous combination of grains, caramel, and dry earth that become more bitter as they float smoothly through the palate to a lingering sweet and bitter finish. A truly remarkable brew - highly recommended.

BOD 7/10/14. Pours a hazy medium amber with an exceptional head, lacing and retention. Nice, but light, nose of sweet malt and Belgian yeast fruit (banana) over a light spice (clove). Almost medium bodied with a nice slick mouthfeel. Superb carbonation with a nice effervescent finish. The flavor profile is a bit complex, superbly balanced and reasonably intense. It begins with an effervescent rush of sweetness - biscuit malt and fruit - that yields to a mild bitterness. As the bitterness fades, rye flavor and its associated touch of spice come forward over a slightly phenolic note. The finish is somewhat crisp, a bit dry and the light bitterness lingers over a light sweetness with a clove phenolic note. Quite nice.

This is a super fruity beer, a golden ale Id say. Looks nice. Orange-brown. It has a touch of hops in the body but not in the finish. Its good.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy light brown with a thick white head. Aroma of light fruits, Belgian yeast, anise star and peppery spices. Flavor of dark grains, peppery light spices, light fruits, citrus, light pale malts, a touch of bitter hops and hop resins. Spicy, fruity, a touch hoppy. Id call this a hoppy Belgian. Very good. 8/4/9/4/16 (4.1/5)
Earlier Rating: 11/11/2013 Total Score: 3.4
On tap. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Aroma of clove, grainy malt, peppery spices. Flavor of buttery grains, sweet fruits, spices including clove. Kind of weird, tastes Belgiany even though its not. Not offensive, just not what I was expecting. 7/4/7/3/13 (3.4/5)
