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.

Not sure how to classify this. Pours a golden orangeish. Smells grassy and grainy, with a bit of pepper to it. Taste is similar - definitely spicy, like all of their beers. Dances on the tongue. Very light, very drinkable. Good.

On tap. Served a hazy copper color with a decent head. Aroma of grain, malt, with a hint of hops. Taste of fresh grain and some malt sweetness. Nice bitterness and clean finish. Moderate body, nice blend of grain with a good earthy feel. Enjoyable beer.

This is a great and somewhat unique beer. Big head and all the grains work together to make a slightly sweet but savory beer.

damzz (332) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 30, 2015
Pours a hazy more brown than yellow with an off white head that is big bubble that lingers and leaves lacing. The nose is spicy malt. The taste is caramel malt with a layer of spice. Bitter aftertaste that lingers. Another prize from Ommegang!

Like a wonderful river dropping down from above this brew is smooth and just what we needed.

arminjewell (8582) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pour on tap, hazy orange-amber pour with white head, aroma brought notes of earth, red fruit, some spice, rye notes into a hint of lemon, touch of toasted bread, caramel into a hint of vanilla. Taste was a mix of vanilla, grass, bread into some toast, red fruit, dough, some slight rye comes through, finishing sweet and dry.

Draft at Barrel Republic. Pours hazy amber with a fizzy white head. Tastes fruity, malty, like light herb, citrus hops, and rich oat. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like citrus, fruity, malty, oats,

BadAprilia1000 (370) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Pours a very hazy dark orange/brown color with a great head retention. Aroma is hop, rye, biscuit, spice, caramel, fruit, citrus. Taste is malty, rye, biscuit, hops, spice, and caramel with less sweetness than the nose carried. Awesome beer, definitely grain-centric like they were aiming for, love the rye throughout adding spice.

iggynelix (90) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2015
On tap at Unos. Cloudy honey coloured with a thin, steady tan head. Barley and malts are prominent with Jay a light hop note. Smooth and silky mouth feel, Champagne like carbonation. Finishes with honey.

czar (5549) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2015
pours hazy if not cloudy golden orange with a very nice off-white head, good retention and lacing. spicy and peppery maltiness, chewy and salty caramel, rye pepperiness, acidulated wheat and other grains - no husks per say, some fruitiness - citrus but also strawberries, light earthy notes, herbs and spices - miscellaneous, average carbonation - healthy, light body - oily; assertive woodsy-grassy-spicy-citrusy finish. nice multigrain loaf bread with a dry caramel spread. not really my cup of tea, but again ommegang does it: it is craftfully brewed.
