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.

Had on tap at Blind Pig in Champaign, served in a shaker pint. A: Pours a dark amber color with a foamy white head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a thin film leaving sticky sheets of lace behind. S: Light yeasty components with a touch of chalk. Some fruity esters and a little grassy hops as well. Some oaty pale malts on the nose as well. T: Pretty much like the nose with more of a dry yeast flavor and less of the malts from the nose. Same fruity esters and light grassy hops. M: Medium to light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Dry finish. O: This was OK. It was anything spectacular and pretty straight forward. Serving type: on-tap

Bottle. Pours orange/copper, a little hazy, big frothy off white head with good retention, strong lacing. Citrus, squash, a little spicy, some sweetness on the nose. Creamy, medium malt body. Sweet potato, a little maple, lots of rye, some pine to finish.

Pint on tap. Hazy amber-copper with a ring of cream. Nose is toffee, dark bread and spicy orange. Tastes of the same nice mix with some apple butter and earthy toasted grain. Near-medium body is to the sweet side but balanced by a dry finish. Medium carbonation suits the big maltiness.

Golden orange pour with a tall soapy head. Aroma of bread, oat, spice, and barley. Bread, oat, spice flavor with some citrus. Very tasty.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a large off-white head that lasted beyond mid-glass and left ample sticky lace. Pleasant aroma of malt and bread with just a hint of Ommegang’s fruity Belgian yeast. The flavor is malt, fruity Belgian yeast, a and bit of rye spice followed by mild hops bitterness. Silky, well rounded mouthfeel. Very nice ale.

12oz bottle, definitely bottle conditioned with the huge snap opening, also the gigantic head when poured. Foamy white, takes quite a while to dissipate even after using proper pouring techniques. Brew is a hazy orange color and smells heavily spicy like a saison with some hops as well. Creamy body with a tangy carbonation mouth feel, definitely cool. Taste light and spicy, easy to drink. I’m a little disappointed as more flavor came through on tap but still a good beer just not special.

Cloudy golden orange color with high carbonation. Big cereal depth to the malt with medium rye. Assertive Belgian yeast complements well with clove. Tangy citrus finish. Tastes like a fall brew. Nicely drinkable.

"Huh...not amber in the American sense, definitely Belgian. Lots of grainy nuances in the nose and flavor. Rye stands out, as does the wheat. A mellow treat. Bubbly yet creamy

Pretty interesting, with some orange and good rye profile. Cloudy amber pour with good head and lacing. Light grainy bitter finish. Good balance and good yeast. Tap at whole foods.
