Ommegang Scythe & Sickle Harvest Ale has a medium, creamy, off-white head, a brilliant, bubbly, orange appearance, and a thin lacing sheen left behind on the glass. The aroma is fruity and spicy, and the taste is of peppery rye, white bread, white bread crust, fruit, and there is a nice hop bitterness at the end. The mouthfeel is medium and prickly, and Ommegang Scythe & Sickle finishes dry, sweet, and easily drinkable. Overall, this is a most excellent beer. RJT southernolkart (55) - - JUL 18, 2013
Nice spicy ale with heavy malt flavor but the finish is a little dry for me

Dark orange/amber colored pour. Big white head that fades a little bit too quickly. Some lacing. Big aroma of malt and spice. Taste is a sweet malty flavor with some spiciness. Not bad. EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUL 7, 2013
The color of this beer is a hazy orange with a large, pillowy off-white head, and the aroma is reminiscent of toasted malts, floral hops, oats, rye, and wheat. The taste is quite sour, slightly bitter, and a touch sweet; furthermore, the palate combines a thick texture, medium body, average carbonation, and a long finish.

Appearance: clear coppery-amber pour with two fingers of dense, foamy, light beige head that slowly shrinks to a rocky surface cap; lots of carbonation; a second pour to top off was a little over-agressive, leading to some floaties. Aroma: malty and sweet, with prominent yeasty clove notes, nutmeg, a bit of burning cardboard, and some saison-like must; a hint of banana, perhaps, lends this almost a weizenbock-ish nose. Taste: grainy, with some orange marmalade, clove, a hint of cinnamon, apricots, white raisins, and star anise. Finish: sweetness, spices, and a bit of heat (rye?) last pleasantly, and there’s a surprising sour bite at the tail end to help cleanse the palate. Notes: It’s not a gulper, but it’s not a sipper either. Seems almost like a maltier, spicier version of their Rare Vos. It’s good. Darn good. I’m a sucker for beers with rye in the malt bill, and I was pleased to actually get some of that rye heat, especially in the finish.

Crystal clear orange with a huge white head. Slightly lemony and wheaty aroma. Smooth medium bodied and citric

THOUGHTS: Nice spicy Belgian. Nice break from all the pumpkin, Oktoberfest and fresh hop beers out there, but I don’t know how autumnal it is.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a slightly cloudy, light, orangey brown with a huge, off-white, head that mostly diminished, but left good lacing. The aroma was not bad, but was weak and contained mostly rye, both sour and spicy; light to moderate dark bread and grain; light nutty malts; light earthy hops; and moderate spicy yeast. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and sour, and slightly bitter and acidic; while the finish was lightly sweet and acidic, and slightly sour with an average duration. There was spicy and sour rye, spicy yeast, other grain, dark bread, and light earthy hops. The medium body was fairly dry with fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic finish. rollinsr (817) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JUN 19, 2013
Pours a hazy amber with copious amounts of tan head. Nose is very fruity with notes of banana, pineapple, and coriander. The flavor is a nice balance between the fruits and the heavier malts without overly favoring one or the other. A nice beer that would please a wide variety of beer drinkers in my opinion. joshmcg000 (388) - Iowa, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Pours hazy copper. Aroma is sweet malts. Nice grainy malt profile, sweetness, spiciness, I can definitely taste the rye. Very complex very good. hard to explain what I’m tasting, but I love it. Steve_0 (3818) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Bottle at Monk’s Kettle. Pour is hazy amber with a huge white head and great lazing - super thick. Biscuity, straw, light rye, grassy, a touch of spice, herbal, citrusy, and light peppery aroma. Taste is biscuity, fruity, straw, grassy - very easy drinking and sessionable - light pears, herbal, and tangy. Medium body with soft carbonation. Easy drinking.
