Signature Ommegang, always doing their due process in regards to Belgian styles. Nice carbonation, esters, rye spice notes. Sirmixsomewhat (266) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
Grains of Truth (Scythe and Sickle) is a golden brown beer that tastes spicier than it looks. It’s a little hoppy compared to a lot of other Ommegang beers, and it sits on the tongue after you swallow in a way that reminds you of ginger or something similar. It’s a decent beer that’s great for fall, but it’s pretty average compared to the rest of their lineup. echudy (151) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 6, 2015
Smells sweet with strong malt and some fruitiness. Cloudy amber brown color. Tastes like a nice hearty ale with the malt and fruitiness present. Has a nice after taste as well TH28 (451) - - DEC 4, 2015
12oz bottle. 07/2017 BB date. Appearance: Deep golden/orange with a light haze, with a large, thick white foam head.
Aroma: Belgian yeast dominates, heavy clove. Light, grainy rye malt undertones.
Taste: Light grainy malt sweetness that turns into citrus and strong clove yeast flavor. At the swallow a touch of rye appears.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with some creaminess and a moderately high carbonation.
Finish: Very dry with rye graininess and some retronasal clove yeast notes.
Overall: Interesting mesh of grainy malt with rye apparent, blended with touches of citrus and a strong clove yeast character. The three flavors all standout differently and don’t seem to intermingle, but overall still a very good beer. AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - NOV 28, 2015
The aroma is grain sacks, banana, orange peel, whole-grain bread, and a hint of clove and pepper. Lots of esters and a bit of phenols. Grains definitely lean clean and crisp. A background of caramelized sugars. Mouthfeel has moderate, elegant carbonation. The taste is lightly sweet and moderately bitter, slightly tangy too. Spices, citrus peel, some grapefruit, and hay come through. The finish leans drier -- mineraly, and a bit inky even. Orange peel and pepper linger. A smoother finish would have gone a long way, but still something I’d like to drink again.

on tap at Crafty’s Taproom in Northeast Phila - Belgiany. Nice amber color. Hoppy and Belgiany aroma. jsporrer (1026) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Translucent medium amber with a thick foamy white head. Foam dissipates quickly to a thin ring that clings to the glass, Pleasant aroma of bready yeast but not over powering. Taste has a hint of cloves and some other spices and is a bit dry. Finish is somewhat dry and harsh. OK but not as good as I had hoped for. beer-yum (1709) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 10, 2015
Grassy grain aroma in a cloudy copper pour. Impressively complex flavours with subtle hints of multiple grains. Larry_Duffman (535) - - NOV 2, 2015
I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours a cloudy copper color with a huge off-white head and lacing. The aroma is yeast, rye, pepper, and spice. The taste is a combination of breads with an emphasis on rye, pepper, and Belgian yeast. The palate is creamy with the carbonation on the back end. This was nice and flavorful. BlackBeerPG (671) - Darien, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Taste: complex,grains of rye, barley, and wheat notes. Woody and spices with a hop presence.
Grain rich nose. Mostly clear and dark amber in color.
Medium body and a big foamy head with nice ringed lace.
A solid fall harvest ale.
