3fourths (9350) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2012 bottle. cloudy dark wheat colored body with a tall-building rocky tan head. nose is quite yeast: a mix of creamed banana and red apple along with a mish-mash of bread / grains / dough. over-carbonation and a little grainy, but otherwise it’s decent, just unexciting. very much like a dunkelweizen. oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - OCT 17, 2012
12 oz bottle, thank you Shaun. Orange pour with a slight haze and medium sized white head. Doughy banana esters with earthy manure like rye character. Bread and cereal character leads to dry wheat and caramel. Medium body with a very dry finish. I don’t think I will ever be able to get into rye that’s not in a massive stout or porter. mike67 (1216) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 17, 2012
12 oz bottle, thank you samp01 for sharing. Pours hazy orange with a long lasting, foamy, white head and a lot of lacing. Aroma is of yeast, spices, hops, bready malt and hint of pears. Body is full and tangy. Yeast, spicy rye, herbal hops, caramel and bready malt, some fruit combine on the palate. Finish is long and spicy. Delicious, complex brew. 3sheets2wind (78) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Draft at friendly’s ice house in san antonio, TX. THis beer is a decent one. A little too sweet/malty for me. I know the point is to enjoy the grains but this could’ve been given a stronger farmhouse yeast or a little more hops to cut the sweetness. Some nice spiec notes and a good mouthfeel. Solid brew. patrick767 (4063) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 16, 2012
tap at Dash In - Pours hazy amber-orange with a small, lingering off-white head. The aroma is of spicy yeast and caramel. It tastes of sweet, bready, caramel malt and spicy Belgian yeast leading into a somewhat dry finish. This tasty brew has a medium body and lively carbonation. Very well done.

Tap. Deep amber with very small head. Light malt and belgian spice. Smooth and very drinkable. sloshgator (741) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2012 Scythe & Sickle is seems to be at first sip wheat beer but has the bitter bite of an IPA as it goes down (but not over the top bitter.) Some nice hop flavors but not too complex. Slight sour quality but not to the level of a sour beer. An interesting change of pace! cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2012
pour is dark orangish amber with tons of creamy off white head leaving a fair amount of lace. Nose has a sweet lemony base to it with a fair bit of spice underlying the lemony sweetness. Notes of tangy yeast towards the back with a soapy hop accompanying. Taste is a bit less integrated with the sweetness strong, the spice lingers in the finish with notes of rye bread in the back. There are some golden fruit notes intertwined throughout. Body is medium, soft and smooth, nice carbonation, and semi dry. marcus (10349) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 15, 2012
On tap at City Beer. Pours cloudy amber with a nice beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a slightly bitter rye and caramel malt flavor with a dry finish. keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - OCT 14, 2012
A: The body pours slightly hazy with a dark amber hue, a towering creamy light tan head forms a nice plateau and has great retention.
S: The aroma is bready with a light rye spice and a very subtle citrus hidden way in the back.
T: Light citrus is from start to finish with a bready sweetness with a lot of complexity from the various grains. A hint of rye is the most prominent of the flavors outside of the citrus.
M: Medium body with a bready feel to it.
O: This is a decent beer with a nice complexity to it and a good balance throughout. I won’t be buying this again, but you should try it for yourself, it’s worth the $2 for a single.
