Scythe & Sickle by Brewery Ommegang
Bière de Garde
5.80 % ABV

Scythe & Sickle is an-amber ale brewed with a variety of malts, including pils, rye flakes and oat flakes, for incredible depth of flavor and a hint of natural sweetness. Scythe & Sickle brings a new life and flavor to autumn beer lists traditionally filled with Oktoberfests and pumpkin ales. The flavors of the hard work of summer and the celebration of autumn harvest are captured in Scythe & Sickle, creating a unique but traditional Ommegang farmhouse harvest ale.

“Scythe & Sickle is our foray into honoring the harvest season, taking the finest malts and blending them seamlessly into a rich amber ale,” says Brew Master Phil Leinhart. “Farming is about precision, timing and care, and this gently sweet ale is our testament to the craft and care of farming.”

(Served in a globe glass)
A- The clear deep orange body has a thick creamy light tan head and a relaxed microcarbonation to it.

S- The fresh malt has some lightly toasted oat notes and some earthy malt hints followed by some dubbel or dark sherry notes in the finish.

T- The earthy grain has some lightly toasted malt notes followed by the classic Ommegang yeast profile. There is a nice cola note in the finish with a herbal green dry hop finish. The dubble yeast flavor and dark candy notes come thru as the beer opens up.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle carbonation and no alcohol heat noticed.

O- This beer has a nice toasted malt and earthy grain flavor with great “cellar” character. Making is a bit mysterious, yet complex and sessionable at the same time.
