Notes/Commercial Description:
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.”

Ommegang is part of Duvel, and it shows. This beer is perfect ode to autumn.

A: Hazy amber body, topped by intense foamy head, that lasts and laces. 4.25
S: Plentiful aroma of fresh bread, apple orchard, and spicy peppercorns. A bit of cider.
T: Creamy and dreamy. Crust of fresh bread, layered with fruit jam (apricot, apple butter), apple cider, yeasty bread centers, and a nice finishing peppery, spice, rye balance this brew. Great long finish.
MF: creamy, rich, cidery.
