I had seen this little number a few times before I found a single bottle for sale so I could pop a top. Ommegang Scythe & Sickel is brewed with barley, oats, wheat, and rye and rings in at a moderate 5.8% ABV. The brewery touts this as a harvest ale due to the multi-grain malt bill and I gotta say it’s a pretty tasty beverage. To me it had a slight hint of molasses in the flavor and because that was not mentioned on the label I am going to surmise it was a byproduct of the fermentation of the various grains and hops. I probably wouldn’t spend a ton to try this one, but if it crosses my path at a reasonable price I’d certainly grab it in a heartbeat. Supposedly this is an autumn beer so the one I drank was mostly likely hanging around since last fall, but I did not notice any detrimental effects to the beer. I may have to give this another try fresh in the fall just to see if I missed anything by being late to the party. The flavors were somewhat muted and I wonder if they might shine more if consumed fresh.
