Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewed with native Pennsylvania neck pumpkins harvested just a few miles from our brewery at Strites’ Orchard, Master of Pumpkins conjures the spirit of autumn by combining roasted pumpkins and traditional pie spices with a French saison yeast. This natural fermentation releases a palate of vanilla, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, ginger, and honey. In addition to 750mL bottles, Master of Pumpkins is also currently available on draft and for take-out growler fills in the Tasting Room. Taste it you will see. More is all you need!

Pour is reddish copper with a thin tan ring. Nose is light pumpkin with fair bit of spice. Some grain balance and a touch of banana bread. Taste is heavier pumpkin spice with a hint of apple cider and a touch of banana bread. Fairly strong carb with a medium to full body.

Im drinking a 750 ml corked and caged bottle at cellar temp poured into a snifter. The beer is clear chestnut color with a beige fluffy layer of head that fades quickly to an edge layer.
Aroma is sweet malt with caramel and some brown sugar. Mixes with lots of spice, nutmeg and cinnamon primarily. I also get a little bit of cloves. Sweet and spicy nose on this one.
First sip reveals average body, fine carbonation that rolls across my palate.
Flavor is sweet malt, brown sugar and some toffee, a little bready yeast and this rolls to lots of spice.
Cinnamon and nutmeg dominate with a little bit of clove and general sweetness. The beer is pretty typical for a pumpkin beer. Nothing mind blowing but a solid example for the style. I think it is just the style that doesnt wow me as this beer certainly has no flaws.

Poured from the 750 ml bottle into an SA glass.

The appearance is a nice brown fall beer colour. Lots of carbonation bubbles but minimal head with slight lacing.
Smell is a bit weak for a pumpkin beer, but I think it's intended that way here. Not unpleasant.
I like the choice of saison yeast very much, it's different in a good way. If only the cinnamon was dialed back a bit, this would be a contender.
Too light for the style, but okay.
A worthy brewery that was too free with the cinnamon this time, I think.
This is not a bad beer, worth a try if you want a different take on pumpkin beer.
