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!

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.

I hate to say it but troegs blew it with this one- I normally like them and thought I'd give this a try but In the end down the drain it goes.

Color is rather pretty however; clear Amber mahogany with minimal head lace retention.

Smell and taste are extremely spice heavy- particularly a lot of clove but pretty much everything you'd expect like nutmeg and cinnamon. A little pumpkin but the spices are pretty brutal. There is some saison yeast but it's hidden.

Mouthfeel is fine- medium body, well carbonated. Don't get this beer- I rarely say that. If you love clove cigarettes this may be your jam however.
