BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tröegs Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States | website

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!

Super excited to pull the cork on this and see what Troegs has conjured up. Note, Troegs must still be working out the kinks in their corking machine, cause this thing was damn near impossible to remove. I was actually considering pulling out the wine opener.

Pours a crystal clear deep copper color, with a small thin head. Smells of pumpkin pie spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, and a bit of clove. There is something in there as well that is crust or bread reminiscent.

Taste is pretty dang solid. A blast of spices fades to a bready caramel like sweetness, then the spices come back on the finish. Cinnamon and nutmeg hold the stage for the spices, but I’m almost certain there is some clove and or allspice going on as well. The back and forth between the spice and sweet is quite nice.

Mouthfeel is spot on. I had heard rumors of excessive carbonation and thinness, but I experienced none of that. It doesn’t have the oily slickness that pumking has, but it certainly has a mouthfeel that is on par for the beer.

Another Troegs offering that I think is worth picking up. I wouldn’t buy a case of it, but I would certainly drink a few over the fall season.

Pours into a chalice a highly carbonated burnt orange with a very thin head atop.Mild yeasty phenols and some barnyard in there as well,very light roasted pumpkin but it's there.A sharp somewhat fizzy feel in the mouth that I don't particularly care for.Highly spiced on the palate between the yeasty phenols and pie spice,big nutmeg and clove...alot of nutmeg.I should have looked at the reviews before buying,disappointing.

Pours clear, orange-brown with 1/4 inch head. Taste is cinnamon, clove, earth, and alcohol. This is a big beer that seems to be average for an imperial pumpkin. Not a bad beer, but I prefer others with more depth.

Had tonight at Walrus + Carpenter on draft, into a tulip glass. Pours a clear copper/rust color with a small head that fades fast, minimal lacing. Quick blast of spice and sweetness on the nose, very mild, notes of clove. Taste is initial malt sweetness which is knocked out by a big wave of spice, too much. I get hints of vanilla and clove. Seems spiced wrong for a pumpkin beer. Medium bodied and gets a little difficult to drink at the end.
