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.

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.
