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!

12.7oz corked & caged bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours burnt golden with a subtle haze; nice fluffy white head that fades and leaves decent retention and little lacing. The aromas are subtle with hints of caramel malts, cinnamon and anise. French vanilla is there. The Belgian yeast is definitely present as well. The flavors are very nice. Tons of clove. Cinnamon and ginger is there. Lots of apple. It definitely has that spicy black pepper vibe going on, which you would find in a saison. More vanilla in the mix. The yeast is always there, but it's balanced and not overwhelming at all. Mouthfeel is awesome. It's highly carbonated and extremely smooth; medium-bodied. Dangerously drinkable. Alcohol goes unnoticed.

This is a nice unique take on the style. They deliver what they advertised. I think they perfectly balanced the mix between a Pumpkin Ale and a Saison. It can become redundant at times, but it's a really fun beer to drink. The craftsmanship that Troegs has perfected gives it extra credit. Not sure why people seem so down on this beer.
