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!

Wow. This one tastes like Big Red gum. A huge miscalculation on the part of Troegs here, far too spiced (especially with cinnamon) without the sweet malt backbone that'd be required to provide balance to that level of spice. I get that you might make a small batch of this as an experiment, but how can you possibly brew it twice, and release it in bombers? Oof.

Shared at our tasting at a predators house. He will go unnamed. Thanks a bunch to yourefragile for sharing this. Coming into this with an open mind regardless of his lambasting.

A - Dark amber with light caramel head. Carb recedes to the edge of the glass.

S - if you dumped a Christmas wreath into a hollowed out pumpkin and then sprayed with a cinnamon gun.

T - the taste follows the smell, except with a shotgun blast to the face of clove. Did I eat a clove cigarette?

M - Unbelievably far too thin for the incredible amount of spice in this beer.

O - this beer just...misses the mark. I had an ounce and a half and had to dump it.
Now, I don't dig on most pumpkin beers. This beer is just way below average even for the style.

Smells like potpourri, it's like I'm in my parents' house at Christmas. Flavor is way too heavy on the spice, and the combination of spices don't work properly together, and there's way too much cinnamon. Way too carbed. Why does this beer exist? Fuck you Moll for bringing this.
