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!

Brownish copper color. Nose has a little spice and a tart essence as well. The spices are more upfront in the flavor profile than the pumpkin.

Bottle > Pint

A - Clear amber with half a finger of fizzy white head, no lacing.
S - Nutmeg, cinnamon, light clove, floral hints, allspice, pumpkin roast
T - Slightly sweet, cinnamon, big nutmeg, a little cinnamon, slight tartness, ginger, some spice bite, bready malt.
M - Medium feel, a little warmth in the end of it.
O - Decent, good attempt, the slight bubbly tartness of the saison yeast is neat with a pumpkin.

Not sure where the 750ml bottles went but I found this 375 ml bottle for a final cost of 5 dollars which is fair for such a limited release. Into a pint glass.

A - Glad to report the Saison Yeast didn't make for huge carbonation just a 1/2 inch that seems to fade out rather fast. Color is a hazy deep brown yet clear.
S - Not too vegital which is nice mild notes of pumpkin spices mostly cinnamon and nutmeg greet and meet. Slight ginger spice and some sour notes seem to be their as well.
T - Interesting the Yeast seems in fact does bring some vanilla to the table. Vegital bitterness is their to keep it interesting with some hop twang and the cinnamon/ all spice to is their to compliment. Good!
M - As expected for 7% its right in line medium bodied yet thick enough to be an end of session offering.

Overall WOW I was actually impressed they could pull this off! With the addition to Saison yeast is always tricky to be carbonated right and even more so to give the beer an extreme sour note this beer is exceptionally well crafted! I actually liked this better than the Triple offering I really hope they keep brewing this! Made my top 3 for best pumpkin ales of this year!
