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!

P- Troegs Brewery

A- caramel brown color that is quite opaque. half finger head that leaves minimal lacing on my chalice.

S- wow dominate clove and nutmeg with a complement of cinnamon.

F- nutmeg and cinnamon come out more in the mouth with hints of clove and honey. some nutty malts as well.

M- chewy and medium bodied. the spices linger in the mouth and the palate.

O-a spicy pumpkin. the cinnamon is pretty dominant as I continue but another good brew from troegs.

From a bottle, pours a dark copper with ruby hues, some bubbles but almost zero head, and it what does build disappears to nothing quickly.

The nose is pumpkins, some rustic funk, definitely get the saison yeast backbone in the smell. It is very bready, pie crust, a little vanilla.

The flavor is balanced, not really all that sweet. Fresh pumpkin seeds, fall spice, a bit nutty, with just faint honey sweetness. The honey flavor is the only sweet part. The pumpkin is not too dominant and mixes well.

Mouthfeel is good, dry finish. I like this. It's a good pumpkin beer.

i think this one is way underrated. one of the most flavorful pumpkin beers of the season, brilliant dark orangy rusty amber in color, rich off white head with great retention and ring lacing. a nose of squash first, honey for sure, and a funky yeast that doesnt exactly seem like saison, but definitely champagne like with complimentary fruity esters. nutmeg and allspice are there, roast, and caramel sweetness, its lovely aromatically. the flavor is just as good, with the spice profile balancing the sweet pumpkin very well. almost tastes more like acorn or butternut squash than pumpkin, but that works too. sweet in the finish, honey and malt together, very nice, but the yeast lets it not linger, and adds jovial carbonation that doesnt quit even at room temperature. i like the complexity here, and believe this one deserves a bit more attention. the yeast is so cool, nice to have a yeasty pumpkin brew, i think its a perfect fall beer, just fantastic from troegs.
