Availability: Fall

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!

Growler fill from the brewery then into a tulip glass. Crystal clear amber brown in color. Plenty of head that died away quickly. Spicy aroma but not overpowering. Taste... now that is overpowering! The spice in that is like doing the cinnamon challenge (well not that bad (not that I would know anyway)). But for the love of all that is barley, ouch! I have Indian food with less cardamom. Boys, I know you like the hops so I assume you were thinking the same dosing limits with spice for this but c’mon now. My only hope is that the corked and caged bottle I also got will mellow with age. Now to the mouth feel I guess. It is great, if you don’t mind a slight tingle on your tongue from all the spice.

Served on-tap at the brewery.

A - Pours murky brown with a small half finger tall white head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving spotty strings of lace down the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of pumpkin pulp, nutmeg, ginger, touch of cinnamon, dash of light funk from the saison yeast and some mild caramel and toffee from the malt.

T - Starts off with the pulpy pumpkin quickly being enveloped by the various pie spices, light funk and the mild toffee and caramel sweetness. Finish is rather spicy, lingering long after the finish.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, spicy feel throughout. The booze is rather well hidden, only really coming out of the shadows once it comes to room temperature.

O - A rather nice pumpkin beer. I prefer them to have less spice than actual pumpkin flavor, and this one follows that pretty well. If you like Pumpkin beers this is definitely worth seeking out.

Serving type: on-tap
