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 oz corked bottle

Pours a hazy amber orange, yellowish white head is fine and dissipates to a thick lacing.

Smells of rich brown sugar malts with pronounced spices: cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

Tastes of sweet pumpkin pie, graham cracker, cinnamon, clove, and ginger. Any hop presence is subtle and blends with the bitterness of the clove.

Medium body with a tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

One of the most heavily spiced pumpkin ales I've had, I can see how this beer might be divisive even among fans of pumpkin ales, but for my money it is quite good and maybe even fantastic. Certainly a dessert beer, and only for those who like the presence of cinnamon and cloves. If that sounds like it is up your alley, this could easily be a top 5 pumpkin ale.

Date: 10/29/14
Location: Beer Culture
Draught/Bottle: Bottle
Glassware: Snifter

Appearance: Dark Amber/Orange closing in on a light brown. Off white colored head that produces little cling of any kind. Retention is below average.
Aroma: Pumpkin spices are the primary aroma with clove hitting extremely hard then some flavors of sugar, both brown and white. Slight pumpkin aroma in the back.
Taste: The clove hits harder in the flavoring but I get more pumpkin as well. The beer is again slightly sweet with sugars. I pick up ginger now. I also get some malts providing an earthy/hay even dirt flavor.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. I get no alcohol warmth despite the 7.2 abv. A little dry to finish.

Lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, some ginger. Lots of carb. Picking up some Belgian - like yeast flavor. It's ok.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Look: Deep copper to auburn in color. Small creamy head when poured that disappears quickly with almost no trace of ever being there. Appears kind of flat.

Smell: Smells delicious - pumpkin. nutmeg, and spices. Made me want to drink the beer.

Taste: Pumpkin pie-like. Tastes likes it smells. Clove flavored, slightly dry finish. I really liked it for what it is.

Feel: Kind of thin. Mild carbonation. Slightly dry finish.

Overall: I really enjoyed this beer for what it is - a specialty Fall beer. I thought the smell was awesome and the flavor of pumpkin pie very good. I would gladly drink this again when I was in the mood for a pumpkin flavored beer.
