Beer added by: orangesol on 10-23-2013

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!

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.

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.
