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!

Poured from the 750 ml bottle into an SA glass.

The appearance is a nice brown fall beer colour. Lots of carbonation bubbles but minimal head with slight lacing.
Smell is a bit weak for a pumpkin beer, but I think it's intended that way here. Not unpleasant.
I like the choice of saison yeast very much, it's different in a good way. If only the cinnamon was dialed back a bit, this would be a contender.
Too light for the style, but okay.
A worthy brewery that was too free with the cinnamon this time, I think.
This is not a bad beer, worth a try if you want a different take on pumpkin beer.
