BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tröegs Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States
troegs.com

Style: Pumpkin Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.40%

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!

Pours into a chalice a highly carbonated burnt orange with a very thin head atop.Mild yeasty phenols and some barnyard in there as well,very light roasted pumpkin but it's there.A sharp somewhat fizzy feel in the mouth that I don't particularly care for.Highly spiced on the palate between the yeasty phenols and pie spice,big nutmeg and clove...alot of nutmeg.I should have looked at the reviews before buying,disappointing.

Pours clear, orange-brown with 1/4 inch head. Taste is cinnamon, clove, earth, and alcohol. This is a big beer that seems to be average for an imperial pumpkin. Not a bad beer, but I prefer others with more depth.

Had tonight at Walrus + Carpenter on draft, into a tulip glass. Pours a clear copper/rust color with a small head that fades fast, minimal lacing. Quick blast of spice and sweetness on the nose, very mild, notes of clove. Taste is initial malt sweetness which is knocked out by a big wave of spice, too much. I get hints of vanilla and clove. Seems spiced wrong for a pumpkin beer. Medium bodied and gets a little difficult to drink at the end.

I hate to say it but troegs blew it with this one- I normally like them and thought I'd give this a try but In the end down the drain it goes.

Color is rather pretty however; clear Amber mahogany with minimal head lace retention.

Smell and taste are extremely spice heavy- particularly a lot of clove but pretty much everything you'd expect like nutmeg and cinnamon. A little pumpkin but the spices are pretty brutal. There is some saison yeast but it's hidden.

Mouthfeel is fine- medium body, well carbonated. Don't get this beer- I rarely say that. If you love clove cigarettes this may be your jam however.
