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!

This is one of the best pumpkin beers you can get your hands on, but it's not very pumpkiny compared to most pumpkin beers. It's got a rich color and flavor and has a nice sweetness that pairs with its spiciness. If you can get it, get it.

Poured into a tulip and treated as a Belgian ale with pumpkin flavor added, the appearance was a dark muddy orange color with a sustaining finger and a half’s worth of white foamy head. Lacing moves in a sly sticky fashion roaming around the glass nicely. The aroma starts off with sweet pumpkin flesh, Belgian spicy yeast, gentle sweet bready to toffee malts and a warming boozy raisin smell underneath. The flavor balances exceptionally well between the sweet of pumpkin to the Belgian bready/yeastiness. Spices slyly move in. Some ginger, allspice and cinnamon help to provide a nicer cozier balance and everything seems to combine wonderfully in the aftertaste and leaves a quick semi-spicy to sweet malty pumpkin sort of finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a nice sipping to sly sessionable moveable sort of feel. Spices hit in the harshness but the carbonation also helps to balance and not distract. Overall, because of the yeast strain Troeg’s uses for this beer, I believe this is a Belgian ale that has a great amount of pumpkin in it. I would love to have this again.
