Style: Pumpkin Ale

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!

Looks and smells identical to dfh but it has an offensive bitter taste to it. I had high hopes for this one because I love troegs but its botched

Look: Amber; reserved head, decent lacing.

Smell: Complex - vinous fruit and spice; perhaps vanilla

Taste: Starts out with some vinous sweetness, following by spice-pumpkin and finishes somewhat tart.

Feel: Round: peppery. Not as carbonated as expected.

Overall: Certainly points for uniqueness if nothing else. Some fair residual kick to it as well. Wouldn't mind another: (Not sure I'd want a six.)

Pours a fiery copper orange with a just tan head of creamy foam that lasts and wants to outlast the drink but can't. A plume, a stream of effervescence form the center. Clear and brick color reds mingle with rust color oranges for a lovely fiery hue.

Nose is buttery pie crust that has become toasty and sweetened as it became browned. Woody and very herbal hop. Dried herbs, citric tang. pumpkin pie spices. Nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice and a bright bit of ginger. This malt is full and breaddy and gives a soft supple feeling to the mouthfeel. The pumpkin is raosted. There is a lovely hop pepper int his. the saison yeast makes this beer. it augments the dryness of the malts, the toastiness. You are never sorry that the malt is a bit fuller with this yeast. A bit of stickiness finishes this beer as the hop herbal comes bitter to the finish. Dry toasty and spicy. Outstanding!

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.

Amber to deep amber in color with no head or lacing.

Aroma is floral with some cinnamon.

Taste is cinnamon, ginger, clove with yeast throughout. Finish is a bit spicy.

Thin with higher carbonation. Finish is dry.

Idk. Too much spice imbalance and not enough sweetness. YMMV. Try it with other pumpkin beers.

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.

The beer offers allspice, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, as advertised. Waves of gingersnap cookies for days. Lively carbonation as the base saison comes through with bready sweetness and a dry, spicy finish.
