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!

750 ml bottle shared by some pals who just moved to town - thanks, Colin and Kristin! Bottled October 2013. Odd time to bottle one of these. Consumed in late August 2014. Pours a hazy burnt orange with some yeast floaters and a finger of resilient khaki head. Aroma of nutmeg, allspice, clove, ginger, vanilla, cinnamon, vegetal pumpkin, and toasted brown sugar. Flavor is the same. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a spicy mouthfeel. Pretty spicy all the way through, not quite as balanced as it could be.

Pour is reddish copper with a thin tan ring. Nose is light pumpkin with fair bit of spice. Some grain balance and a touch of banana bread. Taste is heavier pumpkin spice with a hint of apple cider and a touch of banana bread. Fairly strong carb with a medium to full body.

This poured an orange color with a white head. Aroma was of light spices, cracker, yeast esters and grass. Flavor was a great blend between mild pie spices, pumpkin flesh, and saisiny rusticity. Really cool take on a pumpkin beer.

Very hazy pour between amber and mahogany. Malty aroma with pumpkin spice notes. Big sweet spicy pumpkin pie flavor; very full. Great thick mouthfeel. The best pumpkin beer I’ve ever had!

Shared bottle at brewery into tulip glass. Pour is an orange amber color with about a half finger of off-white head. Aroma of sweet pumpkin, nutmeg, ginger and clove. Taste is phenomenal! I get a ginger kick right from the start, then comes the pumpkin pie and spices to round it out. Definitely for the spice-heads. Great offering! I hope this comes around next year.

ryanscourt (748) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Tastes almost like a Belgium pumpkin. Raiseny plum flavors of a dubble. Mixed with delicious pumpkin pie flavors. Got some zip on the toungue.

Shared bottle at Craft Ale. Poured hazy orange with off-white head. Nose was pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, mild hops. Tasted of pumpkin, spice, hops, nit sweet but with a finishing resiny hop matched with natural pumpkin and spice flavor.

Bottle shared by friends. Pours mostly clear dark amber with creamy beige head. Aroma is cereal and cookie malts, cinnamon, nutmeg, spice cake, pumpkin, and light fig. Flavor is heavy spices, pumpkin, lightly sweet bready malts, and faint toast; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

From a bomber. Pours cloudy brown with lots of particles floating around. Thin off white head. Smells like malt, pumpkin, nicely sweet but slightly sour. Tastes like pumpkin pie, holiday spices, and some malt and citrus. Medium body and low carbonation.
