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!

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.

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.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Bottle:   Deep amber, a little fiery, thin frothy tannish head, little lacing.   Spicy nose, definite cinnamon and nutmeg, along with some ginger and clove.   Plethora of spices on the tongue.   Clove and ginger are a bit stronger here.   Nutmeg and Cinnamon are a bit overshadowed, but come out a bit more after the clove and ginger die down.   This one is pretty tasty, not overdone, but certainly is a spiced kick.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Back of the throat just keeps that clove hanging around.   You want a plethora of spices, this is the beer for you!   Pretty tasty and bright!

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.

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.

Damico (2579) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Wow, quite delicious. Pours dark amber thick but somewhat clear with a whitish ring for a head. Aroma brings a rush of fall spices in mixing nutmeg and subtle cinnamon sticks and cloves smooth and soft in the nose. Flavor brings big clove and some nutmeg and cinnamon settling on the palate. There is a calm sweetness settling to suggest pumpkin.

Huhzubendah (2522) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thank you Michael. The beer is copper to amber hued with a small, broken, off-white head. The aroma highly potent dose of pumpkin flavor. Perhaps a note of brown sugar. Incredibly sweet and forthcoming. Nothing subtle about this one. Only a few ounces is needed. Sweet and cloying after only a couple of drinks. Good idea, but this is certainly best in small samples.

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.

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.
