Troegs Craft Brewery – Master of Pumpkins (2014)

23 Oct

NicAA: Cloudy russet with a leggy, off-white head. You can smell the cinnamon and vanilla across the room, so inviting. 9/10

NicTM: Fuller body, moderate carbonation. Rich clove and honey meld with the peppery saison yeast, then lead you by the tastebuds to the pumpkin and vanilla. Rich. 9/10

NicP: The buttery, sweet Pennsylvania neck pumpkins are a delicious fresh addition here, and are flavorful enough to hold their own against fairly complex spicing. 5p

NicO: Big and flavor packed, every layer of this beer is wonderfully balanced. This beer aced it’s Master’s and should be working on it’s PhD. 91/100

AlexAA: Bright fruity notes, mainly apple, cloves, and honey make up a thick aroma from this burnt umber hued ale 9/10

AlexTM: Strong cloves and French saison yeast w/ a hint of apples and pumpkin that hit in the first wave of this complex pumpkin ale, it then deepens from an edge of ginger to a sweet vanilla honey finish w/ light cinnamon and nutmeg. 9/10

AlexP: The cloves and ginger are the loudest voice in this chorus, overwhelming pumpkins that peek thru shyly in presence but not in taste every so often. 3P

AlexO: Finally, a pumpkin ale with European flair – the saison yeast alone makes this Fancy Pants ale show off it’s flashy spicing in an elegant way. 90/100
