COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What’s that bite of tartness doing in a pumpkin beer? Adding the unexpected kick of cranberry juice to brighten this traditionally spiced seasonal ale. PUMPKICK is brewed with plenty of pumpkin juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice, but it’s the cranberries and touch of lemongrass that send your tastebuds sailing.

Bottle. Very nice pumpkin beer. Slightly hazy orange pour with a smaller rocky head. Pumpkin pie spices, hint of tart berry - very mild but there. Nice creamy texture. Good beer.

12fl oz bottle poured into a shaker. Cloudy orange with a modest white creamy cap. Aroma of pumpkin pie. Wow, okay. I just reviewed a different pumpkin ale and said it was the closest thing to liquid pumpkin pie I'd had. New Belgium has beaten that with Pumpkick. This has a lot of pumpkin flavor along with the spices. The other brew was lacking the pumpkin in comparison. This is delicious. Well done New Belgium, well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours copper orange with aroma of pumpkin and some spice. Mostly pumpkin flavor-slightly sour(?) with spice backbone. Okay beer.

Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 7, 2015
12-pack from Big Red Liquor, Indianapolis. Pours a small white head over a muddy, dark orange body. Lacing is a tight cascade. The aroma is very mild; struggling to pick up some notes of caramel. Mild spice, some red fruit sweetness. Medium carbonation and medium body. This isn’t complex but it is refreshing.

I like the cranberry kick, but still pretty standard heavy spiced medium bodied pumpkin beer.

Aroma is somewhat malty. Taste is a tart and sweet fruit mixed with just a little spice. Overall not the best pumpkin out there.

EJD 1/17/16. Hazy light amber pour with a hint of garnet. Normal head volume, outstanding retention and world class lacing. Interesting nose of pumpkin, cranberry and mixed spice, but a bit light in intensity. Heavy light body with a fairly smooth texture. Slightly below normal carbonation with a hint of effervescence in the middle and a slightly stronger finish. While not quite outstanding due to a lack of intensity, it is complex and very well balanced. Slightly tart cranberry adds a nice twist to this otherwise light brew. Cranberry is the main component while light spice and pumpkin rest underneath. There is enough sweetness to balance the tartness, but sweet is never really perceived. Bitterness is a mere hint. The finish is slightly dry and a mild tartness lingers over a hint of pumpkin.

MarcoDL (3795) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle. Orange golden color. Aroma of pumpkin, nuts, cinnamon and cake. Nice taste of sweet pumpkin, cinnamon spice, caramel cake, wheat and a sweet pumpkin finish. Good cake beer.
