COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Whatís 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 itís the cranberries and touch of lemongrass that send your tastebuds sailing.

Out of the bottle and into a frosty glass, this brew poured great with a good head. Aroma is sweet and the taste is even better with pumpkin and hints of nutmeg. New Belgium nailed this pumpkin brew. Love the mild sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly hazy dark amber with a white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma has a nice pumpkin spice to it with some bread. Taste again is pumpkin spice but not as strong as the aroma, bread, and a little tartness. Slight carbonation prickle. Very drinkable.

First out of the chute for the pumpkin beers this year. Orange and slightly hazy, little head, sparse lace. Aroma is pumpkin pie spices, nutmeg, clove, allspice, a little cinnamon. Flavor follows, not a lot of really pumpkin flavor, but more the spices from pie. Cranberries are detectable but not overpowering. Body is mildly to medium carbed, good for the style, with a medium body and a malty, spicy finish. Overall itís not a bad pumpkin beer at all. Not my fav, but pretty tasty.

Bronze orange pour trending towards pale brown. Light, pleasant pumpkin pie filling, gentle spice, wet caramel malt, and maybe a tinge of cranberry. Flavor dissappointing mix of watered-down, acidic cranberry juice trailing to faint pumpkin and spice. More wet malt and lingering acidity and light spice.

12oz bottle. Poured a completely clear orange color with a slightly foamy white head. Aroma was some pumpkin pie spices, caramel, allspice, cloves. Flavor was some sweet notes, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, and while not in the aroma as much, at least at the start, the cranberries are there.

Aromas of cinnamon and licorice some other spice and minor rootyness. Light bubbly white head and amber orange body. tastes of cinnamon, cranberry, pumpkin, and spices. Smooth

Emeister84 (860) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and pumpkin. Clear orange with a mostly fading off-white head. Off-dry, spicy, and with a good bit of cranberry. Light bodied, clean, the finish is a little herbaceous.

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours translucent copper with a creamy beige head. Spice aroma. Med body, or nearly. Flavor is mostly pie spice with some apparent cranberry tartness. Not a lot tho. My tastebuds havenít left the dock. Decent, at least average, spiced ale.

A very nice pumpkin ale. Aromas of pumpkin spice and fruit Lead to a well-balanced pumpkin ale with a good malty backbone and nice sour note from the cranberry. Well done!

Hazy dark ruby pour some head. Aroma of yeast, nutmeg spice, noble hops. Tastes of cherries some musty funk. Thereís also cinnamon, nutmeg overpowering the pumpkin. Strong carb and acidic mouthfeel. This was quite unconventional for a pumpkin beer; more sour and less pumpkin flavor that Iím used to. Some people will really like it.
