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.

New Belgium is a good all around brewery. This seems below their normal standards. Too sweet with not enough hops to balance the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear dark amber color with light tan head. Aromas of pumpkin pie spices. Similar flavors with a hint of cranberry tartness. Medium body with average carbonation. Pumpkin beers aren’t my thing but a friend had a bottle and tickers gonna tick!

On tap at Taco Mac- Cumming. Clear med amber pour with thin frothy ivory head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, sweet malts. Taste like fall. All the fall flavors wrapped into a beer. Taste cinnamon nutmeg cranberries and toffee. Not too overwhelming. Could def sit and drink several of these.

skoisirius (1880) - Earth, Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle. Was this really the first time NB had done a pumpkin beer? Crazy. Well it’s pretty good. Not a flavor bomb or anything, but a well spiced kicked session style punkin’ ale. The cranberry’s and lemongrass come together perfectly at the end for a light extra hit of flavor that lingers. Badaboom.

Ernest (6745) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber-brown. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, cookie), with notes of pomegranate, cooked meat/gravy, light notes of detergent, plastic, nutmeg. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic. A pretty unpleasant mess. Weird odors abound, and there’s not much of the advertised tartness until the finish but even then I was confused by the description...where’s the cranberry juice? And for that matter, where’s the cinnamon/allspice/nutmeg? It’s just kind of aimless and bland and off-smelling.

Aroma is cinnamon/nutmeg/spices, mild vegetative notes and strong hints of pumpkin and cranberries. The flavor is pumpkin, cranberries, mild/medium spices, malts and a tart finish.
