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.

Where and how: Bottle 355 ml Virginia Beach
Aroma fruity berry like wrap blended with coriander, clove and other pumpkin spices. Touch of bubble gum. Pleasant.
Appearance:
Top: lighter beige top.
Base: slight haze on deep copper.
Palate : some frontal astringency.
Taste: fruity feel that classes with spices around.
Other notes OK but perhaps overly complicated set up. Keep it simple.

jmohno (1065) - Iowa, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Color is a orangish/light brown light copper. Clear,frothy at first. Aroma of mild pumpkin spice,brown sugar and citrus,slightly hoppy almost with the citrus.Mild bubblegum tones. Taste is fullish body but kinda light/sessionable,some zesty citrus finish and some tangy cranberry more noticable in the finish. Floral perfumy taste probably from the spice and fruit citrus lemongrass/cran combo. A different twist on a pumpkin,not bad but not my thing,Id rather have a good pumpkin more traditional type of beer-maltier and bigger though is my kind of pumpkin. Fairly tart finish. Good for what it is.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Pours a hazy amber with off-white head. Aroma has subtle malt and subtle cranberry and the pumpkin spices are kinda vague but noticeable. Flavor is much the same, light flavors, dry, with a pleasant hint of tart. Mouth feel is light body with high carbonation. Overall, seems more like a fall beer for summer.....not to mention it was released early August so it makes sense. I like it.

Reddish amber color. White head lasts the whole time. Aroma is mild bitter pumpkin as is flavor with a little more bitterness. Finish has a little sweetness and spice. A decent pumpkin ale but thatís it.

scooterbub (827) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - AUG 13, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours an amber with a two inch beige head that last. Taste is of allspice, nutmeg, pumpkin, spice, lemon and cranberry. Aroma is more nutmeg and allspice forward. Has a nice body with a spicier finish. Easy to drink and very enjoyable. Seasonable and rather unique. Will have again.

lb4lb (2532) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Pours dark amber with whitish head. Smell is slightly spiced and light pumpkin. Taste is a bit tart and malty with not much discernible spice at all. Faint pumpkin flavor perhaps. Overall a bit bland unfortunately. Still drinkable and decent but fell short of my expectations based on the ingredients. Didn't really get any cranberry flavor...
