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.

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.

Ehh, okay. If you love cranberries you like it I guess. I like pumpkin beers on the sweet pumpkin pie side of the spectrum. It was okay The Derricks ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A well-spiced, slightly tart pumpkin brew with unique carbonation. The finish has a hint of fall leaves. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

When I opened this the first thing I smelled was the scent of cloves and a hint of cranberry. Mouthfeel is not too thick, not too watery. The pumpkin was a bit subdued by the cranberry and cloves and I barely noticed any lemongrass or spices. Overall, not the worst pumpkin beer Iíve ever had yet nowhere near the best. I didnít really notice anything that would make it stand out as a must have.

Pours orange with a medium white head. Smells like pumpkin pie and mild cranberry fruitiness. Taste is pumpkin, spices, and mild tartness. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and mild mouth-carbonation, New Belgium Pumpkick finishes with a hint of tart lemon.

TomDecapolis (4477) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Pours a lightly hazy orange with a bubbly off white head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Hints of pie crust. Flavor of the same pumpkin pie mix with a touch of the cranberries and lemongrass. Didnít really get the cranberry and lemongrass in aroma but its in the flavor and is a nice twist on a pumpkin ale.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Aromas of spices, brown sugar, a hint of pumpkin. Amber-orange color with a white head that hangs around. It has a sharp cranberry flavor that is nice as long as youíre expecting it. Plenty of fall spice flavors but not a ton of pumpkin. Nice aftertaste, but it feels a tad too bubbly. Overall a good, drinkable fall beer, if not a great pumpkin ale.
