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.

This beer was very complex. Started with a nice kick that deepened into a nice, rich pumpkin taste.

Draft pour on our tour at the brewery. Pours a cloudy orange with a small off-white head. Smells and tastes like you’d expect for a pumpkin ale- cinnamon, clove, allspice, nutmeg, lemongrass, and sweet malts that replicate a pumpkin pie with a crust. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a really dry mouthfeel. I enjoy pumpkin ales and this delivers on what most would expect, but just falls a little short of other, richer examples of the style.

12oz. bottle, rich looking amber with a thin head. Mild aromas of pumpkin pie. Smooth flavors of spiced pumpkin. Some tartness from the cranberries that barely shows up in the background. Finish isn’t that well blended. Pumpkin pie follows into the closing. I still like it, the flavors are not too dominate.

Draft. Pours a medium, well retained, ivory head, with slight lacing, over a very slightly hazy dark amber (SRM 15) body.......nose is very light pumpkin, hints of pumpkin pie spice.....taste is sightly sweet to start with light cranberry, then mild pumpkin/squash tones, minimal spice notes, very light hop bitterness.....mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, carbonation low, adding a bit of acid. This is a different on the pumpkin type, with very low spice tones and the squash being partially hidden. The cranberry adds hints of sour and a mild sweetness resulting in something that wanders into the vast Belgian realm. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

SA fuge bottle. Bubbly orange and copper pour with a thin khaki head and nice lacing. Aroma is vegetal pumpkin and a little spice. Flavor is spicy with a little caramel apple sweetness. Fall is almost here. Tasty.

Hazy orange pour with a white head. The aroma is full of cloves and cinnamon and not too much else. Smells like your classic, spicy American pumpkin ale. The flavor is also very familiar. I get a lot of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice notes. I read on Ratebeer that there is lemongrass and cranberries in the beer but I don’t get any of that in the aroma or flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Not a very potent pumpkin and the cranberry feels out of place. Would not buy again.

12oz bottle, from Super Liquor III in Adrian, MI. Shared with robotopera. Best before 17/Nov/13. Clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Couple loose bits of lace. Softer carbonation. More dry finish. Spice, cranberry juice taste in the flavor, a lot less pumpkin than in the nose... Just a hint of it in the flavor. Pretty sweet taste, and spice. Alright pumpkin beer. Was hoping for more, from New Belgium. The cranberry makes for an interesting twist, but the beer as a whole is too sweet and spicy for me.

Not a bad beer. Has a weird aftertaste. Their are hints of cranberry in the finish but the pumpkin taste is lacking. I would not recommend this to beer drinkers that like pumpkin flavors.

Poured a medium amber with little head. Faint nose. Mild pumpkin spices across the mouth with just a hint of cranberry at the back of the throat.
