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.

Amber/orange brew with little head. Smells of pumpkin and cranberry with some spice. Taste is interesting and you can actually pick out the pumpkin, cranberries, lemongrass, and each spice. Really good brew, plan to get some more of this for Halloween. Well may get some for before too.

Bottle poured a clear orange amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of clove, allspice, cinnamon, carmel and light pumpkin. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth finish. Flavors of carmel, clove, allspice, lemongrass and a hint of cranberry with a smooth lingering spiced finish

Orange body with thin, resilient head that thickens around the edges. Gently fragrant with pumpkin spices of cinnamon and nutmeg and then a distinct splash of cranberries. Interest body restrained nutmeg and then a wave of cranberry. Whereas the aroma strikes a harmonic chord, the jumble of flavors is more confused on the palate. Nonetheless, at worst this is an average pumpkin beer.

12 oz. bottle. Thanks, Joe! Clear, dark orange color, with a medium, beige head. The aroma is pumpkin, grape and cider notes, strong spices, and light bread. The flavor is sweet and vinous. Light to medium body, with a light and watery feel. The palate is thin and lightly astringent. Overall, this is an interesting take on a pumpkin beer.

Bottle. I canít say I pick up the cranberries at all. Mild spices with cinnamon and nutmeg. Some vegetable quality and spice.

Tap at Gman FW. Pours a cloudy dark orange color with some lighter yellow elements. Bubbly white head. Aroma is citrus, fruit, spice, cinnamon. Flavor is fruity as well with a dry pumpkin flavor. Tart flavor and finish. Dry notes that linger. Flavor is good and the kick of the fruit pairs well. I like this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy amber with a finger of fluffy off-white head. Aroma is malts and pumpkin. Taste is pretty much oktoberfest, pumpkin, and a nice cranberry tartness at the finish. This was much better than I expected.

We did a blind taste test between this beer and other pumpkin ales to determine which one is the best pumpkin ale for the season. The beers were Shipyard Pumpkinhead, Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat, Buffalo Billís Americaís Original Pumpkin Ale, Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale, and New Belgium Pumpkick.

Cranberries in a pumpkin beer is one of those things that you just wouldnít expect would come off too well. but this is surprisingly good. Pumpkin beers are a bit sweet for my taste buds these days (Too much spice and brown sugar), so the cranberry is a great counterbalance with just a bit of tartness. I also have missed having access to a cranberry beer since the Sam Adams Cranberry Lambic was discontinued or disappeared from the shelves a holiday season or two back. With all the crappy fruit beers out there, youíd think more brewers would give cranberry a try- itís much better than most of the fruits used after it comes through the brewing process (Even though Iím not one for raw cranberries). This beer comes off well. If I had one complaint, itís that Iíd like it to go a bit lighter on the sugar and spices, and a bit heavier on the pumpkin and cranberry. Iíd love to see a mainstream widely available and affordable craft fall seasonal that was a "naked" pumpkin beer- no sweet additives, just a beer with lots and lots of pumpkin brewed into it. Iíd get sick of this fast drinking it regularly, it goes a bit further from a regular four ingredient beer than i normally like, but as a seasonal that you pick up a 1-3 6 packs a year of? Good fit. Comes around occasionally and provides a change of pace. Of course, this is the first year Iíve had it and Iíve only had the one bottle, so I may go back and edit this a little as time passes and my thinking on it firms up.

12oz bottle. Pours orange with a pink hue. Smells of pumpkin spice with cranberry tart ness. Judging by the commercial deScription this is exactly what it should smell like, although this doesnít mean this is what Iím looking for. Taste has a definite cranberry tartness, obvious pumpkin spice, and a touch of toasted grains. I could see this being a good beer for the cool autumn nights. Why New Belgium came out with this beer for the summer, Iím not sure. (3821)
