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.

Total Wine, Fairfax 12oz: Pours orange with a wee white head. Aroma is mild pumpkin spice and a little bit of cranberry. The cranberry is pretty subdued in the taste. Basically, I am getting mild pumpkin spice in this beer. Slightly sweet. Fairly bubbly. Mouthfeel ok. Not particularly impressed.

Light aroma. Fruit and spice. A hint of yeast. Clear orange gold with slight effervescence and a thin off white head. Light bodied, effervescent mouthfeel. Vegetal, slight fruit flavor with crisp tartish finish. Not bad.

Bottle, 12oz. Itís a hazy, golden-orange beer with a dense, finger-thick off-white to light beige head leaving curtains. Itís slightly berry-sour on the nose, with a spiced touch and something citrusy. Some caramel maltyness too. Itís very soft on the palate, a bit too carbonated actually, and if it werenít for the light tartness, it wouldíve been way too much. Itís medium to thin bodied. Spices, some bitterness, a touch of caramel and citrus peel in the flavor, finishing lightly sourish and with a nice combo of caramel, spices and citrus. Quite interesting this one, adding the cranberry juice and using less spices than everyone else seems like a good idea to me. 130829

Bottle. Amber with small head. Iím picky when it comes to pumpkin beers. This really missed the spot for me. Thereís plenty of pumpkin, but everything else is just a complete mess.

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 youíd 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.

beerbastard (772) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 28, 2013
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 isnít 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.
