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.

Slightly hazy orange with a thin rocky head. Aroma is pumpkin-y with some nutmeg and allspice, with a small whiff of christmas-y cranberry skin. Flavor is similar; in fact, very in-line with the majority of pumpkin beers, being a little heavy on the spice flavoring and not quite enough pumpkin. But the finish features a little bit of that floral christmasy tone. Not shabby, but not memorable.

Poured from the bottle. Color is golden with slight amber hue. Aroma is a mix of confused spices, with nothing pronounced coming through. Flavor is slightly sweet, but the pumpkin pie spices and yams are almost missing they are so mild. Its one strong point is that the mouthfeel is creamy, otherwise, there are much better offerings in this style.

12 oz. bottle. It pours a semi clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma has big notes of pumpkin squash with milder hints of ginger and cinnamon. Definitely spice forward. The flavor is dry and decently spiced. A significant amount of vegetal squash and cinnamon, ginger. Pretty light bodied and fizzy on the palate. Pretty decent, but kind of a yawner.

Draught > Flying Saucer. This is terrible. Reminds me why I distrust anything from New Belgium. Weak, thin body. A slightly pumpkin beer for the Shipyard or Bud Lite devotees.

Deep golden beer with a short lived white head. Pie spice nose with something a little winy. I noticed something odd in here without reading the label, and I donít think Iím a fan of the tartness added to a pumpkin beer. It tasted like the typical pie spices but had an odd, metallic tartness that I guess is the cranberries.

Draft at the hub at DEN. Pours a clear pumpkiny color with a thick, frothy head. Not much in aroma. Maybe some malt. Light, pumpkin taste with some nutmeg in the background. Decent malt presence. Decent beer, but could be better.

Bottle. Pours golden orange with a small fizzy head that quickly fades to nothing. Aroma is faint, light pumpkin, cinnamon, and all spice. Taste is decent but watery. Mostly just pumpkin pie spices. Slight fruity finish. Thin body. Overall, a bit bland but goes down really easy. Would make a good pumpkin tailgate beer.

Shag (2714) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Copper color with a white head. Tons of pumpkin and spice in the nose. Flavor is rather malty with cinnamon and brown sugar. Aftertaste is a bit sweet. Overall nice beer.

BrettTaylor (649) - Radford, Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Pours a medium gold with a touch of red. Light head with no lacing. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cranberry with a hint of lemongrass. Taste is typical pumpkin ale, but bumped up with a tang of cranberry. Tastes crisp and refreshing like a fall day.

bottle - Pours orange and smells of pumpkin and spice. It tastes sweet and is jam packed with spices. The pumpkin is notably present too. Iím not getting cranberry, personally, but thatís okay. Itís easy drinking and pretty good.
