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.

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.

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.

This was very different. A spicy light yet carbonated beer with a slight pumpkin flavor that is finished with a bitter cranberry kick.

On tap: The aroma consists ginger, nutmeg, light pumpkin, and light cranberry. It?s a transparent amber with a small white head that adds to a thin film and leaves a nice sheet of lacing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of pumpin. The finish has ginger, nutmeg, light clove, and just a hint of tartness that I assume comes from the cranberry. It?s light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, if you like pumpkin beers, you?ll like this. The cranberry is minimal, itís more of a slight lingering in the aftertaste. I was skeptical, but it seems to work.

Nice traditional pumpkin with just a bit of cranberry, this ale only fails in that it doesn't stand much apart from. Basic pumpkin in any way that pleases me. Cranberry bitterness is ok, but doesn't balance well. Could be that I didn't have any beer glasses handy and the aromas were choked in the bottle, but there you have it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dessert in my glass! Only lightly fragrant but you can def sniff out those pumpkin pie spices!! Tastes like a well rounded and balanced blend, flavorful but also very crisp on the palate. White cranberries are the rockstars here. Very little lacing and little to no head. Bottle pour into a Duvel glass. This will be in my grocery basket a few more times before autumn is over!
