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.

amber beer with a solid aroma. Good mouth feel. I think this rates a little better than other spice beers Ivíe tries. Overall a bit bland and unmemorable.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2013 bottle. nice looking reddish orange beer with a small, stable, frothy white head. usual pumpkin spice notes with a distinct, sweet, juicy cranberry note. the cranberry provides a juicy sweetness to the beer that makes it unique and seems to thicken the body and a hint of tart in the finish. the body seems full and juicy with a nice creaminess.

vyvvy (3996) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Pours fairly clear reddish orange with a good sized rocky beige head. The aroma has some cranberry tartness, mild pumpkin (compared to most of the style), pumpkin pie spices and the amber ale bases that is with so many of this style. Pretty decent really. Medium bodied with a crispness to it and modest amount of carbonation. The taste begins with pumpkin, toasty amber ale malt, minor spices and a mere hint of the cranberry. The finish puts the spices and cranberry more to the front of the mix and the pumpkin takes a backseat. Would want this every day, but itís a pleasant take on the pumpkin ale scene.

Smells a little like a pumpkin or squash pie. Nice clean flavor of spicy, earthiness with some caramel and just maybe a hint of cranberry. The nutmeg and cinnamon make me think of a Christmas beer, but the pumpkin does come through and balance it out.

Bottle
Aroma: Spice, fruit juice, really quite nice
Appearance: Nice clear, clean brown/orange with long lasting foamy white head
Taste: Apple pie like spice, bread, fruit juice
Palate: Light to medium body, no bitterness, very slight tartness
Overall: Was a tad skeptical, but this is a unique twist and is very enjoyable. Not too sweet, and just tart enough to appeal to that part of my palate. Subtle execution.

The cranberry gives this flavor a nice change of pace to usually boring pumpkin ales. I donít mind pumpkin ales but they rarely have much going on pumpkin flavor wise. But this was a surprisingly good combination that frankly Iím kind of amazed no one thought of before. Cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie are a no brainer.
