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.

Bottle. Orange-amber with a short tan head. The pumpkin pie spice is there in the aroma but I could swear I also smell Old Bay seasoning. Thatís not a bad thing, because I love Old Bay, but it seems slightly out of place. Aroma is simply spice laden. I donít detect any of the cranberry. Taste is mostly pumpkin, spices, sweet malt, light berries and light tartness. Body is medium with a moderate, yet lively, carbonation. Ends with more strong spices, pumpkin, sweet malt, light brown sugar, berries and mild tartness.

12-oz. Pours a clear pale amber with a loose scant gray head. Mix of tart cran with pie spice on the nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Fruity tartness from the cran along with that pumkingy capn crunch mid palate. Long sugar-milk saturday morning cartoons finish.

12 oz bottle from Wilburís. Amber-copper colored and clear with a small white head. Aroma of pumpkin pie, cinnamon, spices, toasted malts and light fruit. Similar flavors, nicely balanced and easy to drink. Nice subtle touch with lemongrass. Medium body with a soft creamy feel and a smooth finish.

Great sessionable beer from New Belgium. Tartness from the cranberry juice makes the beer finish dry and canít wait to get another sip. Another great NBB seasonal!

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2014 Bottle @ home picked up at RJís Fort Collins. From what Iíve gathered this is a lighter version of their Kick release last year. It is also their new fall seasonal. Pours a clear copper appearance with a nice cream colored head. Lightly tangy fruity, mild apple, fairly spicy cinnamon/nutmeg/vanilla, a bit toasted malty aroma. Mild caramel/pumpkin, toasted malty, vanilla, cran-apple, cinnamon, moderately dry flavor. Just a bit of tartness on the back end. The spices and tartness are held remarkably in check which is one of the main reasons that I somewhat enjoy this. The cranberry addition is a bit strange but it doesnít really bother me. Not as tart as Kick and easily more sessionable. Pretty easy to drink and probably chuggable.
