What’s 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 it’s the cranberries and touch of lemongrass that send your tastebuds sailing.

fraternie (916) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Appealing for the style, with a sweet caramel malt and flavors of pumpkin pie that hold a complexity advantage over this genre for the most part, but as all these do, it turns a bit too sweet through the finish, and more than one would be rough.

Bottle pour. Pours a clear copper with a white head. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger aroma. Sweeter spicy taste. Lighter body. Medium carbonation.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home while watching Bears vs. Packers after a 5 mile run on a gorgeous late September afternoon. Appearance is a bright light cloudy golden orange/brown with a rich frothy white head and considerable carbonation. Aroma is very fresh, nice nutmeg and cinnamon notes, as well as light tart from the cranberries. Taste is very unqiue, interesting mixture of pumpkin and cranberry, I can see this being a quintessential Thanksgiving beer. Would have again.

Poured a dark amber with no head. Soft sweet pumpkin spice aroma. Very sweet and tart flavor with a nice balance of cranberry flavor and spices. Medium body and goes down smooth. A decent branch off of the pumpkin line.

Reddish orange with no head. Delicious aroma of pumpkin, apple juice, and cinnamon. Flavor is exactly what I would expect from the aroma. Also has a green apple tartness on the finish. Light bodied and low carbonation.

chinchill (3127) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 23, 2014
12 oz 2014 bottle with a BB date stamp of Jan. 2015. Quite a bit more spicing in the flavor than I get in the aroma. I see this has lemongrass and cranberries too -- these may create the cloudy aromatics. The odd combinations works well in tasting but, with some tartness and lemongrass, this is not your standard pumpkin ale. Lively, medium-high carbonation befitting the light body. O: Pleaseant and intersting beer: interesting for both the unusual flavor profile and the mismatch between aroma and flavor.

amber color; pumpkin pie aroma - although not as overwhelmng as most pumpkin beers; flavor is pretty much pumpkin pie: pumpkin with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg; I didn’t detect the cranberry juice; still not a fan of pumpkin beers, but not bad

hopmelt (196) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Pours slightly cloudy, medium orange, finger or so creamy of white head, good amount of lacing. Aroma sweet spice, fruity, allspice, slight pumpkin and cinnamon, can definitely detect sweet cranberry. Taste sweet, fruity, slightly tart cranberry, cinnamon and allspice, very faint pumpkin and doughy malt. Mouthfeel medium body, lower carbonation, sweet finish. Overall tasty beer, interesting take, drinks like a cider.

Onslow (1273) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear brownish amber brew, slightly tan head, aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon and other pumpkin spices. Taste is sweetish malty at the start with upfront fruity tartness - maybe some pumpkin sweetness in there - spice emerging in the middle and at the end mostly just the tart fruitiness. The tartness really is there form start to finish. It manages to be pumpkin and spice while still being refreshing.

Spice is good, sweet pumpkin not found, crisp clean flavor, cloudy orange color, nice autumn beer
