COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

"I enjoyed this one. Lighter but flavorful and aromatic blend. Nose is mostly spices and lemongrass, cinnamon on the front. Odd combo but it begs for another whiff. Flavor the cranberry comes out as slightly sweet and tart, but the spices are still up front. Pumpkin is light. A welcome addition to the fall lineups."

Bottle pour. Pours a thin copper color. A lot of Chai and pumpkin spice aroma. Flavor is sweet pumpkin pie with some spice in there too. Decent beer. Flavorful. Good stuff.

Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - Abercorn St. - 12 oz bottle. Pours a deep dark copper, quickly fading off-white head. Solid spicy aroma with pumpkin pie spice and some ripening vegetable notes. Flavor has a nice punch to it with pumpkin pie spice, some light cinnamon and nutmeg.

BuckeyeBoy (2863) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 30, 2014
12oz bottle pours out a nice copper topped with a white head. Nose is full of pumpkin spice, nutmeg, and some sweetness. Taste is as the nose with more of the spice notes and less of the pumpkin. Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg.

Rated from notes taken 21 Sep 2013 -- I was a little disappointed by this brew from New Belgium, probably had higher expectations than I normally do from Pumpkin Brews.

Tap, orange-red pour with a white head, sweet taste of pumpkin and some pumpkin pie spice, it is a little thin, I was expecting a little more from this one but it is okay enough for a fall seasonal
