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.

12oz bottle poured into my Elysian Night Owl Pumpkin tulip glass. Pours a clear orange copper color With a medium to thin white head that lraves light lacing. Smells of pumpkin, spices, lemongrass, and cinnamon. Tastes of all the same things in the smell but with a lingering cranberry/lemongrass tartness in the backend. Mouthfeel is meduim bodied with light carbonation and a slightly dry finish. I was really excited when I saw this. I ended up being sort of let down. Not bad but could have been done much better and had more carbonation. It also needed a little more pumpkin and spice flavors. I Might pick up a 6 pack if its the right price but won’t be seeking it out again.

Panzuriel (1362) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2014
12 oz bottle from a six pack purchased at meijer in westerville Ohio. Pumpkick is a clear, dark copper colored beer with a firm head of white bubbles. Nose is a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg with a good amount of earthy pumpkin in the background. Taste is a clean crisp pumpkin flavor that has the aspects of spice and the cranberry tartness come through on the back end. very well balanced. nothing really leads out too much. Body is somewhat lively but also very smooth. one of the better pumpkin beers on the market.

liquidhedonism (185) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - NOV 26, 2014
12 oz bottle. Aroma: doughy, with strong fall spices. Taste/Palate: thin, crisp, astringent, and slightly sweet. Pretty boring pumpkin ale offering.

julesjis (151) - Oregon, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Poured from a 12. Color is a orangish amber. Aroma is definitely pumpkin pie spice like. Flavor is sweet and tart, almost like a lemony pumpkin. The spices are there but they are almost completely overtaken by the tartness in the flavor but not in the aroma.

jbruner (2507) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Pours a clear golden brown on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave light lace. Aroma is pumpkin spice up front, hint of the cranberry tartness on the back end, sweet malt middle. Taste follows, just a nice blend of the spice and faint fruity tartness. Could be way worse, but a nice change from the typical pumpkin beer.

12oz bottle 10/31/14 (Binny’s Naperville Mix a Six)-42° in Lager Glass-Pours a clear light amber . Aroma of pumpkin and spices. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty.

GG (2326) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 31, 2014
12oz bottle - To say I’m disappointed in this beer would be pretty accurate. I’m always down for a new spiced/pumpkin beer for Fall, but this one seemed pedestrian. Aroma is kept under tight wraps with light cinnamon/nutmeg/clove combo. Flavors of clove, allspice, some light cranberry essence with a thin palate and slightly astringent. Almost overly-attenuated to the point where I’m looking for just a hint of sweetness to help support the spices used. It finishes crisp, but falls short of being something truly outstanding. Another beer that falls flat from New Belgium.

Darwenus (568) - Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Copper color. Thin head. Smells like Fat Tire, with ginger and nutmeg. Tastes like that too, and cinnamon and allspice. The pumpkin in the flavor actually tastes like real pumpkin rather than artificial. Still not my kind of thing but not bad.

joet (2228) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Beautiful in the glass, deep copper orange hued, lasting ivory foam, very aromatic, clove and cinnamon, citric limes, undifferentiated fruit, apples, berries, is there pumpkin in this? slightly acidic, light medium body, barely any creaminess there, light medium effervescence, finishes with a touch of herbal alkaloidal bitterness.
