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.

Great sessionable beer from New Belgium. Tartness from the cranberry juice makes the beer finish dry and can’t wait to get another sip. Another great NBB seasonal!

Above average pumpkin beer (draft). Do not notice cranberry at all, which is odd considering the advertisement. Overall quality addition to the genre.

Welcome fall weather! This one pours a bubbly orangy amber - almost pumpkin! - with a fluffy and rather fine-bubbled pale buff head. Malty aroma has a strong, but not overpowering, pumpkin note and hints of cinnamon, yeast, nutmeg and, yes, cranberry. Flavor fills the mouth with pumpkin, cranberry, nutmeg, cinnamon, hints of yeast and malt - and is that lemongrass? Each sip seems a little different. Smooth texture has plenty of fizz and a fair amount of viscosity; it leaves a nice pumpkin-pie finish. If you like pumpkin beers, you should get a kick out of this one.

Solid pumpkin. Strong pumpkin and nutmeg notes. Cranberry comes in underneath, contributing a slight sweetness. Good.

Pours orange with a medium white head. Smells like pumpkin pie and mild cranberry fruitiness. Taste is pumpkin, spices, and mild tartness. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and mild mouth-carbonation, New Belgium Pumpkick finishes with a hint of tart lemon.

Out of the bottle and into a frosty glass, this brew poured great with a good head. Aroma is sweet and the taste is even better with pumpkin and hints of nutmeg. New Belgium nailed this pumpkin brew. Love the mild sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy amber with a finger of fluffy off-white head. Aroma is malts and pumpkin. Taste is pretty much oktoberfest, pumpkin, and a nice cranberry tartness at the finish. This was much better than I expected.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 Great autumn beer, with strong pumpkin notes. Easy to drink and not too heavy overall.

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.
