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.

Not impressed! It looks nice but the addition of cranberry juice was a miss. I think the juice overwhelmed the taste and the aroma of the spices. It also muddles the pumpkin.

355ml brown bottle. Clearish golden with white foam. Nose has cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, sweet and pie-like. Taste has cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin. Light cranberry-lemon note of bitterness at the end. Interesting pumpkin brew, really enjoyable.

12oz bottle. A bit thin and slightly bitter for the style - not getting the sweetness others noted, relative to other pumpkin brews; my wife did not approve... I liked the cranberry addition though. Medium bodied with medium to full carbonation.

Keyaki. Spicy, bit too sweet for me. Itís alright, but I donít quite get regular pumpkin beers so not surprised it doesnít do much for me. Itís my fault, not the beerís.

New Belgianís pumpkin beer is a departure from the norm in the world of pumpkin beers. At first blush the hazy brown pour an ring of off-white head seem familiar, but a whaft of fresh pumpkin meat, rather than pumpkin pie spices, shows a different approach. The pumpkin itself takes center stage, while nutmeg and allspice follow on afterwards. The cranberry component shows itself as a rather tart dry finish.

Pours a hazy orange amber color with a thick tan head that slowly dissipates and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is pumpkin, and allspice. Taste has the same pumpkin flavor with mild spice profile. Finish is semi-sweet with a slight tartness of fruit that gives a little kick.
