A very clean smooth beer. Not too heavy on the pumpkin or spices and a very slight hint of tartness at the end from the cranberry. This is one I could sit and drink a 6 pack of no problem. A perfect beer for the fall in Colorado.

Keyaki. Spicy, bit too sweet for me. It’s alright, but I don’t quite get regular pumpkin beers so not surprised it doesn’t do much for me. It’s my fault, not the beer’s.

New Belgian’s 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.
