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.

Draft at Franklin Tap. Pumpkin pie smell is a little light; not as big on the nose as the Cisco pumpkin beer I had earlier. Deep autumnal orange color, thin head. It does have a pumpkin taste at the start, then spices build as I sip. The spice masks an overall sweetness like a bit of molasses, and kept me from guessing there was a tart fruit addition as well. Instead, I started to detect a bit of roastiness that might have come from the pumpkin, but now I see they used pumpkin "juice." Mild on the alcohol, but pretty filling. I would never mistake it for something besides a pumpkin pie beer, Iím pretty sure.

pours a clear golden amber. Aromas of all spice, nutmeg, a touch of pumpkin. Nice spicy taste with pumpkin notes.

11/16/15. 12oz bottle from Five Points. Amber orange pour with a small khaki head. Spiced pumpkin beer aroma, not as over the top as some, with a vanilla kick saving it a little. Vanilla pops nicely in the flavor as well, pie spices, not getting much of the cranberry and lemongrass. Not bad. Better than I was expecting.

Pours a cloudy rusty orange color with white head. The body is light and not a big fan of the tartness

Pours golden with a bright white head that leaves very nice lacing. Smells like nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavor is pretty good - I like the pumpkin pie flavors. The cranberry can go, though. I think it detracts from the overall taste. Still a decent Thanksgiving beer (that Iím drinking on New Yearís Eve - go figure that one out for yourself).

sour, malty with lots of cinammon. Not that great. Over spiced and not balanced

Pours a hazy Amber color wth lots of chunks floating throughout the beer. There is a medium off white head that left plenty of lacing around the glass. The aroma is pumpkin, cranberries, lots of vegetable aroma. I pick up some spices as well. In the taste, you pick up the pumpkin flavor but it isn't overly sweet and there is some spices noted as well. It finishes rather sweet like as if it was pumpkin pie. The cranberries are noticed up front with a little bit of bitterness.

Well that was interesting. Really fruity taste. Probably the cranberry or whatever but seriously this is out there. Pretty much a spiced cider made of beer stuff. Easily the easiest drinking pumpkin beer Iíve had.

Smells like slightly spiced pumpkin, not like pumpkin pie. Slight haze on a light brownish orange ale. Initially it does have a slight undesirable pumpkin spice to it but the cranberry tartness makes it a little more acceptable. Yes, almost makes me think it comes across a little wild. Just enough tartness to tart it up but not enough to make it artificial. Not too bad for a pumpkin beer. Iím not one to enjoy punky beers but this was not too unacceptable.

Sampled at the brewery, 11/24/15. Clear orange color with an off white head. Lots of pumpkin pie type spice here with some underlying malt notes as well. Nice pumpkin overall.

355ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is pumpkin with nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste is a light tartness with the nutmeg and cinnamon and a fruity and malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with some modest carbonation. Overall, I found this brew to have a nice balance of flavor. Enjoyable and easy drinking.
