COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Whats 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 its the cranberries and touch of lemongrass that send your tastebuds sailing.

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.

Tasted from a 12oz brown bottle into tulip glass. It poured a hazy deep orange amber colour with weak white foam, some lace. An odd blend of caramelly malts, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, citrus, and subtle cranberry tartness. I love lemongrass in beer, but I couldnt really detect it here. I dont know if this is fermented with a Belgian yeast, but the spices meld nicely and give a similar impression, particularly the nutmeg. Light body, spritzy carbonation, a subtle alcoholic warmth crept up on me. Interesting and well-crafted. Good stuff.

Sampled at esbls. Orangish and just a little hazy. A pumpkin aroma and flavor. Little spice. More would help. Decent.

Long-lasting thin head. Golden yellow. Decent nose. Interesting take on a pumpkin ale with its slight cranberry tang. Easily drinkable.

Essence of gingerbread, amber with very thick creamy head. Else its not as rich as some of the other fall pumpkin beers Ive tried recently. Not bad, but not great.

Very clean and enjoyable pumpkin beer. Pour is orange to lite amber with a full off white head. Aroma is nice; malty with a touch of spice. Over all flavors and lite and pleasant but still have enough off the pumpkin and spices to remind you of the fall.

This is a quite tasty pumpkin beer. Its nicely balanced, and the pumpkin sweetness is offset by the spices and tartness of the cranberry. Very tasty and goes down smooth. Definitely enjoyed this one!

Draught. Pours an orange-amber color with a smallish white head on it. Nose is pretty much what you expect, with your average pumpkin spice palate coming through. Taste was slightly sweet with the spices coming through, but seemed remarkably boring. Meh.

Passthebeer (30) - Manassas, Virginia, USA - SEP 24, 2013
The tasted is over spiced and the cranberry they added to be "different" give this ale a puckering taste not suitable for pumpkin ales

On draft at 2013 Tour de Fat in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. New Belgium Brewery puts on this fundraiser every year to benefit the SF Bicycle Coalition and Bay Trails. New Belgium donates the beer and we enjoy a day of music, fun, and sun in GG Park. The beer is OK. Spice ales are not one of my favorite styles, but this was better than average.
