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.

There is a dominance in the aroma of nutmeg, Cinnamon, and other spices. There is a touch of lemon in the aroma as well. It has a light orange and golden color to it. The head is medium bodied and white. It has a pleasant blend of nutmeg and spices that dominate the pumpkin and cranberry hints.

jgb9348 (5816) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 26, 2016
Crisp light amber body with a copper glow and a funky, large-bubbled off-white head about a centimetre tall. Aroma of grain, alcohol, light spices and a touch of caramel - not too pungent at all. Light to Medium-bodied; Slightly funky flavour of yeast and grain with a little spices and a touch of sweetness from caramelised sugars. Aftertaste is relatively bland with only a bit of earth and spices noticeable along with a faint kick of earth and squash. Overall, a pretty mediocre beer with not much flavours around and especially not anything worthwhile. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Trader Joes in Falls Church, Virginia on 30-September-2016 for US$1,67 sampled at home in Upstate (New Paltz), New York on 25-November-2016.

A very nice pumpkin beer. Pours a pretty bright cloudy orange with a white head. Smells of pumpkin, cinnamon, lemongrass. Taste is much more lemony, with more pumpkin, cinnamon, a bit of cucumber. Had on tap at Green Dragon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear bright amber color with a small white head. The aroma is pumpkin, cranberries and spices. The taste is very similar to the nose. A solid pumpkin ale.

Orange Amber with thin Lacy beige head; aroma is spicy and mildly fruity cranberry; flava is spicy nutmeggy and tart cranberry notes; feels light to medium with decent fizzy zing; finishes slightly tangy and grainy

Hazy, amber, tall, orangy fluffy head. Light body, flavorful, low heat, lean but vibrant mouthfeel, avg length. Crisp, sweetness disguised by acidity, slight bitterness which gets pronounced at the finish, interesting balance. Delicious sweet-spices flavor, pumpkin, tobacco. Very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tan head. Light brown, spicy. Little tart flavor. Draught at a bar. Great beer to drink in an airport.

This is the PERFECT pumpkin gose type beer. No, its it officially a gose, but its cranberry flavor is much more reminiscent of a tart wheat beer than a typical pumpkin selection and the pumpkin flavor is just present enough to keep it a pumpkin beer.

Bottle from Meijer poured into a pint glass, orange with a bit of white head. Aroma of pumpkin spice is nicer than the watery bland taste. There are a whole lot of pumpkin ales and stouts out there far above this product.

I was a little concerned about the ingredients but they complimented each other very well. Cheers! Tasted by Cannery Row Beer Club. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Bierstube. Hazy orange amber with a minimal top. Vibrant pumpkin brew. Actually tasting real pumpkin here. The expected spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, clove) is present but not too far forward. The tart cranberry is a nice touch. Hints of black tea, lemongrass and hibiscus. Aroma is a bit blunted. Palate is a bit watery. But flavors are great.
