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.

Great sessionable beer from New Belgium. Tartness from the cranberry juice makes the beer finish dry and cant wait to get another sip. Another great NBB seasonal!

Smells great as you pour from the bottle. Nice amber color. Complex flavor with spices and pumpkin nicely complicated by tart cranberries. Tastes great!

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.

Above average pumpkin beer (draft). Do not notice cranberry at all, which is odd considering the advertisement. Overall quality addition to the genre.

Welcome fall weather! This one pours a bubbly orangy amber - almost pumpkin! - with a fluffy and rather fine-bubbled pale buff head. Malty aroma has a strong, but not overpowering, pumpkin note and hints of cinnamon, yeast, nutmeg and, yes, cranberry. Flavor fills the mouth with pumpkin, cranberry, nutmeg, cinnamon, hints of yeast and malt - and is that lemongrass? Each sip seems a little different. Smooth texture has plenty of fizz and a fair amount of viscosity; it leaves a nice pumpkin-pie finish. If you like pumpkin beers, you should get a kick out of this one.

Solid pumpkin. Strong pumpkin and nutmeg notes. Cranberry comes in underneath, contributing a slight sweetness. Good.

DATE: October 2, 2016... OCCASION: a good weekend finishes with an October-worthy brew... GLASSWARE: Schneider Edel-Weisse pokal... pours a nearly opaque, medium amber body that bubbles convivially from its base... head is soapy, white and bubbly as well... lacing arcs and streams....the immediate "kick" of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice, as the label promises, is full... pumpkin spice and cookie dough make for a dessert suggestion, as does some subtle ginger... vibrant palate activates the tongue, with a medium-bodied presence that drinks amiably... the cranberries add a tartness that makes this a slightly puckering, warming finish... this drinks wonderfully well for a beer with this much to unpack... some citrus hints blend with cookie malts to balance a robust profile--quite a treat... enough uniqueness here to carve its own niche in the season...

Pours orange with a medium white head. Smells like pumpkin pie and mild cranberry fruitiness. Taste is pumpkin, spices, and mild tartness. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and mild mouth-carbonation, New Belgium Pumpkick finishes with a hint of tart lemon.

Out of the bottle and into a frosty glass, this brew poured great with a good head. Aroma is sweet and the taste is even better with pumpkin and hints of nutmeg. New Belgium nailed this pumpkin brew. Love the mild sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
