Description from the bottle:
“What’s 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 it’s the cranberries and touch of lemongrass that’ll have you hunt and pecking for more.” -New Belgium
Well done! Years ago I was very keen on the Pumpkin beer made by Huntsville’s Old Town Brewery which is no longer with us.
I can say that PUMPKICK is the best pumpkin beer I’ve had since then. It smells just like pumpkin pie and I like that it’s 6% alcohol. The flavors are very well balanced, not too sweet or spicy and the pumpkin taste is subtle. I’m very in tune with seasonal flavors so I may wait until Thanksgiving to drink this again because it’s a very Fall beer and the leaves have not yet begun to fall.
