Nice deep amber upon pouring, with an average-sized head of white foam. Attractive fence-row-lattice lace.

Nose is spices, cinnamon, allspice, brown sugar, and of course pumpkin. Little trace of the cranberry here, easily overwhelmed by the spice and pumpkin. Nice.

Taste - Mild pumpkin and spice, with a hint of tart cranberry underneath it all. It’s a well-balanced mix, and Pumpkick is an easy-to-drink, light-bodied pumpkin ale that maybe isn’t huge or overwhelming, but is quite drinkable and one I’d easily purchase again.

Pours a beautiful deep golden-brown-orange color. Hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. Decent head and lacing. Too much spice and it took away from the pumpkin flavor which was hard to distinguish. Ok, but not one of their best !

A ton of cinnamon and nutmeg. No pumpkin.
I can only drink half of a glass before I am dreading my next sip. Good thing this is only a seasonal. Rare miss for New Belgium.
Pours like a brown ale. Nice deep color.
Nose is very Spivey with strong cinnamon. Gave me hope for good things to come.
The mouth is somewhat thick. Not terrible by itself.
Taste: see above
Serving type: bottle
