look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

P: Fuzzy pale orange body with loads of floaters. Looks similar to pond water but lighter. No head formation but did have an off white swirly wake on top.

S: Good pumpkin aroma, metal, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cranberry sauce.

T/M: The spicy pumpkin that is present in the aroma is now shadowed by a big dose of sweet and bitter cranberry. It almost has a vinegar bite to it and interrupts the warming sensation of your typical pumpkin offering. The pumpkin and spices come through for a brief moment then are again masked by an intense metallic taste. Bitter baking cocoa in the midst of this flip flop of flavors. Light to medium body with prickly carbonation.

O: Let me say that I appreciate and understand the concept behind this brew but I really can say it works for me. The cranberry is interesting but ruins the roasty and rich pumpkin and spice flavors expected in a pumpkin beer. This is not anything I would ever purchase again but it wasnt totally horrible considering the take on the style. Again I applaud New Belgium for stepping outside the box. Cheers!
