2.91/5  rDev -16.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

An ambery-orange body with a modest white head that dissipates into a thin yet lingering covering of bubbly white foam.

Smells of allspice and sweet caramel with a faint hint of nutmeg. A bit sweeter than what the style typically is, and too much so to be enjoyed.

Caramel malts are a little too heavy on the front of the tongue, as are the cranberries on the back. Leaves a relatively unpleasant resin at the back of the mouth. Seems even more unbalanced as the beer warms: too malty, which is interesting given the fact it isn't a brown.

A slight under-carbonation leads to a slimy and oily feel.

I am a little confused by this beer and what NBB is going for. I wouldn't suggest spending your weekly beer money on this season.

12 oz bottle poured into New Belgium globe. Appearance is a bright pumpkin orange color with nice clarity, velvety white head with heavy lacing a nice retention. Nose starts with heavy fleshy pumpkin character that comes off in a vegetal way. Mild notes of allspice and clove follow that and not much cranberry character to speak of, maybe a tinge of cran tartness at the finish. Taste is very nondescript in terms of pumpkin character. There is a wave of light cranberry tartness that seems to neutralize the pumpkin spices. The spice picks up a bit towards the finish with allspice being the most prominent note. The flavors are a little muddled which seems to make this beer lacking in the flavor department. Mouthfeel is light and well carbonated. Overall, this is a very mild flavored pumpkin ale and he cranberry doesn't come through in that thanksgiving dinner kind of way. Come to think of it, I'm not really sure why cranberry is being paired with pumpkin in the first place... It works with turkey and stuffing, but can't say I've ever really paired it with pumpkin pie. But I digress, this one is very forgettable.

First out of the chute for the pumpkin beers this year.

Orange and slightly hazy, little head, sparse lace.

Aroma is pumpkin pie spices, nutmeg, clove, allspice, a little cinnamon. Flavor follows, not a lot of really pumpkin flavor, but more the spices from pie. Cranberries are detectable but not overpowering.

Body is mildly to medium carbed, good for the style, with a medium body and a malty, spicy finish.

Overall it's not a bad pumpkin beer at all. Not my fav, but pretty tasty.

It's fucking August and not only is this out, but nearly sold out at my local. I hate beer.

Best by 01DEC13

Amber with a solid quilt of near bone white foam. Smells of allspice, cranberry juice, some grain and plenty more cranberries, but sweet. Too bad the cranberries aren't more like Serendipity - that was a yummy beer. Flavor is malt, mild spice, raisin, sweet, muddled overall and kinda bland....even for a pumpkin beer. Medium bodied with light carb and a wet finish. This beer was subpar.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Apperance: Pours a medium amber with an off white head that fades quickly, chunky lace on the glass.

Smell: Cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice; typical of the pumpkin style beers. I do get some pumpkin and a surprising tartness, ostensibly the cranberry. Reminds me of thanksgiving.

Taste: Spicy with a bit of pumpkin but not too much, which I like in a pumpkin beer. The tart flavor of cranberry comes through in the finish. The malt brings a nice sweetness too.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and easy drinking with a bready mouthfeel but not too filling. Could use a bit more body perhaps.

Overall: This is by no means great, but my expectations were pretty low. This is a pretty good fall seasonal that I will likely buy a couple more bottles of.

Got this as part of a mixed sixer, BBD date of 22 Dec 13

Pours an effervescent & slightly hazed orange/caramel with a thumb of cram colored head. Slightly better than average head retention & lacing

S: Big-time pumpkin pie spicyness

T: Follows the nose, a touch of cranberry tartness up front. More cranberry & too much spice as this warms, plus a bit of lemon juice. Finishes thin with cranberry tartness

MF: Light bodies with lively carbonation

This had some flavors that might've panned out had it not been so thin & devoid of body.
New Belgium has really let me down lately, this is one to avoid, a bad example of a style that has plenty of clunkers

12 oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe.
6% ABV, serve at 45°F best by 15DEC13

A - Bright and clear bronzed amber in color, Pumpkick has a towering ivory head that cakes the glass in lace as it slowly descends.

S - Totally evocative of fall, the aroma is ripe with roasted pumpkin and a myriad of the classic spices from cinnamon and clove to nutmeg and allspice, the latter two posturing the most. Earthy hop notes and sweet caramel malt care underlying but it's hard to smell any cranberry in this pumpkin beer.

T - Surprisingly crisp and clean, the malt base adds little sweetness to this drinkable fall beer opting for the continued forward presence of spice which is trailed closely by pumpkin rind and a suggestion of tart cranberry skin.

M - Easy drinking due to it's lighter body, Pumpkick has a crisp and clean finish that feels more like a lager as it lingers with delicate spice and even more delicate cranberry tartness on the tongue.

O - The presence of the pumpkin and spice is top-notch in Pumpkick, really landing in a flavorful-yet-drinkable zone that's perfect for it's late fall release - not too heavy or sweet but just right. Without a doubt, one of my go-to fall beers this year.

I picked up a twelve pack of New Belgium's Pumpkick last week for $13.99 at Meijers. It's a little too early for Pumpkin beers, but I always like to try beers as fresh as possible so i'm not going to wait till October to give this a try, so lets see how it goes. Best by December 1st 2013. Poured from a brown 12oz bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A- The label looks good, it's got a picture of a scared Jack O lantern being launched in the air, I would say it does a good job at sticking out. It poured a pretty clear orange/amber color that took on a darker orange and burnt orange color when held to the light with three fingers worth of fluffy white head that died down to a thin ring that stayed till the end and left lots of patchy lacing behind. This is a good looking beer, i have no complaints.

S- The aroma starts off with a higher amount of medium sweetness followed by some pumpkin aromas that impart a nice meaty and natural pumpkin aroma that's followed by the typical pumpkin pie spices with nutmeg seeming to stick out the most. After that I get a slight tart fruit aroma that i'm assuming is from the cranberry's, but it's not that noticeable. There's just a slight bit of bready malts and doughy yeast coming through but other than that the malt base hardly shows up. The aroma was nice, the natural pumpkin showed up nicely and the spices weren't too overpowering.

T- The taste seems to be somewhat similar to the aroma and it starts off with a medium amount of sweetness followed by some malts that are very grainy tasting with only a slight bready flavor. Up next comes a real light meaty pumpkin flavor with a lighter amount of pumpkin pie spices the still seem to overpower the natural pumpkin flavor with nutmeg sticking out the most. Next comes a light fruity flavor with a slight amount of cranberry just barely coming through and imparting the lowest possible amount of tartness. On the finish there's pretty much no bitterness with a very grainy and medium pumpkin pie spice aftertaste. The taste was decent, but the grainy malts seems to really stick out with the pumpkin pie and cranberry flavors coming up short.

M- Smooth, a little watery, on the light side of being medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation.

Overall I thought this was an ok beer, and a fairly average example of the style, the aroma was going in the right direction, but when it got to the taste all the malt aspects that were missing in the aroma showed up in the taste a little too much so pushing the flavors that were supposed to be showcased into the background. This beer had decent drinkability, it was smooth and not filling, but the taste didn't do a great job at holding my attention, one would be enough for me, but if I was offered a few of these I could probably dink them but I don't think I would enjoy them that much. What I liked the most about this beer was the appearance and aroma, they were both nice and the highlights of this beer. What I liked least about this beer was the mouthfeel, it was pretty bland with not much life to it. I wouldn't buy this beer again, 12 is enough for me for the season and I think I'll save one or two of these for October to see if my opinion has changed. I wouldn't recommend this as a good Pumpkin beer, it's priced nicely, but it's not really a bang for your buck. All in all I wasn't impressed with this beer and when it comes to Pumpkin beers it falls right in the middle, it wasn't great or memorable by any means but there wasn't anything offensive about it. New Belgium is a pretty solid brewery, but I think they missed the mark with this one and I would like it better if the pumpkin and cranberry flavors were highlighted more, better luck next time guys.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: A pretty hazy medium copper beer with an orange hue. My head is a thin raft of long lasting off-white bubbles but I don't know if how the glassware was cleaned could be at fault.

S: Medium pumpkin and caramel malt with some bread malt and spices supporting. There is a moderate fruit ester that much like the spice is complimentary and not oblivious as to the origin.

T: The malt and spice take the led at a moderate level with a blend of pumpkin, crystal malt and some fruit close behind. Some of the lemongrass and cranberry flavors a distinguishable with a light tartness. The spice and some hops bitterness provide the balance against the low malt sweetness. It's a dry beer with a dry finish and a spice aftertaste that mixes with some fruit and pumpkin.

M: Medium bodied with a strong level of carbonation.

O: A good example of a spice, herb, veg beer. A bit more to offer than the typical pumpkin with some interesting additions; I like that neither the spice nor malt took over to overwhelmed the flavors.

Appearance - burnt orange color coming out of the bottle with very little head on the pour.Lacy does not exist at all.

Smell - I get a bunch of nutmeg and cranberry in the smell

Taste - light cinnamon to begin with some nutmeg and pumpkin. There is a cran kick at the end for sure.

Mouthfeel -nothing outstanding, but very light and sessionable

Overall - this is a fun fall seasonal for sure. Could have called it cran kick. Fun session beer, but I would only drink in the fall. Reminds me of jumping into a pile of leaves

Poured from the bottle into my DFH Tulip, to capture the nose better.

A - Pours a clear, burnt orange, with a somewhat chunky 1-finger-head, that dissipates rather quickly, leaving behind a pretty decent amount of lacing that hangs on well.

S - Hints of pumpkin spice, such as nutmeg, and bits of allspice. The malts make an appearance, covering up any hint of the ABV that might be present in this 6% beer.
No cranberry or Lemongrass present, however; this beer hides all the fancy adjuncts well, on the nose. Honestly not too shocked by the aroma, seeing as it smells just like every other mediocre pumpkin ale out there. And why in the seven hells are breweries already releasing fall beers, when it's only August??? Don't they know it's still hotter than Satan's taint here in Texas???

T - Crisp, and smooth, with the spice leading the way. The cranberry DOES add a nice little nip of tartness, and the lemongrass also kicks in a tiny bit of herbal notes, hiding the almost tiny note of hops that likely went into this beer. (Can we say Noble hop varietals, kids??? Not earthy enough to be Styrian Goldings, or Fuggles.) Decent, but once again, nothing to make it stand apart from all the other pumpkin beers out there. Might make a decent pumpkin ale ice cream, though. (If that sounds good, I have a badass recipe I'd be glad to share, although I usually use DFH Punkin or Rogue.)
Meh.

M - Not heavy at all. Decent carbonation. A little lactose sugar might not have hurt this brew, and helped to make it stand out a bit more. Smooth, and easy to drink.
Once again, Meh.

O - Not a terrible experience, but not an amazing one either. This beer delivers what the label promises, at least. In a world full of up-and-coming breweries who push the envelope with fall seasonal / Pumpkin beers, this one stands right in the middle of the road for me. With monsters like Southern Tier Warlock & Pumpking, Saint Arnold Pumpkinator, Rogue Pumpkin Patch, and DFH Punkin out there, this one is decent, but not mind-blowing. However; if you want a pumpkin beer that is light and easy to drink, that also packs a decent punch that just might club you over the head, and then take your wallet when you aren't looking, give it a try. You might not be too impressed, but you won't necessarily be let down either. Cheers!

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Alright, is there some place where I can get a bottle (or can or carton or whatever) of pumpkin juice? Am I missing something? I didn't even know you could juice a pumpkin... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear auburn-bronze topped by a finger of off-cream foam. The nose comprises white toast, a pinch of clove, a half-pinch of cinnamon, a half-dash of brown sugar, mild caramel, and a strange mini-undertow of what seems like chicken gravy. The taste brings in more of the same, with the spices all blending together into a muddled stream of near-nothingness that culminates in a gulf of rather hard water. This also serves to water down the caramel a bit. Still no sign of the cranberry (though there is a tinge in the back of the finish, but that could just be psychosomatic). The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slick feel. Overall, a pretty meek little beer, one that not only doesn't bring the spice, but one that doesn't really try to express itself in much of any way. Boo this.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Clear, light copper with a thick 3-finger head of tenacious foam head; lacing was good when the head finally subsided.

S: Grain, fresh hay, allspice, white pepper, and a slightly fruity aroma that I don't recognize (but I'm pretty sure pumpkin doesn't come to mind).

T: Malt is more grain than sweet. There's a fair amount of tart fruit (citrus, and maybe a little bite from the cranberries they list on the label), but not much that I'd identify with pumpkin. Start to finish, the pumpkin pie spices are there without overpowering. But the experience suffers from a watered down flavor, like they mixed in an extra 20% water to make it go further.

M: Moist, decently carbonated, but pretty thin.

O: Not bad, but there was no "kick" as the label suggested. A higher ratio of malt and pumpkin to water may have elevated this from forgettable to truly tasty. It's a shame.

$2 single bottle poured into a mini-pint glass that's probably 8oz or something...

Appearance: Orange. A finger of a half soapy, half creamy head that's about eggshell colored.

Smell: Highly vegetative to me... really smells of brined vegetables. If I weren't told this were a pumpkin beer, I probably wouldn't guess it right away. Pumpkin and spices are there in the background, for me. Not all that appealing.

Taste: Heavy pumpkin right away with spice, and then a tartness (not specifically getting a cranberry flavor), and then it's basically just gone. The aftertaste is malt with the pumpkin pie sort of spices, and it's also where the cranberry flavor comes through a bit. The carbonation is light/medium, and the feel is quite a bit lighter than I thought it might be. Doesn't drink as big as I was expecting it to.

It's alright. It's different than typical pumpkin ales, and I'm okay with that. I like the tartness in this beer, though I barely get a hint of a fruit flavor, and it all tastes rather mild overall. Relatively forgettable, though I'd probably choose this over some of the super spicy pumpkin beers out there.

Pours a nicely carbed light orange hue.

Pumpkin, baking spices, and a slight tart aroma.

Cinnamon and nutmeg, with a subtle pumpkin sweetness.

Light-bodied, low-medium carbonation.

Overall, an easy drinking pumpkin ale.

Pumpkick pours a dark reddish color with a small but lacing head. There is a strong pumpkin and nutmeg aroma. The taste has a strong pumpkin and nutmeg flavor, with just hints of sweetness and tartness from the cranberries. Great full body, nice strong complex flavors. Overall a fantastic and fruity pumpkin ale.

A: has a nice half inch quickly dissipating foamy white head, with a great clear copper tinged golden color.
S:different from any other pumpkin ale I've tried, can still smell the spices of any other pumpkin ale - the cinnamon, nutmeg and whatever else they use but has this odd sweetness, probably from the cranberries that highlights the aromas quite nicely.
T:pretty good once you get past the carbonation, you get more of the cranberry than desired which isn't a bad thing....but not welcoming either....
M: ahhh waaay tooo carbonated!! ick! almost tastes like a champagne, very tingly on the tongue with bubblyness
O.A. don't know what i'm gonna do with the other 2 bottles I have, glad I was able to split it with someone, wish I could had split it with 2 people....

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: A thin white head of small white bubbles rests atop a body the color of burnished gold. Small islands of lacing forms to the glass but only a few bubbles stay. The body has very good transparency.

S: It smells like cooked pumpkin. Not the spices of pumpkin pie, but more specifically the pumpkin. If you've ever just cooked pumpkin you'll recognize it. I'll probably sound crazy for saying this but it smells like the drippings from an oven cooked turkey as well...a bit of clove comes through and that probably contributes a good deal, but it's more than that. That's just how it smells to me. Mostly it's very muted when it comes to scents though. Again it doesn't really smell like the "standard" pumpkin pie spice smell of pumpkin beers.

T: There is very little flavor here and it is highly disappointing. There is a hint of light earthy flavor and extremely mild hop bitterness. I pick up a hint of what might be cinnamon but it's not worth even trying to identify it at this point. The label says it's brewed with cranberry juice...I have to call them out on that one because I don't taste it all. The spices are barely there, the beer itself hangs around like a wallflower, and the flavor of pumpkin (as weak as it is) is stronger than anything else. It's just off-balanced and not pleasant tasting.

M: The mouthfeel is nearly there. It's very light and thin, but the mild hop bitterness contributes positively to the mouthfeel. I would say that they need to increase the mouthfeel, but they are dead on with bitterness. Carbonation feels right too, but again the beer is too thin.

O: I would not feel honest if I rated this beer at anything above 2.5 overall. The flavor isn't there, the mouthfeel is nearly there but too weak, and there is much to be desired on the scent. I wouldn't recommend the beer.

Clear dark amber colored ale with a very small white colored head. This one is dark enough to be called red.

Smells strongly of pumpkin pie spice. Scents of ginger, mace and cinnamon with the pumpkin scent. Not quite pumpkin pie in a glass though, no crust scent. Burnt sugar aroma smells a lot like Fat Tire.

Starts out with a slightly sweet flavor of burnt sugar. Ginger and mace are the strongest flavors here. Some wheat flavor you can taste the crust element. Mild pumpkin flavor but the taste is more spiced beer than pumpkin ale.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall an OK Pumpkin ale. If you want a beer that is mildly flavored this is the beer for you. If you want bold flavors this isn't the beer you are looking for.

First pumpkin beer ever.

Appearance: Pours a golden amber orange with two fingers of white head. Head sticks around for a while but not much lacing.

Smell: Nutmeg, allspice, pumpkin pie.

Taste: Pumpkin and spices up front and then finishes with a hint of tart cranberry. Love the cranberry finish to complement the pumpkin and spices that come in the beginning.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, slightly creamy. Would be better with a little more carbonation.

First pumpkin beer and I'm excited to try more. I know there are probably some fantastic pumpkin beers out there. Especially ones made with real pumpkin. However, I enjoyed this beer alot and I think the cranberry tartness makes this beer delicious.

Appearance: Hazy golden brown in color, nonetheless with reasonable clarity, surmounted by a large, dense white head with good retention. The lacing is, appropriately Belgian-like, and the carbonation slight.

Aroma: Prominent pumpkin spices of cinnamon and nutmeg dominate the aroma, but there is a modest note of cranberry as well and a hint of alcohol.

Taste: The taste begins with a wave of pumpkin pie spice, soon followed by a solid malt presence and a nice wave of tart cranberries. Later in the taste, some moderate herbal hop bitterness contrast well with the spices, pumpkin, and cranberries. Finishes with lingering cinnamon and nutmeg, and slight hop bitterness.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, quite pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: A really nice example that is worthy of being served at Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's dinners.

Presentation: Packaged on a custom twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Sourcing: Purchased at HEB in Texas on 08/06/2013 for $7.99/six-pack plus tax.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden orange with a small fizzy white head that quickly goes to a thin collar.

The aroma is pumpkin spices (nutmeg, cinnamon) with some malt.

The flavor is some vegetative pumpkin and light spice (mostly cinnamon) with a bit of medicinal bitterness. I don't get much cranberry or lemongrass. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and is a bit watery.

Overall, a bit of a letdown. Might be better if they waited and used real pumpkin rather than releasing in July.

The beer pours slightly hazy amber with lots of visible tiny bubbles and a thin, off-white head. The aromas of pumpkin and cranberry are present. I also get some mild earthiness and along with the cinamon, nutmeg, and allspice. The taste follows the nose. The spice is present in the front and back along with plenty of pumpkin and cranberry. You would never guess this beer is 6% ABV. The body is medium to full with spritzy carbonation. This beer still drinks pretty easy despite that. This is a very good beer.

This pours a slightly cloudy amber color with a creamy head. The aroma is mild with pumpkin and cranberry. I can’t say what would make a person think that pumpkin and cranberry should be mixed together, but it does have a very interesting taste. Drinks very smooth.
