What You Need to Know
The Pumpkick features the pumpkin flavor and spices that one would normally associate with a Pumpkin Ale. But there’s also tart cranberry and lemongrass as well. So how was it? Let’s get to the review.
The ale pours a slightly hazy orange and is topped by a thin white head that dissipates rapidly.
The aromatics are strong and pleasant with a scent of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
The palate follows the nose with its flavors of pumpkin, spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. The tasting is spicy and sweet but balanced by tart cranberries and hops.
The feel has a medium body and moderate carbonation. The brew has a dry finish.
If you enjoy pumpkin seasonal brews, definitely give the Pumpkick from New Belgium a try.
