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 send your taste buds sailing. Available in August-October 2016.
Amber with a light sheen to heavy haze, off-white foam and lacing.
Big pumpkin pie spice up front: cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and clove. Cranberry and other red fruits back it up with lighter notes of pumpkin, floral, and sweet-bread like malty notes.
Pumpkin pie sweetness with a very light sourness that finishes with an ever-so-slight bitterness.
Cloying and coating with spices. The finish is dry.
