New Belgium Brewing (Fort Collins, CO) PUMPKICK, has arrived.
The newbie resembles a recent Lips of Faith release — Kick, a collaboration with Elysian Brewing. Kick was a slightly sour pumpkin beer brewed with cranberries, aged in oak. No oak aging or souring in PUMPKICK, but you can look forward to pumpkin juice, cranberries, and more. The flavor is quite complex, and the beer very easy drinking.
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, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice, but its the cranberries and touch of lemongrass that send your tastebuds sailing.
