Notes/Commercial Description:
Legend has it that when a pumpkin comes into the world it is possessed by either a good or an evil spirit. Ours got all the good baby! Bursting with real pumpkin flavor and yummy pumpkin spices including Ceylon cinnamon, Jamaican all-spice, Zanzibar cloves and nutmeg, Good Gourd is a celebration of Fall and that spookiest of holidays, Halloween. Pair Good Gourd with pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie and costume parties.

Had this one during a Pumpkin tasting which included 23 pumpkin beers.

There were 5 judges and we voted on our top 5. Out of the 5 judges 4 of them had Good Gourd in the top 5.

Good Gourd was #1 for me.

Had the Pumkin taste you were seeking. Was not too heavy and had a vanilla creamy taste to it and it almost seemed like it was barell aged with a good amount of booz to it.

To me it was perfectly balanced with the spice and the pumpkin flavor.. not cloyingly sweet but just about...which I liked... and perfect carbonation and smooth sweet finish that leaves you wanting more.

If you like Pumpkin beers then definitely try it out. To me.. I have yet to taste s better pumpkin beer.
