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.

Probably amongst the best pumpkin beers I've had. Just not a big pumpkin beer fan

Pours an amber hue with a translucent clarity. Nose expresses nutmeg, clove, peppery notes and a hint of ethanol. Taste consistent with nose - what I like about this beer is that the spice profile is not in your face. Mouthfeel is light-medium with an even carbonation and a slight acidity. Overall, a solid pumpkin beer. Generally not a style in my wheelhouse; however, I enjoyed this one. Definitely in my top three for the style thus far.

Poured into a sniffer. Has a dark amber color with big aromas of pumpkin and spices. Mellow but present pumpkin flavor but most of the taste comes from a myriad of spices. Even gives off the flavor of being bourbon barrel aged and is rather alcoholic. This beer could use some aging to allow some more flavors to open up. (Like most pumpkin beers in my opinion). Nevertheless this is probably my second favorite pumpkin beer of all time and I thouroughly enjoyed drinking this beer.

Bottled on 08/29/14.

Tons of natural pumpkin flavor initially with the spices becoming more dominant as the beer warms. One of the better pumpkin beers that I've had.
