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.

Nitro tap, Snifter glass

A – Dark brown, mostly opaque but some ruby highlights where light passes through. Nice clarity. Firm, thick foam head, tan-white, an inch or so tall and it goes nowhere. Impressive nitro pour.

S – Just a slight hint of fall/pie spice. More of a sweet character from the use of actual pumpkin. Minor bitter hops on the nose.

T – Very strong harvest / fall / pumpkin flavor, melded well with a sweet malt backbone and perhaps some spicy yeast notes.

M – Creamy, foamy texture, very smooth from the effect of the nitro dispense. Mild sweetness, a touch of bitterness, all in harmony.

O – Of all the harvest/pumpkin beers, this is one of the best (if not THE best) I’ve had. The creaminess from the nitro puts it over the top.

Brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, some nuttiness. The aroma is lovely, however the flavor wasn't as well integrated as I had hoped. A little too overwhelmingly spicy, but still enjoyable.
