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.

The beer pours a clear dark amber/brown with a thin off-white head that fades quickly. The nose is spice forward, but not distinctly pumpkin pie-like, instead it has a slightly cinnamon and bubble gum aroma. The taste has a similar bubble gummy/plastic spice presence, which dominates the sweet malty base and leaves little room for other expected pumpkin beer flavors i.e. caramelized sugars, vegetal gourd, grain, and yeast. Drinking this beer leaves the palate saturated by a medium-heavy bodied, boozy, punishing spice bomb. It's reasonably carbonated and sweet. This is a distinct and different kind of pumpkin ale, but the dominating bubble gummy spice profile is off putting
