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.

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a snifter. Enjoyed on Thanksgiving.

Appearance: Pours a medium brown with a reddish hue and leaves a finger of off-white head which slowly fades to a layer atop the beer.

Smell: Cinnamon, nutmeg, mild pumpkin. The spices are incredible and come through really well in the aroma. Mouth-watering.

Taste: Light pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, some malts. Decent amount of sweetness. Really tasty.

Mouth-feel: Nice medium body and medium carbonation. Fits the flavor profile very well. A bit sweet and sticky, but not too much.

Overall: I think this might be the perfect pumpkin beer (for me at least). Delicious spices, the right amount of "pumpkinness", right amount of sweet - just really delicious. This was a great beer to enjoy on Thanksgiving. See you again next year, Good Gourd.
