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.

750 mL bottle courtesy of fthomasl pours a hazed candy apple color with an immense cap of off-white head. Nice retention and just a hint of lace.

Nose is red apples, cinnamon, sugar and maybe some nutmeg. Very much like apple pie.

Wow, this is really amazing. Tastes like someone put some Cool Whip, apple pie, pumpkin pie and a few cones of hops in a blender with maybe a few shots of whipped vodka. Mouthfeel is rich and velvety. Very nice.

A-Pours amber in color. Head fades fast. Lace is decent.

S-Aroma is amazing, Cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg shows above all else.

T- Pumpkin spice, Cinnamon nutmeg and brown sugar. The pumkin is so "pumpkiney" (if thats not a word it is now). Very Sweet to me.

M- Medium . covers the mouth with flavor.

O-Beautiful beer. CCB has not made anything that i don't like. This is by far the best Pumpkin beer in the world. Amazing A+++
