I saved this one for Thanksgiving. Totally worth it!

A: Dark orange slightly burnt color. 1 finger of an off white colored head. Lot's of carbonation bubbles streaming. Nice looking pumpkin ale for sure.

S: First wiff reveals a ton of nutmeg. Lot's of allspice and cinnamon but none are over done. Smells well rounded. Also i get the pumpkin on the nose. It comes across like a butternut squash aroma.

T: Lot's of pumpkin. The spices shine too. Cinnamon, allspice, huge amounts of nutmeg. Definitely the best tasting and most well rounded pumpkin beer.

M: Medium bodied. Soft and chewy. Easy to drink. Alcohol is well hidden.

Overall: Hands down, the best tasting pumpkin beer i've had. Doesn't taste artificial. It's not too over the top. And it's balanced as hell as far as the pumpkin flavor and the spice. A very enjoyable beer.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for acquiring and sharing this

Consumed 10/13/12

Appearance: Somewhere between dark amber deep orange - nice, off-white head - keeps a little cap and a nice ring, leaves some spots of lacing

Smell: Absurdly aromatic, it smells like walking into a candle store - tons and tons of spice, exploding with crazy amounts of cinnamon, ginger, and allspice - some pumpkin here, but it's mostly covered in the spice rack - some sugary biscuits and booze underneath

Taste:So much pumpkin pie spice - not just a large helping of premixed pumpkin pie spice, though, the cinnamon and ginger taste oddly fresh and exotic - interesting, but a bit over the top - caramel and some pale malts - a solid base - some pumpkin in the background, but everything is really overpowered by the spices - overly sweet, too

Mouthfeel: Medium body, thin compared to some other Cigar City beers (that require a spoon to eat), smooth, nicely carbonated, spices are a bit cloying

Overall: Great, if you're looking for a spice potion

So spicy. This beer seems to treat pumpkin pie spices like DIPAs treat hops; the more the merrier. I'm not sure if I really enjoy this. It's good, but it has some issues.

Got this one at Total Wine about 1 month ago and have looking forward to trying this one. I got two bottles; one for before Halloween and one to consume on Halloween. Lets give er a go.

Pours from a 750ml bottle into a Stella Artoios chalice type glass. Fills the glass with a chocolate amber colored beverage. There is a small wispy head that disappears almost immediately. There is no lacing and no retention. This was a bit of a bummer.

Aroma is very nice. Filled with the potpourri of pumpkin spices such as nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, cloves, brown sugar, molasses, even a hint of chocolate and toffee. Rather complex. However, there is a bit of vegetable/cabbage that slightly detracts from the overall pleasantness of the aroma.

I liked the flavor. I still think Pumking is the king of pumpkin beers, but this one follows suit nicely. Slightly synthetic pumpkin flavors. There is a nice pumpkin pie and pumpkin cookie and pumpkin donut thing going on with the flavor. Very heavy on the spices, certainly the limit of spice flavor has been reached with this one. Quite bready. Kind of sweet and gets a little syrupy as it warms.

This was very enjoyable overall. Notmy favorite of the pumpkin beers, but this is definitely a solid beer in the category. Nice body, medium in the feel. Carbonation could be a little higher, but a nice ber.

I picked this up in secret halloween '11, thanks Michael. I poured from a bomber into a snifter, deep orange pour, big white head. The aroma is strong with pumpkin pie spice, especially allspice. The flavor is in good balance, good amounts of pumpkin, and spices are mixed, it has a dry finish. The body is medium, light alcohol notes, good carbonation. One of the better pumpkin beers I have ever had.

Pours a red tinged orange with a thin wispy head.

Pumpkin spices dominate. Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg. Don't get too much real pumpkin out of this.

More pumpkin in the flavor. The spices are more subdued than the nose. A bit of nutmeg still comes in, but pumpkin is the featured flavor. Finishes with a little nutty aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is pushing toward medium as is carbonation level.

I like when my pumpkin beers aren't overwhelmed by spices and this one fits the bill. It's nothing mind blowing, but a good large format pumpkin ale to share.

Thanks to BeerGod1 for the bottle. Split with angrybabboon.

Appearance: Deep burnt orange. Head is white and leaves a small cap that's bubbly and tight. Slight chill haze. Some vague notions of lacing, but it might be imagined.

Smell: Super pumpkin pie levels of sweetness. Cinnamon, nutmeg and some hint of clove and allspice. Sweet bready malts. Some caramel malt undertones. Some sweet caramel candy flavors as well. Syrupy pumpkin flesh. Squashy goodness buried deep. The vegetable is earthy and squashy like it should be. Big sweetness. Very much like pie, including the bready, buttery crust.

Taste: Cinnamon and sugar toast if you made it out of pumpkin bread. Bready malts. Caramel sweetness. Huge hit of roasted malts. Pumpkin, squashy and real coupled with sweet canned pumpkin. Building cinnamon spiciness pushes through as the beer warms. Lots of clove, allspice, nutmeg. Cinnamon dominates. Big pie sweetness. Buttery crust. Graham crackers. Backing overall spiciness. Cooked malts. Deeply caramelized. Spiced decadence.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation on an almost full, slightly syrupy body. Dry and sweet at the same time. Body drops as the beer warms and thins out drastically.

Overall: Pumpkin steroids.

This isn't a pumpkin so much as it is concentrated essence of pumpkin pie. So much spice and chewy malt the pumpkin loses out. If the spices dialed down a touch, this would be fantastic.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: orange-gold with less white head than expected. Decent retention, though, and leaves a beady lace.

S: fresh pumpkin that's smooth and mellow. Truly smells like pumpkin pie. Cinnamon, nutmeg, sweet malts, hints of Challah bread too.

T: smooth mixture of sweet malts, spices, and fresh pumpkin. Great balance here: not too sweet, spicy, or pumpkin-y. Finishes with a delicious, lingering pumpkin pie aftertaste and just a tiny hint of bitterness.

M/D: nice & creamy and nearly full-bodied. Velvety texture is sublime. Could drink this entire bottle myself.

Practically every brewery in the country makes a pumpkin ale these days, and nearly every one of them misses the mark. Even beers from top-rated brewers seem to miss more often than they hit. Good Gourd is a hit!

That said, it still falls short of my top tier. Frog's Hollow Double Pumpkin by Hoppin Frog and Devious Imperial Pumpkin by Bethlehem Brew Works tie for top honors among pumpkin ales. But Good Gourd ranks a solid #3, snugly above ST PumKing and DFH Punkin. Cheers!

Growler courtesy of my CCB hook up fogdog. Thanks again Kevin.

Poured into my duvel tulip.

A: Dark orange brown, about one finger of light beige head, tiny soapy lace ring

S: The aroma is rather sweet pumpkin pie with subtle spices come through as well. Cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and vanilla. The abv gives off a touch of heat reminding you it's present.

T: The malt is a bit more agressive in the flavor. Smooth pumpkin pie with hints of pie crust and tiny bit of black pepper in the finish. No bitterness that tends to ruin most Pumpkin ales. Huge bonus points for that. Nothing but a trace of the high abv can be picked out in the taste.

M: velvety creamy body that seems to slowly slide off the tongue. Modest to low carbonation.

D: This is an absolute winner of a pumpkin ale. Finally a pumpkin beer that rivals pumpking. I hope they end up bottling this one. I would love to stock up every fall.

Big thanks to EgadBananas for the bottle!

Appearance: Pours a reddish amber with a very thin whitish head that fades quickly, nice splotchy lacing on the sides of my tulip.

Smell: Cinnamon, allspice, and pumpkin hit first. I also get a nice dose of brown sugar, some nutmeg, caramel, and malty sweetness. Awesome aroma. Reminds me of Thanksgiving when dessert (think apple and pumpkin pie) is just coming out of the oven.

Taste: Follows the nose with cinnamon up front, mild spiciness, but a nice pumpkin kick. Not overly sweet but the brown sugar, caramel and nutmeg all come through.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and crisp, low to moderate bitterness with mild carbonation. Nice texture with a smooth finish, well masked alcohol.

Overall: Wow, this is absolutely fantastic. I don't love pumpkin beers but this is just great. I would expect no less from CCB, and this certainly delivers.

22oz bottle into a snifter
2014 vintage

A: Pours a dark copper with reddish hues when held to light. Less than 1 fingers width of light khaki colored head, which dissipates down fairly quickly and leaves almost no lacing. 4

S: Lots of spice and a balancing sweetness. Tons of sweet malts, caramel. Some pumpkin, but its subtle. A good amount of cinnamon and some clove. Some booze. Very nice aroma. 4.25

T: Like the nose, theres lots of spice, although I cant exactly place which spice is most prominent. Behind that unique spice flavor, there is also cinnamon and clove. Pumpkin is more prevalent in the taste than the aroma. Some caramel malt. Quite unique, but I dont love it. 3.75

M/D: Full bodied, carbonation a bit heavier than I would like, ABV is well restrained but noticeable, drinkability is ok. 3.5

O: Its ok, a bit disappointing. I dont particularly gravitate towards pumpkin beers, and with that its not one of my favorite pumpkin beers. Dont think I would buy this one again. 3.75

Consumed Nov. 19, 2011 at Inaugural Bottle Share. From notes. Thanks tbadiuk!

A: A hazy orange coper with a light head and lacing.
S: Cloves and cinnamon with a light but notable pumpkin / squash. Intriguing.
T: Delicious. Like a sweet pumpkin pie, with obvious pumpkin and cinnamon notes. Some lingering sweetness.
M: The cinnamon and sweetness linger with a nice carbonation level.
O: A really good pumpkin beer. If more pumpkin beers were made like this one, I would actually seek them out and buy them...

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.

A-murky dark orange with a nice cream colored head. good lacing.

S-pumpkin with a spicy and tangy aspect to it. the spicyness isn't the typical autumn spices though. it reminds me more of belgian witbier. smells really tasty and unique, though faint. actually there are some autumn spices too...i don't know...this is complex.

T-wow this is going to be talked about for years to come. this is great. comes in with a great taste of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and sweet potato! its a great taste with strong flavors. it goes in to a slight bitterness then ends with a long lasting after-taste of pumpkin, brown sugar, and sweet potato. this is amazing.

M-creamy low carbonation with a semi-dry finish

O-as far as pumpkin ales go, i've only ever liked pumpkin and pumpking. i've now added good gourd. in fact, this puts punkin to shame. its such a complex and balanced blend of great flavors.

Pours a dark amber color but translucent when held up to light. Light but noticeable carbonation. Cloves, pumpkin and brandy on the nose. Taste is boozy, pumkin, allspice, cloves, cinnamon and ? candy corn in a perfect combination. Delicious.

750ml bottle share thanks to doppelbockulus
12/12/13 – Served in a Duvel tulip glass

A: Good Gourd pours a burnt sienna hue with some mild haziness to it. Definitely a deep caramel-orange color with a half finger of thick khaki whip over the top. Solid retention efforts with some soft dots and doodles of stick adhering to the glass.

S: Smells like pumpkin pie in a bottle!!! It is dead on spiced pumpkin fruit with some caramelized sugars. Exactly what I had hoped for. Has legitimate spice aromatics of cinnamon, clove, allspice, and nutmeg with a sort of persimmon cookie likeness. Amazing aroma overall really.

T: Tastes of pumpkin caramel spice. Like liquid pie filling with an expressive and well constructed spice flavor profile. Exotic almost with the pronounced cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and allspice combination. It is all there in good balance. Each delicately layered and not overbearing to the pumpkin fruit. Toasted grains, rich with a toffee sweetness. Again much like persimmon cookie or gingerbread to me. Hints of anise in there. The brew is mostly sweet but with just the right hit of hop bitterness at the end that acts as a counter balance. Mild earthy quality towards the finish and alcohol is completely masked. This beer is more so about the spices than the pumpkin really. Really great overall.

M: Very smooth and creamy mouth feel with a moderate body. Small amount of bitterness with a decent drying finish and relatively clean retreat.

D: Really well done and quite enjoyable. You get the pumpkin and the spice in great balance. I don’t have much experience with Pumpkin beers but this is what I imagine one should be like.

On tap at the brewery with JJ. What a cool spot.

A - Amber/Brown with an off white head.

S - Cinnamon, burnt sugar, toffee, and PUMPKIN.

T - Allspice, nutmeg, molasses, sugar, pumpkin, caramel, Damn this tasty. They have so many good beers on tap, Marshal Zhukov, Vanilla Brown Maduro, Jai Alai, and multiple other brewery only releases. I love pumpkin so tried this beer and I was not disappointed.

M - Smooth, Sweet but not overly so, well balances, light carbonation.

O - Fantastic pumpkin beer. Another hit from CC. Hardly taste the booze for the ABV. Another reason I love Cigar City. Beers like this make me wonder why there's not more love for pumpkin beers... but I suppose to each their own.

Bottle shared at the UFC tasting. Thanks guys! Poured from a 750 ml bottle into my Deschutes snifter.

A: Pours a very solid orange with some darker hues intertwined. Splotchy lace followed the beer down the glass.

S: Big pumpkin. Very pure in nature, definitely the best pure pumpkin smell I've got from a pumpkin ale. Light cinnamon and some pie crust were also present.

T: The pumpkin is integrated very well with the spice and neither dominates. The pure pumpkin is nicely woven with the cinnamon and slight hint of nutmeg as well. This is laid nicely on a pie crust backbone that is leaning towards the sweet side.

M: Light bodied, very drinkable. Nice sweetness is left on the palate. Nice carbonation.

O: This is definitely the best pumpkin beer I've had to date. The pumpkin was purest in this one and nicely integrated in with the spices.

On tap at the brewery. This is one of the spiciest pumpkin beers I've had. Tons of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg atop a roasted pumpkin flavor. Warms once inside you like pumpkin pie.

Very happy to come across this brew on a recent work trip. Let's see what we have here. 750ml bottle, 2011 vintage.

A: Pours a slightly cloudy orange brown color with a nice 1 inch fluffy off white head that fades slowly. Good.

S: I get some nutmeg and clove immediately upfront. Some cinnamon starts to blend in the middle with a faint vanilla finishing off the nose. Good.

T: Not what I was expecting after the smell. I get a mild hint of spice immediately which is quickly drowned by a chewy sweet malt with some hints of pumpkin. It then finishes with a mild nutmeg and hidden hop bitterness. No alcohol noticed at all! Very good.

M: Medium body with a huge carbonation. A chewy sweet finish with a mild spice.

O: All in all, this is another representation of why I love CCB. They took the style they set out to brew, and made an above standard representation of it. If you like pumpkin / spiced beers, then you should definitely give this bad boy a try.

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip. Thanks to Dunt for bringing this over.

Appearance: This has a dark amber color, cloudy, with a frothy white head.

Smell: Pumpkin and spice really dominate the aroma. Some other spices in the periphery.

Taste: Some light caramel malt lead into the main attraction - strong, spiced pumpkins. Cinnamon and nutmeg are the most dominant.

Mouthfeel: This only has a medium body despite the high ABV. There is what seems to be an off-feel to it, maybe some pumpkin residue. The finish is a little bit grainy and my mouth feels coated in plastic after my glass is done.

Overall: There was something about this beer that struck me as off. The feel was a little bit light, and there is some pumpkin residue flavor that is not appealing

Thanks to Mposha for hooking me up with this. I love the way Cigar City's bottle labels look like cigar bands. Poured from a bottle into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter. The beer pours out a nice reddish-brown, fairly clear with a little bit of haze. Carbonation is about average. The one finger of light tan head quickly dissipates. The nose is fairly sweet and spicy with nice aromas of toast, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice.

The beer has a full body and wonderfully creamy, velvety feel. The flavor is really sweet up front and a little bit squashy. At mid-palate, lots of spices come in and balance out the sweetness nearly perfectly. Everything that announces its presence on the nose is present in the flavor. The spices seem to overwhelm the sweetness in the back of the mouth and they linger nicely on the finish. I don't get much in the way of diacetyl or hop character, but I wouldn't expect to with all these flavors.

Overall, this is a phenomenal pumpkin beer. I think it's right up there with my two favorites: Schlafly Pumpkin Ale and Southern Tier Pumking. It's sweet, but not cloyingly so, and the squashy pumpkin flavors are perfectly complemented by holiday spices. A fantastic fall beer.

My first pumpkin ale of the season.

The first time I've had this beer in the bottle. Last was a growler in 2010.

A lovely orange/amber in color with lots of carbonation and a short tan head.

Big aroma of spices like cinnamon.

It's sweet, but not cloying, with lots of spice and pumpkin flavors.

Big body is great.

Overall this is one of the better pumpkin ales out there. Seek it out.

Had this one during a Pumpkin tasting which included 23 pumpkin beers.

There were 5 judges and we voted on our top 5. Out of the 5 judges 4 of them had Good Gourd in the top 5.

Good Gourd was #1 for me.

Had the Pumkin taste you were seeking. Was not too heavy and had a vanilla creamy taste to it and it almost seemed like it was barell aged with a good amount of booz to it.

To me it was perfectly balanced with the spice and the pumpkin flavor.. not cloyingly sweet but just about...which I liked... and perfect carbonation and smooth sweet finish that leaves you wanting more.

If you like Pumpkin beers then definitely try it out. To me.. I have yet to taste s better pumpkin beer.

Much thx to my man velcrogrip! 2013 vintage.

Appearance: Orange cloudy rust with a half finger of white head. Hold it up to a light and it glows like a jackolantern...awesome.

Smell: Pumpkin flesh, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves. There's also this raspberry/strawberry hard candy type of smell going on. This definitely smells a lot different than any pumpkin brews I've had. It's like all those other pumpkins, but on steroids.

Taste: Big sweet pumpkin and cloves up front. The middle gives some nutmeg and cinnamon. The end sees the pumpkin sweetness fade out nicely into a dry finish with spices lingering in the background. Just amazing.

Mouthfeel: Sticky, viscous and almost a bit syrupy. However, it is just perfect for this beer. Coats the tongue formidably with modest carbonation.

Overall: This is a big, sweet, syrupy beer and I love it. The huge pumpkin/clove sweetness and dry finish makes this a winner for me. I've found my new favorite pumpkin beer.

Good Gourd has arrived on the Northeast Coast. Glad to see this as I had stared at this in wonder last year if it would ever make it up.

Smell of caramelized sugars, roasted malts, light english yeast I presume by lack of any real character outside of the spices.

Taste of fresh light cinnamon, sweet spices, buttered sweet potato, a bit of Jamaican allspice in moderation and tons of caramelized sugars.

Medium to light body with a creamy buttered slick mouthfeel.

Overall I really enjoyed this. The closest pumpkin Ale I can compare it to is Weyerbacher imperial pumpkin ale which I have not had since last year but I really enjoyed that beer. I like pumpkin ales a lot but after having a few pumple Drumkin , this just blows it out of the water and I had thought it was only mediocre on the low side. Good Gourd should probably be renamed Great Gourd? or maybe that is for the sequel that has been aged in bourbon barrels.
