Hollow Gourd from the Italian White Pony microbrewery.
If we have to choose a Halloween beer, this will be the one!
I don’t have to hide the fact that I have a soft spot for this brewery.
Hollow Gourd is again a real White Pony, but … maybe not quite what you expect …
This Hollow Gourd was brewed with the addition of pumpkin puree (nice to stay in the theme) and brown sugar.
In addition, cardamon, cinnamon and some other spices were added.
It is therefore not surprising that this beer tastes quite spicy and, contrary to what you might have expected, is much less sweet in combination with a drier and spicier aftertaste.
Despite that, still a solid 12.6% alcohol on the counter!
While I chat with the brewer for a while and in the meantime write this review, I notice that my glass is already empty.
That can only mean 1 thing … Yes! it was very tasty!
