COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Autumn Fire
Ale brewed with chestnut and spices
To catch a bit of soft radiance in each special bottle, we wait for fall colors to begin their bright and fleeting glow before brewing this wonderful ale under their autumn fire. Gentle amber malts lead smooth caramel notes, gently lapping against a shore of distant forgotten spice. A beer to contemplate and enjoy!

Opaque hazy gold with a white head. Aroma of apricot and peach, flavor of caramel and bubblegum. Smooth mouthfeel. Pretty good, but not my favorite JP beer...

floydslip (173) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Hazy orange-amber beer with a nice thick foamy white head that lasts. Sour nose of yeast, lemongrass, grains of paradise, and coriander. Flavor is definitely on the sour side with lemon, mirin, and rice wine vinegar followed by a hint of bitterness and light spice. I do not taste the chestnut at all, which is disappointing. Still, pretty decent.

Palme (3383) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 13, 2014
Sampled from a 0.75l bottle @ RBNG 2014. Bottle says "#Blend 2" This is a cloudy orange golden looking one. A little but really seriously lacing white head on top of it. Smells classic wood-sour Jolly this. Could of course be psychological, but I get that spot on same aroma in almost every beer I’ve had from Jolly. A little brett woodiness with soft lemons and gooseberries. Smells really inviting and nice. Lots of flavor! Quite brett infused with sour pickled lemons, some wood also but it’s definitely not wood dry. Yeasty and what you could call sunny flavors. Quite a nice one. 15.02.2014

On tap at the Public House (The Venetian LV). Cloudy amber with a decent sized off-white head. Aroma is of spiced cake, tart, floral, and earthy notes. Taste is of florals, tart, faintly acidic, woody spices in the finish.

kathouse (1015) - Nevada, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Nice thin head coats this slightly hazy amber colored ale. Aroma is yeast and spice. Taste is strong fruit with a sweet finish. Mild carbonation and a light mouthfeel make the beer smooth. Some tartness distracts but you get kinda used to it.

Cunningham (4507) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2014
Cloudy deep golden color with a fine off white head. Fresh aroma. Yeast, fruity and citric. Fine ody and a fresh bitternes. Ok carbonation. Tasty fresh flavor. Yeast, citric, mild acidic and mild malty. Recomendable.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2014
Two fingers of dense white head. Body is near clear amber-gold. Aroma is light funky-fruity with whiff of gooseberries. Soft on the palate, medium full. Clean and fresh, light acidic fruit flavor. Fine spice tones, light caramelly and toasty malt base. Leafy bitterness in the finish. [Shared bottle at Grand Tasting, RBNG2014]
