Bottle from CBX. Deep hazy amber pour with a large frothy white head with thick sheets of lacing. Funky, musty,oak yeasty aroma, tangy citrus along with hints of spices, flowers and a very light sweetness. Citrus, oak, yeast funkiness and lactic acid. Relatively smooth body and lower carbonation for JP beers. Very tasty.

New Beer Distributors, NYC 750ml ($13.25) Nov. 4, 2011 bottle: When I first opened this, some of the sediment was stuck around the rim, fortunately, this is a sour, so it poured pretty nice with a relatively long-lasting head. Body is kind of murky orange. Aroma is lactic acid, quite strongly so. There is also a nice pastry-like maltiness that you can get in the aroma. Basically, it smells nice. Taste is relatively sour. There is a light caramel maltiness in there, but it was actually lighter than I expected. You definitely get the autumnal maltiness in the finish a little, as the sourness is more up at the front.

Pumpkin golden color. White head covers the beverage until you’re ready to drink it which could be 10s of minutes. Super tart, woody, and pucker-inducing. Like brass and gold. The finish is all toffee and nuts. You’re welcome!

"Labeled as Autumn Fire, and definitely more of a sour/wild ale than a belgian, or any other style. Agressively sour more so than a lot of their beers. Very heavy oak and funk presence in the aroma and flavor, which i loved. Initial head disappates quick to leave a rather flat looking beer, otherwise this beer is the bomb. Musty, light spices and fruit. near puckering sour aftertaste. Love it."

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle. Red super hazed pour. Smell is of toothpaste initially then into mulled cidre. Flavor is wormwoody, some nutty character, mostly spices, anise, fennel, mild funk/tartness. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, blend 2, 10-04-2012. Light hazy orange with a large off white head. High effervescence. Wooden, red berries, barnyard, citrus, light green plant/earthy notes, more spices as it warms up. I notice that I am not good at pinpointing spices. Medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation (perhaps a bit towards being fizzy), medium sweet, light bitter and sour. Very light sour finish. Ok soft and pleasant to drink.
