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!

Bottle shared at Gaasa, july 5th 2013. Hazy amber body, offwhite head. Spicy aroma, yeast, pepper, vanilla, oak and chocolate covered in a slightly sour yeast. Taste is spicy, coriander, pepper, funky brett notes, roasted malt, caramel, with a good finish of red fruits. Peppery and fruity aftertaste with some tartness.This beer appealed to me!

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Poured from 750ml bottle into my wee 4oz sampler mug at World Expo of Beer in Frankenmuth, Michigan. Appearance: Poured as smoothly as possibly, eliminating any head that may have come up otherwise. A red, cinnamon color. Very attractive. Smell: Hey, speaking of cinnamon ... a spicy cinnamon sort of nose. Sort of fruity. Taste: My first of the style, and... interesting. Cinnamon, fruit, sour, tart, sweet... itís all over the place and should be a mess, but it isnít. Iíve not had a beer like this before, and Iím glad to finally have gotten the chance to try some Jolly Pumpkin. Itís a good beer that Iíd buy in 12oz bottles, but I wouldnít ever see myself buying a 750ml.

Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a cloudy orange with a large off white head. Funky nose with hints of musty yeast, light spices, and cider vinegar. Tart from start to finish with lots of yeast, cellar character, earthy nuttiness, and subtle spice all in a light body with plenty of carbonation. Delicious.

Pour is hazy copper with a medium ivory head. Nose is spicy with notes of dark fruits and sweet malts. Very Belgian in smell. Taste is sour with hints of dark cherry and plum. Not sure but makes me think Brett may have been in the aging barrels. Mouthfeel is medium. Overall this is a lovely beer. Like the sour notes and the tastes certainly scream of fall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brenn79 (1468) - Idaho, USA - SEP 1, 2013
750 ml bottle- Pours hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma is tart, dark fruits, spices. The taste is barnyard funk, minerals, nutmeg, other spices, pretty tart, I wish it had more depth, it seems like itís missing something, similar to other JP beers, I wish the chestnuts were more prominent, they are there just subtle. Body is medium and carbonation is high. Good.

There is no mistaking jolly pumpkins beers! Cloudy deep orange/brown with a medium just off white head. Classic tart musty basement aroma and flavor. This one adds in a nice nutmeg and slight dark fruit flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

teorn88 (1915) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2013
75cl bottle. As youíd expect from JP, this beer is a funky/sour take on the style, with loads of horse blanket and basement aromas, still showcasing some great chestbut and cocoa spiciness. Overall a great beer once again from JP.

poisoneddwarf (1676) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - AUG 23, 2013
