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!

Batch 244,245
Tasted on 12/2/12 from a capped 750mL bottle given to me by a very generous member of the beer community. Pours clear copper-orange with a very thick and fluffy white head that slowly recedes to thick, but even lace. The nose is lightly tart with some spices, perhaps cardamom, and a bit of caramel malt with some candied orange peel. The flavor is quite a bit more sour than I anticipated, with plenty of citrus peel, the same spices from the nose, and the malt a little lighter than the nose. The body is light with lively carbonation and a long, sour, and lightly bitter citrus peel and spiced finish.

Pours a mostly clear light orange with a white head. Aroma is tart with mild fruit and earthiness. Taste is slightly tart and nutty with a bit of sweetness while also having an some earthy and spicy character. Light/medium bodied with medium/high carbonation. Well made and interesting.

jinroh (1035) - ESTONIA - MAR 27, 2016
Pours apple juice, Brownish orange, bit of white foam, not much foam. Aroma is sour but not much, at the same time not really getting much chestnut and nit that spicy. Brett funk and horse-blankety. Taste is also slight sour, more old apple bitterness, some funk and horseblanket. spices coming out at the end, bit of nuttiness also, maybe because I am really looking for it. Nice and enjoyable, not mind-blowing.

kambei70 (919) - - MAR 12, 2016
Bottle. Hazy gold to amber pour with white head. Nose is lightly soured toasted malt, gentle spice, lemon, and floral esters. Slight funky with some wet hay. Flavor is light toasted malt with lemon citrus sour, pinot, spice, herbal mint, and toasted chestnut. Lingering lemon sour and toasted malt. fall-like in profile with gentle funkiness adding almost a dried leaf aspect. Light and crisp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks Greg for sharing the bottle! Poured into a wineglass showing a finger of clean white foam and dry orange peel. The nose shows light cooking spices but mainly a mix of Bretty funk, dry apricot/citric zest, and hints of oak barrel. The palate is well carbonated and light bodied. Flavors of dry apricot, light tartness, a hoppy bitter finish and a citric zesty spiciness.

Beachmaster (385) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 8, 2016
Bomber into a tulip. Pours a cloudy amber/orange, with a small white head that rapidly dissipates. Nose is vinegary Belgian yeast and spices. Taste is sublime-moderately tart beginning which gives way to light caramel and malt, followed by a nice spice finish. Soft carbonation, with a long finish. Very, very nice.

Bottle. Pours golden with white 1 finger head. Aroma has light Duchesse notes. Vinegar, fruity, grapes, cherry, malts, some peach and light nutty. Taste is light and delicate. Spices are there. Lige a krydderkage. Some yam. Prickling carbonation and light peppery dry finish.
