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!

harrisoni (13214) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2009
Bottle at Chriso’s Kook Tasting 09. Thanks to Ken for this one. Moerate sour aroma. Really easy drinking. Enough sourness to keep palate interested. Some wood on aroma. Very drinkable, some orange fruit.

yngwie (13122) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle, 75cl. A dense, two-finger off-white head forms over a clear dark golden body. Pleasant aroma with fruity sourness, a spiced touch and some malty notes too. It’s medium to full-bodied and with a nice carbonation level. The flavor has the same sourness, spices and a little maltyness. Pretty annoying spiced touch, I can’t recognize it, but there’s some allspice and herbal notes. Woody hints too. Seems very simple at first, but it’s really nice and tasteful. Sure a beer I could have again. And again. 140111

TBone (12333) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2009
Bottled (Pikkulintu, 0,75 ltr). Hazy orange color, small off-white head. Very herbal, hayish, a bit perfumic nose. Sour, grapefruity, some tangerine peel, vanilla. Herbal-spicey cooking, weird beer. It’s like some Fantome saisons.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2006
Hazy amber colour. Fairly funky, oaky aroma. Spicy flavour, aggressively yeasty with light backing maltiness and a tart finish. Interesting but I’m not big on the aggressive yeastiness.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2007
(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy amber body with a medium white head. Aroma of wood, herbs, spruce, cherry sourness, mustiness, and earthiness. Flavor is a sour funky delight with some woodiness and apple. Another superb Belgian from JP!

thewolf (11113) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 10, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours clear amber with a nice, staying, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has notes of oranges, chestnuts, strawberries, ginger and brett. Some wood in there as well. Fine, dry mouthfeel. Light with a subtle small-bubbled carbonation. Flavour has some brett or white wine tartness, sweet caramel, nuts, ginger and yeast. Long, lingering, light tart aftertaste. Very drinkable.
