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!

Very unique beer. Pours a cloudy golden color. Smells of apple and cinnamon. Taste is very different, almost like a sour Flemish ale or a cider. Like green apples. Had in the bottle, batch 902. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle provided by His_Greatness. Damn and Hot Damn, one of the JPís that I have been waiting to try for some time now. The beer is a moderately hazed deep amber concoction which upon pouring froms a solid and fairly dense light tan head that just wonít go away. Dense, foamy lacing is left behind. Soft funk aroma, nothing too assertive that just whacks you in the face but a subtle barny presence that introduces itself and slides away into the crowd. Perhaps a touch of the chestnuts, hard to say never having had a chestnut beer before. Medium bodied, a bit sprightly on the palate and moderately drying. Flavors are crisp, some modest spice presence, touches of lemon and orange zest. Overall, a wonderful creation, I hope this becomes a staple in Ronís portfolio!!

ippopotamo36 (1770) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle purchase at Hoppiness beer store in Koper/Capidistria-Slovenia, consumed in Serbia. Pours amber color, quite cloudy with a tick off white foam. Nose: quite a distinctive wild sourness, berries, macerated grapes, a hint of caramel. Loads of wild mint as well. Mouth: lively carbonated, quite watery, spicy after taste, too much herbal in the end. Bit rough...for me. Did not get the chestnuts but appreciated the concept all in all. It talks to autumn in a way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Medium amber body with a... hey, whatís that smell? A strong aroma of mint? Also gentle bretty hints. Lots of mint in the flavours as well, this is like drinking a mint bubblegum. Also herbs and a gentle wildness. A fun thing with the mint, but itís just a bit too much for me.

Vestergaard (1761) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle at Fermentoren Aarhus thanks to Mads! Pours hazy orange with a small, White, creamy head. Aroma is tart, fruity, peachy, spicy. Taste is smooth, dry, tart, leathery, peachy, and with a long, wooden aftertaste with green-stick-dryness and a subtle nutty sweetness. Juicy. Citric. Tasty. Average carbonation and an oily, juicy body ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stine (1761) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 4, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2008 2006. Firey mahogany-red pour, thick and resistant, retaining a thick layer of forthy crown throughout. A perfectly pungent sour green apple aroma precedes layers of pecan and toffee-caramel malts. Becomes somewhat dry, vegetal and grassy eventually. The chestnut tones are brilliantly subtle, dusted with cinnamon and buried in the richly textured malts. Oak breaths aged anthems of smoke into a fresh, tart-tasting body. Finish is tangy with sharp cloves and dill spice. Thick but lively in the mouth, dynamic and resonant, its myriad of voices humming in intricate counterpoint. An approachable sophisticate, mysterious but inviting to every sense. Thanks John! 8/4/9/5/17 4.3

2007. Cascading white gush on a firey orange murky body. Thick apple tart and fritter sweetness in the aroma; warm cinnamon spiciness and earthy nuttiness. Spices seem quite green sometimes; a cool, sweet wisp of tarragon. Pickled ginger and citrus acids predominate a tart, juicy sweetness. Flavor is a mite thin, showing a lot of grapefruit and mandarin tartness that seems to flutter a bit weakly on a brittle body of malt. More prominent is this soft sweetness of oak and recurrent, dry-sweet greenish spiciness. Pickled ginger rings out still and lends some funk to a soft sourness of white wine and overripe pear. Full of delicacy and complexity, but notably less dense, less warming and less autumnal than last year. Full sparkly palate, somewhat brisk and quite acidic. Finishes on a soothing sweetness of vanilla and lemon meringue, musty and short. Less memorable, if not necessarily worse. Thanks Mike! 8/4/7/4/15 3.8

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 22, 2006
Light brown with a few particulates, small head. Bold aroma, spicy and sour, pumpkin. Taste is sour and bitter up front. Light spiciness. Mild yeastiness. Finish is exceptionally clean. Body was a little too watery for me.

DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2007
2006 bottle shared by Blake. Pours to a clear brown amber with ample carbonation supporting a huge meringue-like head. Woody, cinnamon-spicy aroma with tart acid over ginger bread malt. Great flavor on this stuff - tart green apple, tangy nutty wood, and lemon citrus over soft pale malt. The mouthfeel is aided by velvety carbonation - not at all tingly or harsh. This beer is well put-together; I donít dig on the nutty flavors too much but itís still tasty.

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...
