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!

Bottle; pour is murky dark golden with a fine bubbled off white head in this tulip. Retention is fairly nice, with some sticky lacing present. the nose is lemon grass, the distinct jolly pumpkin funk, with nutty brown malts. spicy pepper on the tongue, oak tannins and general nutty notes. there is a lingering bitterness as the brew finishes. perhaps slightly lacking overall, but another nice one from jp.

bottle. thanks tim. exploding foam. lost half the bottle before I could pour. hazy copper pour with big lasting frothy head. house aroma is sweet, nutty and spice. very lively palate. sour., doughy. big spice and hints of chestnut. carbonation dominates an otherwise tasty brew.

JDBaker11058 (1359) - Maryland, USA - APR 6, 2014
Appearance: amber/orange/yellow, short beige head, average lacing. Aroma: slightly nutty, with good funk, some sourness, a bit of chocolate and pepper, with stone fruits. Taste: earthy, sour chocolate, light spice and smoke, slightly tart fruit. Finish: lingering slightly tart yeast (brett?), with a bit of chocolate and nuts. Notes: As I’ve come to expect from JP beers, this was funky, weird, and interesting. As usual, I didn’t LOVE it, but I certainly enjoyed the oddity of it.

AlainG (1349) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 22, 2014
Un liquide orangé, coiffé d’une mousse majestueuse, dense, crémeuse et compacte, qui tisse une très belle dentelle au verre. Un nez d’agrumes, poivré, fruité et boisé principalement, où des effluves de bretts s’immiscent dans les arômes. En bouche, c’est subtil et équilibré. Juteux et acidulé. Sucré et amer. Aigre-doux et épicé. Plus que plaisant à boire. Batch 1243 Embouteillée le 9 novembre 2012 (986-240114)

Beaver (1340) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2007
750ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a thin white head that quickly goes to a thin film and collar that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is doughy malts with tart, slightly sour, fruits and some spices.

The flavor is earthy yeast with some bready malts. It has some tart and slightly sour fruits, wood and some spices and a dry lightly bitter finish. It has a bit of a washed out and watery flavor. The mouthfeel is medium with lots of sharp carbonation.

Overall, it’s a pretty typical JP brew, although not one of their better ones. I’d prefer more sourness and less watery flavors.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JAN 22, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2008 Sample at Barley Island tasting Jan 20, 2007 - Bought at brewery Dec 2006 - Aroma is sour, nuts and berries with a caramel yeasty finish. Pours clear brown with a small head and no lacing. Flavor matches aroma. Palate is thin and tart. Different and tasty, but not as good as I was expecting.

Added one to flavor and one to overall. Upon a revisit it has a nice gentle spice and good yeasty back that makes all JP brews so tasty.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Bottle. Pours hazy orange/amber. Ample off white head. Aroma is funky, musty, tangy, citrus, & spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, coriander, allspice). Smells very autumnal. Flavor is funky (slight tangy bleu cheese), spicy, sour, wheat, a little bit of crispy bacon. Excellent.
