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!

Smells floral. Color is golden and cloudy. Light body, light sour touch, spicy. Flavor disappears fast, not a fan of this beer.

750 ml bottle @ liquid sunshine tasting - big thanks to bvc for this bad boy; light amber with slight head; big, sweet aromas of sour apples and cherries; drinks on the light side with a nice zing; flavors primarily lemons, cherries; raw and grainy; sourness is muted and soft; drinks very smooth; yummy

From a capped 750 ml. bottle with a blurb on the right side of label, no freshness date. Poured a amberish orange with a fluffy, foamy head, decent retention. Aromas of toasted malts, caramel, sweet spices, nutty, a light citrus fruitiness and earthy yeast. Good carbonation and a crisp, dry, velvety smooth light-medium bodied mouthfeel. Pleasant tasting, a soft tart orangey/lemony fruitiness, toasted caramel with some a little roastiness, toasted chestnuts, nutmeg and sugar, clove and coriander, earthy, bready yeast, a vanilla woodiness, a nice hop bite, and a dry malty, yeasty finish. Another tasty ale from Jolly Pumpkin, well worth trying.

Popped off the cap and a steady flow of foam came out and wouldn’t stop - I had to pour it into 3 separate glasses. After all that, I had a glass of a muddy dark red clay-colored brew with an off-white head. Right off the bat, this smells the least funky of the JP brews I’ve had to date (all but the Calabaza). The light funk is there along with a nuttiness and some fall spices. The taste was pleasantly funky, dancing around on the palate and complimenting the spices. The finish is dry and there’s more sour on the back end than I expected. Probably the most subtle of JP’s brews.

Pours a clear penny color with a small fizzy white head. Bretty earthy aroma, with some nuttiness. Flavor has wine-like tannins, with pepper, oak, and smooth caramel malts.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JAN 29, 2012
(750 ml (batch 899/900, bottled 10-7-2011) from Oak Street Provisions) Pours cloudy amber-gold with an off-white head. Aroma of fruit and spice. Mouthfeel smooth, medium-full. Taste is tart, medium sour, citrus, spice and yeast.

ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Poured a nice amber/brown with a thin white head. Aroma was a bit of sour funk with some nice undertones of malt, a little cinnamon maybe? Flavor was sour brett yeast on the front (not overwhelming in the slightest though), but there were a lot of other things playing in the background. A nit nutty, a nit of a tannin kick, a little vanilla. Very nice beer from Jolly Pumpkin.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Bottle. Aroma of plastic, caramel malt, toasted coconut, standard JP funk. Flavor a mix of caramel malt and that JP funk. A little more body and malt to balance the by now boring funk than in some other JP’s, but still not really getting me going.

Barreras (1560) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Pours a rich amber color with a sour pumpkin smell. Taste is clean, simple and light pumpkinly. A quickly dissolving aftertaste, that leaves a light rose petal flavor on the tongue. Almost a sweet caramel flavor in the aftertaste, that goes away too fast...
