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!

cmonster (953) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle served in a tulip. Dark honey with a slight haze. Almost no head and light aromatics when poured at fridge temp. The nose develops rather quickly though and shows real quality. Sour, nutty, fruit, cheese, oak, and spice. Chestnuts are the dominating element. Flavor is medium-light sour. Light+ body, oily-thin texture, and a long, dry, acidic, sour finish. Loving the chestnut infused nose. One to sip and savor.

Medium amber body with a... hey, what’s 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 it’s just a bit too much for me.
[Sample @ RBNG14 Grand Tasting, Fredriksten festning, Halden ]

MJGG (924) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 18, 2012
Bouteille de 750 ml. Arômes typiques du funk de Jolly Pumpkin, très porté sur les brettanomyces. Robe blonde foncée et trouble, légère dentelle et effervescence assez active. En bouche, le caractère des brettanomyces de Jolly Pumpkin est également à l’avant-plan, créant une impression de pulpe d’orange et de pamplemousse blanc. Légère présence épicée (cannelle ?). Finale très sèche montrant une belle acidité rappelant les agrumes. Toujours agréable.

Bottled. Still pour with fine microbubbles, quite different appearance than what others have noted here. Hazy orange-amber color. Lovely spiced aroma of holiday spices, pear, and citrus. Some funk to the aroma as well, with a subtle oak nose. Initial flavor has a smooth nutty malt tone with lemon citrus in the mix, followed by more bread-like yeasty tones with a lightly bitter, sour finish. The tartness is balanced well, but I get a weird metallic finish at some points. Very carbonated. Enjoyable.

ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2006
05 Bottle. Pours is murky tan, amber color, with a huge rocky off white head that lasts forever. Aroma is yeast, malt, nuts, some sourness. Flavor is very tart acidic, yeast, malt, citrus, spice like cinnamon and clove, oak, there’s a lot going on here! Palate is light to medium with huge carbonation and a linger tart finish! Fanatstic!

An explosion of sour citrus in your mouth. Bottled in October, it would have aged beautifully for many years.
