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!

Nice thin head coats this slightly hazy amber colored ale. Aroma is yeast and spice. Taste is strong fruit with a sweet finish. Mild carbonation and a light mouthfeel make the beer smooth. Some tartness distracts but you get kinda used to it.

dark burgundy until i put it to the light. then it looked like an IPA. off white head. some funky smell. not that great. taste: andrew says he tastes spices, but if I close my eyes all i get is sourness throughout the profile. there might be something more early on but I can’t identify it. actually, now there’s some apple christmas spice stuff.

Pours golden amber, transparent with a big white head. Nose is lemons, barnyard funk, leather and spices. Taste is sweet with wonderful tart balance. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, light body with a long tart finish. Excellent.

humlelala (1010) - DENMARK - JUN 23, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2013 Sample offered from bomber @ Cafe Habengut @ May 30th 2013: Slightly flat as the bottle was opened yesterday. Definite tart elements in the taste but moderate and well integrated. The spicy element is still composite and difficult to break down but it is definitely remniscient of the spicy complement to the traditional US pumpkin ales. Practically mo head, hazy amber with subtle floaties. Original rating on June 23rd 2012: (75 cl bottle courtesy of GT2, cheers; batch 907, bottled 02/11 2011) Pours a cloudy apricot with a bit of white head that laces the glass. Aroma is cidery with notes of berries and a hint of some spice I don’t recognize. Oily texture, soft carbonation and a smooth, slightly spicy and not too dry finish. Taste is mildly tart with a sweet edge. Girlfriend says: "it reminds me of apple cider from Brittany."

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Clear copper golden orange with a big rocky creamy tan head, diminishing slowly. Sweet caramel malt. Creamy light spice with some light cherry oak. Mild creamy body, a bit slippery, not watery at all. Big sweet oaky beer. Oaked Arrogant Bastard with fewer hops! Very tannic! A bit spicey with spices and light esters. Lingering oaky earthy toast. Dries out the sweetness well. This could make a delicious but deadly (for the wallet) session beer. I could drink a bunch of this.

tasty and balanced. Good mouthfeel. Oak is present but not overpowering. Very smooth. Pours dark yellow with a tall thick head.

Barreras (999) - 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...

monk191 (982) - California, USA - MAY 5, 2012
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

cmonster (978) - 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.

Atheist_Peace (967) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2013
Very cloudy pour with an average sort of head that lasts and leaves a nice little lace. Spice jumps out on the nose with a nutty sort of edge. There’s a definite lactic note there as well, and a real lemony quality. All the same notes come out on the palate in much the same way. Very interesting and lightly sour.
