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!

Was passed around at Harvest, Saturday evening. Pours a murky, hazed burnt orange with a minimal off-white head. Diminished quickly. Interesting aromas of nuts, earth/soil, hop oil and dog biscuits. Tastes practically the same, however it does have some yeast notes by mid-palate, as well some candied citrus, butterscotch, cinnamon and oak. Mild tartness by swallow. Enjoyable.

Bottle courtesy of the Merrit Island tasting hosted by mcbackus. Poured a golden orange color. Smell was woody and tart. Flavor was sweet sweet malts with a hint of sour apple. I like the sweet and malty ones so this one was okay in my book!

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

Sweet and sout aroma. Cloudy light brown color with a thin white head. Leaves a very tart flavor on the tongue but still ends very smooth. Maybe a little nuttiness, but i have no idea what chestnuts taste like.

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...

There is no mistaking jolly pumpkins beers! Cloudy deep orange/brown with a medium just off white head. Classic tart musty basement aroma and flavor. This one adds in a nice nutmeg and slight dark fruit flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Split this one with the wife. 750ml served into an over sized wine glass. Batch 894 Bottled on 9-29-2011 A - Pours an orange amber with a small white head. S - Spiced apples, fermented fruit, earthy damp wood, cinnamon sticks, allspice, fragrant herbs. T - Tartness upfront with a spicy backdrop of cinnamon and allspice. Some lemon tea and other tart fruits almost tastes like a fruity herbal tea. Nutty caramel malts carry a sweetness that doesn’t dry out until the very end. M - Medium body, medium lively carbonation, dry finish. This really does remind me of fall. Light funk with good tartness. Not sure I could pick out the chestnuts. Delicate flavors and an inviting nose make this a joy to drink. Serving type: bottle 08-08-2012

Thanks to JohnC for sharing. Mostly just tart malty flavors, was not able to detect any benefit from barrel aging likely due to sourness that overpowered the whole experience.

So well integrated, and so well balanced. The wood character, the tartness, the funky notes, the fruit character and everything else just combines to form a really nice drinking, complex brew. Once again JP has created a masterful brew!

Medium copper color with big foamy off white head. Aroma is fairly bretty, tart, with fair amount of caramel, hint of cherries. Flavor is slightly tart, sour, touch of caramel and vanilla.
