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!

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

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!

Slightly hazy yellow gold pour with a big rocky white head. The aroma has the same sour apple right upfront that I get from all JP beers. There’s also some various hints of spice, chestnut, coriander, lemon and orange zest, and some pepper. Mouth puckering sourness hits the taste buds first and then fades to grassy, floral hops, soft caramel and biscuit, some ripe fruits, damp oak, citrus, and apple cider vinegar. Dry medium body with lots of carbonation. Im really a little amazed at how delicate the numerous flavors are in this and yet the sourness is still quite strong.

ericdevin (901) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle from 16 Tons, Eugene. Labeled Batch 907, Bottled 11-02-11. Pours a dark but translucent reddish orange, lots of head; this was quite lively out of the bottle. Aroma nice, oaky, lacto, nutty, some tartness. Body was very lively, finish brings back oak and nuttiness, tartness there but not as overwhelming a say a Flanders style red would be. Kind of weird, I have to say a well done beer, but just not my particular favorite.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2008
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!

bgburdman9 (858) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2006
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.

750 ml bottle at Logans Alley. Wonderful amount of pleasant sourness with a nice hint of cinnamon and chestnuts. Delicious anytime of the year.

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
