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!

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.

ericdevin (988) - 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.

Atheist_Peace (981) - 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.

hapjydeuce (975) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JAN 25, 2008
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.

ttoadee (973) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 24, 2015
Deeep gold pour, finger of tight white head. Nose is Jolly P Brett. Sour. Middle is bright citrus, mellow hints of nuts. Finish is mostly dry, with a nice caramel under note.

Brouwerij (957) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Blend #6, Bottled 10/10/12, 25.4 oz Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a finger of fine off-white head. Decent retention with some lacing. Aroma is moderately funky, barnyard, tangy, spicy. Flavor is moderately sour up front and builds slightly, fades into herbal, vegetal, and spicy finish. Mild bitter that lingers. Moderate carbonation, less than many sours, and a light, crisp body. Slightly tart, oily, finish. Not a very traditional belgian ale, it is more herbal like a sour saison. Regardless, it is an excellent, tasty, refreshing beer.

MJGG (952) - 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.

Concealer (945) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2014 Re rate. Tap at hops and pie. Cloudy amber with a lasting beige head. Aromas of citrus, sweet malt, caramel, tart fruit and spice. Tastes tart upfront with citrus, caramel with an underlying sweet malt and spices. Light bodied, lingering tart fruit, caramel and spice.

Bottle. Pours golden coloured with a nice off white head. Aromas of bread, orange peel, cinnamon and nuts. Tart and fruity flavour with notes of bready malt, spice, orange fruit and herbs.

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