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!

Tap: hazy amber pour with medium-sized white head. Aroma has fresh grain, a sourness, some woodsy leafy notes, pumpkin, and allspice. Flavor is a bit convoluted at first with a tart fruit skin bumping into earthy pumpkin and woodsy malt and then into a bitter spiciness and caramel. Changes as it warms but just too many crashing flavors to enjoy for me.

Poursa a dark and straw golden body with a long lasting white head. The nose is impressive complex with citrus-notes and various spices. Like the scient the flavour is also pretty complex but disapoints with no really finish but some bitterness. I taste ginger, tonicwater, aniseeds, grapefruits and cloves. Great mouthfeel due to the complexity. Nice one

A: Snifter. Nice clarity of a vibrant burnt orange color, with a huge off-white head with an amazing head retention, which lead to very nice lacing. S: Aromas are sour with some hints of citrus. There are some spices in here as well as a hint of soap. T: a little bitter, but definitely has some fall characteristics. Such as dry leaves, some spices with a faint hint of apples. I really donít get any nut characteristics. M: A little dry, very high carbonation. Light body with a decent palate. D: not my favorite from Jolly Pumpkin, but it is definitely good. I will drink it again. Very drinkable and perhaps a a new Thanksgiving beer for me.

750ml bottle, courtesy of Ian. Typical Jolly Pumpkin tartness, a little Belgian spice, not horrible.

Bottle into Corsendonk tulip; purchased at Greenís in Atlanta. Bottle is a gusher (the first Iíve ever experienced), just kept foaming over like a Mr. Wizard volcano. The smell of woody brett was all over the place. Smells like warm apples and apricot when you stick your nose in the glass. Very woody in the mouth, not as acidic as I expected from the smell. Dry and cob-webby but also juicy; a nice texture. Medium bodied. Spicy on the end. Good beer.

They definitely hit this one spot on. While your drinking you feel like your in a pile of fallen leaves.

750 ml bottle, Batch 908, Bottled 11-04-2011 that I brought to Brianís suprise birthday tasting. Pours cloudy dark orange with a huge white head. This one gushed a little bit. Aroma is light funk thatís thatís a bit less than typical Jolly Pumpkin. Taste is lightly funky, spicy with an overall nuttiness and huge notes of Brett and oak.wood. Good stuff.

Thanks to Drew for this one. (Batch 244, 245) Hazy golden color with a frothy tall white head. Aroma is tart fruit at first, along with some bretty funk, then also a touch of sweet spices in the background and some yeast and honey. Tart and bitter flavor up front, like a lemon rind, followed by some sweet malts and a nice touch of spices. A bit of bretty funk is present all the way through. The finish shows a bit of nuttiness, or wood. Very nice, very pleasant.

Bottle. Pours a beautiful honey amber with a ton of head. Great nose is classic jolly pumpkin. Taste is thin. Has a good deal of lemon, caramel, and some spice. Semi tart but not complex.

Batch 336. Clear dark copper color and white head that starts off creamy. Appearance looks like an APA. Aroma is tart, with hints of dark cherry. Flavor is also tart, light hints of kreik beer. Finish is on the sour side and a bit watery.
