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!

daknole (10320) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 20, 2008
Tasting at mcbackus. Hazy apricot color. Funky, woody aroma. Funk, sour, tart, woody flavor. Again I just cannot get into sours. This one was ok, just not my style.

hopscotch (10142) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2006
UPDATED: APR 23, 2006 Bottle... This beer rocks!... Cloudy, amber ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Neverending retention. The incredi-nose is funky, fruity, floral, spicy and nutty. Well-balanced, spicy, nutty, tangy, ginger-laden flavor. Medium-bodied and silky with medium carbonation. Finishes tangy, a bit tart and acetic. Another world class offering from J.P.! Thanks go out to artusory for the bottle!

Bottle @ home. Dark burnt red-orange appearance with a medium to large sized orange-cream colored head. Quite sour aroma on top of a spicy Belgian ale-style smell. Flavor has medium amber maltiness, fairly well spiced with a pretty sour fruity sourness. Fairly sour and somewhat spicy finish.

Sammy (9685) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2006
Cuvee de autumn fire, a funky jolly pumpkin. Not as vinegary, bold, as the brown ale had earlier in the tasting. Orangey colour. Spicey, hint of roast,drinkable.

crossovert (9559) - Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2014
650ml bottle. Red super hazed pour. Smell is of toothpaste initially then into mulled cidre. Flavor is wormwoody, some nutty character, mostly spices, anise, fennel, mild funk/tartness. Not bad.

GT2 (9410) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 6, 2012
750mL. Pours cloudy peach with a thick, thin near yellow beige head. Nose is quite incredible. More funky than other JPs with a lot of Lost Abbey Cable Car character: peach, tangerine, dried pineapple, lemonade, cotton candy. Wow. Just floored by this nose. Hints of acetic sourness and as it warms cinnamon and subtle spice emerge. Taste is very neutral and refreshing. No chestnut and fall spice nonsense. Hints of tea leaves and spices but dominant character is quenching Gatorade with peach and tangerine acid. Super fresh, light bodied, quenching. Fall saison perfection. Only qualm is hints of butterscotch that add fullness and deplete crispness. Slicker than wanted palate. Great stuff regardless. Must have more! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
