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!

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - APR 21, 2013
Si presenta come una meraviglia: ambrata con un bello e fitto cappello di schiuma. Aroma di caramello, legno, spezie con una leggera aciditŗ. Al palato ingresso dolce speziato poi evolve decisamente in maniera acida ma senza eccesso. Líacido Ť accompagnato poi dal sentore "farinoso" e classico delle castagne. Finale leggermente luppolato. Uníaltra ottima birra di Jolly Pumpkin.

Pours golden amber with thick rocky head... aroma of brett, malts and floral notes. Flavor is brett... nice sourness but not overwhelming... smooth. Nuttiness at finish. Very nice.

I forgot to rate this one. Poured a darker amber with a minimal white head. Aroma was sweet yeast and spice...loads of fresh citrus and mellon. Aroma was spicey and tart...typical jolly pumpkin. Mouthfeel is fantastic.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Classic JP profile. Pours deep orange, with an amber hue. Sour orange citrus, red fruit, spice, saline and JP yeast notes on the nose. On the palate, subtle, complex flavors intermingle with each sip. Layers of sour orange citrus, red fruit and saline, combine with nuances of herbs, JP yeast, savory chestnut, spice, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Wonderful texture, carbonation and weight on the palate... Super easy to drink! Mouthwatering and refreshing, with a dry finish. Balanced!! Glad I picked this up. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Pours a cloudy orange with a white head. Tart fruity aroma with some barnyard notes. Tart flavor with citrus and tropical fruit notes. Light body with a grainy mouthfeel and a high level of carbonation.

MaxxDaddy (392) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2008
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange/gold with typical billowy head. Aroma is unmistakenly brett and funky. Probably the most in any Jolly Pumpkin Iíve tried. Slight nuttiness in the taste to go along with the funk, pepper, and brett. Somewhat prickly on the palate and goes down yeasty and slightly tart.

Advocate_Ames (384) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2012
A delightful beverage. I enjoy a mixture of the sour/wild ale & the Belgium style ale. This brew will affect your palate slightly. The appearance was wonderful. Overall it is better than the average beer beverage and I would enjoy having this again.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Pours a hazy copper/orange color with a frothy two finger head that settles very slowly to a thick cap that sticks around for the entire beer. The lacing thatís left behind is thick, and covers most of the inside of my glass. Smell; there are some definite tart and sour aromas present. Once you get past those a little fruitiness comes out with apples, lemons and hints of oranges. Itís a bit on the funky side with some interesting barnyard aromas, with some cinnamon and other spices mixed in with an oak barrel presence in there as well. Taste; itís definitely on the tart side, but itís in no way overwhelming. Caramel and cinnamon blend well with the apple flavors, with an interesting lemon twist mixed on with them. The barnyard funk and oak barrel flavors round out the beer very nicely. I wasnít sure the flavor would live up to the smell, but it definitely has, with all of the flavors smoothly flowing into the next. Mouthfeel is on the full side with a lively but smooth carbonation. The only real problem I have with this beer, is that I only had one of them.
