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!

OK, itís official, Iím not a fan of Jolly Pumpkin beers. The last one was classified as a Sour Ale, and I didnít like it. This one is classified as a Belgian, and it tasted again like a Sour Ale. 750ml bottle, poured a nice clear amber with a foamy off-white head. Very nice looking beer. Aroma was of tart, sour apple. Taste was tart, sour, and biting. Poured this one down the drain.

750ml bottle poured into a shaker. This beer pours orange-yellow and murky with a large creamy head. The aroma is tart and fruity. This is a pretty sour beer but it has a saison feel to it. Itís okay but not really my style.

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.

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.

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.

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...

On tap at Jolly Pumpkin Ann Arbor. Nice subtle spice on the nose. Pours a brownish red with a lot of head. Very complex flavors but honestly just not for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
