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!

Pours hazy gold with white head. Aroma is lots of yeast. The yeast profile give lots of fruity sweetness with plenty of funk. Nice medium body malt profile. Extremely good.

Dark amber pour. Watered down pumpkin pie minus the pumpkin bit and leaving just the spicy all-spice and warm subtle cloves. Very enjoyable, not overly sweet due to the spiciness of the flavor.

One of the best smelling American beers I’ve had in a long time. Very gueuze-ish in aroma. Tart apples and oranges, quite funky and bretty. Like a stinky old cheese covered in mold! The taste is a bit of a letdown after the beautiful nose, basically a tamed version of it. The brett is a surprisingly quiet for JP, while the malt flavors balance the spice out perfectly. Do I also sense a bit of hoppiness dancing with the acidic and tart nature of of the yeast? Hmm. Interesting! The aftertaste is very akin to that of mineral water, which kept me sipping for a long time. Not my favorite from JP, but still quite enjoyable. EDIT!: I went downstairs to finish the second half of the bottle, and found that with the yeast added to the glass it’s a different monster altogether. I had to bump the appearance (because the lacing was so freaking beautiful) the taste (because it got SO much more intense), and the overall (because I loved it).

Poured a cloudy amber color with a big and fluffy eggshell colored head. Aroma is nuts, raisin, banana, caramel, cinnamon, ginger, floral, and spice. Taste is mint, raisin, apple, banana, nuts, floral, with a very faint pine. Dry finish, almost like a red wine. Pretty interesting and refreshing.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2014 Little bit of a farmhouse smell with notes of the oak and wild yeast. Hazy golden pour with some lace. Fantastic blend of fruit with a subtle spice and the sourness is not overwhelming but makes the beer brilliant. Great palate and overall awesome beer.

Aroma of oak tannins and apple sourness. Appears orange brown, plenty of lace. Taste is amazing, tannic, sour, and roasty malts. Overall, great.

apricot flavor, no aroma. Off tan head. Not much flavor, almost sour, reminded me of a sour beer.

Merci à Boutip pour la bouteille! Nez intéressant, à la fois "agé" et à la fois fruité/citronné. L’acidité citronnée se poursuit en bouche et accompagne certaines saveurs de baies rouges. Le corps est champagneux mais garde tout de même assez racine pour être agréable. Aucun alcool de discernable. Raffraichissante. Pas mauvaise!
