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!

Shared a bottle of this with BeerBaron617. It poured a nice hazy orange/amber/chestnut color with a thick off white foamy head. Doesn’t have the super sour aroma that many Jolly Pumpkin beers have. It tasted sour, but not quite as sour as some we have had. The spices in the flavor are quite subtle, and it wasn’t very remarkable.

Tomy63 (190) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - NOV 18, 2013
Couleur : ambre clair, reflets oranges. Belle mousse assez fine. Nez : moyennement expressif, sur des notes boisées, épicées, fruitées (pomme, orange, abricot) et un côté aigre qui s’annonce déjà. Bouche : Superbe, légère et fine mais on ne sent pas l’eau, belle ampleur, très désaltérante. Un côté acidulé avec beaucoup de fruits (pomme, orange, citron, abricot), des épices (surtout girofle et gingembre), un côté aigre-doux (à la Rodenbach) et légèrement boisé, un côté gueuze, puis un peu d’amertume en fin de bouche. Par contre, je ne sens pas vraiment de noisettes. Finale : longue, légèrement aigre, acidulée et amère, fraîche et fruitée, assez sèche.

750ml bottle. Hazy golden amber with a huge white head. Sour/tart aroma of brett. Some spiciness as well. A big tart, funky, brett taste. Very dry finish. Extremely drinkable. Big fan of this.

bhiner41 (180) - La Grange, Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2012
Sour smell and front note but there is a spice note, nutmeg, clove, and orange that lingers on the palate. Orange-tan hazy color, white head. Plum notes the more you drink, followed by citrus. Nice sour. Fizzy mouth feel, almost sour lemon on the palate. Different after every drink, very interesting.

floydslip (169) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Hazy orange-amber beer with a nice thick foamy white head that lasts. Sour nose of yeast, lemongrass, grains of paradise, and coriander. Flavor is definitely on the sour side with lemon, mirin, and rice wine vinegar followed by a hint of bitterness and light spice. I do not taste the chestnut at all, which is disappointing. Still, pretty decent.

DeweyDell (159) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2007
750 mL. Pours a clear orange-golden color with a frothy white head and tiny bubbles rising throughout. Maybe a little wood or something in the aroma, but overwhelmingly sour, with not much else detectable. Flavor is much more mild... a little bit sour (aroma is misleading), with a malty caramel flavor and a little bit of spicyness. Jolly Pumpkin beers generally confuse me, but this one was pretty drinkable.

BobbyW3363 (154) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 10, 2006
Appearance is really nice looking. Hazy deep amber with a fairly large white head of tiny bubbles. Aroma is yeasty, with tart notes of cherry. Flavor is predominantly tart, more fruity cherry flavors, followed by the chestnut and grain flavors that save the flavor from being too sour. Some notes of oak and spice. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, lightly carbonated, with a moderately bitter, spiced finish. I didn;t really like this at first because of the unexpected tartness, but it grew on me towards the end. A decent brew, but not really my thing.

Bottle. Blend #5. Almost a year old now. Aroma is tart fruit, nuts, oak, and funk. Appearance is a dark, cloudy orange with a thin white head. Taste is nuts, soft caramel, spice, oak, and moderately sour. Medium body with light carbonation. Overall another great jp.
