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!

Sour aroma, sour taste, but not as tart as I was expecting. Yeasty, but also sour taste. okay.

Aroma of major funk, like manure but in a good way. Lots of malty, spiciness and some celery mixed in with that bretty funk. Golden brown with a thin white head. Flavor is nutty with a slightly sour cherry fruitiness and some spices. The finish has lots of barnyard goodness. Slightly oily texture with a dry finish. Thanks to Silphium for bringing this all the way from Michigan.

Well, my last regular bottled beer. Pours a clear orange color with a nice white head. Aroma is musty, with orange, clove and spice. Taste is lemon acidity, earthy bitterness, nutty, and some spice. This one surprised me. The balance of this beer was perfect for my tastes. Nothing was out of balance, everything playing of each other nicely. Well rounded and enjoyable. Really well done for a hard to do style.

Bottle to glass. Dark brownish amber pour with a thick white head. Nose is a bit funky and spicy and sweet. Taste is funky with spices. Oak aging provides nice smoothness in flavor and body.

Pours a light gold in color. Plenty of nice rocky head. Nice web lacing on sides of the glass. Smell is funk and some tartiness. Taste is very nice. Lots of nice sour, tartness coming through. Good amount of spice to compliment the tartness. Good, smooth mouthfeel. Another good offering from JP.

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

aroma is tart and roasty with some barnyard and caramel -- a very nice combination. it pours a light rusty orange with small white head. flavor is mostly a smooth sourness, maybe some nuttiness in there but not much. really a very nice mild sour ale, finish is bitter and somewhat astringent, but it’s nicely balanced.

Gushed would almost be an understatment! Even after pouring over 12 oz. out of the bottle this continued to foam over. Aromas are of funk, apple cider, cinnamon and caramel…very Fall and reminds me of apple doughnuts from the apple orchards in the Fall. In the mouth it is tart and sour with the funkiness from the nose running throghout. Recently I have had some overly funked Jolly Pumpkin’s but this one was quite good.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2015 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.

Foxy orange, effervescent. "Autumnal" aroma - wet leaves, brett. Citric flavor (orange, kumquat), barnyard, dry-out effect. Quite refreshing, very tasty, interesting, unique, and very drinkable. One of my favorite JP beers now.
