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!

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.

Poured a cloudy orange with a white creamy head and a bit of lace residue on the glass. Smells faintly skunky and lightly hoppy. As I have come to expect with Jolly Pumpkin, the taste is interesting; very much different than typical ales. The bottle mentions chestnut and "spices"; further discription on the bottle lists the spices as "distant forgotten spices," which wasn’t much help as I couldn’t quite place them. Regardless of my ability to recognize the spices, the blend was nicely balanced. Even the after taste was pleasant. The palate was as close to perfection as I’ve ever encountered; perfect level of carbonation and the lingering impression of the taste was both long-lasting, and satisfying. A great ale well worth the purchase. Serving type: bottle

Pour is hazy copper with a medium ivory head. Nose is spicy with notes of dark fruits and sweet malts. Very Belgian in smell. Taste is sour with hints of dark cherry and plum. Not sure but makes me think Brett may have been in the aging barrels. Mouthfeel is medium. Overall this is a lovely beer. Like the sour notes and the tastes certainly scream of fall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2007 Wow ... I got this as a cask pull at "Buckeye Beer Engine" in Lakewood, Ohio. This was infinitely more interesting as it was around 55 degrees and the head was substantially different than anything I have had before. It was like a soft whipped cream instead of the other Jolly’s that are effervescent and sticky. The slightly hazy completion was nice and it was slightly more sour than their Bam. High on my list, especially if you can get it off a cask pull. Amended 11/3/07: had a taste of the regular draft today, very different texture. More sour than the cask and significantly more effervescent. Chestnut still present but more muted than the cask, probably a function of temperature.

Pours a hazy gold with a light white head from tap. Super thin mouthfeel with lots of carbonation. Taste is a bite from spices and and a little funkiness in the aftertaste

Poured dark orange. Sour, yeasty aroma. Light-medium body, very dry mouthfeel. Funky palate, almost gueze-like. Cherry undertones, agressive yeast throughout. Dry finish. Very drinkable ale...
