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. Cloudy amber colour with floaties. Nice creamy big whitish head. Good lacing. The aroma is sweet and sour with some spice and a pleasant toastiness. The flavour is sour, bit smoky, toasted caramel, slight plastic and some spice.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 6, 2012
750mL. Pours cloudy peach with a thick, thin near yellow beige head. Nose is quite incredible. More funky than other JPs with a lot of Lost Abbey Cable Car character: peach, tangerine, dried pineapple, lemonade, cotton candy. Wow. Just floored by this nose. Hints of acetic sourness and as it warms cinnamon and subtle spice emerge. Taste is very neutral and refreshing. No chestnut and fall spice nonsense. Hints of tea leaves and spices but dominant character is quenching Gatorade with peach and tangerine acid. Super fresh, light bodied, quenching. Fall saison perfection. Only qualm is hints of butterscotch that add fullness and deplete crispness. Slicker than wanted palate. Great stuff regardless. Must have more! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

deyholla (9935) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 17, 2011
On tap at the A2 location. Pours a hazy earthy orange with a creamy light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has traditional JP funk with chestnut and a hint of sweet grains and sourness. Flavor begins with sour fruits that combine surprisingly nicely with the chesnut and sweet grains. Real nice.

DocLock (9709) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2009
This is the 1st of a roughly 100 beer backlog to be rated by the King of Suds. Bottle from Craft Ale. Pours clear deep caramelly coppery with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is earthy peaty, malty, with some piney and sour mashy fruit notes. Tastes tart, fruity, with earthy, nutty, and spicy notes at forefront, and a balanced malt late. Not terribly complex or palate hefty, this one is enjoyable but not an earth beater. I would not pay 20 bucks for this again, whatever that is worth.

jercraigs (9681) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2011
2011-11-12. Hazy orange body with a small white head. 3+ Crisp medium sourness in the flavour has a pleasant zip to it that lingers in the aftertaste, but simple it is fairly subtle, but lovely. 7+ Pleasant lightly funky aroma is lightly floral and sour. 7+ Average plus bodied palate. Very enjoyable. On tap at Jolly Pumpkin Cafe, Ann Arbor

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2013
750ml bottle. Shared with friends over a game of Catan. Blend 4, bottled 10-08-2012. Somewhat hazy amber color. Thin white head. Couple loose bits of lace. Active-looking carbonation. Medium-plus body. Smooth, bright, sort of tingly lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Nice, citrusy, bretty flavor dominated the taste. Some spice. Don’t really get much chestnut... Little to none. Some darker malt, though. Hint of chocolate, and dark fruit. Nice tart taste. Light bitter, moderate spicy. Solid, bretty belgian ale.

slowrunner77 (9661) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
"Labeled as Autumn Fire, and definitely more of a sour/wild ale than a belgian, or any other style. Agressively sour more so than a lot of their beers. Very heavy oak and funk presence in the aroma and flavor, which i loved. Initial head disappates quick to leave a rather flat looking beer, otherwise this beer is the bomb. Musty, light spices and fruit. near puckering sour aftertaste. Love it."

On tap at Avenue pub. Pours a cloudy amber with a small frothy off white head leavin sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is spice nutmeg and yeast. Thin mouthfeel with a fruity hop and nice sweet finish.
