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!

JorisPPattyn (8576) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 26, 2006
Deep, slightly hazy orange with a good, orangeish, persistent head, leaving some lace. End of bottle full of U.F.O.’s. Fruity nose with preserved oranges, faint strawberries, little bit vinous, and a faint, distant spicey spiking (orange peel, cloves, cinnamon bark). More complex than the taste, which is quite dry, spicey. Fruity, with again much citrus, but without any fruitsugars. There’s a retronasal sourness, wry, like crabapples and/or orangezest, slowly dissipating in the throat. This gets more marked warming up. Despite the dryness, there’s a fizzy MF present. Not very much body either. Compared to my only other JPAA, this is where Fuego d’Otoño slightly lacks. Then again, the beer is extremely drinkable. Very pleasing beer, with a great balance, but slightly lacking depth. OTOH, it makes up for one hell of a session ale.

deyholla (8349) - 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.

Bottle at Paul’s place for Kan’s visit. Pours a hazy brown with a thin white head. Nice little funk note, malt, spice, plums. Medium bodied, light funkiness. Finishes with a light bit of spice, and some faint sweetness. Really nice carbonation.

sebletitje (7928) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2009
Batch #336. Love or hate JP beers. I was intrigued by the chestnut description, thinking this would be a bombastic style so often found in the Italian beers. No! Once again JP floods the aroma with the sour brett aroma, leaving almost no nose to be enjoyed. You take load of brett + slight chestnut and that sums up the aroma. It’s rather disappointing that JP keep doing this to all of their beers. Pours hazy golden with white head. Aroma as mentioned earlier is just filed with brett, and has very faint notes of the chestnut and spices. Taste was rather fruity, with lingering notes of cherry, light tartness with very light chestnut. Just too much of brett, way too much of it, please let me enjoy the beer!

Skinnyviking (7905) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2008
Bottle. High creamy and long lasting off-white head. Hazy dark orange body with a lot of bubbles. Bitter sweett aroma of oranges grapefruit and hints of coriander. Flavor as indicated by the aroma, rather hoppy lemon grapefruit peach acidic with a bit of coriander. Low carbonation and a long aftertaste.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 10, 2011
2010 bottle. Pours with a hazed golden amber body with a small white head. Aromas are funky, chestnut, earthy, mint, brett, wet leaves and lightly vinous. Flavors are sour, lactic, malty, bready, chestnut and lightly spicy. Acidic, with earthy and minty notes. Lively bubbles (excessively so), dry finish. Medium bodied (for a sour). Good.

marcus (7682) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 25, 2008
This copper ale poured with a decent off-white head and a sour aroma. The flavor, too, is mildly sour over an interesting malt base. There are some nice spices to enhance the recipe.
