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!

Orange in color, smells like a sour with a oaky finish, taste of champagne at the start, lingering tartness, with a strong vegetal finish

Hazy amber with an off-white head. Aroma of wood and sour fruit. Taste is a little tart, a little wild, and slightly sweet. Medium bodied. Quite nice.

Maybe the best sour I think I have had. I have come to expect nothing but from jolly pumpkin.

rbrazell (1687) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle from CBX. Deep hazy amber pour with a large frothy white head with thick sheets of lacing. Funky, musty,oak yeasty aroma, tangy citrus along with hints of spices, flowers and a very light sweetness. Citrus, oak, yeast funkiness and lactic acid. Relatively smooth body and lower carbonation for JP beers. Very tasty.

mansquito (3444) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 27, 2014
New Beer Distributors, NYC 750ml ($13.25) Nov. 4, 2011 bottle: When I first opened this, some of the sediment was stuck around the rim, fortunately, this is a sour, so it poured pretty nice with a relatively long-lasting head. Body is kind of murky orange. Aroma is lactic acid, quite strongly so. There is also a nice pastry-like maltiness that you can get in the aroma. Basically, it smells nice. Taste is relatively sour. There is a light caramel maltiness in there, but it was actually lighter than I expected. You definitely get the autumnal maltiness in the finish a little, as the sourness is more up at the front.

kidmartinek (3715) - austin, Texas, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Pumpkin golden color. White head covers the beverage until you’re ready to drink it which could be 10s of minutes. Super tart, woody, and pucker-inducing. Like brass and gold. The finish is all toffee and nuts. You’re welcome!

"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."

9/13/2014. 750 ml. bottle. Hazy deep amber with a creamy white head. Yeasty aromas, hints of spice and oak. Tart up front, a bit acidic, caramel notes and the chestnut flavors are prominent. The finish is long and dry. Medium carbonation.
