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!

Thanks to mcbackus for this one. Cloudy dark orange pour with a huge head, good lacing and retention. Aroma is spices, yeast and oak barrel, hint of fruit and caramel. Well balanced and delicate, light tartness with a dry finish, medium body. Enjoyable.

IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Thanks to Secret Santa Pailhead for this beer. Poured a hazy amber with a large overflowing off-white head. Rich aroma of sweet bread, cinnamon, a bit of sour funkiness. Flavor is quit dry and consisting of flavors some cinnamon, wintergreen, peppermint, a bit of nuttiness, though finding it is a strain. I’m not finding the flavor to be as complex as the nose, as the dryness of this beer really seems to be overshadowing the flavor layers. Well-crafted, but I’m just not getting enough complexity to move this to the next level for me.

Gusher alert! As soon as I opened it a foam river shot it of top. I poured maybe an ounce into a pint glass that quickly over flowed. After about 10 minutes the foam finally subsided from the pint glass but it still took awhile to pour a full pint. Now to the rating. Poured dark red with huge white head. Aroma of cinnamon and spice. Good cinnamon flavor to start with some fruit hints. Finished with some spice.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 22, 2007
An attractive pour on this one. A clear, rich light brown color with some orange and copper highlights. The head was creamy and off-white on the pour with good retention as it slowly collapsed into rocky peaks. Decent lacing. The aroma was the expected bretty funk at the onset, but as it opened up it showed great depth. Beyond the sour funk there was soft caramel malt and nuttiness (chestnut). A bit of old wood came through too. The flavor was expectedly funky, but some hops and softer caramel came out too. Crisp apple with a super dry finish. Enjoyable.

yespr (39114) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2007
From bottle, no 17 at Papsoes blindtasting. Pours hazy orange with a collapsing head. Brett aroma, citric to acidic. Flavour is subdued sweet and with a classic brett flavour of acidic to citric notes. Quite nice. Finish holds a nice caramel sweetness beneath and smooth and controlled brett flavour. Mellow and nice. Far finish holds a mild woody tone.

Beaver (1599) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2007
750ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a thin white head that quickly goes to a thin film and collar that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is doughy malts with tart, slightly sour, fruits and some spices.

The flavor is earthy yeast with some bready malts. It has some tart and slightly sour fruits, wood and some spices and a dry lightly bitter finish. It has a bit of a washed out and watery flavor. The mouthfeel is medium with lots of sharp carbonation.

Overall, it’s a pretty typical JP brew, although not one of their better ones. I’d prefer more sourness and less watery flavors.
