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!

Dark amber pour. Watered down pumpkin pie minus the pumpkin bit and leaving just the spicy all-spice and warm subtle cloves. Very enjoyable, not overly sweet due to the spiciness of the flavor.

Bottle acquired via trade with JAXSON...thanks again Jeremy!!! After the lineup we tried (Blabaer, Frambozen, Rosso E Marrone), this one had a hard time holding its own. Tasty, though. Murky burnt copper pour produced a 1-finger ivory head that didn’t leave much in the way of lacing. Aroma is earthy, spicy, funky, and citrusy. Flavor is much more malty, bready, and biscuity than others in the style. A little watery, both in flavor and palate. Not bad.

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Light and spritzy on the tongue. Very mild sweetness. Horse blanket and barnyard aromas were nice, albeit faint. Dry and slightly bitter finish. Earthy, nutty aftertaste. Decent, but not overly exciting or deeply complex. Regardless, it’s pleasant.

badgerben (4362) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2009
Batch 335. Copper, orangish color with a thin head. Fruity aroma of apple and a bit of lemon tartness. Dry, grainy flavor. Quite tart. Light fruit. Very, very slight nutty flavor, though I think the label is making me think this more than I actually taste it. A good enough brew, but based on the description I was actually expecting to taste spices and chestnuts; in that, a big let down.

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Bottle. Seemed like it might be flat when I cracked the top, but it poured with a decent level of activity. The aroma is distinctly yeasty. The predominate flavor is of green wood, and although this has been laying down for almost a year, I wonder if I shouldn’t have left it longer. Sweet, lightly spiced with ginger, evergreen and lemon grass. (#3872, 3/28/2010)

milewide (1386) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Spice and sour in both aroma and taste. Brownish amber color with medium head. May have some chestnut flavor---but I don’t eat chestnuts often enough to know for sure. <G>

MrChopin (2927) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Translucent orange, thick bubble white head. High level funk blurs any nose spices, malt+funk leaves papery quality, no single element causing wild notes, but very singular.

BMan1113VR (7788) - 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.

Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Sampled at an esbls tasting. This is a gusher. An off white head that leaves sticky lacing. A hazy golden dingy beer. A funky sour fruity aroma. The flavor is fruotyband sour, too. It is very much a Jolly apumpkin beer. Like most JPs this is nice.
