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!

Crushed with Jakebra. Interesting brew. Spicy, funky nose. Flavor has some nuts, some orange, some funky brett and subtle sourness. Very light, dry finish. Incredibly drinkable, and pretty damn nice.

Oakes (12639) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2006
Hazy amber colour. Fairly funky, oaky aroma. Spicy flavour, aggressively yeasty with light backing maltiness and a tart finish. Interesting but I’m not big on the aggressive yeastiness.

Sammy (8679) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2006
Cuvee de autumn fire, a funky jolly pumpkin. Not as vinegary, bold, as the brown ale had earlier in the tasting. Orangey colour. Spicey, hint of roast,drinkable.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2007
The medicinal aroma of this ale took away from my enjoyment. Hazy brown with a large, good-lacing beige head, it smells of anise, oak, pepper, unripe sour cherries, and chewed mint leaves. There’s a slight sourness to the flavor that combines all the elements of the aroma, adds a quietly sweet malt, and has a touch of alcohol. Obviously well crafted, but this will probably be the only time that I will drink it.

probstblueribbon (2926) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2007
750 mL bottle shared with Ben (thanks), served at cellar temp in a tulip glass. SE09/07

App.: Dirty brown-copper, some dark chunks of yeast, large light tan head, good lacing. Aroma: Bright and tangy, light funk, somewhat fruity, very light spice (particularly white pepper). Palate: Medium body, medium-full effervescence, light powderiness. Flav.: Quite herbal, almost minty, some cinnamon, a bit nutty; tangy and bright, nice bitterness and a bit of caramel malt; a little alcohol and some light herbal hops.

This was a GUSHER. Lost a good third of the bottle. Quaffable but not mind-blowing at this point. I’d like to try another bottle to be sure I got the real deal.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2007
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of boboski. Pours a hazy, amber golden with huge amouts of sediment and a lively, of-white head that leaves some lacing. Lightly tart Brett-aroma. Fairly light in body with lightly fruity notes and a whiff of...cinnamon?? There’s some Bretty accents present without making the beer sour as such. Dry, slightly leathery finish. Interesting - as most Jolly Pumpkins. 301107

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Bottle courtesy of the Merrit Island tasting hosted by mcbackus. Poured a golden orange color. Smell was woody and tart. Flavor was sweet sweet malts with a hint of sour apple. I like the sweet and malty ones so this one was okay in my book!
