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!

ippopotamo36 (1771) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle purchase at Hoppiness beer store in Koper/Capidistria-Slovenia, consumed in Serbia. Pours amber color, quite cloudy with a tick off white foam. Nose: quite a distinctive wild sourness, berries, macerated grapes, a hint of caramel. Loads of wild mint as well. Mouth: lively carbonated, quite watery, spicy after taste, too much herbal in the end. Bit rough...for me. Did not get the chestnuts but appreciated the concept all in all. It talks to autumn in a way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAR 26, 2006
Hazy deep orange-amberish beer with a nice creamy slight yellowish-off white head. Aroma is mild and soft malty, it has touches of nuts and almond liquor. Also touches of chesnut skin that gives a untherbuild tart sharpness in this brew. Aroma is sweeter than the taste. The mouthfeel is quit dry, it has a soft malty carracter with a slight spicy touch and sharp accents of sour apple skins (renette apples) and orange zest. In the afthertaste there is a nice earthy touch with hints of humide forrest soil, wild berries and wet wood The more this beer gets warmer, the more wine like the beer gets.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2011 Any first impressions?
-A creamy head settles over the muddy dusk.
-Orangey citrus fruit and accompanying herbal spices, comforted by a nutty sweetness, lie on classy wooden flooring.
-Chestnuts obviously provide most of the beer’s sweetness, emboldened by an otherwise meditative spicy flavoring.
-The carbonation is ample but delicate, exactly how these Belgian ales should be carbonated.

What if you dig deeper?
-The fruity, nutty sweetness isn’t overdone, agreeing with the subtle, intelligent tartness.
-The wooden dryness softly drops the curtain.
-All in all, this is a quite humble spectrum of flavors.
-Another Jolly Pumpkin success, an understated but serene and well-brewed creation.

Bottles; no date.

TheBeerGod (6029) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Schroppfy! Pours a murky rusted amber. Tall tanned white head. Nose is slightly nutty, very spicy, and laden with cobwebby yeast. Taste is slightly tart fruits, light nuttiness, spices, Belgian yeast notes and light barnyard notes. Almost a light gingerbready type flavor to this. Body is light-medium and bubbly. Finishes with big spice notes, dusty yeast notes, soft fruit flavors, light nutty notes, and light tartness. Another good JP beer!

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2006
Great appearence with a pillowy foam. I’m not sure I like the subtle wild yeast character. The same character was present in both Biere De Mars and Bam Biere, and I’m still unsure about it. After the mid-palate, some interesting fruit character comes out. The mouthfeel is nice and chewy. I wish it had more barrel character however. More oak please. Pretty good and unique. Don’t worry Ernest, I’ve got another bottle to share with you!

Thanks to BgBurdman for sharing this at the last Columbus tasting. The aroma is sour and some funky grass smells as well. The pour was a golden brown with a small head. Slightly sour taste with a good bit of yeast and some tangy flavors as well. The mouthfeel was light with ample carbonation.
