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!

Oakes (13426) - 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 (9447) - 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 (5570) - 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.

Light hazy amber colour with a beige head. Malty, light tart and fruity aroma with a sweet note. Malty, sweet flavor with a wellbalanced fruity note. Light dry and yeasty finish.

TBone (13829) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2009
Bottled (Pikkulintu, 0,75 ltr). Hazy orange color, small off-white head. Very herbal, hayish, a bit perfumic nose. Sour, grapefruity, some tangerine peel, vanilla. Herbal-spicey cooking, weird beer. It’s like some Fantome saisons.

gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Bottle pours an off white with a lively head. Very light and well carbonated. Spicy as in peppery more than anything else. Decent but not complex nor real drinkable.

JaBier (5454) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Bottle. Pours semi-hazy gold with a huge off-white head. Malty aroma with some funk and a bit of skunkiness. Tart and funky flavor with some bitter lemon and a semi-thin finish. No trace of spice until it warms up and then very faint. In all honesty, I probably wouldn’t have picked it out if the bottle didn’t tell.

drjay44 (2937) - Salida, Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2010
750 ml. bottle. Batch 244, 245. Shared with Gabe. Pours a tiny bubbled, lasting white head, with sea foam lacing, over a cloudy, gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is barnyard, lemon, apple....taste is light, almost sweet apple/ lemon then puckering sour, followed by a slightly bitter barnyard finish....mouth feel is light and carbonation low. This is a pleasant, but not overly complex, Sour Ale. The Brett qualities are quite dominant. BJCP 8/3/13/4/7

750 ml bottle, 2008, courtesy of ryan - thanks! Clear amber color, small fizzy white head. Aroma of slightly funky cream soda. Taste has black pepper, swet caramel, slightly bitter finish. Decent.
