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!

Blind rating at sk8viking´s. Pours a hazy amber/orange with off.white head and lacings. Slightly sour and fruity. As a nice mellow gueuze. Earthy. Medium carbonation. Nicely balanced.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Bottle and labeled Bottling 3, 2007. Medium sized off-white frothy and fizzy head that mostly diminished, hazy, one ring of lacing, visible carbonation, and a golden hue. The aroma was sweet, sour, tart, spicy, malt, some caramel, acidic, lambic like and brett. The flavor was sweet, acidic, fruity, spicy, sour, some malt and light caramel. Spritzy mouthfeel and medium bodied. I had a hard getting this beer rated as I was turned off by the aroma and the flavor as well as I just couldn’t get into the taste of this beer for some reason. This is definitely a beer I could not drink an entire bottle by myself. Next!!

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle. Light funky and fruity nose. Cloudy orange with a big thick bubbly white head. Nice lacing. Nice sourness but not much in the finish. A bit thin. Not on par with the depth and complexity I’ve come to expect from JP.

Tasting at mcbackus. Hazy apricot color. Funky, woody aroma. Funk, sour, tart, woody flavor. Again I just cannot get into sours. This one was ok, just not my style.

Shared a bottle of this with BeerBaron617. It poured a nice hazy orange/amber/chestnut color with a thick off white foamy head. Doesn’t have the super sour aroma that many Jolly Pumpkin beers have. It tasted sour, but not quite as sour as some we have had. The spices in the flavor are quite subtle, and it wasn’t very remarkable.

Thanks to footbalm for this one I had high expectations for this beer and I was disappointed. First of all, I tasted neither chestnuts nor spices. In fact, it tasted simply like a sour beer.

750ml bottle poured into a shaker. This beer pours orange-yellow and murky with a large creamy head. The aroma is tart and fruity. This is a pretty sour beer but it has a saison feel to it. It’s okay but not really my style.

Pretty much tastes like pure brett with a slight hint of chestnuts. Has nice carbonation and a nice mouth feel. I like some Brett beers and a lot of sours; this was not one of them.
