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!

Glowing hazy pink peach. Cherry sour scents. Crisp sour start that turns to a slowly fading spiced finish. Flavors to guide you from summer to winter.

ContemplateBeer (1971) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Aroma: Apple cider vinegar, caramel, cinnamon, slightly nutty. Appearance: Slightly hazy dark caramel color with a whipped bone head that settles into a creamy tuft. Flavor: Like a tart, cinnamon topped caramel apple at a fall festival; nuttiness only shows up a bit in the finish. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Loved it; a beautiful beer all around.

Enjoyed at the Tosa YeHA 2005, provided by Brad, many thanks!

Displayed a coppery hue with a lasting head and very good lacing. The nose has a yeasty and wheaty character with a noticeable cherry and apricot twang and some of those chestnut aromas are there as well. The flavor starts tart, funky, and fruity with a nice grain background. It developed a woody and earthy undertone before a light spice (Grains of Paradise, clove ?) and bitter finish. The feel is crisp and refreshing with a dry finish. Yet another so yummy brew by Ron, gotta get more!

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 7, 2006
750ml bottle. Pours a bright amber color with a small off white head. Nose is very spicy, coriander, light sweetness, some pepper, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Taste is once again a nice belgian like spiciness. Has some light caramel notes, more coriander and nutmeg to it.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 28, 2006
Cloudy dark amber, thick foamy off white head. Another fantastic JP nose with notes of spiced vanilla, soft funky barnyard, lemon rind, oak, and faint nutty caramel. Flavor is similar to the aromas, but adds an overall tart, tangy, earthy tone to it. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, tangy, lightly spiced finish. JP is the master when it comes to barrel-aging. It never overwhelms, just strictly complements. Thanks for sharing hopscotch...

I forgot to rate this one. Poured a darker amber with a minimal white head. Aroma was sweet yeast and spice...loads of fresh citrus and mellon. Aroma was spicey and tart...typical jolly pumpkin. Mouthfeel is fantastic.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2006
I really like this beer from JP. Dark orange body, thin white head. Slightly musty, and earthy, yet it retains a bit of fruitiness in the flavor as well. Some caramel malt, but its quite sour. Interesting and complex.

bu11zeye (12604) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2007
(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy amber body with a medium white head. Aroma of wood, herbs, spruce, cherry sourness, mustiness, and earthiness. Flavor is a sour funky delight with some woodiness and apple. Another superb Belgian from JP!

TURDFERGUSON (4042) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 8, 2007
Bottle from my parents trip to Minnesota a year ago. Sweet! Pours a dark golden with a huge white head. Nose is pungent with nutmeg, brett, chestnuts, cinnamon. Flavor is more sour and oaky, with notes of chestnut and cinnamon. This is a really wonderful, summer, winter...enjoy anytime type of beer. Thanks again, Ron. You Rock!
