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!

Bottle. Hazy gold to amber pour with white head. Nose is lightly soured toasted malt, gentle spice, lemon, and floral esters. Slight funky with some wet hay. Flavor is light toasted malt with lemon citrus sour, pinot, spice, herbal mint, and toasted chestnut. Lingering lemon sour and toasted malt. fall-like in profile with gentle funkiness adding almost a dried leaf aspect. Light and crisp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks Greg for sharing the bottle! Poured into a wineglass showing a finger of clean white foam and dry orange peel. The nose shows light cooking spices but mainly a mix of Bretty funk, dry apricot/citric zest, and hints of oak barrel. The palate is well carbonated and light bodied. Flavors of dry apricot, light tartness, a hoppy bitter finish and a citric zesty spiciness.

Beachmaster (475) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 8, 2016
Bomber into a tulip. Pours a cloudy amber/orange, with a small white head that rapidly dissipates. Nose is vinegary Belgian yeast and spices. Taste is sublime-moderately tart beginning which gives way to light caramel and malt, followed by a nice spice finish. Soft carbonation, with a long finish. Very, very nice.

Bottle. Pours golden with white 1 finger head. Aroma has light Duchesse notes. Vinegar, fruity, grapes, cherry, malts, some peach and light nutty. Taste is light and delicate. Spices are there. Lige a krydderkage. Some yam. Prickling carbonation and light peppery dry finish.

Vestergaard (1907) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle at Fermentoren Aarhus thanks to Mads! Pours hazy orange with a small, White, creamy head. Aroma is tart, fruity, peachy, spicy. Taste is smooth, dry, tart, leathery, peachy, and with a long, wooden aftertaste with green-stick-dryness and a subtle nutty sweetness. Juicy. Citric. Tasty. Average carbonation and an oily, juicy body ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

smroush (233) - Michigan, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Sour aroma dominates, somewhat grassy underneath the sourness. Malts pretty subdued. Some spice, particularly mild clove. Cloudy amber color; moderate to heavy white head. Taste dominated by the sour flavor. Pretty dry. Moderate bitterness. Medium body; fairly thin texture; lively carbonation; finish is sour. Overall a decent beer, but the sourness dominates too much for my taste. I like the subtle spice, but overall the complexity is moderate at best.

ebone1988 (1530) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Aroma is light sour, funk, skins. Appearance is amber golden, off white head. Taste is lightly sour, malt, bitter from hops (possibly) not much else. Mouthfeel is medium body and crisp carbonation. Overall, not real impressive for my first Jolly Pumpkin.

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
