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!

Christian (13341) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 24, 2009
Cloudy amber with a lasting white head. Aroma has fresh oak, coconut and bourbon notes on top of grapefruit and brett. Dry and tart grapefruit and brett flavour with a strong tannin character, with a faint note of christmas spices and possibly a nutty touch. There is a little spicy hotness in the finish.

750 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazed golden amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted until mid-glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of malt, tart fruit, and some spice. The flavor is malt, yeast, tart fruit and spice all well represented and harmoniously combined. I am not getting any of the chestnut at all, but that is not detracting me from enjoying this beer. Lively carbonation. A bit spritzy on the palate. Enjoyable.

bfeldmann (1050) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 15, 2009
Wow POP it went upon opening it. Pour was cloudy orange color. Aroma was lots of different spices going on there, yeast light fruits mostly grapes I guess. Flavor was much the same, was a little thin on the flavor side, old lady floral came out in the flavor not good taste. Not bad not good.

DocLock (10471) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2009
This is the 1st of a roughly 100 beer backlog to be rated by the King of Suds. Bottle from Craft Ale. Pours clear deep caramelly coppery with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is earthy peaty, malty, with some piney and sour mashy fruit notes. Tastes tart, fruity, with earthy, nutty, and spicy notes at forefront, and a balanced malt late. Not terribly complex or palate hefty, this one is enjoyable but not an earth beater. I would not pay 20 bucks for this again, whatever that is worth.

thewolf (12373) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 10, 2009
Bottle, bought @ lbutikken, Cph.
Pours clear amber with a nice, staying, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has notes of oranges, chestnuts, strawberries, ginger and brett. Some wood in there as well. Fine, dry mouthfeel. Light with a subtle small-bubbled carbonation. Flavour has some brett or white wine tartness, sweet caramel, nuts, ginger and yeast. Long, lingering, light tart aftertaste. Very drinkable.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2009
Orange-amber in colour with a very large and long lasting white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is yeasty, light spice, berries, some wood with a moderate sweetness. The flavour is yeasty/musty, quite fruity, apple and green grape tartness, very light spice but the sweetness is a bit more pronounced. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium/light body, high carbonation. Finishes lightly spicy, yeasty and quite long.

This had some insane carbonation making it very hard to pour. Toning that down will make this a bit more drinkable.

750ml bottle obtained in a trade with Beerlando, thanks Bryan.
Opened on December 15, 2008.
Bottle from 2007.

Gabler (87) - , New York, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Poured dark orange. Sour, yeasty aroma. Light-medium body, very dry mouthfeel. Funky palate, almost gueze-like. Cherry undertones, agressive yeast throughout. Dry finish. Very drinkable ale...
