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!

Batch 244,245
Tasted on 12/2/12 from a capped 750mL bottle given to me by a very generous member of the beer community. Pours clear copper-orange with a very thick and fluffy white head that slowly recedes to thick, but even lace. The nose is lightly tart with some spices, perhaps cardamom, and a bit of caramel malt with some candied orange peel. The flavor is quite a bit more sour than I anticipated, with plenty of citrus peel, the same spices from the nose, and the malt a little lighter than the nose. The body is light with lively carbonation and a long, sour, and lightly bitter citrus peel and spiced finish.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Fajny, owocowy Brett, przyjemna kwasowość, bogata słodowość z ciekawym motywem ciasteczek. Dobra rzecz.

Theydon_Bois (18199) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2017
Keg at BD Shoreditch, 23/01/16. Lightly hazed golden yellow with a decent off white head. Nose is on the thin side comprising lemon rind, straw, yeast esters, bread dough. Taste comprises light malts, fruit tang, caramel, spice, grains, lemon drizzle. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so whelming for the style and doesnt do a lot for me.

Pours cloudy amber, lacy head. Hint of caramel on the nose, and something nutty Its a little bit thin for me, and theres a sourness masking the caramel I couldnt get past. Its decent, but not a big hitter for me.

MelvinKalksma (1300) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, fruit, cherry, bread, chestnut, citrus, spices and brettanomyces.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque golden/amber beer with medium yeast and with a medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, fruit and cherry; ends slightly bitter, dry and sour with bread, chestnut, citrus, spices and brettanomyces.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. So much going on in this one, there are so many flavours. The aroma could have been stronger however. Amazing that they made this work as good as they did.

W aromacie owocowo, brzoskwiniowo, jabłkowo, lekko słodowo, jest też ziemista nuta orzechowa, ciekawie. W smaku wytrawne, mniej kwaśne, lekko orzechowo - ziemiste, kwiatowe, po ogrzaniu lekko herbaciane. Udane i smaczne, ale troszeczkę niedopracowane, jest potencjał na więcej.
