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!

mcberko (16597) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
On tap at Saraveza, pours a cloudy dark orange with a small white head. Aroma of chestnuts, spices, farmhouse yeast and light smoked notes. Flavour brings out earthy farmhouse notes, spices, and toasted nuts. Finishes lightly tart and earthy. Nice depth and balance to this. Great one.

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 17, 2011
A: The pour is a slightly hazed peach color with a large white head, maybe just a bit off-white. S: The nose has the signature tartness of Jolly Pumpkin with a lot of hibiscus notes to it. Quite a bit of funkiness to it with notes of hay and wet oak. Theres a bit of a lemon zest note to it, too. T: A strong flavor of chestnuts comes through and provides a strongly "meaty" flavor. The tartness here is minor, but certainly noticeable. Again, lots of floral notes, specifically hibiscus, with a bit of rose petals. Quite a bit of spice to it, also, but I dont really notice anything in particular. M: The body is medium with a medium but lively carbonation. D: Even for a Jolly Pumpkin beer, this is pretty interesting. I liked it quite a bit, but its definitely different from most of their beers.

Dedollewaitor (15905) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 29, 2009
75cl bottle at VV tasting, Odense. Batch 335. Pours amber orange with a small creamy white head. Nose is funky - barnyard, oak, brett and hops. Lively mouthfeel - close to spritzy. Dry and warm taste with hops, oak, brett and vanilla. A little tart & yeasty. Very nice and complex beer.

FatPhil (15563) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 15, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2009 750ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) - shared by oh6gdx - thanks!
Deep orange, small head. Bizarre aroma - odd fruitiness and brett acidity, but with a noticeable malt component too. Palate crisp. Orange taste, some dry spices too, old cloves perhaps, and a touch of soap. Sourness doesnt fit in perfectly. Certainly interesting and well-made beer (though the brett is clearly not spontaneous, and sticks out a mile), but not my style.

Bottle at Jacobs - Southern Lord Day. Batch 335. Cloudy amber - white head. Brett, nutty, soapy, fruity, oak, wood, caramel, nice malty, dryness, light flowery. Nice.

bhensonb (14887) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 26, 2008
Bottle from John’s Marketplace in Portland, OR. Pours a hazy orange tinged amber. Creamy beige head. Slightly sour aroma. A bit peachy. Medium body with mild creamy carbonation. Flavor is a bit like light stone fruit. The sour moderates a bit towards the finish. Very refreshing. Turns a bit citus after awhile.
