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!

750ml bottle. What a gusher. I think Ron owes me some of my money back. Pours orange working on brown. Thick off white head with brown spec and good lace. Light barrel nose and lightly nutty. Tart dry oaky flavor. Not much funk. Nutty and peppery. Medium body. High carbonation. Dry finish. Not the typical JP.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2006
Great appearence with a pillowy foam. Im not sure I like the subtle wild yeast character. The same character was present in both Biere De Mars and Bam Biere, and Im still unsure about it. After the mid-palate, some interesting fruit character comes out. The mouthfeel is nice and chewy. I wish it had more barrel character however. More oak please. Pretty good and unique. Dont worry Ernest, Ive got another bottle to share with you!

Pours a hazy amber or light copper color with a thick lacy tan head. Smells of light sourness and grapes, oranges, and other citrus fruits. Tastes of sour citrus with hints of cinnamon and other spices. A little bitterness on the bck of the tongue, but very full bodied as a whole with a nice smooth finish. Very nice brew.

tfredvik (1849) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2014
Medium amber body with a... hey, whats that smell? A strong aroma of mint? Also gentle bretty hints. Lots of mint in the flavours as well, this is like drinking a mint bubblegum. Also herbs and a gentle wildness. A fun thing with the mint, but its just a bit too much for me.

jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2007
Bottle. Thanks to mcbackus for sending me this! Gusher! Pours a cloudy orange/amber body with huge head. Aroma is of spices, nutmeg, cloves, yeast, and caramel. Flavor is sweet, spices lay down smoothly on the tongue. Well carbonated, made a small look in comparison to Choufee. Smooth and enjoyable. Finishes in a dry sweet flavor.

keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Batch 901, Bottled October 19, 2011.
Appearance: The body is a hazy light amber with a tall white head that dissipates rather quickly to a dense white coating with a tall ring.
Aroma: Slight Autumn spices of cinnamon and clove with a light fruity tartness I cant put my finger on, cherries? Hints of red wine vinegar too. This smells great.
Taste: Mildly tart with a small hint of vinegar, but it quickly picks up on a dry nutty and cinnamon/nutmeg finish that abruptly stops. Sort of a potpourri finish.
Palate: Light bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: I wonder if this has gotten more tart with age or lost it, I also wonder if the body was more beefy fresh. This drinks nicely now, though I wish Id saved it for a nice Autumn night.
