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!

Reddish pour with a nice sour aroma of species and chestnut. A really good flavor and a nice bite. Good stuff!

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2008
2007 bottle. Nice golden-orange color with a pleasant, oaky aroma that features some pleasant sourness, spices, and citrus. Flavor has a nice citrus bite with a bit of bretty sourness that is well balanced with gentle spices, oak, and assorted fruits. Nice mouthfeel. This is a classic example of why JP rules!

Pours a light brown with a foamy white head. Aroma is a spice that stands out with a sharp bite and lactic acid. Flavor is tart lactic acid and that same spice. The tartness has a bit of a bite to it, or maybe thats the spices used. Pretty good.

jzzbassman (1619) - Arlington, Texas, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Pours a clear penny color with a small fizzy white head. Bretty earthy aroma, with some nuttiness. Flavor has wine-like tannins, with pepper, oak, and smooth caramel malts.

Bomber. Hazy gold with a white head. Light funk and spice aromas. Fruity and tart.

Danyel (1606) - Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Smells floral. Color is golden and cloudy. Light body, light sour touch, spicy. Flavor disappears fast, not a fan of this beer.

750 ml bottle @ liquid sunshine tasting - big thanks to bvc for this bad boy; light amber with slight head; big, sweet aromas of sour apples and cherries; drinks on the light side with a nice zing; flavors primarily lemons, cherries; raw and grainy; sourness is muted and soft; drinks very smooth; yummy

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - FEB 6, 2007
From a capped 750 ml. bottle with a blurb on the right side of label, no freshness date. Poured a amberish orange with a fluffy, foamy head, decent retention. Aromas of toasted malts, caramel, sweet spices, nutty, a light citrus fruitiness and earthy yeast. Good carbonation and a crisp, dry, velvety smooth light-medium bodied mouthfeel. Pleasant tasting, a soft tart orangey/lemony fruitiness, toasted caramel with some a little roastiness, toasted chestnuts, nutmeg and sugar, clove and coriander, earthy, bready yeast, a vanilla woodiness, a nice hop bite, and a dry malty, yeasty finish. Another tasty ale from Jolly Pumpkin, well worth trying.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Popped off the cap and a steady flow of foam came out and wouldnt stop - I had to pour it into 3 separate glasses. After all that, I had a glass of a muddy dark red clay-colored brew with an off-white head. Right off the bat, this smells the least funky of the JP brews Ive had to date (all but the Calabaza). The light funk is there along with a nuttiness and some fall spices. The taste was pleasantly funky, dancing around on the palate and complimenting the spices. The finish is dry and theres more sour on the back end than I expected. Probably the most subtle of JPs brews.

3.6
porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JAN 29, 2012
(750 ml (batch 899/900, bottled 10-7-2011) from Oak Street Provisions) Pours cloudy amber-gold with an off-white head. Aroma of fruit and spice. Mouthfeel smooth, medium-full. Taste is tart, medium sour, citrus, spice and yeast.
