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!

chucklemation (1501) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JUN 23, 2016
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.

Bottle; pour is murky dark golden with a fine bubbled off white head in this tulip. Retention is fairly nice, with some sticky lacing present. the nose is lemon grass, the distinct jolly pumpkin funk, with nutty brown malts. spicy pepper on the tongue, oak tannins and general nutty notes. there is a lingering bitterness as the brew finishes. perhaps slightly lacking overall, but another nice one from jp.

750ml from kryptic. Batch 244, 245. Damn I love this brewery. You know youve crossed fully over into beer geekdom when you get goosebumps at the mere thought of opening a bottle. This is one of those bottles. Beautiful bretty, woody and slightly funky nose. Plenty of spicy yeast, mustard and cheese. Pours a a slightly hazy bright copper with a huge bright white head. Perfect amount of tartness on the palate. Not overpowering and quite pleasant. New oak, spice (fennel?), toasted nuts, toasted malt. Mmmmm. Delicious. Creamy, fairly dry with just the right amount of carbonation as to not be distracting. Wonderful!

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2008 750ml Bottle, Batch #244,245, JP has a batch label on the bottle that I have not seen before (I picked up this bottle from the brewery), pours a hazy light amber brown with honey increments, has off-white bubbles that eventually thin and leave lacing, bottom of the bottle was completely covered with a coating of sediment, apple sourness, unripened apples, citrus fruits, faint sweet fragrances, faint spices and some funk earthiness, tart with some real faint caramel, faint lemon grapefruit citrus with a touch of leather(?), I noticed some spice sweetness as it warmed up a bit, the finish starts with grape skins and ends with a medium bitterness with dry sour tartness that lingers thereafter, every sip brought a tingle to my nostrils, letting the ale warm up increased the tingle and I found this ale easily drinkable at room temperature, I could not sense any alcohol in in aroma or taste, a nice gentle drinking ale.

doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 11, 2008
750ml bottle. Pours a cloudy orange color with a thin, crisp, white head. Smells faintly of spicy red wine and some oak, a hint of citrus maybe. Tastes yeasty at first and then the citrus and red wine flavors really burst in the middle and mellow on the finish. Somewhat thin body, crisp carbonation.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Rich golden orange pour with foamy white head that leaves very artistic lacing. Nose is that wonderful sour brett with some nutty notes. Flavor is tart sour, like pear or apple skins, with a drying tannic quality. Good earth and nut flavors too. Just washes beautifully around the mouth and finishes tart, acidic and drying. Another great beer from JP.

Maybe the best sour I think I have had. I have come to expect nothing but from jolly pumpkin.
