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!

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

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 you’ve 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!

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.

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.

Another really cool label from JP with a fairy looking creature holding some sort of puzzle. This is a really bright orange color with a 1cm white head. The smell is funky, spicy, musty, and swampy. A little stinkier than the other Jolly Pumpkin beers I have had. The first taste is grassy, sour, and dry at the end. maybe some tart lemon flavor as it warms. 05/16/08 batch 244,245 Excellent orange appearance. Funky smell, herbal. Lemony spritzy flavor with an interesting finish. There is some sour going on but it is faint and enjoyable. Some biscuity malts and then a dry finish iwth sour edges.

Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Pours a slight hazy light amber with a three finger head. Smell is funky zesty crisp and fruity. Taste is lightly tart with a hint of apple and lime, lighter fluffy Belgian flavors. Very refreshing
