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!

Enjoyed at NoogFest III. 750ml bottle. Pours hazy orange with a big frothy head that never stops coming. Fairly light aroma with sweet hints of fruit and spicy yeast. Apple (?). The flavor is probably the best Ive had from a Jolly Pumpkin. Light spice and lemon fruit with that signature Jolly Pumpkin yeasty funky business. Nothing over powering like many of their others IMO. Saison like actually and enjoyable in flavor. Way too carbonated for me though (as is usual for their beers). However, overall I liked this one. It was refreshing.

Thanks to BgBurdman for sharing this at the last Columbus tasting. The aroma is sour and some funky grass smells as well. The pour was a golden brown with a small head. Slightly sour taste with a good bit of yeast and some tangy flavors as well. The mouthfeel was light with ample carbonation.

Bottle. Aroma has notes of yeast, citrus, amber malts, nutty earth. Medium hazy orange amber sparkling hue with a large rocky, foamy, off-white head that mostly lasted and left great lace. Flavor is earthy, nutty, amber malts, and a sour tart finish. Palate is light bodied and lively. Very drinkable with a nice sour finish but could use a little more flavor. Nice though.

light amber appearance with solid white head. flavor is incredibly unique, tasting almost like a gueze with acidic and sharp sourness that finishes very dry with some oak likely from the chestnut. a very enjoyable brew.

750mL shared by CanIHave4Beers! Batch 908 bottled on 11/4/11. Oh Ron, you dog you. Chestnuts?! Ok, clear nuts. Hazelnuts, or, probably chestnuts but I dont really know wtf a chestnut is like. Moderately sour. Earthy, with some cheese funk late in the flavor.

Was passed around at Harvest, Saturday evening. Pours a murky, hazed burnt orange with a minimal off-white head. Diminished quickly. Interesting aromas of nuts, earth/soil, hop oil and dog biscuits. Tastes practically the same, however it does have some yeast notes by mid-palate, as well some candied citrus, butterscotch, cinnamon and oak. Mild tartness by swallow. Enjoyable.
