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!

Rune (11632) - Troms, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2014
Sampled from a big bottle. Amber-gold body, fine lacing from a fair white head. Tart and sweet aromas, mix of caramel and red berries. More of the same to the taste buds; Almond, leafy hops, caramel, and tart red berries. Dry, tart and a bit spicy to the ending. Aright, but really not my kind of beer (Grand Tasting, RBNG, Halden 15.02.2014).

Cuvee de autumn fire, a funky jolly pumpkin. Not as vinegary, bold, as the brown ale had earlier in the tasting. Orangey colour. Spicey, hint of roast,drinkable.

Tasting at mcbackus. Hazy apricot color. Funky, woody aroma. Funk, sour, tart, woody flavor. Again I just cannot get into sours. This one was ok, just not my style.
