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!

Glowing hazy pink peach. Cherry sour scents. Crisp sour start that turns to a slowly fading spiced finish. Flavors to guide you from summer to winter.

Hazy orange gold, thin white lacing. Mildly sour nose white notes of cherry, pumpkin, nutmeg and clove. The flavors are much of the same-delicious and complex with only a slight sour note. Love.

Draft at anchorage brewing, orange amber beer, nice creamy white head, good lace. Aroma is subtle, slightly roasty lemon. Taste is salty, lemon, lime, peach, and earthy chestnuts. Palate light, carbonation soft and subdued.

Cloudy amber with a huge head. Good lacing and rocky foam. Aroma was sour bret, oak, caramel, citrus and spice. Tangy texture and medium body. My favorite JP yet; Sweet citrus and spice, and less sour than many of their other brews.

Thanks Greg for sharing the bottle! Poured into a wineglass showing a finger of clean white foam and dry orange peel. The nose shows light cooking spices but mainly a mix of Bretty funk, dry apricot/citric zest, and hints of oak barrel. The palate is well carbonated and light bodied. Flavors of dry apricot, light tartness, a hoppy bitter finish and a citric zesty spiciness.

Wow POP it went upon opening it. Pour was cloudy orange color. Aroma was lots of different spices going on there, yeast light fruits mostly grapes I guess. Flavor was much the same, was a little thin on the flavor side, old lady floral came out in the flavor not good taste. Not bad not good.

Amber pour, huge very carbonated white head, pour this slow! Aroma is cherries, apple cider, and very yeast and perfumey. Flavor is really unique caramel malts, almost a drier raspberry malt profile, with a nutty finish. Very drinkable, very smooth, its really quenching my thirst and went extremely well with steak & potatoes I know you could say that about water, pop, or any other crappy beer but no this was a showcase of how beer goes with food. Fruity but in a drier way where it has a slight sourness but not much. Again more fruits with apples, pears, raspberries, cherries, leading to a nutty biscuity finish and a dry fruity aftertaste. Really Im having a very hard time describing this beer its so freakin complex, its delicious, a summer thirst quencher, a beer with my meal, or just a dessert all on its own this beer rules. The carbonation is very big but really it helps highlight the complexities of this delight. The more it warms the fruits really come out and I think I like this beer colder. Some bitter fruitness barley-wine like is coming through and the fruits are getting sharper. What needs to be said is try this beer, it will open up your mind. This isnt the best tasting beer Ive had but its so complex and should be tried at least one, really this beer is stunning.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle. Light funky and fruity nose. Cloudy orange with a big thick bubbly white head. Nice lacing. Nice sourness but not much in the finish. A bit thin. Not on par with the depth and complexity I’ve come to expect from JP.

Bottle. Clean, crisp, dry, Belgian-style amber ale w/ a hint of oak and mild sour notes. Nice, drinkable brew.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2009
Bottle, courtesy sebletitje. Pours a hazy mango and copper color, with a fizzy white head and lacing. Aromas of spicy hoppiness, and mostly brett, dry clove, and cinnamon. Some apple cider too. Flavor is very dry with a bretty element with bread, cereal, and a spicy body gives way to a crunchy interesting finish. Very interesting character, doesnt work THAT well but its still drinkable.
