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 I’ve 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 bbuckets tasting group. Sugary sweet apple and a good dose of funk with a little oak. Not overly sour, and very drinkable.

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 don’t really know wtf a chestnut is like. Moderately sour. Earthy, with some cheese funk late in the flavor.

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.

750 ml bottle at Logans Alley. Wonderful amount of pleasant sourness with a nice hint of cinnamon and chestnuts. Delicious anytime of the year.

Robe orange surmontée d’une mousse blanche épaisse en dentelle qui s’estompe. Arômes acidulés d’épices et de gomme balloune. Saveurs d’épices et de houblon amérisant.
