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!

Bottle to glass. Dark brownish amber pour with a thick white head. Nose is a bit funky and spicy and sweet. Taste is funky with spices. Oak aging provides nice smoothness in flavor and body.

Pours a light gold in color. Plenty of nice rocky head. Nice web lacing on sides of the glass. Smell is funk and some tartiness. Taste is very nice. Lots of nice sour, tartness coming through. Good amount of spice to compliment the tartness. Good, smooth mouthfeel. Another good offering from JP.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2015 A delightful beverage. I enjoy a mixture of the sour/wild ale & the Belgium style ale. This brew will affect your palate slightly. The appearance was wonderful. Overall it is better than the average beer beverage and I would enjoy having this again.

kopher (593) - New York, USA - DEC 31, 2011
aroma is tart and roasty with some barnyard and caramel -- a very nice combination. it pours a light rusty orange with small white head. flavor is mostly a smooth sourness, maybe some nuttiness in there but not much. really a very nice mild sour ale, finish is bitter and somewhat astringent, but its nicely balanced.

Gushed would almost be an understatment! Even after pouring over 12 oz. out of the bottle this continued to foam over. Aromas are of funk, apple cider, cinnamon and caramelvery Fall and reminds me of apple doughnuts from the apple orchards in the Fall. In the mouth it is tart and sour with the funkiness from the nose running throghout. Recently I have had some overly funked Jolly Pumpkin’s but this one was quite good.

Slight sour/funk aroma. Amber/peach in color and clear with no head. Light sourness, finishes with faint hop and funk

Foxy orange, effervescent. "Autumnal" aroma - wet leaves, brett. Citric flavor (orange, kumquat), barnyard, dry-out effect. Quite refreshing, very tasty, interesting, unique, and very drinkable. One of my favorite JP beers now.

JAXSON (576) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2009
750ml bottle, Oct. 2008 batch. Having had this beer several times, I can say it needs at least three months after its released to really come into its own. It was released way too young IMO. Moving on, it pours a really beautiful glowing, reddish honey with a pillowy beige head. Awesome. Gorgeous, vintage Jolly Pumpkin nose - softly-integrated brett, sour tropical fruits, and of course oak. The flavor is vinous, subtle, and refreshing. There is not that burst of flavor you might expect though. This could be a phenomenal beer if the flavors were more pronounced. I still really like it.

dmschefke (576) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2009
Pours a light amber orange, a bit hazy and some sediment, thick white head that leaves lots of lacing and sticks around for entire drink. Aroma of tart fruits, slight malt, lots of spice, and a little bit of nuts. Flavor is smooth with obvious tart fruit (mostly perfectly ripe cherries), spices, herbs, and a little grapefruit bitterness in the back. Mouthfeel is lively with decent carbonation, slightly slick and then ends dry. Really quite enjoyable.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Pours cloudy, orange-brown, with a fine-white head. Aroma is spicy, a lot of cinnamon, nutmeg, and other "spicy spices" are in there. Rather sour smelling. Light-moderate mouth feel. Strong sour quality to the flavor. Spicy flavors with some citrus bitterness in there. Interesting.
