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!

Complex beer, vibrant and distinct...aroma is amazing and the taste is very sweet yet sour.

wlajwl (6749) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 24, 2017
Aroma is Belgian yeast, fruit/berries/mild bubblegum and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is fruit/berries, slightly nutty, malts and a very tart finish.

KyotoLefty (10207) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 17, 2017
Bottle, about 2 years old now. Spicy, cakelike nose, chestnuts, caramel. Glowing orange-amber, clear, with lace. Sweet and sour flavor, spicy, chestnuts, yogurt, pumpkin pie spice. The spice is a bit overdone, but it is pretty good.

Bottle in Austin ("Vintage Reserve 2015"). Some brett and fruit in the aroma but not that strong. But the taste is super complex while also being well-balanced -- bretty, chestnuts, peaches, citrus, oak and a nice spicy finish. Tasted better the closer to cellar temp that it got, the flavors really shined through where when cold it was a bit underwhelming. Strong beer, a bother solid wild ale from JP.

On Tap @ ChurchKey, Washington, DC - Poured light, cloudy amber-gold. Light sweet citrus aromas with earth yeast/bread tones. Flavor complex and balanced... lots of different noted to enjoy... bright citrus, earthy chestnut, subtle spice, and a bit of saison . Moderate body. Clean finish. Overall, its easier to load a beer with something to make an impression - this beer maintains balance and complexity without a big hit of one or another flavor. My favorite in a side by side tasting of three.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Fajny, owocowy Brett, przyjemna kwasowość, bogata słodowość z ciekawym motywem ciasteczek. Dobra rzecz.

Light White pepper aroma, a zesty, refreshing green fruit flavour. Delicious .

Theydon_Bois (19200) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2017
Keg at BD Shoreditch, 23/01/16. Lightly hazed golden yellow with a decent off white head. Nose is on the thin side comprising lemon rind, straw, yeast esters, bread dough. Taste comprises light malts, fruit tang, caramel, spice, grains, lemon drizzle. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so … whelming for the style and doesn’t do a lot for me.

3.3
Heidbummer (611) - SCOTLAND - JAN 24, 2017
Pours cloudy amber, lacy head. Hint of caramel on the nose, and something nutty It’s a little bit thin for me, and there’s a sourness masking the caramel I couldn’t get past. It’s decent, but not a big hitter for me.
