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!

thewolf (12377) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 10, 2009
Bottle, bought @ lbutikken, Cph.
Pours clear amber with a nice, staying, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has notes of oranges, chestnuts, strawberries, ginger and brett. Some wood in there as well. Fine, dry mouthfeel. Light with a subtle small-bubbled carbonation. Flavour has some brett or white wine tartness, sweet caramel, nuts, ginger and yeast. Long, lingering, light tart aftertaste. Very drinkable.

DocLock (10480) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2009
This is the 1st of a roughly 100 beer backlog to be rated by the King of Suds. Bottle from Craft Ale. Pours clear deep caramelly coppery with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is earthy peaty, malty, with some piney and sour mashy fruit notes. Tastes tart, fruity, with earthy, nutty, and spicy notes at forefront, and a balanced malt late. Not terribly complex or palate hefty, this one is enjoyable but not an earth beater. I would not pay 20 bucks for this again, whatever that is worth.

furthur (1120) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - OCT 30, 2015
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.

smroush (259) - Michigan, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Sour aroma dominates, somewhat grassy underneath the sourness. Malts pretty subdued. Some spice, particularly mild clove. Cloudy amber color; moderate to heavy white head. Taste dominated by the sour flavor. Pretty dry. Moderate bitterness. Medium body; fairly thin texture; lively carbonation; finish is sour. Overall a decent beer, but the sourness dominates too much for my taste. I like the subtle spice, but overall the complexity is moderate at best.

jinroh (1458) - ESTONIA - MAR 27, 2016
Pours apple juice, Brownish orange, bit of white foam, not much foam. Aroma is sour but not much, at the same time not really getting much chestnut and nit that spicy. Brett funk and horse-blankety. Taste is also slight sour, more old apple bitterness, some funk and horseblanket. spices coming out at the end, bit of nuttiness also, maybe because I am really looking for it. Nice and enjoyable, not mind-blowing.

chucklemation (1577) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JUN 23, 2016
Pours a light brown with a foamy white head. Aroma is a spice that stands out with a sharp bite and lactic acid. Flavor is tart lactic acid and that same spice. The tartness has a bit of a bite to it, or maybe thats the spices used. Pretty good.

bartlebier (3821) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2016
2014 Vintage 75cl kindly shared by impuritylaw, merci! - Bref: wisely dosed spices join a host of gently stone fruit sours to make a gentle US crossover Belgian "sour" ale of convincing seasonal charm. - Cinnamon, oak and vanilla well dosed and balanced against apricot and lemon tartness in aroma. Aromas withdraw in flavour to make way for thinned out fruit caramels and a slight vinegar prickle (cf. De Leites instant sour Belgian ales). - A few notches behind Bam Noire due to overload, but still an original watercolour blending Belgian ale, US saison and US wild/sour.
