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!

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.

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.

bartlebier (3632) - 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.

mgajdaczewa (1858) - Katowice, POLAND - DEC 19, 2016
W aromacie owocowo, brzoskwiniowo, jabłkowo, lekko słodowo, jest też ziemista nuta orzechowa, ciekawie. W smaku wytrawne, mniej kwaśne, lekko orzechowo - ziemiste, kwiatowe, po ogrzaniu lekko herbaciane. Udane i smaczne, ale troszeczkę niedopracowane, jest potencjał na więcej.

omhper (24088) - Tyres, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2006
Bottled. Cloudy dark orange. Lightly acidic fruit aroma with medicinal notes. Dry and fruity with lively mouthfeel. Notes of melon and a light, lambic-like lactic acidity. Feels fresh and has a lot of complex flavours, but the medicinal notes are on the strong side.

750. Beer is cloudy, medium caramel brown with a large, pale pink, frothy, mostly lasting, diminishing head.<P>The aroma is malty with moderate notes of toasted grain, trace caramel and light cookie; Hoppy with light notes of grapefruit oil, resin/pine, trace floral; Yeasty with light notes of basement, trace of dough and horseblanket; Moderate miscellaneous note of alcohol, decompsing leaf and apple. Reminds me a bit of Medovinas harvest Cyzer. <P>The flavor is moderately acidic/sour, lightly bittersweet with a long, lightly bitter, lightly acidic/sour finish. <P>The body is medium, the texture is velvety and the carbonation is average.

Light brown with a few particulates, small head. Bold aroma, spicy and sour, pumpkin. Taste is sour and bitter up front. Light spiciness. Mild yeastiness. Finish is exceptionally clean. Body was a little too watery for me.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 25, 2006
750 from Beer World of Largo. <P> The body is a murkey orange/brown with a large (two and a half fingers thick) off white head that is craggy and lasting. Aroma is sharp, slightly herbal, lightly sour and musty. <P> Fore is soft and smooth with a cuddly kind of acidity. Its lightly nutty, dry, musty-yeasty and slightly sour. Not nearly as good as I built it up in my head. I guess you run that risk with beers like Ron makes. This is a little too low key overall for my tastes. Its soft and sippable, but I find myself wanting more flavor concentration and wondering if it really has any spice in it.
