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!

Nische (1994) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2016
Bottle from Beergium.com. Pours dark amber with white head. Quite tart with prominent chestnut, citrus, wet wood, christmas spices and a bit of cherry. A lot going on at the same time and its peculiarly delicious. Why did I only buy one bottle?

bartlebier (3562) - 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.

chucklemation (1476) - 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.

bastarda (445) - Freiburg, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2016
Kindly shared by [email protected] beery bachelor farewell, thanks a lot. nose: Patex morphing tenderly into rum raisins with quite a cinnamon presence; hints of lavender and sage. Taste brings a huge, ghostly cherry presence, cinnamon again, dry sherry notes with a tart, close to vinegary background. One extra point for the brewers poetic tasting notes: "Gentle amber malts lead smooth caramel notes, gently lapping against a shore of distant forgotten spice."

draft sampler that poured a slight cloudy yellow/orange with white head. nice slightly funky aroma some tartness on the nose. mild malt base. the flavor was excellent, mild spice notes with that little bit of tart and sour blended perfectly together. light and refreshing.
