Fuego del Otoño (Autumn Fire) by Jolly Pumpkin is 6.10%ABV Bière de Garde brewed with Chestnuts and spices. This is the second time I try this beer. The fall is coming in and setting fast. First of all, for many who do not like sour beers, this may not be for you. For those that like somewhat sour and like to explore, this is one delicious.
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! Fragrance of tangy grape, campfire, trees in the fall and orange. Flavors of caramel, roasted chestnuts, pecans, smokey glazed ham notes, oak wood (like campfire wood), herbs, orange but not to the level of Maracaibo sweet, cherries, lemon, cinnamon, apples, wine grapes, grapefruit, tea leaves and llerba buena. Definitely grasps what fall would be like as it would taste. As you go deeper into the beer, the less the sourness is there and you begin to appreciate what this beer is truly all about. Fan of sours or somewhat sours would definitely get a major kick of this.
If camping in the fall and doing a campfire had a taste, this would probably be it. The beer has a nice sour and tangy taste to it (Jolly Pumpkin Style). A beer brewed in chestnuts and all sorts of spices. A smooth caramel flavor exist from the malts and has a nice oak finish to it. 6.1% ABV but this one is sure meant to be enjoyed slowly
