topherh (1911) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - OCT 2, 2012

Cybercat (3226) - Georgia, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Malty, woody aroma has a hint of nutmeg, no surprise. Pours a clear, dark coppery with a thick and fluffy wheaten head. Flavor has a woody core and malty, earthy and cinnamon hints. Not strong, but OK, rather fall-like. Mouth feel has decent body and fizz. If not the best fall beer, worthy of at least a try.

IndianaRed (2331) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 30, 2012
On Tap at Brewforia Beer market, Meridian, ID. Clear medium mahogany, with a quick, sandy colord head. Big sweet aroma, sweet and spicy, cinnamon. Flavor is sweet, and of cinnamon red-hots. Very light bodied and just plain weak and watery. closer to kool-ade than beer. Meh

blutt59 (5999) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2012
bottle, orange color with tan head, one of the better fall spice beers, some nutmeg and caramel in the aroma with pumpkin spice, nutmeg, woody earthyness, nice medium finish

Jabic (409) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Ar: Hints of ginger and nutmeg, slight caramel. Ap: Clear orange - medium-small off-white head with gleaning thin cap of lacing. T: Cinnamon and nutmeg evident up front - toasted caramel with a light sweetness - somewhat tannic and acrid spice flavor emerges on the finish, mingled with low bitterness. P: Medium body with medium carbonation - finish is medium-dry. O: This beer seems a bit muddled, and the harsh spice finish needs some cleaning up.

weitz15 (379) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 15, 2012
The Witch Hunt seems more like a pale ale than a pumpkin ale---I can’t even taste the spice here. Somewhat dry, clean, and flavor heavy in grains.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Rubescent peachy amber sporting a chewy caramel fluff top. Candy apple and cinnamon notes sway off the fluff top. Soothing hints of fall in each breath. Somewhat thin body and a bit tinny, even though this came from a bottle. Watery caramel and apple skin ensconced in an amorphous cloud of seasonal spices.

DrinkEmUpJones (1062) - Georgia, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Clear red orange color with thin off white lacing. Great fall aroma of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. The palate has similar spices to those found in a pumpkin beer without a lot of the pumpkin coming forward. More of a pie crust note. Great fall beer especially for the price.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle. Caramel brown. Spicy aroma, lots of cinnamon and citrus. Medium bodied, more cinnamon and some pumpkin. Long nutmeg finish

boFNjackson (4110) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Bottle... Poured dark amber with a thin, beige head. Nose had spices similar to nutmeg, and malt. Foamy mouthfeel, worty and cinnamon and nutmeg spice. Not sure this was very successful. Overly unbalanced. Sugary. Mild hop tones but not enough to balance.
