by Kelli H. on November 6, 2012

Beer: Bridgeport Witch Hunt
Date: 10-31-12
Location: Portland, OR
Type: Spiced Harvest Ale
Availability: Fall Seasonal
Price: Provided at my parents house, but I saw it at Whole Foods for about $7.99/six pack or maybe even $6.99.
Alcohol: 5.8%
IBU’s: 40

Aroma: Citrus hops

Appearance: Caramel with a beige head

Body & Texture: Good carbonation, smooth, easy drinking

Aftertaste: Light bitter taste, can’t taste any spices

Overall Impression:
How’d you spend your Halloween? Not sure why, but in these photos it almost looks sunny out. It wasn’t, it was definitely raining cats and dogs. David was in class until 8, so I went to my parents house for dinner which included this tasty brew and homemade Kelli’s Chili. Twas a nice night. You don’t eat dark chocolate reeses with your beer? You should probably try it.

This beer was  lighter in appearance than I expected, but I guess I didn’t have anything to base it off of. I thought the beer was a little sour and slightly bitter. It wasn’t what I was expecting. I couldn’t taste any spices which I thought was a tad unfortunate. One of the spices was nutmeg, which my mom hates, and she actually really liked this beer. I’d definitely have another one if offered this season. I’d probably even buy a six pack of it next Halloween. I mean, you can’t really get a more appropriate beer on Halloween than one called Witch Hunt. It’s worth it for the novelty alone! While Witch Hunt isn’t one of my new favorite beers, I was happy to taste a new one. Bridgeport always provides drinkable and affordable craft beer, and I really appreciate that!

Never had this beer before, and I don’t recall having seen it before. Where do you find all these different beers?

Whole Foods has a great selection of craft beer, or there is a place in town called Bottle Barn that also has a great selection. I don’t usually shop at BevMo, but they have a decent selection as well.
