COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian Rye Wit. Those hardy immigrant gnomes who came from the venerable hills of the Ardennes to take up residence beneath the mysterious Knobs of Southern Indiana get lonely, too. That’s why NABC gave them Tunnel Vision, a potion reminiscent of home, and sufficiently versatile for consumption in all seasons — and on all continents.

Lubiere (9877) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2004
(draft- Indiana brewers fest) Hazy light golden beer with a nice banana and spice aroma. Excellent warmth from alcohol and pleasant sweet malts and coriander with bubblegum. Well balanced.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - AUG 16, 2004
From the Indiana Brewers Guild Brew Fest- 7/31/2004. A bit cloudy and on the light yellow side. The aroma was fairly yeasty with a citrus bitterness emerging just before my first sip. The flavor was a bit spiced or herbed and then quite yeasty.

barenada (211) - Georgetown, Indiana, USA - AUG 7, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2005 (draft) I’ve gone ahead and updated this rating as this beer has become one of my favorites. Very little head, and the beer is a little flat. But the rye and honey play together quite nicely. One of the few semi-strong beers that I can get my swill-drinking friends to drink.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 16, 2004
Sample at the brewpub. Lemon-lime spicy, very light in color which belies the huge full body. Very yeasty...herbal and pungent to finish, not perhaps as thirst-quenching as a wit might be, but interesting with the big thick body.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - JUL 26, 2003
Draft: Sweet, sweet nose - malt, but mostly honey. A cloudy brown with next to no head. Again the sweetness in the flavor. Okay, but not their best.

FastEddie (230) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 22, 2003
Darker amber color with a little lace and not much head. Flavor is very straight, to the point. Citrusy and a little smoky but not too complex. Good kind of bitterness. Pretty good stuff.

TAR (2468) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2002
Draft: Hazy orange liquid atop an attractive white foam. The aroma was quite enticing: White pepper notes first grabbed me, followed by fresh oranges, hint of doughiness, flowers, rubber, bread, goat cheese, and mint. The assertive flavors display a delicious, yet straightforward floral/orange intervention. Finishes citric with a touch of breadiness and coconut. Nice hop burps, probably from the dry-hopping. Nothing overly complex, but is well on its way to being a top-notch Wit. Perhaps a bit much honey and not enough Hallertau emphasis. Otherwise, extremely quaffable and a dangerous drinker.
