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.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy reddish/amber color with about an inch tan head. The head retention is good, and there’s a decent amount of lacing left on the glass. The brew smells like honey, caramel malt, oranges, candy sugar, and some sweet spices. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s the addition of some rye and an earthy/musty flavor. There’s also a lingering bittersweet finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick and has very high but soft carbonation. I think it’s a decent brew, and it’s worth a try if you’ve never had it before. I’d like to try this on tap in the future.

22oz bottle in a shaker. Pours deep amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of caramel malts, spicy yeast, some light wheat, and floral hops. Flavor about the same, strong on spice and wheat. Average texture. A decent beer.

22 ounce from Louisville Beer Store. Not a Belgian wit. Malty and caramel tasting hoppy red. Honey dominates with sugar sweetness. Still, very good.

Bomber. Deep amber body. Off-white head, fizzy, diminishing. Aroma of honey, caramel, basement, toasted grain, orange. Slight hint of wet concrete. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, sticky texture, moderate carbonation. Notes of a quad in its sweetness and slight mustiness. Taste of honey, rye, fruits, citrus, grass. Unique.

on draft...has dark amber color with light colored head...lots of things happening in this beer and not so sure one doesnt detract from the other. you get the sweet candy from the belgium style ale then you get that bit of hoppiness that comes in the middle and again the sweet belgian candy with a touch of honey mixed in...it is on the sweet side and possibly aging would make this a different flavor i am not sure. but it was decent enough to drink...

On tap at GTMW (2011)

A light and refreshing contrast to the headier offerings this witbier woke up a tired palate. The caramel colored body shimmered by the rainy light. Thin legs crept down the sides. A cloudy base released malt and yeast in equal parts. Tamed by the addition of the honey and rye I think this one would be nice alongside a pizza or other meal at the brewpub.

Amber pour with tan head and lace. Light caramel malt and paper aroma. Super sweet malt with a medium bitter finish. Medium bodied and fizzy.

Ok, but a little too light for a wit. It may be better on a hot summer day.
