COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unfiltered in bottle and keg.
Pierre Celis created the original Hoegaarden beer in the early 1960’s. Interbrew-Labatt bought the brand and the brewery in the 1980's. Pierre Celis formed a new brewery in Austin Texas, brewing the same beer but under the brand name Celis White. Miller bought the Celis brewery and the Celis White brand-name in 1996. The brewery closed in 2000. In late 2002 Michigan Brewing bought the Celis White brand from Miller. Brouwerij Van Steenberge is now brewing the original Pierre Celis White under the brand-name Celis White in Europe and Ertveld's Wit in North America.

Nice white head with rich aroma. Taste in general light but a lot of fruit flavour. Best for spicy hot pot.

Wow! Lots of wood and fruit in the aroma. Pours hazy yellow with a big pure white head. I think I hated this as a kid, but then grew up. Anyway, drinking a Belgian made Celis white in Xinghe China from my hometown’s namesake is like heaven.

apickles (436) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2016
Pours a hazy lemon in the glass with a rim of cream head round the edge of the glass. Nose is a little citrus, maybe grapefruit mostly. Creamy in the mouth with quite a bit of fizz. Not loads of taste and a little sodary but quite refreshing.

sebletitje (9089) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2016
Bouteille 33cl sous ’Gentse Mannekes Pies’, no BB. Dorée, trop claire-propre pour s’apparenter à une blanche, col blanc fin, hugh gusher. Arôme offre un bouquet plaisant citronné, rétro fin épicé de coriandre, malt, cave et levure âgée. Palais est malté léger biscuité mais de suite ponctué par un malt froment et de suite une fine note d’amertume houblonnée. Effervescence moyenne-haute, résiduel levure avec une fin agrumes-écorce. Semble passée de date.

josanguapo (1051) - SPAIN - APR 27, 2016
From elcervecero. In Teku glass. After dinner. Very pleasant aroma and taste, with just the adequate amount of coriander. Very refreshing and drinkable. A shame its too short bottle size
