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.

0,25L bottle, BB 25.03.2015. Pours slightly hazy straw with white head. The head stays. Aroma is banana, tropic fruits, yeast, and wheat. Taste is sweet, sour, wheat, fruity, yeast and watery. Overall: too watery and light, but drinkable.

artyom (423) - Osijek, CROATIA - JAN 29, 2014
0,25l bottle. Hazy yellow color with small white head and some lacing. It’s very aromatic with wheat, yeast, citrus and coriander. Taste is a bit sour and rather sweet with wheat and distinctive notes of coriander, lemon and orange. Moderate carbonation and low to medium body. It’s very aromatic and refreshing beer.

aleksander9 (369) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2014
Pale and hazy orange with very small white head. Aroma is excellent, like a well made perfume. Fruity wit yeast, orange, lemon and spice blends well together. Sweet and some sour mouth feel with medium carbonation. Short, dry, fruity and sweet aftertaste. Overall: One of the best wits i have had. Excellent aroma with a nice refreshing aftertaste that fits well with warm weather. The head isnt impressive.

zenkis (547) - Ogre, LATVIA - DEC 14, 2013
Flavor of honey and spices, not so much about malt, color is pale yellow with tiny orange tone. Medium sweet, quite thick for Witbier, sour-sweet aftertaste. To me is not very interesting. Light lasing too.
