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.

You fill like drinking a mixture of flowers, citrous and honey. No my kind of beer but refreshing and well done.

PapaVillum (591) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2014
25 cl, flaske, 5,0 % ABV, OBS. Ældre øl: BB 5/08/09, gave fra Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse, 24. september 2014. Lys honningfarvet belgisk Witbier, ufiltreret, med fin enkel hvid flygtig skumtop på 1-2 cm. En del gærrester i bunden af glasset, mens skummet svinder ind. God aroma: sherry, kælderaroma, citrusfrugt, tørret frugt. Smagen er meget overraskende sur, syr- og sødlig. For gammel? Giver associationer i retning af en ung Lambic. Middel syrlig, middel sur og let sødme. Medium fyldig krop, medium karboneret, som stadig holder. Oily konsistens og tør, let bittersur afslutning. Celis White udvikler sig en del i glasset efter åbning og er den amerikansk eller belgisk? Brygget på Van Steenberge efter amerikansk "opskrift", eller ? Meget speciel øl, som jeg skylder en rating mere, grundet denne flaskes alder.
