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.

Too bad Celis left Texas... Pours a rich, cloudy gold. Hints of orange and lemon in the nose, and the taste is an extension, with a smidgen of malt thrown in. Mouthfeel is lush, and seems to coat the mouth. A very enjoyable beer.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) Paleish yellow, with a very white, rather small head. Nice citrusy touches and a soft tartness. But nice and rounded with lots of flavours. Almost no body and no bitternes either. But quenching indeed. 181096

All in all this beer is simply too sweet for me. Aroma and appearance is ok, but the flavor...

Bottled as Celis White. Hazy yellow colour, small white head. Aroma of wheat and sweet malt. A bit sour, wheaty and malty flavour. Not much aftertaste. Oily palate.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2005
(Draught@Vltava, Helsinki, labeled Celis White) Opaque yellow-straw color with a small, lacy head. Very lemony, quite spicy, somewhat sweet aroma. Nicely peppery-spicy, fruity-lemony acidic flavor. Light-bodied, very refreshing but slightly thin, quite carbonated and crisp palate. A decent, refreshing witbier.

it is ia nice rough beer to drink. It tempts although it resists. Pretty taste afterwarts, sometimes bitter while drinking. A bit sweet.

maeib (8611) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2005
Bottled. A hazy light green/gold coloured beer with minimal head. The aroma is quite sour wheaty, lemony and medicinal. The taste is also on the sour side with rather thin lemony notes. An average wit needing that creamy full texture that others enjoy.

Bottled Clear pale golden, rich head. Fresh, orangey nose. Light bodied and medium sweet. Fairly simple, but very refreshing. A very good wit!
