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.

Pale gold with a slight haze. Large white head. Sweet caramel malt aroma. Sweet malt taste, rich and creamy. Metallic fizz rather spoils the effect.

heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 9, 2007
8/12 0.25 l draught at Hopdevil, shared with Petra, thanks for ordering it. Murky pale yellow body with medium bigger white head. Light aroma of banana, mixed with some orange or similar. Flavor is bitterish and sweetish, nice wheat felt, but quite watery. Pleasant sweetish fruity finish, but unfortunately quite short. Nothing special, not bad surely but if only had more body...

AmEricanbrew (6731) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 28, 2007
12 oz.bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a minimal head that faded quickly. Smell is of spices, black pepper, and lemons. Has a refreshingly tart, bitter sweet lemony wheat malt taste. A good brew to buddy up with after mowing the lawn on a hot afternoon.June 2004

KnutAlbert (6712) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2007
Bottle from Bier Temple. Light banana aroma, some Christmaslike spices - cinnamon and nutmeg? Rather banal wit, boring. At least it is not too clpyingly banana sweet.

ha1ag (863) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2007
