2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught as Celis White
Pale lemon yellow, small creamy white head. Yeasty, wheat aroma. Also in the flavor sweetish yeast dominates. Medium-bodied. Crisp, uninteresting "bulk" witbier.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2005 A beer with almost no body. A citrus-like flavour, but there are better Belgian white beers available. This is indeed a very quenching beer. (Bottle 25cl)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
What a mess. RateBeer says ’Ertvelds Wit’. The label says ’Gensch Mannekes Pies’. And if you peel it off, there’s another label underneath which says ’Celis White’. Ahm... 25 cl bottle, bottled/bbe? Very pale, straw coloured, little sparkle, weak head leaving fine lace. Spiced aroma, citrus peel, but also some a bit weird spiciness which is also present in de Witte Lambiek of Timmermans; there’s malt in the nose, too. Lemony and sourish flavour with a gentle hop finish. Thin palate.

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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(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.
