COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unfiltered in bottle and keg.
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.

Buona ma non eccezionale, bevuta alla spina a Siena insieme alla mia ragazza in un pub carino in uno di quei vicoletti che portano al Campo.

Bouteille 250ml, courtoisie de Jean-Marc G. De couleur jaune dorée et voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (citron et léger de zest, moyen de bananes), épicé (clou de girofle et coriandre) et léger de blé. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyenne-élevé et croustillante ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse et quelques notes aqueuses. Goût de levures fruitées aux notes sûres (citron et léger de zest, moyen de bananes, traces de pommes et autres agrumes) avec un goût épicé (coriandre et léger de clou de girofle)et des notes de vanille lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de blé légèrement asséchant et une finale aux notes amères de levures. Post-goût moyen et un peu sec, aux notes amères de levures et avec une légère aigreur fruitée (zest de citron, notes de pelures de bananes) et un goût de blé.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2007
Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a short-lived head and a sweet-sweaty aroma. Sweet lemonade flavour, very similar to Hoegaarden but not as creamy or rich. Decent carb, nice slightly hoppy aftertaste. Very drinkable wit!

tenghave (404) - Taastrup, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2007
Sur kedelig tynd øl. Minder om en tynd weisbeer, men er noget mere syrlig. Lys gul og let ufiltreret.

The head died rather quickly on this cloudy, pale straw beer. It’s got a pleasant soft aroma, banana and tart citrus fruits with a touch of spices. The flavor disappoints somewhat - yeasty with sour lemon and wheat malt. Okay for a warm weather drink.

0,33 bottle. Hazy white-yellow with medium head, really beautiful. Aroma is fruity, mainly banana - really adorable. Flavour is strongly citric, bit wheaty and bit sour. Palate smooth, very nice mouthfeel. Much enjoyable.

250 ml bottle. Hazy golden, minor head. Fruit-candy and strong banana aroma. Notes og herbs. Taste is light citric, light wheaty, light sourish. Thin body and sourish mouthfeel. Fair.
