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.

Strong coriander spiciness mated with tart, creamy wheat in the aroma. Opaque yellow-straw coloured body with decent and lasting white head. Tart wheat flavour offers notes of vanilla with coriander emerging in the lightly bitter finish. Light-medium body with crisp, refreshing carbonation. Bottle sampled at Den Tatoverede Enke in Copenhagen.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2005
Averaga white and diminishing head, the body is cloudy and the colour is light yellow. Hoppy aroma, herbs, koriander some orange and lemon. Rather thin, light sweet taste, little bit of an metallic palate, light dry astringent finish. I had better white’s.

Malakin (469) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 25, 2005
Hazy straw colored with a nice aroma. Flavour is light and doesn’t quite live up to the aroma but it’s still solid and has a good wheatyness to it.

Sigmund (6109) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2005
Draught at Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen, as Celis Wit. Lovely aroma of burnt caramel / treacle and spices. Flavour is not nearly that exciting, this is a fairly watery and bland wit.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2005
Smells like herbs and candy. Odd flavor. Tastes like French nougat! Not particularly pleasant but unique.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Spicy nose, cloyingly sweet and yeasty. Hazy yellow body, small white head. Yeasty flavor, quite sourish.

joergen (24774) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2005 Bottled as Gensch Mannekes Pies. Yellow coloured with a small white head. Acidic aroma of lactic acid and fruits. Acidic flavour of corn and fruits. Boring.

TBone (14897) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2005

Pale lemon yellow, small creamy white head. Yeasty, wheat aroma. Also in the flavor sweetish yeast dominates. Medium-bodied. Crisp, uninteresting "bulk" witbier.
