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.

This is actually the original Hoegaarden, brewed by master brewer Pierre Celis to capture the taste of his archetypical witbier. It’s deliciously wheaty with coriander, orange and some other spices/fruits. Very nice.

TET (1542) - FINLAND - AUG 5, 2013
A cloudy, light yellow beer with a medium and white head. The nose of wheat, spices, coriander and some lemon. Taste is surprisingly sweet, wheat, spices and some citrusfruits. More spices and less sweetness in the end, that’s a positive. Medium bodied, high carbonation, easy to drink. Too much of sweetness, but anyway, quite nice witbier.

Flaske delt med Kitty på Cafe Blaagaards Apotek: til å være en wit er dette tynne saker. Lite aroma, lite smak og det lille som er, er ute av balanse - en vammel søtlighet.

R2k2 (338) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2013
Cloudy, somewhat orange colored beer. Full malty, and also somewhat sour aroma with the presence of citrusfruits. It has a bitter taste in the beginning, but the citrus follows up quite quickly. It has a slightly bitter aftertaste. Licht troebel, enigszins oranjekleurig witbier. Vol moutig, zurig aroma met de aanwezigheid van citrusvruchten. De bitterheid komt als eerst naar voren in de smaak, maar dit wordt snel opgevolgd met citrustoetsen. Enige licht bittere nasmaak.

20107589 (304) - randers, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2013
low aroma, and a appearance with little foam, the taste is only few notes of wheat, and the palate is thin, this beer, is a thin beer, like many mass produced lagers.

AtronSeige (513) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - APR 19, 2013
Spicy aroma with carriander, grain and cirtus notes. A bit of sourness in the background. Cloudy dark straw yellow with a small bubbles. Very little head that quickly goes away, leaving a bit of lace. Cirtus/lemony taste, slightly sweet and very crisp with a small bit of sourness.. Very fizzy on the tongue. Medium light bodied. Finishes dry and tarty. This is a refreshing beer that I would probably consume in large quantities. 250ml bottle, poured.
