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.

Had at Chumleys in Broadripple, IN on a perfect day for this style of beer. Pillowy white head that hangs on the glass. The spice sediment hangs around in this thick brew. Corriander and orange are the dominant flavors and are supported by banana, pear, apple and cream. Delicious and recommended.

Megabrewing 101. Tracking this beer down was a bit confusing. The label gives its point of origin as Stratford, Connecticut, but it has obviously been brewed at different times in Belgium, Minnesota and perhaps elsewhere. Likely, this is a Miller/Coors product. Brewed by Two Roads, another sell-out to the monopolists. Well, it is not bad... lacks the banana taste I hate in wheat beers. Seems well made. My memories are of drinking such a beer on a sunny afternoon in a plaza in some Southern German city. Otherwise, I have no interest whatever in this style.

Bottle, thanks SirLimpsalot. Hazy yellow with a large white head. Aroma and taste of perfume, citrus, light yeast, phenols and some notes of wheat. The body was light as was the bitterness. Nothing special.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2015 Bottle. Hazy hay yellow liquid with huge white head. Aroma of lemon peel, grain, perfume, lemon, perfume, lemon, perfume and lemons. Taste is light sweet and very light bitter with notes of lemon and grain. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Quite perfumey... Insanely phenolic and estery. Ugh.
