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.

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.

VsXsV (2777) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2015
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.

ninecats (320) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2015
75cl. Hazy yellow, big white slowly dissipating head, lots of lacings. Floral discreet smell, flowers, minor coriander, sweet malt. Juicy, sweet, citrusy floral, semi spicy taste. Light to medium body, medium carbo, soft mouthfeel. Fine drinkability, and good balance.

Flaska från Belgoklubben. Grumligt gulaktig med vitt skum. Fruktig doft med en del kryddighet. Avslagen och fadd med läskig eftersmak. Touch av akvarievatten.

@ Basunen 15-6-14: riktig trevlig doft av vete och cest (skal av apelsin eller lime). Smaken är kanske lite tunn men det är mycket frisk och lättdrucket. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

jamaty (1155) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
Dorada turbia. Muy poca espuma para una trigo. Aroma plano, ligeramente floral. En boca muy suave al paladar y con cierto tono dulce, y bastante cítrica. Muy muy bebible y agradable. Gran witte.
