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.

Botlle@ De Tolly Joogipood. Pours really hazy /cloudy yellow with nice firm white head.Aroma is full of cardamom, some juicy-lemonade aroma, citrus, sweet, fruity. Taste is watery, malty, cardamom.Thin to medium body. To weird for me and to watery.

Bottle. Will compare this to Hoegaarden (H). Slightly murky honey color (H murkier and paler). Balanced fruity aroma that is dominated by red grape juice. Infused with rose-hip, hint of nettle. Grains on the background. Definitely fruitier and less grainy than H. Taste is very floral: buttercup, blossom, sweet yeast esters that remind of La Chouffe. Development resembles rosewater. Aftertaste hint of grains. Little watery. This is definitely more of a degustation beer compared to H.

On tap at 101 Beer Kitchen Gahanna on 4/10/15. Hazy gold in color with a thin white head. Aroma of malt, orange, banana, light funk and bubblegum. Malty flavor with slight banana and citrus before a dry, estery finish.

Visual bastante turvo, meio leitoso. Paladar inicial levemente ácido, desenvolvendo para algo mais leve e muito bem equilibrado
