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.

yespr (31080) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2007
25 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Sweet wheaty, citric and coriander spiced aroma. Citric sweet flavour, somewhat mellow wheaty in mouthfeel and flavour. It has that distinct coriander note which becomes slight too dominant to make the beer become really great. Ends slight lemonish and dry.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2003
An unclear light yellow beer with a fine head. The aroma fruity and dominated by lemon. The flavor is rather sour and like lemon. In the middle it is a little wheaty flat and sweet. In the end the flavor is slightly acidic wheaty. A very fresh beer. I think the Belgian version is more sour than the American version.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) Paleish yellow, with a very white, rather small head. Nice citrusy touches and a soft tartness. But nice and rounded with lots of flavours. Almost no body and no bitternes either. But quenching indeed. 181096

Draught
Hazy blond color. A plain wheat, as usual for Belgians it’s quite good, most of all maltier, and the malt is crispy.
