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.

Cloudly off yellow hue with a decent creamy white head. Fresh, crisp citrussy and wheaty nose. This follow through to the flavour which is wheaty and orangey with a crisp off dry finish.

Swaroga (2023) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 16, 2016
Nice snowy head. Aroma is quite intriging floral perfume. Some notes of Coriander seeds, orange peel, yeasty dough and caramel. Soft water mouth feel. The taste is horrid, watered down yeasty dough with perfume and some little grainy sweetness. Finish is oxidation.

Just like Horgaden when I tasted the first. Lots of fruit aroma makes me feel this is tempting me to drink.

KoNrRiI (1150) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2016

0.25 bottle.
Cloudy, pale yellow color and a large, thick, white head. Aroma is insanely citric and spicy; bubblegum, bananas, and coriander. Sweet taste of apples, bananas, once again bubblegum, spices, citruses, and other light fruits. A medium body, an oily texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is medium long and has this typical, witbier, sweet and sour character. Overall the beer is fine - nothing special about it but it’s a refreshing and drinkable brew.

Nice white head with rich aroma. Taste in general light but a lot of fruit flavour. Best for spicy hot pot.

kidmartinek (4572) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2016
Wow! Lots of wood and fruit in the aroma. Pours hazy yellow with a big pure white head. I think I hated this as a kid, but then grew up. Anyway, drinking a Belgian made Celis white in Xinghe China from my hometown’s namesake is like heaven.

apickles (434) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2016
Pours a hazy lemon in the glass with a rim of cream head round the edge of the glass. Nose is a little citrus, maybe grapefruit mostly. Creamy in the mouth with quite a bit of fizz. Not loads of taste and a little sodary but quite refreshing.
