COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The mostly-extinct farmhouse breweries of Belgium were notorious for using whatever ingredients were available to them. One of treasures made by these breweries and nearly lost to history was spiced witbier (white beer). Witbier defied an untimely fate, being revived by a man named Pierre Celis who worked in one of the last breweries in Belgium to commercially produce a version of this unique, spiced beer. Celis eventually sold his own witbier brewery and moved to Austin, Texas to open another white beer brewery (Celis White) and the rest is history. ​ In honor of the late and great Pierre Celis, we are proud to offer Community Wit as a warm weather libation, produced locally for our fellow Texans once again. We brew it traditionally using unmalted wheat as our base and lightly spice the kettle with freshly ground sweet and bitter orange peel and coriander seed. The hops are minimal, keeping the focus on the wheat, spices and the unique character contributed by authentic Belgian yeast strains, one of which originated from the same strain that Pierre brought across the Atlantic to America.

I used to drink a lot of Celis White and this tribute is true to that inspiration. Hazy yellow with a bready head. Light but flavorful with citrus notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I must have got some skunked beer at the Flying Saucer in Mesquite Tx. This stuff was just plain nasty. Actually left a faint hot dog aftertaste in my mouth. There are very few beers I can’t finish a glass of. But this was one. 2 sips was 1 too many. Had to drink a Coor Lite just to get the taste outta my mouth.

Hazy golden color with a medium thick white head that recedes slowly. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of citrus, wheat and spice. Light-bodied with flavors of citrus, herbal yeast and cloves. The finish is wheaty with a spice and fruit aftertaste. Decent overall.
