Celis White has been revived by Michigan Brewing Company with the blessing of its founder and his daughter, Christine Celis. The original Celis White, brewed in Austin, TX by Pierre Celis during the early and mid 1990’s, ceased production when Mr. Celis closed his Austin microbrewery and moved to Belgium.

In 2002, Michigan Brewing Company acquired Celis, and Celis beers were back in production. Michigan Brewing continued the production of Celis beers until its closure in 2012. In June 2012, the Celis trademark made its way back to the Celis family. In 2014, Christine Celis began having Pierre Celis’ original recipes brewed at Two Roads Brewery in Connecticut.

That great aroma of coriander and celery is exactly what I remember from the old Celis White. Crystal clear and very pale yellow (so much so it looks like cider) with a white foamy head. Lightly sweet with a sour tinge and that great vegetal flavor that makes this beer so unique. The lightest of floral hop bitterness shows through, but the taste is very unified although not one-dimensional. Residual honey sweetness and lasting yeasty flavor makes another sip inevitable. A classic beer that I wish was easier to find. Looks like Pierre’s daughter is going to revive it in Austin, TX this year, so let’s hope that dream comes true!!

I don’t remember drinking this beer but my wife really liked it. And I got lucky that night so I guess I’ll be buying some more. The rating is based on the results.

MadRobin (2540) - Silver Spring, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Lightly hazy, pastel gold with a near-white head that nearly filled the glass on first pour and decent lacing. Aroma of lemon (both sweet and tart), lemon zest, yeast, coriander, mild banana and light malt. Taste of lemon, yeast, bread, light malt coriander and banana, with the lemon and light malt dominating. Medium/light body and low/medium carbonization. A refreshing lemony quaff, but then so is lemonade. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tessic (1009) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2012
This witbier poured a cloudy light yellow colour with a big, beautiful, bright white head. To the nose there are scents of spice, cooked veggies, dough and a little vinegar. First sip was very carbonated and somewhat watery with flavours of cinnemon, spice, vanilla and hay. Finish is spicey with flavours of cinnemon lingering on the palate.
