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.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2003 Ooooh! Wow! Such a beautiful white! Try without the lemon - this is delicious. If you have the chance to drink off-tap, DO IT! You WILL NOT be disappointed! Well-balanced wheat flavorings and smells absolutely wonderful. One of my all-time favorites. Highly drinkable any time, any place, anywhere.

This is a witbier that is being brewed in accordance to Pierre Celis’ recipe. Very similiar to Hoegaarden. It is a very good Belgian Witbier. I might add that at the present time it is only available on tap at the brewery. Update: 9/9/02 - It is now being bottled and distributed in limited areas.

I’m rating based on the Canadian version that was brewed by Brick, and I’m obviously rating on memory as they stopped brewing it around the same time that the Texas brewery was closed down. God-DAMN, do I miss this beer! I was the first witbier I tasted, and still remains my favourite. Here’s hoping that Michigan decides to bottle their version and send it up to Ontario sometime...

Pretty much like Hoegaarden. Very fruity and cloudy. A nice alternative to Hoegaarden, much more power.

As i like white beer, i certainly like Celis White. Compared with the Hoegaarden series, this beer has a fuller taste. Also see my rating of Celis White (belgian).

Yellow hazy brew. Fruity aroma with citrus tones. Malty flavor with citrus and spices.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2002
Lemon yellow cloudy with decent pure white lasting head and lite lacing. Sourdough and light cured meat yeasts, lemon sour n’ fruity hops and faint malt aromas. Light body, doughy malty start, fainter sour middle and a rather weak finish. Sorry Belgian whites are just too wussy for me.

This beer will knock your socks off with its strong flavors: cloves and lemon, particularly. Great as a change of pace. Love that cloudy look!

At one time this was my favorite beer. I wish it was still around. I hope someday Celis comes back...sniff..sniff...
