UPDATED: MAR 25, 2003 Celis lives again. A decent Belgian-style white. Pale, yellow, cloudy, citrusy with a malty aftertaste. Somewhat unrefined, tastes simply sweet when other subtleties would really add to the beer's character. Perhaps tinkering with the hops a bit would do the trick. I really didn't taste any of the "spiciness" that other raters refer to. Still a good beer overall though.

Bottle. It's a very nice white beer. It's a bit different, and that's good. Would recommend ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 Pierreís daughter is going to revive it in Austin, TX this year, so letís hope that dream comes true!!

MadRobin (1932) - 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
