2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

En belgisk white. Lavet af ham der bryggede Hoegaarden. Er knapt så belgisk .

It pours pale gold with slight lacing and a white head. It has aromas of fruit, lemon, wheat, and hints of pear. It have fruit flavors lead by lemon, orange, hints of pear, wheat, hints of coriander and spice. It is light bodied with high carbonation. Overall this is a fairly easy drinking fruity beer with spice and wheat compliments.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light sweet wheat aroma with some spices. Looks great but could have more head. Slightly watery, but the essentials are there. Citrus, light spiciness, vanilla, wheat malts. Tastes nice just a bit too mild for me. I really like a flavorful wit beer and this one is just too weak (in flavor). Similar to Hoegaarden, just less pronounced. Nevertheless a nice one.

0.355l bottle. Hazy golden body, thin white head. Aroma of biscuit, honey, orange zest, peach and spices. Taste of bread, honey, coriander and some hops. Less fruity and more bready than the Hoegaarden, but still fine.

Bottled January 22nd 2016.
Pours a light gold, slightly hazy with plenty of foam. Long lasting foam and good lacing.
Cloves coriander yeast in the smell.
Taste of the spices I mentioned. Hints of orange zest coming through and everything works well together. Fresher bottles would have been nice.
Creamy smooth mouthfeel.
Second pour and things get appropriately cloudy.
A very impressive beer.

Aromas of orange and spice. Flavor has too much orange, I didn’t care for this beer at all. White beers aren’t high on my list.

Had this back in the day in Hopdevil pub, one of the first beer pubs in Zagreb, now closed. When Alen from Svijet piva (World of Beer) got it on tap, he invited me for a drink and was praising this beer as one of the best. Murky, almost opaque yellow, medium white head, medium lasting. Citrus, lemon wafer. Bitterish, spicy, sourish, lively, sweet. Drinkable. Very good actually.

Rated from old notes. Taste is yeast and wheat, with a strong clove note and citric undertone. Similar to a Hoegaarden, but with more body and more taste. Very good stuff. Nice to see it is being made again.
