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 1990ís, ceased production when Mr. Celis closed his Austin microbrewery and moved to Belgium.

Draft, on premise. <font color=brown>2003 GABF Gold Medalist.</font>
Not my style, but even I can tell itís excellent. A whitish yellow body brings in a fine wheat and creamy taste. More hoppines than in others I've tried in this style, which adds to the citrusy aspect. Also plenty of coriander and grains of paradise spices. A refreshing summer beer dressed up a ďspecial occationĒ brew.

<font color=brown>Just to clarify: Pete Celisí original operation in Austin, TX was purchased by Miller, which later shut it down because it couldnít make a megabrewer type of margin. Celis sold the brand to Michigan Brewing, which is now happily turning out this 2003 GABF Gold Medalist. Texas remains their primary market, meaning less for us up north!</font>

12 oz bottle from Leukens (Tampa FL). "Brewed and bottled by Celis Brewing Co., Stratford, CT". Feel: a bit too thin; medium carbonation. Aroma: more spicy than fruity, and slightly more fruity than wheaty. Flavor: more balance across these three aspects. O: the fruity/spicy flavor was very good with pumpkin pie.

Pretty much a stock witbier, Iím almost disappointed given how much I like the St. Bernardus wit and how this is supposed to be the same recipe. Itís just your typical lightly sweet, orange dominant with some coriander, wit.

"a touch of skunk or sour that kinda fits with this very very light bodied and colored ale. fruitiness from the citrus and coriander done very well. this was a very nice, very refreshing surprise in a style i donít go out of my way to drink. will revisit in the summer."

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!!

tap @ now defunct brewpub on 16 Nov 2011. hazy gold with small head. has the spicing of a white, but not quite in the right proportions. not awful, which is about as good as you get with MBC.

I donít remember drinking this beer but my wife really liked it. And I got lucky that night so I guess Iíll be buying some more. The rating is based on the results.

MadRobin (2225) - 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
