Pierre Celis created the original Hoegaarden beer in the early 1960s. Interbrew-Labatt bought the brand and the brewery in the 1980's. Pierre Celis formed a new brewery in Austin Texas, brewing the same beer but under the brand name Celis White. Miller bought the Celis brewery and the Celis White brand-name in 1996. The brewery closed in 2000. In late 2002 Michigan Brewing bought the Celis White brand from Miller. Brouwerij Van Steenberge is now brewing the original Pierre Celis White under the brand-name Celis White in Europe and Ertveld's Wit in North America.

Pours a hazy lemon in the glass with a rim of cream head round the edge of the glass. Nose is a little citrus, maybe grapefruit mostly. Creamy in the mouth with quite a bit of fizz. Not loads of taste and a little sodary but quite refreshing.

GoufCustom (1921) - HONG KONG - APR 12, 2016

250ml bottle bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long.

Cloudy hazy pale straw golden colour with traces of yeast sediments; Half finger head with crumpety white foam which last for 1 minutes; Very good sticky lacing and zero carbonation; Fragrant aroma of malt, with very strong wheat and tartness, orange peel, coriander, light banana, floral, light sugar, spices, lemon and grass; Mid to light sweet taste of light malt, with strong wheat, thin tartness, light coriander, light oranges, fair molasses, strong earth, light spices, thin lemon, thin bitter hops and faint grass; Close to light body. Slick and creamy palate; Mouth feel is light maltyness in a thick and smooth background. Lots of wheat but tartness is light. Light but fair amount of coriander and oranges, mixed with nice molasses, pretty strong earth and fairly tasty spices. Very light lemon to round. Pretty good!... Hoppiness is spices, lemon and grass in nose. Strong earth, spices, light lemon in taste; Bitterness is very low for an abrupt, nil astringent wheaty spicy finish; Fairly dry after taste. Smooth and very easy to mouth.

Comments: This is almost like the bottled Hoegaarden, but with better fruity estery aroma, and a bit more spicy character in taste. Very quaffable, although a bit more expressive in spice and herbs will be better!

Bottle. Hazy golden body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of pollen, banana and corn flakes. Flavour of tangy lemon, bergamot, flower petals and Earl Grey tea. Medium body with a creamy texture. Soft fizz. A tangy, floral Witbier.
