Pierre Celis created the original Hoegaarden beer in the early 1960’s. 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.

Was called Ervelds Wit at The Dray in Seattle. Appealing cloudy straw color with fantastic Belgian lacing. One of the better looking Witts. Profusion of wheat and coriander smells, quite piquant. Quenching and flavored with wheat and coriander with some banana notes rounding out the medley nicely. A bit flat in flavor, but a better than average Witt just the same.

Bottle. As ‘Gensch Manneken Pies’. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head. Sweet, dusty, fruity aroma with a creamy tartness. Flavour is lots of coriander with citrus hops hidden behind it at first. As it warms, the coriander becomes less dominant, which is good, because it was a bit too much at first imo, and notes of wheat comes out. The finish reveals the citrus hops more as well as a mild bitterness with a liquorice feel to it. An okay and quite refreshing beer, although nothing special. 04-08-08.

BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 20, 2008
25cl, from De Hopduvel Gent, very easy to drink Belgian White, not complex, cloudy, good head, nothing special

shrubber85 (11583) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 12, 2008
Bottle. Sour milk, lemon and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy orange-yellow color with minimal head. Sour milk, lemon and wheat malt flavor. Thought this might have been old but had a best before date of 28Jan09. Compared to Hoegaarden, Texas Celis and Michigan Celis, this one was the weakest, but still not bad.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - JUL 8, 2008
Clear yellow pour with a frothy head. Aroma of spices and citrus. Heavy wheat taste with a citrus note. Not a bad beer.

It looks like a white beer, and smells like that, but taste is far away to get it. Is a wheat beer I can said but I’m not happy with this as a white one. Appearance is good, the image of a white with frothy head make them a good mimick.

Wim (4133) - Weelde, BELGIUM - JUN 20, 2008
cloudy yellow coloured body with a white head a citrus spicy aroma a spicy citrus fruity taste with a fruity little bitter finish

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2008
On-tap. Cloudy yellow color with a white head. A bit acidic/sourish taste with notes of citrus, lightly spiciness, paper, white wine and grain.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Bottle, courtesy Tony at Oldsmar Tap House. Pours a hazy straw yellow color, with lots of cloudy white head and tons of lacing. Coriander, peach, apricot, clean zest, chalk..all in the nose. Flavor has much of the same, and better. Coriander, zest, lemony notes, peach, some chalk, lots of hay and wheat. Spicy on the tongue, easy to drink, a good representation of the style.

Christian (13805) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2008
Pale hazy yellow with a creamy and lasting white head. Coriander and clove in the aroma, with some grain and bread notes. Dry with coriander flavour and a hint of citrus. Hardly surprising, this is a wonderful wit. I wasn’t so satisfied last I had a Hoegaarden.
