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.

ekstedt (6683) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2008
Bottle (33 cl) from Systembolaget. Wonderful cloudy glowing pale milky yellow colour, with a large and rich creamy head. Spicy, fruity, and sourish with clear lemon notes. Light to medium bodied, good carbonation. Quite dry, and a little too much acidic for this kind of beer i.m.o.

tlind2 (1696) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 19, 2008
Draught @ Kolme Kaisaa. Cloudy yellow color, creamy white head. Aroma of cloves and lemon. The taste has a lot a fruit, mainly citrus, especially lemon zest. Fairly light body, medium-heavy carbonation. Quite appealing.

Gusgus (237) - Mlndal, SWEDEN - APR 28, 2008
Draught @ Duvel Cafe, Stockholm 080425. I really like this beer, although the current incarnation at Van Steenberge is normally brighter than it should be. Not so on draught though. It is perfectly opaque with a green-gray tint and creamy head. The aroma is very rich and creamy with american hops, but not grape, more of apricot pure peach, bananas and spicy, earthy hops. Probably Fuggles or something similar. Very soft and creamy wheat taste with a sour finish. The sourness increases in the aftertaste. Perfect color for a witbier and almost perfect palate too.

Bottle 0.25 l. Bouhgt Humletorvet, Slagelse. Colour very pale yellow with large white head. Aroma dominated by corianders - no doubts they are there. Taste a bit sweet, fruity - citrus and corianders. Mouthfeel soft.

FatPhil (15802) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 28, 2008
Keg (Gallows Bird, Espoo)
Pale slightly hazy yellow, tiny head. Strongly perfumed, but a decent wheat-grain component. Very sharp and tingly and fizzy on the tongue. More perfume and tons of coriander - artificially much, so a little 1-dimensional. Also some light cereal wheat body too, but dominated by the damn coriander.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2008
Pale gold with a slight haze. Large white head. Sweet caramel malt aroma. Sweet malt taste, rich and creamy. Metallic fizz rather spoils the effect.
