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.

Bottled in Take One Maastricht. Murky light yellow color, thin bubbly white head. Aroma has lots of wheat (ok for a wheat beer) and sweetY malt. Flavour is bit citric sour, with wheats again very light aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2011 Bottle. Poured with a lot of floaties, in a hazy, yellow-orange body, and with a diminishing, dense, white head on top. The aroma lead my thoughts to a tea and coffee shop, but there were oranges and spices as well. Quite distinct. A bit weak flavor, with oranges, lemons, spices, some tea, and a bitterness towards the end. Both hoppy bitterness and orange-peel bitterness, and some notes of black tea. Medium, a bit dry and dusty mouthfeel. The beer has a lovely aroma, but the flavor doesn’t reach the same level. Nice beer thouch, it could easily be drank by numbers. Rating: 7-3-6-3-13-3.2. 070926

Bottle, 25cl, as Gensch Mannekes Pies. It’s slightly cloudy in the glass, golden in color and with a small, white head on top. It’s rather orangey on the nose, lightly spiced and sugary, and with some peachy, limey notes. The flavor has a nice bitterness towards the end, with peaches, oranges, lime zest hints and coriander. Not much malty. Nice carbonation, or maybe a tad high, and quite dry. Bitter, orangey finish with some spicyness. A quite refreshing and easy drinkable beer that I could easily down a few of. 110716

25 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Sweet wheaty, citric and coriander spiced aroma. Citric sweet flavour, somewhat mellow wheaty in mouthfeel and flavour. It has that distinct coriander note which becomes slight too dominant to make the beer become really great. Ends slight lemonish and dry.

Bottle. BB4 June 2007.Where’s the head. Almost a gray yellow. Sour strong banana scent. Sour, muddied banana split flavour. Need to get fresher sample.

SHIG (4956) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Bottle: Poured a hazy white yellow with a thin fluffy white head. The aroma is a spicy citrus. Taste is a rich spicy malt with a citrus tang. Very pleasing to the taste buds.
Earlier Rating: 12/12/2006 Total Score: 3.1
Bottle: Poured hazy yellowish white with froathy white head. Citrus wheat aroma could be smelt as it was poured. Sour dry wheat and finished with that citrus zip.

bgiamatei (317) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - SEP 19, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2008 Foi a primeira vez que tomei essa qualidade de cerveja - não tenho parâmetros. Coloração laranja bem pálido, fosca. Quase sem espuma. Cheiro levemente adocicado de pão - o que remete ao cereal utilizado. Doce, mas não tão forte, sabor frutado. Ligeiramente seca no retrogosto. Fermento suspenso. Lembrou vagamente uma cerveja de trigo - talves porque seja feita de trigo - rerere. Uma outra cerveja do mesmo estilo (Hoegaarden) é bem superior. Há uma outra cerveja Celis White feita por uma cervejaria americana (Miller) que está no Top 500 do MJ.

Bottled and on tap (no big difference). Cloudy orange body with a huge white head. Aroma has a lot of esters, fruity and lemon. Flavor is fruity, sweet, yeast with a bit lemon sourness in the aftertaste. Nice and refreshing, but a bit one-dimensional.

As far as wits go, this is a good one. Summer refresher that doesn’t quite make Hoegaarden heights, but has a lot to offer...yeasty banana and corriander.

[Sampled in 2004.] The Godfather of Witbiers with his own beer. A bit like the Hoegaarden with the notes of banana, yeast, coriander, freshness and a great thirstquencher.

daniele (9018) - ITALY - AUG 10, 2007
chiara torbida rinfrescante non molto speziata un po agrumata un po deludente rimanendo buona
