COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unfiltered in bottle and keg.
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 cloudy pale yellow with a short-lived head and a sweet-sweaty aroma. Sweet lemonade flavour, very similar to Hoegaarden but not as creamy or rich. Decent carb, nice slightly hoppy aftertaste. Very drinkable wit!

Sur kedelig tynd l. Minder om en tynd weisbeer, men er noget mere syrlig. Lys gul og let ufiltreret.

The head died rather quickly on this cloudy, pale straw beer. Its got a pleasant soft aroma, banana and tart citrus fruits with a touch of spices. The flavor disappoints somewhat - yeasty with sour lemon and wheat malt. Okay for a warm weather drink.

0,33 bottle. Hazy white-yellow with medium head, really beautiful. Aroma is fruity, mainly banana - really adorable. Flavour is strongly citric, bit wheaty and bit sour. Palate smooth, very nice mouthfeel. Much enjoyable.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2007
The head is small on this very pale and hazy wit. Both aroma and flavour are thin, they only have weak notes of fruit and citrus. I would have liked more body, but thirst quenching it is...

MiP (15454) - Snderborg, DENMARK - APR 26, 2007
Bottle, 5% as Gensch Mannekes Pies. Aroma of citrus, clove, chalk. Hazy yellow colour, small white head. The flavour is dominated by citrus, mostly lemon, along with some clove. High carbonation and good mouthfeel. Very refreshing.

JK (6046) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2007
Wheat and spice aroma. Sweet, wheaty flavor. It isnt complex, but it is spot on for the style, if a little sweet. Cloudy yellow and tall white head.
