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.

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.

chiara torbida rinfrescante non molto speziata un po agrumata un po deludente rimanendo buona

looks intruiging does’nt it? has a nice smell of banana,peppery herbs (w/corriander) and citrus candy. tastes are similiar. yeasty light and grainy body i am not fond of. it would have it’s own place when a brew like this is desired. eeehhh, a touch too chalky, and sour.

Buona ma non eccezionale, bevuta alla spina a Siena insieme alla mia ragazza in un pub carino in uno di quei vicoletti che portano al Campo.

Draft. Golden body, white head, typical banana/citrus nose. Light body, medium sweetness, typical of the style.

ford9719 (371) - Vilseck, GERMANY - JUN 24, 2007
Bottle. Ploured a very golden yellow. Aroma is wheat with a wierd smell. Taste is smooth but not that great.

Viper666 (3286) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2007
Bouteille 250ml, courtoisie de Jean-Marc G. De couleur jaune dorée et voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (citron et léger de zest, moyen de bananes), épicé (clou de girofle et coriandre) et léger de blé. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyenne-élevé et croustillante ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse et quelques notes aqueuses. Goût de levures fruitées aux notes sûres (citron et léger de zest, moyen de bananes, traces de pommes et autres agrumes) avec un goût épicé (coriandre et léger de clou de girofle)et des notes de vanille lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de blé légèrement asséchant et une finale aux notes amères de levures. Post-goût moyen et un peu sec, aux notes amères de levures et avec une légère aigreur fruitée (zest de citron, notes de pelures de bananes) et un goût de blé.

On tap, in Roma, at Trastevere. Blanche refreshing, drinkable. Lemon taste.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2007
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!
