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.

Bottle. Dull cloudy appearance. Small white head. Fruity, yeasty aroma. Somewhat dry with a soft wheat flavor. Not tart enough and flavor lacked in comparison to other witbier.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2006
250ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Cloudy yellow in appearance, with a thin white head. Aroma is a touch buttery, waves of alcohol and some malt syrup. Smooth and thick in the mouth with a pronounced sweet body, slightly oily/buttery, tropical fruit and some spice. But all those nice flavours are rather subdued and overall this just feels dead average.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2008 First sampled from draught at the Royal Harbour Brewery in Ramsgate but purchased from Utobeer many times since. This beer is a staple in my diet. Clean, creamy, crisp and refreshing. Citrus aroma and hints throughout. Opaque yellow with a thick white froth of head. More of a soft drink than a beer really, could drink it all day long.
Re-Rate - Well, several rates on and nothing much has changed besides the number arrangement...Still hella refreshing and a staple in my diet. Pale and hazy gold with a foamy white head. Nose of wheat, bubblegum and citrus fruit. Taste is similar with coriander notes. At a recent tasting Phil L asked us all what our everyday drinking beers were, besides Alchemists Ale or Brewers Gold, this is up there...I love this stuff...
