What the brewers say

“Brewed with the highest quality ingredients, Celis White is a light and hazy yellow wheat beer, ideal for sipping during the hot summer months. An easy-drinking session beer laced with flavors of orange peel, spice, and coriander.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Strong floral character, with orange, tangerine, and vanilla. The orange-peel and perfumy character is somewhat muted. A bit of honey, bread, and wheaty graininess, along with lemon, esters of cherry, pear, and apple, and spicy phenols. All the aromas one would expect in a well-crafted wit, in almost perfect balance.”

Flavor: “The sip has the same floral presence, with brightness from the citrus esters, and cherry, pear, ripe apple, and strawberry enter, along with some coriander, black pepper, and ginger. The citrus is more lemon than orange. Tart wheat supports, with the graininess helping the beer to finish very dry.”

Overall: “All the parts of this beer come together well. The floral character dominates but is supported by the esters and the malt. Like a classic rock band on tour, it plays all the fan favorites, but it doesn’t throw out anything new.”
