COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Cracker Cowboys of Florida were colonial-era settlers, often of Scots-Irish descent, who arrived in Florida when Spain traded their territory of La Florida to the English. The term Cracker in Florida usage relates to the whip these "cow hunters" used to herd cattle in Florida’s Palmetto Prairies. Called Quáqueros by the Spanish, these hardy and hard working Cracker Cowboys helped to shape the history of Florida, the nation’s oldest cattle raising state. We brew Florida Cracker White ale with unmalted wheat, orange peel and coriander and then ferment it with a French Saison yeast strain to give it a spicy and dry finish. Perfect for a warm day on the Palmetto Prairie.

I had this at Mad Pub. Pours cloudy yellow with a white head. Taste coriander, orange, wheat. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear straw color if you poor carefully. Aroma of orange peel and bret yeast. Disappearing head. Taste of bret yeast, orange, coreander and sweet fruit. Aftertaste is sweet and dry. Follow the instruction on the can!

sebletitje (7801) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 8, 2015
Can. Couleur trouble orangée, col blanc crémeux persistant. Arôme au bouquet très belge dans l’approche de levure, retrouve un nez légèrement épicé e coriandre avec l’ajout typique de pelure d’orange. Palais est léger froment-malté, note prononcée d’épice-coriandre et une levure belge ajoutant une belle profondeur en ligne pour le style. Le tout reste épais avec un accent mis sur la touche fruitée d’orange. Houblons restent assez nobles entre fleuri et citronné. Sans révolutionner le style, cette bière dégustée dans les conditions estivales propre à la FL est une merveille de fraicheur. Parfaire pour la chaleur de Floride.

TH28 (251) - - JUL 3, 2015
12oz can. Canned 5/6/15. Appearance: Light golden, hazy, moderate white foam cap. Aroma: Bready malt, orange zest, with some light apple and pear esters. Taste: Light bready malt with a punch of orange zest and citrus, finishing with a bit of coriander spice. Apple and pear yeast flavor emerges in the back end. Mouthfeel: Moderate body, hint of creaminess, strong carbonation. Finish: Orange peel and coriander spice linger on the tongue, with strong retronasal apple and pear yeast esters. Overall: Top notch witbier. Appearance and aroma are par for the course, but flavor has a burst of citrus and orange peel, with nice fruity yeast esters on the back side

Nice and spicy. Belgian yeast is prominent in the taste along with spice and orange peel. Pretty refreshing, easy drinker.

Blairgus (3324) - California, USA - JUN 19, 2015
30 May 2015, tap at Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Festival. Milky white yellow and a bit hazy. Nose is sweet wit yeast and cereal malt. Thin creamy body and mildly fizzy. Lemon and pineapple citrus and yeasty. Ok.

Cybercat (4028) - Georgia, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Pours clear solar yellow with a very thick and rather persistent frothy ivory head. Aroma has strong yeasty and wheaty strokes with a hint of citrus. Flavor starts with a wheaty core and adds subtle yeast, citrus and coriander tones. Body is a bit thin, and fizz lacking; however, I let the growler sit, perhaps too long. This will definitely take the edge off a sweltering Southern day.

EyeAmBaldman (378) - Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Poured a hazy lemonade color with a thick white head. Aroma is bubble gum, typical Balgian. Taste is the same except the backend disappears quickly. Not much to this beer.

Can poured a golden in color with a thin coating of white head. Aroma has Belgian yeast, flowery, and some wet herbs. Mouth feel is medium light with mid range carbonation. Flavor is centered around the yeast, flowery, mild malt, and a herby snap into the finish. Super easy drinking.
