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.

August 31, 2015 - can from Knightly. Cloudy yellow pour with big head that faded quickly. Aroma was orange, grain and strong coriander. Taste was consistent with the aroma and nice spicy dry finish.

Can from a trade with Weezel, thanks Mike. Pours a hazy golden colour, fluffy white head, lots o lace. Nose is sweet, fruity, distinctly Belgian style yeast. Tastes sweet, Belgian, fruity, light. This is good stuff.

While the smell is lovely, you wouldn’t necessarily think Florida Cracker would be special going by that alone. There’s fruity yeast, bread, spices, and citrus. But the flavor. Holy shit. There’s banana, wheat malt, clove, coriander, pepper, lemon/orange zest, and candy. With summer coming to an end, it’s distressing to think how far away this beer is from me.

On tap at Leon’s. Pretty decent to style with a little more pepper and spice on the finish. Requisite banana and toasty grain flavors mid palate. Hazy yellow color with big frothy white head.

GTAEgeek (1506) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Sample at Taps. Light, hazy yellow pour, with a big, off-white, pillowy head. The nose is straw, lemon juice, and cloves. Citrusy sweetness, with only a touch of bitterness. Light body, smooth, and a little acidic. This is a pretty nice, easy witbier.

HuskerTan (985) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Draft/Fest. A- Spices, wheat, oranges. A- Golden color, cloudy liquid, white head. T- Wheat, coriander, spices, cloves, bitter orange peel, citrus. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- Not as good as I wanted it to be but I used to love this style and this was a major want. Now that I had it it didn’t quite hit the spot but it was certainly a solid beer.
