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.

One of the tastiest wits I’ve ever had. Super cloudy yellow with next to no head, but the flavor is refreshing with a slight tang at the end. Quality!

Poured from a can purchased from World of Beer. Looks like the classic wheat beer: yellow/golden color with white head. Aroma follows: wheat, banana, dough. Taste has that sharp lemon with light hops taste. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

desurfer (1190) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Draft at Crispy’s. Opaque light gold body with a white head. Aroma of banana and citrus. Sweet flavor with some tangy notes and minimal hops. Not really the biggest fan of white ales but it’d be good outside on a hot summer day.

Can from total wine Naples. Pours cloudy and yellow with a thin white head. Slight orange peel on the nose. Bigger fruitiness on the tongue. Finishes clean and slightly dry. Solid for style.

LtDan (1743) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Appearance: Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a quickly subsided white head.

Aroma: Classic wheat beer; banana and bread dough. Not much hop aroma.

Taste: Bread dough, banana lemon mild low hops.

Mouthfeel: A little chalky. Full bodied.

Overall: Very solid, very drinkable. I don’t usually drink Witbier, but this was a little drier and in a can, if I could get a good deal on 6-12, I’d put it in my session rotation.

b3shine (4465) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Can to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.; thanks drowland). Looks solid; a slightly hazy gold with lively carbonation and ample white head that dissipates steadily. Smells doughy and yeasty with notes of citrus and spices. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Alright, but forgettable.

Cunningham (4036) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2013

Appearance: Cloudy pale yellow color with almost no head.
Aroma: Wheat, yeast, some spices and light acidic.
Palate: Medium body. Moderate sweet and a moderate bitterness. Soft carbonation.
Taste: Wheat, coriander, yeast and mild fruity.
Overall impression: Felt a little flat. Otherwise quite plain. Disappointing first Cigar City ale.
