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 Floridaís Palmetto Prairies. Called QuŠqueros by the Spanish, these hardy and hard working Cracker Cowboys helped to shape the history of Florida, the nationís 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.

Banana bubblegum on the nose, and a cedar-like spice that penetrates the sense of smell. Pepper, coriander, orange bitters, dishcloth. Juicy and full on the palate, with as much orange as banana. Light but lengthy finish.

Gusher. Very cloudy tan yellow pour big head. Aroma of lemons, cuaracao, tart, saison funk, dusty belgian yeast. Tastes super yeasty with sturdy amount of lemony flavor to cut the earthiness. Great dry finish on a medium bodied beer. Very well executed, but not that mind blowing flavor wise.

thegreenrooster (3209) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Pour is a hazy gold with a large white head. Aroma is fresh orange peel and wheat malt. Flavor is much the same. Orange peel/coriander is fresh, then followed by wheat malt and a noticeable herbal hop. Much more hoppy than any other wit Iíve had makes this a solid American take on this Belgian style.

NikkTwist (1624) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Draft at Khyber Pass. Hazy golden straw pour that starts with a large fizzy head that than quickly disappears. Lots of citrus and bready notes. Tangerine peels. Lemon poundcake. Apricot marmalade. Bamboo. Orange cupcakes. Cloves. Big carbonation. Some Band-Aid in the nose. Big, fruity and blunt. Tastes nothing like either a Belgium or German Witt beer.

"The Cracker Cowboys of Scots-Irish descent. The term Cracker in Florida usage relates to the whip these "cow hunters" used to herd cattle in Florida." YEAH THATíS WHAT EVERYONE THINKS ABOUT WHEN WHITE CRACKER IS SAID. WHAT THE FUCK DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH BELGIAN WITBIER. That being said itís ok.

Aroma is doughy, some earth, a little spices - but slight in nature. Appearance is a somewhat hazy with a pale gold. Head setup, but fell fast. It went from frothy withe to almost non-existent. No lacing either. Taste is somewhere between soft and doughy and sour. There are other notes that are difficult to discern, spices and a very, very faint tobacco which could be the coriander. The feel is pleasant - medium bodied, with a fizzy carbonation, and complex dry finish. The scores on the applicable traits miss to really note how enjoyable this beer is. It is different than other Belgian Whites that Iíve had and itís really enjoyable. 1st Cigar City & 1st FL beer. Interested in seeing what else they have to offer.

Can from Whole Foods Plymouth Meeting. Pours turbid dark straw with 2-finger fluffy white head and a loudness to the head, which says to me, "The Steelers got screwed, and the Chargers shouldnít even be in the playoffs:. I agree, head. Nose is white aley hopcitrus, coriandery spice. Tastes hoppy and crisply citrus, with mid-palate coriander and a finishing yeasty, spicy, mildly funky note.
