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.

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.

Aroma: Wheat, yeast, some spices and light acidic.
Palate: Medium body. Moderate sweet and a moderate bitterness. Soft carbonation.

Scopey (5521) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2013
Tap at CCB. It pours hazy golden yellow with a small white head. The nose is wheat, light herbal, earth, hay, faint smoke, citrus and some tartness. The taste is smooth, light tartness, orange, lemon, wheat, cracker and coriander with a dry finish. Light-medium body, fine carbonation and light stickiness. For what it is...smooth, well-balanced, refreshing and easy drinking.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2013
From the can. Pours straw and hazy, white creamy head. Nose is subdued, some wet wheat and faint citrus. On tasting, pretty bland and lacking in real yeast punch of citrus. Bready and subtle fruit, a bit vegetal as well. Very mediocre wit.

AWISLguy (1048) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Can brought by ck1, thanks bro! Pours a very pale yellow with many fine bubbles and a white head. Aroma has fruit (with at least lemons) and yeast and bread. Taste is of sweet fruit, bread slight citrus. Light and refreshing. A bit light on flavor though too. Finishes lite and fruity sweet. Shrug? Better than a macro.

I got this while I was in Florida, and then when I got back home my Secret Santa had sent it as well. That’s cool, though, I like this beer. Cloudy pale yellow, fragile white head. Smells like coriander and orange peel, and crackery malts. Flavor is nicely light, with some spices and pepper. Very refreshing.
