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.

From a can poured in a glass. Flavor is wheatey with intense coriander kick. Definitely an American interpretation. Pretty good, nice clean refreshing finish. Good, but unexceptional white.

Pours hazy orange with a large white head. Smells lightl fruity, lightl sweet. Taste is soft fruitness with a hint of spice. Light-bodied with a slick texture and average mouth-carbonation, Cigar City Florida Cracker White Ale finishes with a light lingering fruitiness.

Look: pours a cloudy gold. Bright white head. Smell: clove. Spices. Bananas. Belgian yeast. Bread. Taste: clove. Banana. Bread. Belgian year. Feel: thin mouth feel. Medium high carbonation. Overall: too much spice and banana for me. Belgian beers just aren't my style. First drank: home 1/24/15 Vintage: 12/5/14

Coriander and orange nose. Flavor begins with orange zest acidity, which gives way to very pronounced coriander and spicy yeast, light tartness mid palate, finishes grainy and dry. Really nice wit

hotstuff (4388) - Indiana, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Rated on 4-22-213 (Canned on 28 Dec 12) The appearance is a large foamy white head that mostly diminishes, transparent straw body, very little carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is wheat, orange peel, sweet, and coriander. The flavor is wheat, sweet, coriander, lightly fruity, and light citrus. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. A quaffable refreshing session beer on a Spring day.
