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.

hoju777 (152) - FRANCE - OCT 27, 2014
Smells like Hoegaarden with a piece of burnt toast that fell in it. Very strong smell. It was gross at first, but it gets better. More opaque than Hoegaarden. Tastes like Hoegaarden with a piece of burnt toast in it. But it gets better. Very good. Very thick and nice. An "elevated" Hoegaarden.

rollinsr (384) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - OCT 19, 2014
Pours cloudy yellow with a small amount of white head and a bit of yeast slurry. The nose is pungent citrus with the orange peel dominating with some other lighter esters. Flavor is very smooth and sweet. again the orange flavors are dominant but there is also a very subtle doughy texture present.

wchesser (1219) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Slightly cloudy deep yellow. Nose of light coriander, wheat, fruity yeast aromas. Wheat, light spice, and yeast driven finish. Definitely leans more towards what I would like of as a French yeast than belgian. Ok for a hot day, but alas it ain’t hot.

Doofgoblin (321) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Can. For a wit it’s really pretty good. Aroma is light but certainly that Belgian yeast strain in there is coming through. The taste certainly has a good amount of fruitiness and yeasty esters. The main character here is the yeast strain, no question. The peel and the coriander are pretty much an after thought. Finish clean with a faint lingering sweet bread taste. Refreshing.

drjay44 (2705) - Salida, Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2014
12 oz. can thanks to Chris. 5.5% ABV per the label. Pours a medium, poorly retained, white head over a cloudy light gold (SRM 4) body.....nose is coriander, light citrus notes, wheat, no hops, light clove, balance to the adjuncts.....taste initially is light floral honey notes, with light wheat, coriander, orange peel, becoming dry with very slight finishing bitterness from the hops....mouth feel, light of medium body, no alcohol, carbonation high with moderate acid. This is a light clean refreshing beer. I would like a bit more coriander, but otherwise it is a very well done beer. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7
