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. pours hazed straw yellow with foamy white head. nose has wheat malt, slight orange and pepper also noted. flavors have wheat malt, peppery, thin mouth feel, bit generic tasting and not a very good example of the style. I assume rather crushable in the florida heat.

mikedR (1276) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2013
I'm diggin' this. Very saison like. Strong Belgian, saison aroma. Carbonated like an old country beer too -- as in very. Taste is saison yeasty base, with requisite spiciness and some (Florida?) citrus notes on top. Quite nice! At 5% ABV, a good session -- or a good brew when you have to drive 400 miles the next day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2013 From a can, nice light belgian aroma with some citrus and the taste is great. Good summer drinking and nice citrus bready flavor. First CC beer and happy about it.

NeoHippie2 (1043) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Hazy golden pour with a white head. Wheat and spices on the nose. Classic Belgian wit beer style with a nice tang on the finish from the saison yeast. Definitely a unique touch there. Respectable brew.

unclemattie (4223) - Georgia, USA - MAY 29, 2013
12oz white with blue, can. Pours hazy yellow gold color. White fizz. Aroma of coriander, dried citrus peel, and (ironically) a small hint of unsalted crackers. Active carbonation. Tastes like airy pale malts, bread, coriander. Finishes with bread flavor. Too bad I can’t drink these Bloating Belgian style beers anymore. (3715)

Sigmund (5181) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2013
355 ml can at Lompa Friluft, Oslo. ABV is 5.0%. Hazy pale golden colour, moderate white head. Strong aroma and flavour of Belgian saison yeast, curacao orange peel and coriander. Fizzy mouthfeel. A good witbier, but no better than the Belgian originals, so it seems rather superfluous to import it to Europe.

On tap at Dahlias, pours a hazy golden with a bubbly white head, the aroma has a ton of bubblegum with some orange and zest, really nice on a hot day in Florida, flavor also has some sugar and bubblegum with a fruity finish, crisp and refreshing.
