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.

12 oz. can via trade with smith4498 - Pours a hazy golden color with a large three finger thick white head. Very little lacing. Lively carbonation. Aroma is soapy esters and spice. The flavor has a bit of citrus. Light to medium body. A nice, easy drinking beer. Thanks Jason.

SpringsLicker (3046) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Pours hazy medium yellow under a fleeting white head. Fresh lemon candy aroma. The flavor is ever so slightly sweet and delivered on a spritzy palate with a citric/carbonic acid touch to the finish. Nice beer.

arkurzynski (1406) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Can from beernads - thanks. Hazy golden color with big head head. Sweet clove and banana with mild vanilla, malted wheat and lemon/orange zest. Some mild floral hops. Flavor is watered-down citrus with wet wheat malt, faint vanilla and a mild hop finish. Great nose with average flavor profile. One of the better wits I’ve had. Good for a boring style.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Can as an extra from newcigarz (thanks man!). Aroma is Belgian yeast, toasted banana cream, coriander, and slight orange peel. Flavor smooths over the fruit flavors to bring out the wit. This is no thin wit either. Very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Was not impressed with this brew, very carbonated and almost soda-like, was difficult to taste anything more.

radarsock (824) - Vermont, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Was an extra from markwise—thanks! Can. Pours a clear, hazy orangeade into my second favorite glass, The Saturday Evening Post, "Asleep On the Job". First time drinking out of this tumbler. Aromas of bananas, banana peppers, wheat toast, cinnamon, orange peel, and coriander, which, in all honestly kinda kills it for me. Coriander: you either love it or hate it. I don’t hate it, but fuckin’ hell is it strange. Tastes predominately the same. Yeasty with some hard-boiled eggs, by swallow. Thin.

BBB63 (5750) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Woo Hoo, rating #100 for this brew. Got the can from my beer buddy Eric and served in my Hoegaarden tumbler: Pours the expected hazy straw hue with a lasting fizzy head. The aroma has notes of white wheat, orange zest, coriander, wildflowers and pils malts. Very tradition smelling, I honestly am shocked for I thought CCB would twist it more but I am happy with this. The taste follows suit, zesty fruits over a layer of wheat husk and base pils malts with a finish of moderate spices. The mouth feel is sprite and uber refreshing, a perfect beer for a hot day but works even on a springlike day in January in Indiana.

Lubiere (9440) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2013
A hazed blonde wit with a thin white head. In aroma, beautiful banana esters, cloves, coriander and light sulfur. In mouth, a classic wit with bananas, cloves, creamy mouthfeel, nice. On tap at brewery, Dec. 9 2012.
