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.

Pour from can - thanks, Jeff! Despite the warning I didn’t pour it at all carefully, and made sure the shake the can up good before opening it. Pour was unsurprisingly cloudy, almost grey-brown, with white, soapy head. Aroma of banana and citrus. Taste: banana, orange, wheat, and a lot of pepper. Palate: Light body, crisp with a short, dry peppery finish.

Canned 06MAR13 Had this before at a wedding in FL. It was nice there. Pours a near excellent clarity golden with a solid central dome of bone white foam, unimpressive for the style. Smells of flowers, grass, some light lemon, a little bit of sweet dough and seeds of paradise. Flavor is nice and sweet with yeast overtures and some bits of coriander. Pretty one dimensional flavor, but refreshing nonetheless. Thin bodied for the style with hi carb and a wet finish. Meh.

Jamesthebrit (358) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 31, 2013
A: Musty... suuuper musty. Smells like a belgian. A much stronger aroma than I was expecting from thie lighter beer. A: Looks alright. Pours a hazy white lemon color. Head fades rapidly. T: Light... musty.... a tinge of citrus. Yeast finish. P; Light on the palate. Carbonation is heavy but non agressive. Really an ok beer. Definately could see this as a solid fall back if theres nothing else good. I appreciate the lighter belgian style rather than some of the more heavy ones. Not a bad beer.

Bamaboy1975 (242) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Pours a light and hazy straw yellow, minimal head goes away quickly. Lots of wheat smell here, crisp and clean. A little bubblegum flavor with some banana. I also Get the coriander in there. Lots of carbonation working here, making it very refreshing and easy to drink. I didn’t expect this to be this solid of a Belgian White, one of the better ones I’ve had in sometime.
