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 from Total Wine, JAX. Well, was hoping for a slightly more interesting variation on the style from this usually fine brewery. Clean golden pour, lively carbonation, a good bit of grass and modest fruit on the nose. Vibrant mouthfeel but taste is a bit indistinct, with not much curacao or anything to give shape to the generic spiciness/grassiness.

Pours a nice hazy yellow with a very big fluffy white head that fades but stays around at a smallish size and leaves nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is spicy and floral with plenty of fruit forward notes, tangerine & orange specifically. Some ginger is in there, and as weird as it is, there is something about this brew that reminds me of ketchup. Thankfully it’s not like a ketchup bomb or anything, generally it smells pretty good.

The flavor is very enjoyable. Everything I expect from a wit, nice fruitiness, mildly tart... but more sharp, plenty of coriander, but not an overwhelming dosing of it. I like the nice bitterness in this one, it seems more citrus rind than hop deriven. The fruity pebble flavor, while there is totally subdued, and the sweetness level is very controlled keeping a nice dry finish. The bitterness works in kind of a weird way on the finish.

Pretty damned refreshing.

This canned brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy fine to medium sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark orange colored body and a poor lacing. The almost non-existent aroma was cardboard. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The deep flavor contained notes of semi-sweet floral hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.
