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.

Vienna sausage, mustard, bubble gum, Belgian yeast, tangerine aroma. Sand and seafoam can -- this is a great nod to traditional Florida. "Cracker" may perceived as a derogatory to some, akin to the "N" word, but no true Cracker resents being called a Cracker, and no Florida transplant would dare use the word. Cloudy, mellow gold, thin white head. Prominent veggie/grassy note (like chewing on a green twig), a little tangy, mineral water flavors, lightly bittered. Wet, paper bag mouthfeel, medium to slightly light body. Grassy, papery, a little pepper, a little tangerine finish. Tangy aftertaste. Think I would have preferred that this be a little sweeter, and have a little more orange prominence, but well done. Can, Market Square Liquors.

NachlamSie (2752) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Pint at Paddywagon Sarasota. Pours a cloudy yellow. The aroma is very papery hoppy with clean clove notes. The flavor reveals tasteful esters that imply banana. The finish lingers with tons of wheaty, papery notes. It really does make me think of crackers, the literal ones. The tastefulness of the yeast and the abundance of wheat flavor makes this a good ale.

Tmoney99 (10580) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Draft sample. Poured hazy golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeast, coriander and sweet citrus aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium spice sweet flavor with a medium sweet spice finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a refreshing beer.

Coming from someone that’s not a huge fan of Belgian wits... Pours a crisp golden straw with a full white head. Nose is quite spiced... coriander, lemon peel, nutmeg, perhaps? Flavor is spiced with a nice citrus back. Smooth and quite drinkable. Still not my favorite style, but maybe a little less not favorite.

zgaier (1364) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Pours a hazy golden yellow with a white head and aroma of yeast and spices. Taste is sweet, of spices, yeast, fruits, and malt with a dry, spicy finish. Very drinkable, light, refreshing brew

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 26, 2012
12oz can, purchased from Luekens Liquors. Pours a hazy golden color, lightly effervescent; mixed-bubbled white head that readily departs. Soft notes of coriander and lemon peel in the aroma; a modest amount of pepper, spicing. Medium body; medium-high carbonation; lively acidity and bubbles along the perimeter of the tongue; pinpoint mouthfeel. While this somewhat avoids the pejorative "coriander soup" take on witbiers, there’s definitely a slight excess of things here: a hefty core viscosity and sweetness, honeyed and crystalline, with plenty of coriander and bitterness (both from citrus peel and the plentiful, seemingly, hop additions), and just a touch of lemony tartness; this is a hefty and generous witbier, for sure. Medium-length finish of white pepper and toastiness.

On tap at CCB. Aroma of citrus and spice. Has a golden-ish look to it. Fairly light beer. Ok taste.

nick76 (4213) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2012
The aroma has spice, metal, wheat, citrus, yeast, and herbs. The appearance is hazy gold with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall an average Wit.

On tap at the brewpub on 3/3/2012 with James, Andy, PJ. Hazy, medium gold pour with white head. Mellow flavor profile with barnyard notes, almost bretty. Zesty, but not fruity.

deyholla (6605) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a clear pale gold with a white head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma has a lot of corriander with a hint of light citrus, light fruit and light grains. Flavor is heavy corriander as well with a bit of underlying light fruit, but dominated by the corriander.
