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. Lively lemon zest and floral coriander / perfume nose. Soft wheat, chewy malt, balanced bitterness, washing acid, lightly sweet. The spicing is done and the yeast is nicely aromatic and tart, but the malt is bit round / chewy where I want more crispness and leanness.

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Can. Pours a very hazy yellow orange with quickly settling white head, essentially no lacing. Aroma is sweet, vegetal, cereal, wheat and bread. Mild yeast, mildly fruity and bitter. Smells almost off-putting, not sure if that has anything to do with the can format. Fortunately the flavor is better, sweet, fruity, mild peach and citrus, mild spice and coriander with a slight chemical aftertaste. Beginning to suspect this was a bad/old can. Soft carbonation, medium-light body, and smooth texture. Drinkable, alright.

jmgreenuk (6751) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 12, 2013
Tap at GABF 2013. Poured a hazy straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is yeast acid. The flavour is weak sour with a smooth water acid apple barnyard palate.

strap (696) - Sindelfingen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2013
Cloudy yellow. Coriander and orange flavor. Peppery and crisp. A decent quality Belgian white. Cigar City is pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

haddon90 (1603) - Costa Mesa, California, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Can. Pours a foggy yellow color with a fizzy, white head. Thick, malt aroma with some banana and some spice. Nice flavor. Wheaty. Hint of nuts with a nice sense of banana. For coming out of a can, it’s a really nice beer. Cigar City is good.

ScipioA (405) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Got that wit look down - a bit hazy, very pale yellow, big pure white head. Meh on the aroma though, kind of bland wheatiness with a little bit of spice and some yeast. Pleasant flavors at least, tangy and citrusy. Finishes dry with a lingering lemon aftertaste.

airrick2003 (846) - Louisiana, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Appearance: hazy yellow, medium white head that is pretty dense Aroma: strong bread, lemon, perhaps some wildness, dough Taste: some doughy bread, hint of wildness, lemon, coriander Palate: average c02, heavy mouthfeel, leaves a lemon aftertaste Overall: this stuff is great, not an in your face saison tho, the wildness is a lot more subtle, great mouthfeel ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The yeast dominate the flavor of this beer. Not enjoyable to me. Very much belgian in all ways. Malt and hop are not dominate parts of this beer. I had high expectations based on marketing. Fail.
