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, shared with BBGTC. Pours a hazy blonde body with a small white head. Nose is citrus, wheat, coriander, soapy herbs and hints of straw. Taste is citrus, soapy herbs, coriander, wheat and hints of straw and bread dough. Medium body and carbonation. Fair enough, but no winner.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5095) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy bright yellow color with a huge creamy-fluffy yellow-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was dryish cracker, pepper, lemon, coriander and dust. The flavor was tart lemon, pepper, dust, cracker and had a sour and astringent presence. Long sour lemon finish. Medium body. Ok.

wchesser (1245) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Slightly cloudy deep yellow. Nose of light coriander, wheat, fruity yeast aromas. Wheat, light spice, and yeast driven finish. Definitely leans more towards what I would like of as a French yeast than belgian. Ok for a hot day, but alas it ain’t hot.

hoju777 (152) - FRANCE - OCT 27, 2014
Smells like Hoegaarden with a piece of burnt toast that fell in it. Very strong smell. It was gross at first, but it gets better. More opaque than Hoegaarden. Tastes like Hoegaarden with a piece of burnt toast in it. But it gets better. Very good. Very thick and nice. An "elevated" Hoegaarden.

rollinsr (388) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - OCT 19, 2014
Pours cloudy yellow with a small amount of white head and a bit of yeast slurry. The nose is pungent citrus with the orange peel dominating with some other lighter esters. Flavor is very smooth and sweet. again the orange flavors are dominant but there is also a very subtle doughy texture present.

greenclansman (881) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - NOV 14, 2014
One of the best wit beers i ever had, without being a typical one. Nice sharp aromas with a twist of sourness in taste. Very nice beer.

John25 (694) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Can. Citrus and spiced yeasty aroma. Refreshing with a dry finish. Clean and easy. The orange peel really shows up too. Perfect poolside in Florida. Very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice creamy shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry sour-ish grainy, weeds, wheat, wet grass, almonds, citrus peel, hay, spices, flowers.
