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.

katrinaez (1092) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2015
Cloudy in appearance, mostly traditional wheat beer aroma worth a hint of orange. Coriander is overpowering to the taste, with hints of something else but you can’t identify as vanilla. Still drinkable. Tap.

jcr (2517) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Can. Cloudy light gold. Frothy white head. Aroma of lemon zest, citrus, orange, coriander, floral hops, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter and lightly tart. Medium body, chewy texture, moderate carbonation. Light clove, lemon and pineapple tastes along with biscuit and wheat. Body is thicker than a witbier should be. Easy drinking that would have improved with crispness.

12 oz can. Pours a very hazy and cloudy golden yellow color and topped by a thick, fluffy head of off white foam that shows good rentention. The foam slowly settles to a thin film and leaves sudsy lacing on the glass. The aroma shows notes of citrus orange peel, wheat, coriander, and clove to go with a toasted bread and wheat malt base. The flavor follows with some grainy wheat, citrus fruit, coriander, clove, and a touch of cracked pepper. The saison yeast dries things out and gives it a spicy touch. Light in body and smooth with ample carbonation that leads to a nice,spicy and dry finish. Easy drinking, refreshing and a really nice take on the witbier style. Perfect for the hot summer days.
