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.

Strykzone (5042) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Sampled at mwbbf. Yellow gold and very hazy. A big white head. Thick lacing. A funky, musty and fruity nose. The flavorbis much cleaner, even crisp. Oranges are fresh and pleasant. Wheat notes. Nothing crazy at all here. A steaight forward wit with oranges. But I do like it.

JDBaker11058 (1334) - Maryland, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Appearance: cloudy bright orange gold with two fingers of creamy white head, minimal lacing. Aroma: hint of lactic sourness, strong citrus, light wheat, good dose of coriander. Taste: bright and citrusy, with coriander, cracked cereal grains, a hint of white pepper. Finish: lingering light spice, primarily coriander, and a hint of that wheaty sour twang; palate is light, with extremely active carbonation that imparts a bit of minerality. Notes: Can from the now-defunct LetsPour.com :( Quite fine, although certainly not the best American version of the style. Good palate. Worth noting that of the two cans I tried, one had clearly gone off, although they were canned at the same time...

From a tap at the Sierra Nevada Beercamp Across America. The pour is a cloudy white with notes of coriander and flower.

bubbleflubber (1850) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 20, 2014
This pours a hazy straw into the glass with a fully diminished head that leaves no lacing. The nose is of hay and some grassiness. Lots of citrus and esters to the tongue, with some grain and cracker in the mid-palate, finishing grassy. The palate is perfect for summer, with subtle carbonation and a very easy drinking mouthfeel. another reason to give it up to Cigar City for making some of the best beer in the country. Prost!

Hazy straw yellow... Aroma of wheat, Belgian spices... Flavor is boring, watery, light wit, some lemongrass, crackers... Okay at best ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MadRobin (2035) - Silver Spring, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Poured from 12 oz. can. The initial pour is almost entirely a huge foamy near white head. This eventually settles to yield a cloudy yellow liquid topped by a small head with sparse lacing. Aroma of lemony citrus, pepper, wheat and coriander. Taste of lemon, coriander, wheat, pepper, yeast, orange peel and banana. Light/medium body and medium carbonation. Although light, the body is OK for a lemony beer like this. I guess I'm just not a fan of "refreshing" beers. I've had far better witbiers that did not remind me of lemonade. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
