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.

DrSilverworm (5899) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 11, 2014
12oz can, thanks to Mike L. Canned 2/6/14. Mostly hazy golden color. Pours with a bigger white head, fades to a consistent half-finger-thick amount. Active-looking carbonation. Couple loose splotches of lace. Medium body. Soft, smooth carbonation. Lightly slick. Good big yeast character in the aroma. Some light coriander spice. Moderate sweet, kind of spicy, zesty taste. Solid witbier, nothing outstanding, though. Not as intensely drinkable as their other flagships, in my opinion. Maybe a bit too authentically belgian-y

Can. Hazy orange and gold with a huge fluffy white head and very active carbonation. Aroma is citrus and coriander to start and finishes with a heaping dose of saison yeast. Taste mostly follows suit and adds a touch of peach and bready malt. Prickly carb and quick finish. Pretty decent.

Erzengel (2327) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2014
The beer starts smooth and Witbier-typical. The mainpart has the nice typical orange-coriander flavours, but these could be a bit more deeper and intense. The aftertaste is smooth, long, but I’m missing the typical dry spiciness of a good Belgium Witbier. For me it is too smooth and still too sweet in the background.
A nice try, but not an authentic copy of a Belgian Witbier --> 10/12/9/10

Leafs93 (1640) - Dunmore, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Pours gold with a medium white head. Aroma is citrus, yeast, earthy and coriander. Taste is sweet, spicy and quick hit of tartness. Light bodied with a crisp finish. I really enjoyed this, there is most definitely a saison component to this that works perfectly.

martin00sr (476) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2014
Tåget gul, livligt hvidt skum. Aroma: frugt hvede, sæbe... Diskret hvedesmag, en smule syre, mest i eftersmag. God prikkende carb. Forfriskende.

Can, pours hazy shimmering gold, with small to medium white head and lacing, fresh wheat, coriander, orange peel, and Belgian yeast are the tasting notes, crisp and refreshing man.

Can from Knightly in Orlando, FL. Pours gold with a foamy/fizzy white head. Aroma of zest. Med minus body. Flavor is zest, wheat and arguably coriander. It has a yeasty/earthy tang. Sort of a zesty saison? Finishes fairly dry, and hardly bitter. But the zest covers that.
