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.

White head fizzles away to nothing almost as fast as I can pour, while the beer looks a cloudy peach with some bubbles rising.
Doughy nose shows off lemon sponge cake-like notes of malt and yeast combined, with strong coriander spiciness drying the finish. Other than the doughiness from the yeast, the aroma seems pleasant, if somewhat underwhelming.
Fizzy yet firmly carbonated, the spices don’t dominate the flavor, but do assert themselves quite well, lending lots of black pepper notes and citrus dryness. It balances the lightly sweet pale malts and the yeastiness also adds some light fruitiness. Nice and dry overall, with enough carbonation to make it very quenching. Good stuff, not reinventing the wheel here, but extremely drinkable.

12 oz can. Misty yellow orange with a brief head. Nose is wheat, lemon zest, vanilla and coriander. Crisp, clean and eminently quenching especially after an hour of snow shovelling. Taste is lemonade, green banana and coriander. Simple, classic wit with a Cigar City tropical twist. Cool stuff.

12oz can poured into shaker pint. Hazy yellow liquid with a modest one-finger head that dissipates quickly and leaves little lacing. Aroma is lemon and orange peel, dusty wheat, and coriander. Taste is similar with citrus sweetness and some spicy bite. Light body, thin texture, moderate carbonation, abrupt drying finish.

StefanSD (2081) - Lakeside, California, USA - JAN 27, 2014
12 oz can courtesy of Secret Santa. Thanks. Pours yellow with a medium white head that has good retention. The aroma is spicy coriander and white pepper. The taste, like the aroma, also has a good amount of corriander, plus some lemon zest and tangerine; all set nicely in a biscuity malt base. The palate is light but appropriate and the carbonation is lively. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: Decent Wit, I’d drink again.
