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.

12 oz. can via trade with smith4498 - Pours a hazy golden color with a large three finger thick white head. Very little lacing. Lively carbonation. Aroma is soapy esters and spice. The flavor has a bit of citrus. Light to medium body. A nice, easy drinking beer. Thanks Jason.

jcr (2386) - 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.

Quite good for a style I don’t normally like. Looked great pale hazy thick fluffy head. Spicy and yeasty and refreshing. Nice complex feel.

August 31, 2015 - can from Knightly. Cloudy yellow pour with big head that faded quickly. Aroma was orange, grain and strong coriander. Taste was consistent with the aroma and nice spicy dry finish.

While the smell is lovely, you wouldn’t necessarily think Florida Cracker would be special going by that alone. There’s fruity yeast, bread, spices, and citrus. But the flavor. Holy shit. There’s banana, wheat malt, clove, coriander, pepper, lemon/orange zest, and candy. With summer coming to an end, it’s distressing to think how far away this beer is from me.

jrob21 (2968) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 30, 2015
On tap at Leon’s. Pretty decent to style with a little more pepper and spice on the finish. Requisite banana and toasty grain flavors mid palate. Hazy yellow color with big frothy white head.

GTAEgeek (1537) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Sample at Taps. Light, hazy yellow pour, with a big, off-white, pillowy head. The nose is straw, lemon juice, and cloves. Citrusy sweetness, with only a touch of bitterness. Light body, smooth, and a little acidic. This is a pretty nice, easy witbier.

HuskerTan (1038) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Draft/Fest. A- Spices, wheat, oranges. A- Golden color, cloudy liquid, white head. T- Wheat, coriander, spices, cloves, bitter orange peel, citrus. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- Not as good as I wanted it to be but I used to love this style and this was a major want. Now that I had it it didn’t quite hit the spot but it was certainly a solid beer.
