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.

MiP (13046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2014
Can, 5.5%. Faint lemon peel aroma, the coriander seems to be hidden behind it. Cloudy pale yellow colour. Fizzy, unstable white head. The flavour is citric and yeasty with a little paper. Vinous aftertaste, like cheap champagne or white wine. Also a rough bitterness in the finish.

Oakes (11786) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2012
Pale and hazy. Fruity and light spicy aroma. Light body. Fruity (lime) and with a hint of spice. Not super exciting but it is quite refreshing, something that comes in handy down here.

bhensonb (10345) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 21, 2014
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.

Draft sample. Poured hazy golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeast, coriander and sweet citrus aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium spice sweet flavor with a medium sweet spice finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a refreshing beer.

Can @ home. Thanks, Jacob. Hazy golden pour with a fluffy white head. Smells more citrusy than expected, quite peppery as well. Biscuit, dough, and lots of cracker malt. A nice yeasty quality and somewhat floral. Mild fruit esters. Flavor is pleasantly sweet and malty. Nice biscuit and dough chewiness. Hints of lemon, apple, banana, and orange. Peppery bite and bitterness on the finish.
