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.

Mikkeller & Friends. Keg share with Fonefan, Rlgk and ChrisO. Lightly hazy gold beer, small white head. Palate is very crisp and quite dry. Dry pale malt, light dry cream. Whisper of sourish fruits and spice. Light dry finish. No obvious flaws here but pretty dull by Cigar City standards.

Can at home in CT. Pours cloudy yellow with a rich, pure white foam head that fizzes away slowly. Aroma holds some inviting notes of lightly tangy lemon and mellow spices. Light sweet flavor with restrained, doughy malt sugars, subtle yeasty wheat, very light straw bitterness, soft citrus fruits, light tang. Light bodied with average carbonation. Clean and quite crisp to finish with moderate sweetness, further doughy malts, light dryness, lemon, soft pepper and spices. A very nice witbier. Hugely drinkable stuff, nicely balanced.
