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.

It’s ok, but not one of my fav whites. Poured at a good temperature with a smallish off-white head that vanishes quickly and no lace. Color is a hazy/cloudy yellow. Aroma is yeast, citrus peel, spice, malt. Flavor’s like nose, tang in front along with some bitter, then the other qualities. As it warms more citrus peel comes out. The combination of tang and bettering agents yields a reaction on the back of the tongue that isn’t that pleasant; other than that body/carbonation are decent. Finish is like flavor, fairly long, and while not bad, Ike hooegardens much more.

A nice take on the Belgian white. Pours brite yellow and cloudy with a tall white head. Aroma is easy and pleasant with notes of yeast. A crisp beer with a lot of wheat and citrus.

theisti (3175) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Shaker pint draft at the Cigar City Airport Pub in Tampa, Florida. The pour is a cloudy yellow white with a smallish white head. The aroma is lemon citrus coriander along with general Belgian spice. The taste is the grain wheat along with citrus peel and the Wit yeast. Above average spicing. The palate is light bodied, unfiltered mouthfeel soft carbonation and a wheat grain and grass finish. Solid.

kramer (4856) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Can. Pours a hazy yellow gold body under a small fizzy white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is pretty nice, restrained coriander and orange peel with some nice yeastiness and wheat. The flavor is pretty nice as well, maybe a touch heavy on the coriander for me, but it’s not terrible. Nice amount of yeastiness though. Light bodied and quite refreshing with an almost creamy texture. Good beer.

Hazy gold with a small white head. Coriander and citrus aroma. Taste is bread, spice and citrus. Greater than the sum of its parts.

Can from... somewhere. Enjoyed at the TLF. Wow that’s refreshing. Nice hit of lemony citrus with some yeast and wheat. Almost a touch off tartness too. Very enjoyable.
