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.

Petkus331 (247) - Redford, Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Aroma of cereal grain, coriander, banana, a hint of sage. Appears hazy bright yellow, ring of foam, minimum lace. Taste is very light of sweet cereal grain. Palate is very active, a stingy CO2 presence. Overall, good.

Serving: can from MacDowell Brew Kitchen. Pale yellow pour with a slight white head. The nose has a bit of bread dough, yeast, orange, and lemon. Smooth on the tongue. Nice mix of wheat, yeast, and citrus. Nice clean finish. Very solid for the style.

ben4321 (3861) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Location: 12 oz cans from a grocery store, this one is from 8/11/14

Aroma: It is heavy spice/wheat, lots of banana, some orange peel, and a good amount more spice
Appearance: It pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a small white head and streaky lace
Flavor: The flavor is a little sweet and a little wheaty, with some clean, balancing bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, leaning light, with a fizzy feel, and a clean, dry finish on the mouth
Overall Impression: I liked this beer. It may not be amazing, but it is a better than average example of the style. This is a nice canned offering.

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Can:   Soft spices and citrusy bits.   A little wheaty, nice carbonation.   A good summer quaffer.   Nothing like Allagash, but a good summer drinker.   Moderate spices and body.   Wished it were a little brighter, but at least its clean.   Thanks Matt!

vyvvy (3951) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Sampled at Midwest Belgian Beer Festival 2014 - Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. The aroma has smooth wheat, coriander, tart orange and all is well integrated. It has a light smooth body with very light carbonation. The flavor begins with smooth wheat, oakiness, light spice, hints of orange and the balance that was nice on the aroma continues on the taste. The finish is smooth, but introduces a sharp bite. Solid wit.

Can, thanks to my brother! Wheat aroma with notes of citrus and spice. Pours cloudy straw colored with a decent white head that dissipated rapidly and no lacing. Starts with a lot of wheat flavor as well as some of the coriander flavor. Finishes dry with a slight sourness because the orange citrus and a slightly spicy note. Good wit.
