3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce can
Thanks to tastybeer for the Christmas present. This was a very fine sessionable beer with the bonus that it comes in a can. If something like this were available locally it would be perfect for camping, mowing the lawn, or picnics. Drink it fresh and you will have a great time.
Aroma / Appearance - Pouring with a huge pillowy head this collapses into a golden carbonated base. The stark white head that reminds is like a dusting of snow. White pepper, bubblegum, and fruity esters sparkle with a light feel.
Flavor / Palate - Light hints of bubblegum brighten the mood before bananas and white pepper tickle the throat. A doughy finish tastes like liquid bread shots. The mildly bitter finish fades quickly. This is an ideal session beer that would not last long in the fridge.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.
