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.

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.

Can from my father (bought in Florida, possibly at the brewery). Light spicy and fruity smell. Similar taste. A bit sweet. Light body. Very refreshing.

MrHangover (3999) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2016
Draft. Pours a hazy straw yellow beer with a small white head on top. Aroma of lemon, light herbs, coriander and some cheesy notes. Flavor is very fresh, citrussy, lemon, hint of fresh white grapes. Very nice for the style, one of the better examples I’ve had in a while. Gently carbonated, short bittersweet finish.

Tognetta (743) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - OCT 7, 2016
Laranja claro de média turbidez, esouma branca de média formação e pouca persistência. Aroma citrico alaranjado, malte aparente, média intensidade e boa persistência. Paladar de leve acidez e amargor, dulçor inicia discreto e cresce com aumento da temperatura. Corpo leve e média carbonatação. Final de leve persistência, a laranja mantém o frescor e persistência durante todo o tempo. Refrescante.

Florida Cracker has a thick, spongy, white head, a hazy, yellow-gold appearance, some bubbles, and pretty substantial lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of very low level coriander spice, with white wheat bread. Taste is similarly dull & flaccid, with maybe, perhaps, a hint of citrus rind. There is the spice or white pepper thing, though. Tap water is picked up. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Cigar City’s Florida Cracker finishes medium wet and dull. RJT

Light yellowish orange hazy in color. Smells like citrus with the same taste. Easy on the palate and easy to drink I like this and would pick up more of this beer. Had a light whitish head when poured.

Decent wit. Notes of coriander and spice are mild but enough to distinguish Fairly light in the mouth makes this a highly drinkable beer, especially in hot weather..
