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.

A: Musty... suuuper musty. Smells like a belgian. A much stronger aroma than I was expecting from thie lighter beer. A: Looks alright. Pours a hazy white lemon color. Head fades rapidly. T: Light... musty.... a tinge of citrus. Yeast finish. P; Light on the palate. Carbonation is heavy but non agressive. Really an ok beer. Definately could see this as a solid fall back if theres nothing else good. I appreciate the lighter belgian style rather than some of the more heavy ones. Not a bad beer.

Bardzo dobra, rześka, owocowa i przyprawowa, wytrawna pszenica. Przyprawowość kardamonowo-goździkowa, o dziwo. Fajnie że nie zamula słodyczą, tak jak to zdarza się belgijskim klasykom (vide Blanche de Namur). Nie nastawiałem się na nic zbytnio dobrego, bardzo przyjemne zaskoczenie.

nearbeer (4993) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 30, 2016
12 oz. canned Jun 13/2016. Orange-gold pour with a film of bubbles. Nose is orange peel, resin and bubblegum, with just a hint of coriander and toast. Tastes of orange juice, resin, bubblegum and a bit of coriander in the finish. Light-plus body has smooth medium carbonation and a bit too much orange peel for my tastes in a Wit.

An excellent white. All it needs is more alcohol. Smooth with a tad bite and a bit of sweet from the coriander. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (4127) - 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 (784) - 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
