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 Floridas Palmetto Prairies. Called Ququeros by the Spanish, these hardy and hard working Cracker Cowboys helped to shape the history of Florida, the nations 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.

DarkSong (374) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2017
12 oz can. It pours a hazy straw yellow with a small white head. I smell lemon & orange, coriander & wheat with a funky aroma from the saison yeast. I taste lemon, a cream of wheat flavor, spices & clove. This seems like a very unusual interpretation of a wit. Its good though. I like it.

hman43 (1499) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - APR 29, 2017
It pours pale yellow with a full white head. The head retention is strong with plenty of lace. It has aromas that feature earthly elements, lemon, coriander, wheat and orange. It has a spicy taste with the coriander and orange in the forefront. There is a strong wheat and lemon presence as well. Earthly elements and other spices round out the taste. It has a moderately light body with a spicy dry aftertaste. Overall, this is a lighter beer with plenty of spices, orange and lemon flavors and earthly elements with a dry finish.

Cant see appearance in can. Taste is bitter hops, not too strong, just bad taste, one-dimensional, no sweetness at all, medium bitter carbonation-bleh

HourGlass13 (803) - North Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2017
Pours up a hazy yellow, with a thick, white head, some active bubbles, and pretty substantial lacing on the glass. Aroma is some funky yeast, mild coriander spice, with white wheat bread. Taste is also slightly spicy with a hint of citrus rind. There is the spice or white pepper thing, along with metallic tap water. Mouthfeel is light. Not bad.

freekyp (2157) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - APR 21, 2017
An excellent slightly non-traditional version of a Belgian witbier, Florida Crackers Saison yeast fermentation brings out interesting spice notes nit present in other similar wits. White pepper and sage mingle with requisite coriander. Light orange tartness in creases the appeal even more. Pours hazy yellow with a small pure white head. A full flavored summer beer that didnt such at all.
