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.

Jlo7399 (218) - Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Cloudy yellow pour. Aroma is citrus and a bit of honey like sweetness. Taste is citrus, sweet, a little spicy. Medium/light palate that is refreshing. Can’t wait for this one in the can.

ganache (6029) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 13, 2017
Sixer of cans from Canal's, where CC products have finally started to show up in numbers. Nose and mouth very strong wheat character without too much slime, strong orange peel, coriander, really a textbook wit that doesn't get too oily, also stays fresh and bright without drowning in floor cleaner or grainy coriander soup. Pour hazy pale golden with orange highlights here and there, a very soapy, very bright white head that struggles to leave any lace behind. Faint/low bitterness, semi-sweet but mostly drier than that, hint of black pepper, cracker and bread in the finish, some nice maltiness for bonus points. But really, textbook, enjoyable. [2017.10.13: 3.8]

Speko (468) - DENMARK - OCT 13, 2017
Can 0,33. Pours clear orange with small white head. Fruits, yeast, corriander, orange. Medium to thin body and average carbonation.

vinivini (2814) - Gomel, BELARUS - OCT 5, 2017
Can. Cloudy honey yellow. Nice white well-lacing head. Aroma: very fruity & yeasty. Crisp & fresh. Light to medium body. Spicy taste dominated by coriander (somewhat out of balance). Fruit & yeast in the background. Light bitterness. Well-made. Yet not my kind of Witbier.

LazyPyro (1464) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2017
355ml can. Cloudy golden colour with a thin head. Aroma: coriander, orange peel, banana. Taste: huge hit of orange peel/zest, spices, coriander, smooth malt, vanilla, fairly sweet, light bitter dry finish. Medium body, smooth but carbonation feels quite spritzy at first. Decent wit.

obguthr (6585) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2017
Coriander nose, somewhat fecal. Cloudy gold, thin head. Lemon and coriander, meringue hints. Medium body, moderate carbonation.

Rumbero (87) - Miami, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2017
Aroma: bready cereal. very citrusy, like OJ almost. sustained honey sweetness from the wheat malt. peppery-like spices. Appearance: pours a very hazy straw color with an inch thick frothy white head that unfortunately (and longevity is expected in this style) dissipates rather quickly leaving a thin 1/8" head. Taste: very citrusy orange juice with plenty of malt sweetness and just enough bitterness for balance only. coriander creates a peppery sensation. Palate: the body is medium, the texture creamy, carbonation is crisp and astringency subtle. right on. Finish is long and sweet with all its citrusy glory lingering. Overall: I like this beer a lot although the citrusy levels and spicy character are a bit more in your face than expected for the Belgian Wit category. But it works. Refreshing and delicious. Only fault is the weak head retention which is characteristic of Wits.

weordie (1352) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2017
Pours orange with a thick, foamy head. Aroma is a little lacking, some orange and a little coriander. Flavour is lacking too. A little coriander but thats it.

axl (1030) - Lund, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2017
Hazy golden with white head. Aroma is citrus, wheat, light yeast, light herbs and light passion fruit. Taste is wheat, yeast, light cilantro, citrus and light passion fruit. Light mouth, light carb and fruity herbal aftertadte.

BillWyce (1098) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2017
Pours hazy straw color with a 1-finger white head. Aroma of orange mixed with an earthy note. Body is light, with a brief finish. Sweet, citrusy flavor with a mild spice note from the coriander underneath. Some earthiness as it warms.

hershiser2 (3583) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2017
Can from Total Wine, Fredericksburg. Pours hazy golden with a large, soft white head. Aroma is white bread, coriander, little else. Flavor is banana (missing from the nose), coriander, yeast, dough (or more like flour, I suppose). Flavor is good.
