I'm an avid fan of Belgian style wheat beer as well as German wheat beer.
Although I found it a bit of a challenge to remove the cans from the plastic carrier,
Florida Cracker Belgian style ale is probably the best US made wheat beer that I've had to date!

12oz can into my Chicago Bears Tervis Tumbler (I used to think this glass was good luck until my Bears lost to the Lions today).

A- Hazy gold-orange. Hard pour, nice white head that dissipated within minutes, almost no lacing.

S- Orange, coriander, apricot, a little funk

T- Apricot, georgia peach, orange, coriander, complex and delicious.

M- Very crisp, very easy to drink and light - I live in South Florida and am drinking this outside. Slightly carbonated - which is exactly what I'm after today. Long dry finish.

O- I'm amazed this beer's not rated higher. Cigar City is high high quality. This is an exceptional, every day drinker, outdoor drinker, just amazing beer. Sessionable. Inexpensive. I definitely recommend it!

appearance almost clear and is golden colored with full first segment finger head. Has that clean unmalted wheat smell. smells of fresh orange peel too.

taste on the tip of the tongue is the corianderish taste, lots of carbonation happening too. orange coming through as well. Like a fresh thick skinned orange fresh from harvest. any hops that are in this brew I cannot recognize. Drinkability is over the top. quaffing can happen with this brew. mouthfeel is lots of carbonation but not too much to avert gulping. very light mouthfeel.

I would definitely enjoy this beer again and would push this on lighter beer drinkers who are searching for blue moon/shocktop type beers. It's a beer that pushes those two beers out of the water for sure. Does this style beer much justice.
