Canned 9/11/2014.

Served cold into a goblet, Florida Cracker is a hazy pale yellow color with thin white head.

Aroma is sweet, yeasty, and slightly fruity.

Flavor is sweet but balanced with just enough bitterness to get by. Lemon, coriander, and Belgian wit yeast seem to be the predominant flavor notes.

Mouthfeel is light in body and appropriately carbonated for the style.

Overall a very good American take on this style.
