The comparison to Blue Moon is not possible to avoid. Cracker White is a bit lighter and more unique than a Moon. Tried it out of the can and then tried it poured ice cold into a pilsner glass with a slice of organic orange. It's nothing straight out of the can. However, poured over the orange slice and ice cold, it beats a Moon hands down. The color meshes with the orange in the glass. Overall, this is a very, very enjoyable ale here in the Northeast Florida heat and we'll be buying it on a regular basis.

Poured this one aggressively so got a 3 finger head which fell to a half inch quickly then fell to ring. Lots of carbonation in this one. Has a yellowish color. Light lacing.
The coriander dominates the nose with a slight sour finish.
Has a coriander taste with a slight lemon bitter.
The mouthfeel is light.
Overall I enjoyed this offering. Very refreshing in Georgia heat. Not one of my favorite styles but can see this one in the Spring/Summer rotation.

Thanks to LiquidDegenerate for this

Pour: Hazy straw with lively bubbles rising. There was a fluffy 2 finger head that receded quickly.

Smell: Wheat, touch of orange, lemon, coriander and some vanilla.

Taste: Banana, cracker, doughy, lemon, some orange and some spice (pepper?). Quite sweet on the palate initially and finishes with that yeast quality.

Mouthfeel: This is unbelievably easy to drink and would be a spectacular hot summer drinking beer. It has a light body and prickly carbonation yet at the same time is creamy. Alcohol is undistinguishable.

Overall: Though witbier is not my favorite style this one is surprisingly refreshing and enjoyable.
