Cigar City Florida Cracker

Poured from a 12 oz can into a shaker pint glass. Served chilled...

A) A golden brew with a bit of haze to it. Lots of bubble trails. Nearly two fingers of white foam reached the top of the pint. This settled quickly.

S) Pale malt, yeast, coriander, lemon zest, and a little spice that had me thinking black pepper.

T) Faint wheat, citrus flavors of orange peel and a little lemon too. The yeast gives it a little farmhouse funk. Nice spices as well.

M) Medium to lighter medium. This is well carbonated. Crisp and highly refreshing. Finishes dry with a nice aftertaste.

O) This was pretty darn good. Definitely a great option on a warm day. It's also nice that it's in cans. I'd buy some if it were in Wisconsin, but it's not. Oh well....

A-Cloudy yellow, nicely carbonated, one finger head that doesn't last.

S-Orange, lemon, some grass, nice wheat and even vanilla.

T-Nice balance of orange and lemon. With corriander and grass. Mild wheat and no bitterness.

M-Medium to light in body, nicely carbonated and smooth.

O-A solid witbier, very sessionable and approachable.

Appearance - Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a white 2 finger head. Decent retention, leaving small islands of microbubbles on the surface, and a ring around the edge. Spotty lacing with little stick.

Smell - Strong yeasty sourness with bright citrus tones; lemony. Lesser hints of orange.

Taste - Moderate lemon sourness and yeast funk hit upfront. Very subtle wheat and banana character once the beer warms. Sweet and bright. Touches on orange peel and slight grassy bitterness near the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light in body with lively, somewhat bitey carbonation. Goes down smooth and easy. Semi-dry finish. Maybe the best bodied witbier I've come across thus far.

Overall - Great witbier all-around. It doesn't kill me that this beer isn't on shelves in California, but it'd be a welcome addition if it were.
