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!

Incredible unrated beer! This beer is perfect for being in the Florida sun in any outdoor activity. Incredibly drinkable as in you may find yourself having more.. way more than you anticipated like the entire 6 pack

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!

My favorite but not readily available. Dogfish Head Nam is a close runnerup

I'm in love with this beer, which is perfect to drink in the hot, humid temperature of the South.
Cigar City continually impresses me and is quickly becoming one of my favorite breweries in the S.E.
L: golden
S: nice smell
T: Heaven
F: clean and crisp, very refreshing
O: it's like a better version of Allagash White
