Cigar City Brewing Florida Cracker Belgian-style White Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Cigar City Brewing Florida Cracker Belgian-style White Ale.
From the Cigar City Brewing website: “Pours cloudy straw in color with moderate notes of orange peel, coriander and hints of vanilla. Flavor has upfront citrus with coriander notes that lead into lemon/lime like notes and finishes with citrus and flowers. Incredibly refreshing and drinkable.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a hazy pale yellow with a slight white head and sparse lacing.
Aroma: Citrus, coriander, banana, wheat, vanilla, bready malt and Belgian yeast.
Taste: Citrus, sweet malts, coriander, bready malts, banana, Belgian yeast and vanilla.
Overall: Refreshing and fantastic, Cigar City Brewing Florida Cracker Belgian-style White Ale is yet another example of why Cigar City Brewing is one of the best breweries around (in my opinion). At 5% ABV this sessionable offering is something I wish I could get my hands on not only for summer, but for year-round drinking. LetsPour.com sells this one (and others from Cigar City Brewing), but you’ll pay a premium for it. Is it worth it? I’d say “yes”.
