Notes / Commercial Description:
The traditional American Wheat Ale serves as a solid baseline, but we couldn’t be content until we tore the roof off this sucker! Funk, our Blueberry Citrus Wheat Ale, sets the rhythm with a soulful fusion of American wheat and hops, before unleashing a stunning encore with big notes of blueberry and Meyer lemon. It’s no jive, you’ll just dig it!

Not horrible as a fruited wheat beer, but overall the flavors are fairly bland and the beer as a whole is somewhat watery. Not a whole lot of aroma - weak flavors of wheat and blueberry and I'm struggling to find the lemon.

Funk is no longer what it used to be. It's now a "blueberry citrus wheat". I'm not so fond of it; I think it's a touch too bitter, and the blueberry and citrus flavors compete rather than complement. I'd now rate it at a 3.8 but I've left my old review for posterity...

This American wheat suggests a little more character in it's name than actually exists - but that's a good thing! It's a clean, fresh, lightly sweet and mildly wheat-ish ale that's quite enjoyable and refreshing. Its golden body teems with fine bubbles beneath a short head of creamy bright white foam. It's cushiony-looking head drops shortly to a creamy collar, but it does leave some minor spotty lace as it goes. The nose is quite clean; and expresses just a mild, sweetish maltiness. The body is medium and it's very fine, gently effervescent carbonation tingles the tongue before softening to leave it smooth and mildly creamy across the palate. The flavor delivers a clean, fruity, and mildly wheatish malt that's lightly sweet due to a small addition of honey. It's not too sweet, however, as it's balanced by a delicate, underlying bitterness that leaves it dry in the finish. Quite nice! A nice summer beer that has enough malt character to keep you coming back for more.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden color.

Overall: The aroma is sweet blueberry. The taste is sweet but has a strong wheat base with mild citrus, followed up with a very good blueberry flavor. This beer is natural and refreshing. It's a great summer beer.
