BEER INFO

Brewed by:
DuClaw Brewing Company
Maryland, United States
duclaw.com

Style: American Pale Wheat Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Summer

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!

Funk brewed by DuClaw Brewing Company, with an ABV of 5.00% This brew pours out a nice deep amber color with a nice white head. The smell of Funk is rich with Blueberry ,grins sweetness. There is also some nice malts and hops in the smell of this brew. There is a lot going on in the smell of this brew. Now for the taste it bold with grains and malts with a mild Blueberry taste. The blueberry is not overpowering at all in this brew. The Blueberry is very inviting. Funk has a real super nice balance to iFunk | DuClaw Brewing Companyt. There is nothing overpowering about this brew at all. I can really get into this brew, it is nice and smooth. The mouthfeel of Fuck is bold rich smooth and refreshing. Over all I'm giving Funk a 4.5 out 5. I would buy this brew again. DuClaw Brewing Company, did a super nice job with this brew.

Funk | DuClaw Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this beer's head is three fingers thick, with secular lacing, and a translucent straw gold body.

Smells like a nice blend of the wheat and lemon with faint, non-sweet blueberry aroma.

I taste a mild, easygoing mix of the smell with a small hop bitterness accented by the blueberries.

The mouthfeel here is medium-light with fair carbonation.

I'l rate Funk | DuClaw Brewing Company with an overall 4.5. A very quenching choice for hot days.

It's back. And there are a lot of smiles out there. DuClaw recently juggled their "permanent" beer line-up by replacing Kangaroo Love (the Australian-style lager that was a long-standing staple on tap for many of us lightweights) with what was once an extremely popular seasonal, "Funk," an American Wheat. The web site says it's back by popular demand... and I'm one of those who demanded--er, I mean, asked Jim the Brewer nicely in an e-mail. [But I'm not the biggest fan... I know one person who practically danced when he found out it was back on-tap full-time. And then he brought me a growler full. Thanks JB!]

Rich, clear yellow hue, small tan head that dissipated quickly but laced the glass nicely. Smell is mostly wheat/malt with tiny bit of hops in the nose. From first taste to last, rich mouthfeel with nice balanced carbonation. Taste is wheat, biscuity malt with just enough hops to linger a bit on your tongue, but not enough for what I'd call a real hops "taste." But who cares? It tastes great. Nice balanced, yet mild flavor rendering the beer extremely (a perfect 5) drinkable. So drinkable, in fact, you have to watch out a bit. It's so smooth it goes down very easily.

Nice balance to DuClaw's offerings!!

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter glass. 5% abv

Appearance- Medium gold. Low white foamy head. Intermediate clarity.

Smell- Fresh blueberry, wheat

Taste- A dry grainy wheat malt with a quick rush of fresh blueberries. The berry flavor is sweet and compliments the wheat malt rather than over power it. Finishes with a hint of lemon citrus and light hint of coriander.

Mouthfeel- Medium-light in body with active carbonation.

Overall- I enjoyed this wheat/blueberry beer. Nice Summer offering. Unsure if it's a fruit beer or a pale wheat ale but it's both essentially. Crafted well.
