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!

Beer was on-tap, poured a pale yellow color not unlike mass produced fizzy yellow beer. Some head. Smell was absent, presumed missing. No hint of the honey that was claimed to be present. Taste was again, much closer to the fizzy yellow stuff than what I would call an American wheat. If I squinted my taste buds, I could almost imagine a hint of the honey. Beer did have good carbonation, which helped liven up the mouthfeel. I was glad when this pint was finished. I'm Not sure if the Funk kegs got lost on the way to the pub-restaurant from the brewery and were replaced en-route by the yellow fizzy stuff, but I wouldn't be surprized.

Smell has a hint of blueberry and a whole lot of cough syrup. Taste is even more medicinal.

Funk has the right name. I would have named it funky feet.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Flying Dog goblet

A: Straw/Blonde that is hazy but has lots of carbonation bubbling up.

S: It smells like old blueberry muffins from a box mix. Not much of a funk but a bit of lemon bars in there as well.

T: Standard bland wheat beer with a hint of what seems like artificial blueberry. This one will be put to better use in the form of blueberry pancakes. Sorry DuClaw, again with the miss.

M: Bubbly and effervescent.

O: Not to my palate. Tastes like standard "beer" or what I associate it as, to me. I've been meaning to make pancakes anyway, so this will do great.

Enjoyed this beer on tap at Duclaw in Bowie, MD out of a pint glass.

A: Pours an light orange hue with a frothy white head that quickly dissipates leaving no trail or lace.

S: Blueberry and malt aroma.

T: Blueberry flavor with a wheat malt background and finishes on the dry side of fruity.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation

O: Not a huge fan of these blueberry brews.
