COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Someone call George Clinton because the Funk is about to arrive. DuClaw’s latest creation, Funk, is a blueberry citrus wheat ale that screams summer with an almost shandy-like crispness and flavor. This brew features Meyer lemons and blueberries as well as Cascade and Columbus hops. Look for this beer on shelves starting next Friday.

Dogbrick (10409) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2015
This beer pours a cloudy amber color with a medium of-white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of berries, citrus and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of mildly tart berries, pithy citrus and doughy malt. The finish is fruity with a blueberry aftertaste. Decent overall.

12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter. The beer is a hazy yellow color with a white head of foam. The aroma has citrusy fruits and some straw. Sweet and citrusy taste. A touch of tartness. Light in body and medium carbonation.

A decent fruity wheat beer. The beer poured a cloudy dark yellow color with a small white head. The head dissipated rather quickly and left no lacing whatsoever. The nose was bright and fruity with notes of blueberry, yeast, light bread and cloves. The flavors were sweet and fruity with plenty of blueberries and slight hints of banana, wheat and cloves.

Very light and tasty. Berry beers never seem to work well in my opinion, but this one is nice. Definitely a "chick beer," but fine in its own right. Certainly not heavy on the hops but the bread malt and the slight sweetness and wheat go well with the definite blueberry taste and lemon zest. Not as sweet as I expected, and very refreshing. The distributor brought various DuClaw beers into my restaurant recently, and it didn’t take long for us to agree that we should add The Funk to our beer list. Of course the name is stupid an irrelevant, but it is a nice beer.

Goldene Farbe, weisser Schaum der sich schnell verzieht Honignase mit leichtem Blueberry Hopfen kommt im gaumen fein zum Vorschein, bluerry ist klar zu schmecken begleitet von einer Honignote Ok-Bier, tolle Abwechslung, nichts überragendes

Voodoo (498) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Pours a honey tone with a white head which is gone in an instant.....aroma of a flat kind of blueberry, touch of honey......taste is different, like thin honey with a blueberry taste in the end and a touch of bitterness to keep it honest. Near cloyingly sweet, wouldn’t mind to see it drop a few more points on the final gravity, almost a diabetic kind of experience.

Aweful taste. Was expecting something good like most of their brews, all I could taste was basically dirt. Horrid.

Recommended by a work friend, and had been seeing that damn strange logo everywhere I go. Bottle to teku, fizzy and quickly-rising head atop a bright straw-orange. Even before I put my nose to it, I could smell it radiating that blueberry from afar. Candy-like sugar qualities over a slightly-bready and honeylike base. Flavor is much less potent, little sweetness, almost aspartame-like, seemingly watered down with seltzer water. Strange. Nose is misleading.
