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.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. Hazy yellow gold pour with a thin white head. Odd blueberry and wheat nose. Weird lingering blueberry and citrus pith taste. Limp on the tongue. Not very good as a fruit beer or wheat beer.

hfmejias (938) - Dover, Delaware, USA - SEP 13, 2014
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, yellow, small white head, spotty lacing on the shaker. Aroma of wheat and blueberries, also some citrus fruit. Taste is consistent, grain and fruit. No bad, quite refreshing, tastes pretty well and is very easy to drink.

MadRobin (2293) - Silver Spring, USA - SEP 6, 2014
On tap 5 oz. sample at DuClaw in Bowie, MD. Clear, yellow-gold with an off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of blueberry syrup, wheat and hand soap. First, a blueberry ale should make you think of fresh blueberries, not IHOP. Second, beer should not remind you of hand soap--specifically in this case, unscented Kiss My Face hand soap. Although it's unscented, it has a mild aroma that is pleasant enough in a hand soap, but totally inappropriate in a beer. The taste begins with that same hand cleaner, followed by blueberry syrup and wheat flavors. Medium body and medium/low carbonization. Dispute its faults, this beer had promising elements. At moments it came across as a wheat ale where the fruit element was blueberry rather than orange or lemon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

If its a fruit beer, I want to taste the fruit. Not sweet which is good, but could use more fruit

hopscotch (10003) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Draft... Clear yellow pour with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. The nose is a blend of blueberries, “unscented” soap and wheat. Light to medium-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is of textured and spicy grains with a lightly soapy character. Crisp, blueberry finish. Not bad, but not so good either.

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 15, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville, opened 5/30/14. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a thin white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of wheat, blueberry, bright lemon finish. The taste is wheat, blueberry, lemon and mild spice in the finish. Thin bodied, moderate carbonation.
