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.

Strong blueberry aroma. Hazy yellow appearance. Flavor has blueberries in the forefront. Slight citrus note on the backend. Mouthfeel is medium light with medium carbonation. Overall it's a decent fruit beer. A little too much blueberry though. It overshadows the other components of the beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle, from Bottle Revolution RDU, Packaged 03/22/16. ok aroma, sweet fruity. little dance with blueberry and lemon, golden orange color, not much head or lace. bitter sweet flavor. light body, thin smooth creamy mouthfeel, dry sweet finish. it’s ok, guess i went in with different expectations with a name like funk, but nothing to excite me. aroma is best part, IMO. nice fruit. taste doesn’t offer same dimensions

ROGUE (2182) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - JUL 27, 2016
On tap at SLL tasting. Pours a clear golden with a white lacing for a head. Smells of citrus and grassy malts with juicy and fresh berries throughout. Tastes of grassy malts with lemon citrus and lemon grass flavorings and a slight banana. Slight berry tartness in the finish. Medium body with stinging carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

NikkTwist (2675) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2016 Draft at The Irish Pol. Hazy amber pour. Lots of egg-shell foam. Some mild blueberry syrup in the nose. Fairly full body with toasted wheat malts and enough hop bite to mute the sweetness. Balanced but pretty sure no actually blueberries were hurt in the manufacturing of this brew.

BenL8 (60) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 30, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2016 Weird. Some blueberry aroma, less in the flavour. Aroma is okay, flavour is artificial and quite boring. Disappointing.

rondphoto (3988) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUN 22, 2016
bottle @ Chief Market / Lima OH --- Clear light amber, smooth white head, globs of lace. Taste is wheat. Ad malt with light blueberry and lemon. Medium carbonation in the swallow, mild hops to finish. This one is light and understated for me. The fizz gives it energy, otherwise it’s a light hot weather brew. Wouldn’t repeat.

Pretty solid fruit! Plain golden pour w/ a nice & subtle blueberry aroma. The taste is mildly fruity & rather drinkable. Decent!

chinchill (4209) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 23, 2016
12 oz bottle into a lager glass. 18 March 2016 packaging date. Light body with medium+ carbonation and a dry finish. Aroma: earthy hops, lemon, blueberry puree and wheat. Flavor: a well balanced mix of blueberries, grains and hops, with the blueberry readily detectable but conservatively added, allowing the hops and grains to dominate. Some lemon in the finish. Overall: not funky bur rather clean and refreshing.

HighlanderOne (1223) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Poured from bottle. Nice blueberry muffin. Appearance is gold with a bit of head. Tasting dry wheat, blueberry, citrus hops, blueberry syrup in aftertaste. Palate is slightly dry and balanced. Overall, I’m usually disappointed when it comes to this style, but this is quite nice.

shrubber85 (10590) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Bottle. Blueberry syrup and light malt aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Mildly sweet blueberry, light toffee malt, and very lightly bitter straw flavor. Body on the light side. A basic fruit beer - no off flavors but otherwise pretty boring.
