COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’re putting some Funk all up in this American wheat beer. If you’ve been jonesin’ for a groovy mix of wheat and barley with a hint of sweet, sweet honey, then we’ve got something you can groove on. So don’t be a jive turkey, take a sip and enjoy your trip!

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 17, 2009
Tap at Arundel Mills in Mar 2008: Clear bright golden pour has a thin, wispy white head. Faint aroma of malted wheat and grain, but almost nonexistant. Body starts with a finely dissolved carbonation and mild sweetness with a touch of light fruity notes and citrusy hops. Finishes semi-dry and mildly bitter with some earthy citrus notes. Needs more balance.

Draft @ Bel Air location. I’m not a big fan of wheat beers, but this was not bad. A slight citrus hop note cut through an otherwise common wheat beer combination of banana and cloves. Very drinkable light palate.

Parrothead (292) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Brought home a growler from the Belair location. This is a nice beer - reminds me of some of the Canadian ales from Labatts, or even maybe a Kolsch. Obviuosly part of the DuClaws line-up for those who don’t "like" beer. A wheat ale? OK, you fooled me, but still a nice refreshing quaffer. I always wanted to use that word.

Duclaw’s Funk Is okay but is nothing that really stands out. I was a little disappointed when I tried it.

newbrewguy (145) - Mechanicsville, Maryland, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Draft, poured a light golden color with a white frothy head. pretty light and almost resembled a lager more than and a wheat beer. I’d hoped for more. This was probably the weakest of all the DuClaw beers I tried.

jcwattsrugger (11076) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2008
on tap-pours a dissipating white head and yellow color. Aroma is sweet grain. Taste is sweet grain/wheat/light malt, spicy hops, crisp. OK carbonation. Solid light body.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2007
On Draft at Fell’s Point. Poured a somewhat clear gold color with a white head. Taste is standard wheat beer with some cloves and some citrus in it. I like the name, but this one wasn’t "Funk". I expected more.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - DEC 24, 2007
On tap at Bowie. Typical American wheat beer. Poured out a hazy light golden color, with a sticky white head. Aromas are bananas, some cloves, some citrus peel. Flavors are unimpressive, typical wheat beer. Nothing special here. From notes.

Draft at Fell’s Point. Very light taste, wheat is noticeable. There isn’t much to it.
