Beer Wednesday – DuClaw Funk
Happy Beer Wednesday!
This week, the vegan beer I’m happy to review is Funk blueberry citrus wheat.
This wheat beer is a beautiful golden color, and the nose is filed with blueberry.
If you like fruit in your beer, you’ll be hard pressed to find a more flavorful, sweet, clean-tasting very than this one.
Unfortunately, all prior evidence to the contrary, I don’t like fruit in my beer.
The overall flavor of this very was far too sweet for my palate. I thought the blueberry totally overpowered any citrus that may have been there. The wheat was completely nonexistent compared to the fruit flavors.
I generally really like DuClaw’s beers, and to be perfectly honest, I really wanted to like this beer, but I just couldn’t get over the incredible volume of fruit in the beer. I wanted a bite of citrus or hops in here, but it just wasn’t there. Like I said, of your choice of vegan beer is a fruity, sweet, overall tasty beer, then this is going to be just right. For me, not so much.
This very is a 3/6 on my six-pack scale, mostly for a lack of balance. Too bad…
