If you ask if I like Wheat Ales then I will say sometimes, but if you ask if I like Pale Wheat Ales then I will say most likely. This somewhat seemingly new hybrid has become somewhat of a favorite style for me, and that has led me to try from DuClaw Brewing and their Funk Blueberry Citrus Wheat. This Pale Wheat Ale comes in at a 5% ABV and 16 IBU, so not too hoppy really. Let’s see how it compares.
The traditional American Wheat Ale serves as a solid baseline, but we couldn’t be content until we tore the roof off this sucker! Funk, our Blueberry Citrus Wheat Ale, sets the rhythm with a soulful fusion of American wheat and hops, before unleashing a stunning encore with big notes of blueberry and Meyer lemon. It’s no jive, you’ll just dig it!
