FUNK Blueberry Citrus Wheat

DuClaw FUNK Blueberry Citrus Wheat? Yeah sure! FUNK in this case seems to NOT refer to any souring additions to the beer. Rather, a story on the side let you know this is a wheat ale with a funky "soulful fusion" of blueberries and meyer lemons. 5% alcohol.

Gotta work for any aroma, faint blueberry and light citrus. Blueberry flavors take at least half a dozen sips to come to the forefront and then still never get that big, just a touch of flavor. However, a giant sharp citrus lemon adds a huge amount of flavor and bitterness.

Tangy, wheaty. I was really hoping for bigger blueberry or other sweet balance, but that never happened. Kinda meh!
