Watermelon Funk is an American Wild Ale brewed by 21st Amendment Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a snifter from a 12 oz. can.

Appearance

The ale pours a somewhat cloudy orange with an inch-thick cap of fizzy white foam that bubbles away rapidly.

Aroma

A faint aroma delivers a scent of watermelon with a touch of sour yeast.

Flavor

The palate begins with a cracker wheat body, spiced with coriander and pepper. Transitions to a mild note of funk, and tart notes of green apple, lemon and watermelon juice. A relatively high ABV is well hidden.

Mouthfeel

A fizzy feel has a medium-light body with prickly carbonation.

Overall

Unfortunately, this brew doesn’t bring the “funk” expected for the style and instead plays it safe with a brew crafted to appease the masses. But while its use of lactobacillus is minimal, the beer still drinks easily and makes for a nice refresher on a hot afternoon.
