On tap in Atlanta.

Hazy light amber with a hint of purple and a durable head.

Pleasing but puckering tartness. Fruity for sure, but blueberry is not obvious.

Smells rather unappealing, as is typical for style.

O: fun but a bit challenging to drink.

First canning on this beer ever this year. 12 oz can poured into a pint glass.

Pours a pinkish hue, with a nice head and lacing.

Smells of unripened berries, lactic sour notes, sweet blueberry and funk.

Very tart taste, unripe sour berries, melded with sweetness from the berries in contrast. Some barnyard funk and sour. The blueberry isn't overstated or too much it's right on the money.

Really enjoyed this, first time having it and I went back and bought another sixer after the first can. Perfect timed release for summer, will be drinking this alot.

look: Hazy dark peach with a big fluffy head on the pour that recedes to nil.
smell: tart and sweet. Hints of berries, funk and yeast.
taste: Much like the nose. A little subdued up front but finishes with a nice tart bloom.

22oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 9.99. No bottling date but this just hit shelves last week (8/15). Served in a Barrel and Barley teku.

Pours an opaque hazy peach with a little over a finger of pale head. Those bubbles quickly fade to a meager collar, depositing only a few small specks of lace.

Smells tart with faint sour berries and some funky, earthy wheat/ hay. Simple and straightforward.

Flavor is only lightly sour, not at all puckering. Some lactic funk, vague berry skins, earthy, faint wet hay, soured grain and a hint of leather. The lack of alcohol presence makes this an easy drinking warm weather brew.

Medium feel with moderate carbonation. Finish is tart and mildly fruity with some slightly soured malt.

Despite having very little identifiable blueberry, Wandering Blues is a pretty tasty brew. It drinks more like a lightly fruited funky ale than the "blueberry sour" written on the label. That said, it is still enjoyable enough that I'll certainly have it again at some point.
