Default Sludge on Fruit Beer

I have a batch of black/blueberry wheat beer fermenting and ready to be bottled. However, there is a sludge on top of the beer. I broke through it to measure the SG and taste it and it tastes fine. Has anyone else ran into this? Do I remove it prior to bottling?

Yup. Happens just about every time I do a fruit beer. Just rack out from under it into your bottling bucket. It'll be fine.

Great. I was planning to do just that, but wanted to make sure it wouldn't kill me.
