My interpretation:

4.5lbs Pale 2 row
4lbs flaked wheat
1.5 lbs white wheat malt

Fruity hops low AA maybe something like a Sazz

American wheat yeast or S-05

You can add some blueberry to the mash for a little extra and the rest in secondary.

I would say just brew a solid base american wheat, and add rack the beer on top of the mushed up blueberry in secondary.

I'm doing one with 3lbs blueberry.

How did this turn out?

I'm also looking for a blueberry beer of sorts.

I have a Blueberry wheat crash cooling now.

5lbs 2-row Pale
5lbs White Wheat
2lbs Flaked Wheat

.6oz Magnum @ 60

US-05

2oz Blueberry Extract @ kegging

Last batch went so fast, I had to turn around and brew another right behind it.

Funny, cherry extract tastes like cough syrup, but blueberry extract tastes like...blueberries.

Not so good. Didnt use enough blueberries. It tastes like a tart wheat, not blueberry. The fruit didnt change the color a bit.

I did one... and I used 12 LBS frozen costco blue berries. its a gorgeous blood red color. but the flavor did not make it through at all (it fermented all the sugar out!)! i would chemically treat it at the end of the primary(once fermentation is done), then use blueberries in the secondary!

The flavor has to be the hardest part for blueberry ales. I tried doing a Wild Blue clone and failed miserably. I ended up using some blueberry extract along with some lactose to bring back some of the character I was looking for. To be honest, with the amount of blueberries I put in there, it actually came out to be like a beer/wine hybrid. It's carbing in the keg right now and will sit there for some time. Hopefully in a few weeks it will be better than it is now...

similar to me, thats why im gonna sorbate and sulfite it next time... so it doesnt ferment the blueberries!

As much as you would like to use real blueberries your best route is to use an alcohol based extract. About 7-8 years ago I attempted a blueberry ale and the flavor fermented all out. I recently made a couple different versions of strawberry wheat ales and it takes either a ton of fruit which costs a ton of cash or you need some extract.

If you use a half pound of blueberries and some extract you can still say it is made with real blueberries.
