That might be the case...I know I've done it before. I couldn't wait until tomorrow so I kegged the blueberry wheat this evening. I'll post a picture of my pint whenever carbonation sets in. Probably about a week to a week and a half.

I was one who sampled it at the party. I really doesn't taste a bit like beer It reminded me a lot flavor wise of say a flavored water or something like that. Very faint fruit taste and not much else. No hops, no malt. It was actually pretty refreshing though. I wouldn't have realized I was drinking anything alcoholic if I hadn't already known. I think the wives will enjoy it.

No picture, but I will update the group. The blueberry wheat has actually been quite the crowd pleaser. 1 oz of Northern Brewer hops matched with 3 lbs of blueberry puree makes this a well-balanced wheat beer. Let me know if you want the (extract) recipe.

Now that I think about it Tlylebrew, I never did ask what your wheat recipe was, in particular, how many ounces or hops you were using. If you didn't use enough bittering hops to balance out the sweetness of the fruit you could definitely end up with a wine cooler. Although, it's not bad to have this on hand for the ladies. Sounds like it doesn't have a strong alcohol taste but I bet it's stronger than any wine cooler they've ever had

I would say it has a bit of a kick, but I am definately used to drinking higher gravity brews, so this one is a sipper for me. I do think a bit more hops would of benefited this beer, and less fruit.
