Kindof an odd question...you'll be diluting everything: the malt flavor, the hops flavor (probably not a big component of this beer), the blueberry flavor, the ABV, the general beer character.
What was the OG of this beer? How much blueberry?
Unless this was a high OG beer with a huge amount of fruit, I can't imagine it being able to stand that level of dilusion.
