Has anyone out there ever made a sparkling beer? I was thinking about try into make a sparkling wheat beer. I didn't know if anyone had a recipe.

It's a beer fermented with champagne yeast, with a very tart, dry taste. Here is an article I was reading about them. http://dlvr.it/2X6yWj

Champagne yeast doesn't ferment malt sugars very well, if at all, so you don't end up with a dry beer you end up with a malty sweet beer. That beer is a gimmick and they accomplish the drier taste by over-carbonating it.
