I tapped the Blueberry Wheat today. The color is purple from the 7 lbs of blueberries, the aroma is strong clove (assuming from using WB-06), the body is light, and the flavor is clove with a hint of blueberry.  I think I might add some blueberry extract to the keg for more flavor. Will the strong clove flavor fade over time? I'm thinking that I should've used a cleaner yeast strain..oh well not bad, but definitely not great.

Yeah, when I made a blueberry wheat, I made an Am. wheat.  The style has no flavor ;) so the blueberries can shine through.

My stupid brain has to learn the hard way ;) At least I have enough berries left to make Blueberry Wine, melomel, and blueberry pies :P
