2kg of frozen blueberries added for 4 days after 4 days of fermentation gave a beautiful color, but not a sugary taste of blueberries. Extrat of a syrup could be more effective to get a candy blueberrie taste.
Also, the Hallertau Tradition, beside being really interresting, overpowers the bluberries a little bit.

All in all, this is an easy sipper without much of an after taste.
