Pulled my second sample for gravity testing. Current gravity is at 1.009 so I dropped about 2 points in gravity since last week. Currently at about 8.2% ABV which is way too high for the style. The overall character of this beer is beginning to develop though and it's quite satisfying I must say. Most of the sulphur oder is now gone and it tasted very much like a Belgian wheat. Hoegaarden without the spice comes to mind (and much thinner with way more alcohol). It's not a bad thing, just not what I was trying to accomplish. I probably used too much wheat in the recipe.
