I just brewed my first all grain batch and didn't clean out the mlt until the next day. Smelled sour and i assumed something like lacto got to work on the warm grain. Probably not a good idea because I likely need to thoroughly sanitize my mlt now in order to keep this from affecting my next mash. Hopefully your hefe didn't smell like this.
Otherwise, young beers might smell odd with no actual problems, so the best, and only remedy for your concerns is to wait a few weeks and see how it smells then.
