Default Off flavor on the finish??

I just cracked the bottle on my first batch. brewed on 12-31 Its a fat tire clone that I left in the primary for 2 weeks. bottled on 1-14. At first I get a good flavor, but the aftertaste is off. A bit sour and musty. Its not terrible. Its just not right. Any thoughts jump out??

A lot of folks here leave in primary for 3 or more weeks and bottle condition for 2 or more. I'd say give it time to mellow and condition more. Try one in another week and see how it is.

Sounds like the off flavor I got on my first brew. The longer it sat in the bottles- the worse the flavors got. It was a harsh ammonia like taste that went into my sinus. This was done last August. I'm pretty sure it was due to fermenting at high temp. I still have a few left- I think I'll try one tonight.

At two weeks it's likely just too early to drink. I've found that at 5 weeks, my beers are very good and at 8 weeks they're awesome. Just give it some more time.

Pitched at mid 70's and fermented in the 70's.

Or even at 70 degrees, for some yeast strains.

"Musty" sounds like oxidation.
