First Hefe - Off flavors
I brewed my first Hefe on 1/5 and I bottled on the 24th. I put a couple in grolsh bottles so I could check carb levels. I just popped one and it was carbed up good enough to taste so I poured a small glass. It tastes like a hefe should but then on the back end of the draw there's this lemony flavor that I definitely didn't want. Is this something that will go away with age? I thought I wasn't supposed to age a hefe very long and the fresher the better? Am I stuck with this off flavor?
