I made a hefeweizen from a kit. Extract with specialty grains. WLP300 yeast. 2 weeks in the fermenter. 3 weeks in bottles before starting to drink it. I've now had a few bottles over the past 3 weeks or so.
I tasted a little at bottling time and the beer had a nice, distinct banana aroma and taste and also some clove. Now that it has been bottled, these have both faded, which disappoints me.
What happened and what can I do to avoid this next time?
(The beer is also clear, rather than cloudy, which surprises me, but I can live with that.)
