Default Ok so I am a beginner

I have an american ale under my carboy belt... now I also have a weizen the Weizen is young I kegged it after two weeks in the primary.. it has been kegged for about a week or so... I drew a sample today to taste and it is rather disappointing but I figure it will age a little bit in the keg in the next two weeks and be OK the American I sampled myself finally and was very satisfied with the taste it is much better than the typical american beers I have had! Very happy with it but it has been in the keg for about 3 weeks...

I brewed a Hef for my second or third batch back in the day and I had the same reaction. My first batches tasted good right away and I expected the same for my Hef. I let it sit and chill in the keg for another week or so and the difference was amazing. I don't know what it is about wheat, but it likes to take it's time.

Glad to hear about your success.
