I'm on my second week of conditioning right now, Saturday will mark 2 full weeks exactly. Although I plan on cracking one open tonight to see how much the flavor has advanced.
I put one in the fridge last weekend and cracked it open on Tuesday night. Was pretty damn good. Had a nice flavor and was carbonated, but didn't have much head at all. Of course I poured very slowly (to avoid glugging and stirring up the sediment at the bottom) and my fridge is VERY cold.
I may put another one in the fridge this weekend to try early next week.
Here's a pic of the one from Tuesday:
