it smelled sour. other people have said same thing (again BMC or non-drinkers). it tated kinda....well biting, perhaps sharp.
the heffeweizen I got at the store (which is why I made the weizen bier) did not taste at all like the one I made. I mean not even remotely close. the one at the store tasted really smooth, maybe subtle.
I don't think I really boiled these first batches well. I think of this form the comment that I could have used no-boil extracts...there were not. BUT I kinda really simmered these instead (being my first batches).
the last batch I did was the honey weizen and that tated (on bottling day) really grat. in fact I think it's my bext so far.
could this tate be coming from not boiling Vigorously enough?
I know it's hard to describe in text and my limited BMC pallate doesn't help
