Default Screw it, Im tasting one!

So I brewed a weihenstephaner hefe clone that I let sit in primary for about 4 weeks. I bottled the beer last thursday. This weekend I am going to my hometown and wanted to take some with me to share my new hobby (first batch). I put two to cool after 5 days of conditioning which I know is too short, but I just have to try one! I ll probably try one at around 6:00 pm. I hope its carbed some, but if not, its just one beer.

if you're going to share it, you need to taste the batch.

Brew more and the waiting gets easier.

Even if it's flat it'll be great because you brewed it!

I do the same thing. 5 days conditioning- 1 day bottle- Breakwater Pale Ale- AMAZING
Same for the Belgium I made. Well same for everything. They usually get a taste test early on to see if I hit the spot or not

Wow! Tasted it, and it has great carbonation! It was really good! A bit sweeter than expected (a tiny bit, and not necessarily a bad thing). I don't know if thats what people call extract twang but I didn't mind it at all (it might've helped even, maybe?). Carbonation was really good though. Anyway, I am still going to leave the rest conditioning at room temp for a bit to see what it does to the flavor. Maybe the sweetness will tone back a bit. Crazy quick carbonation though.

I'm in the same boat but my wife talked me down from the cliff. We are waiting for Sunday afternoon.

Question: How does it the taste compared to any samples before bottling? I wasn't too impressed with my samples but know from the forums that samples are not always representative of the finished beer so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
