Ok here is a weird one I do not think anything is wrong so please don't think I'm asking about infection in a already "infected" beer lol. As this is my first time using this blend I was wondering about co2 odor output does this yeast give off a fruity emission or should I be afraid of it kinda like apflewein farts ? Thanks.

Btw it started out fruity now 3 days in is kinda gettin that Belgian banana like aroma.

It has a Belgian sacc strain along with the bacteria and brett. There's also sherry flor. The Belgian strain is going to do all the heavy lifting early on so you're going to get that fruity Belgian smell. Once primary fermentation ends there won't be airlock activity so no smell comes out.
