Live beer does amazing things warm. Yeast clean up a lot after themselves.

Cold puts the yeast to sleep and accomplish little while dreaming.

Here's one site that explains some of the "off-flavors" that we may find in our brews:


I had the same thing in a cherry wheat that I did and after pouring out half the bottles, I found out that it would get better if I just let it rest. 2 weeks later, it was drinkable.
