Hmmm....now that is interesting. Like I said it only happened to me once, and I attributed it to pitching too warm. Clove sure sounds like a ester to me, but maybe it could have been something to do with a batch? My notes show that it subsided after some time....maybe yours will too....

Best,

TF

"Clove" isn't an ester- it's a "phenol". That's very common when Belgian yeast are used as it's a character of those strains, and it's also common when chlorinated water is used (it forms chlorophenols). Another cause of "clove" is infection.
