Now let me start off saying i used dry yeast so I know I won't get all those banana and clove flavors but brew taste like soy sauce a little bit. Primary for two weeks secondary for two weeks and bottle now for about two weeks. I am hoping the flavor will subside but I'm not sure what went wrong the
Temp wasn't to high it was about 60-65 most of the time. Some one mentioned autosylis but it wasn't on the patty long enough....help - it was the brewers best dunkelwizen kit

Are you sure it was a Dunkelweizen and not their Beef Pot Roast extract kit?

Specifically what was the yeast?

Autolysis is something people fear but rarely actually happens in beer. Mirmite, burnt rubber, and soy sauce are all flavors associated with autolysis, so it may have happened to you.

What happens is the yeast aren't able to build thick, strong cell walls. So when they die, instead of just settling to the bottom of the fermentor, they rupture.

Insufficient oxygen, insufficient nutrients, and temperature extremes can all contribute to it.

You said it was a kit. Was it an extract kit? If so, my first guess would be insufficient FAN.

I'm not sure what caused it . I thought is tasted good when I was bottling the beer & I thought I practiced good sanitation and control of temp during fermentation but it beats me maybe Ina few weeks it will be drinkable

After 4 weeks in bottle it's starting to lose a little of that soy sauce flavor. it's a little high on the carbonation as of now .I want o put it in the fridge to stop more carbonation but will that stop the aging process that might help rid those off flavors ??

Do NOT put it in the fridge.

Chill a bottle a week until it tastes good.
