It tastes great.

Real bold and kinda strong, but really good. I gave a 12oz to my friend who is a beer expert at his market and he loved it. He wanted to buy some off me.

So my hefe has been in the bottle for two weeks so I decided to throw one in the fridge to see how green weizen tastes when I noticed a ring around the bottle. Hoping it's bottle krauzen.



I got a little worried that I infected it at bottling time. I opened it and it smelled fine. I poured it in a glass and oh my.



I did notice a film floating in the bottle but I poured it and it was fine.
I am ecstatic. It tastes amazing. Maybe so slightly sour, maybe green taste, but real smooth.

Carbonation is nice, too. Bubles were coming out of suspension the whole time.

I'm submitting this to a Homebrew contest this month, what the hell?

Labels are done and will be posted when I get around to printing them.

Thanks for all the positive feedback. It means a lot.

Your beer looks great and the label is terrific.

Those look like LPs in the background. Nice collection if so. Are they?

Thanks billtzk.
Yeah, I have a couple thousand. It's never enough, though. Been collecting my whole life and even have my original Sesame Street records. Child of the seventies.

I grew up collecting as well. Between my brother and I, I think we have 6k plus and counting. Too bad I don't have the room for even a small fraction of what I'd like to keep around.

Thanks. I really appreciate it. I was a little worried going into graphic design since the market is saturated, but it seems promising with all the positive feedback I've been getting.

Besides, I may not have started brewing if it wasn't for my urge to create the beer I was making labels for. hehehe

I'm not getting my hopes up for the comp, but it seems like a good idea to get out there and participate in the brewing community.
