I've always heard and read that homebrews get better with time, but I've never had the patience to do it. I've usually finished a batch before it's hit it's 4th or 5th week after bottling. Last summer I made 3 beers, a blonde ale, strong ale, and a raspberry wheat. They all tasted good after my normal bottle conditioning time, however then I went in deployment for a few months (submariner) and I recently returned and tried the beers and OH MAN! They are so good! I finally believe that patience makes a noticeably and excellent taste in the beer!

I'm sure most of you already knew it, but for those of you that are t believers yet, it's true!
