is it in every bottle or just a few?I tried a couple of bottles of my beer lately and I am sorry to say that it has definately gone south recently. Has a vinegar like taste to it. I am really sorry for the way this beer has turned out. Hopefully future attempts will show that i am improving.
I'll taste it first. It may appeal, or may be manky.
If you want to drink the QWB (QuadrupelWeizenBock), it has come good, and was tasting well at Sydney last weekend. Served chill or warm, it was a treat. Whoever got my large bottle of it at Ashbury Scout Hall, I'd like the bottle back and some feedback on the style I should enter a comp with it. Maybe an Imperial Weissbier?
Anyway, the point is, that the beer is good now. Why wait. I don't like many aged wheat beers, but I'll be happy to brew a good keeping beer, with any ingredients. I must be due for an annual tasting of the Old ale. I think it's 5 yrs old and at 13%+, may still have some life in it yet, especially if the samples are promising.
