For the first four weeks the beer had this odd "fruitiness" or maybe "solvent" as NoLifeLeft describes. During the fermentation the air temperature in the cabinet we used got up to 85° at times. The primary stopped bubbling after like four days.
I tried a couple tuesday and that off flavor is gone. It's smooth and a lot more balanced, the offness overpowered the body before. Hopefully all your batch needs is a few weeks in the bottle.
