It's been nearly four months since I had COVID, and my sense of smell was pretty much gone for the first three months. Now I can smell most things if I sniff hard enough, but I can only get a faint whiff of hops, even from a dry-hopped APA. I have a bohemian pils on tap that my wife really likes but I can't appreciate.
At the beginning, I couldn't handle anything that was bitter or dry. Same thing with spicy (hot) foods. I think the overall balance was just off, since I wasn't getting any aroma input to balance things out. For the first month, I drank cider instead of beer. After that, I made a blonde and a weizen so that I could enjoy a little malt sweetness without getting blown away by the bitterness or dryness. I also made a bohemian pils in hopes that I'd be ready to handle it by the time my nose came around, but I'm still not able to appreciate it.
I'm fermenting another weizen now, and I can actually smell something coming out of the airlock, so I'm looking forward to trying that.
Hang in there!
