Bavarian Hefeweizen Extract Kit

Product Review (submitted on February 19, 2014):
This batch was my first. The beer turned out great fermented fast, and tasted alot like Hofbrau Hefeweizen. I used danstar munich yeast, and the priming sugar that came with the kit. During the bottling stage i tasted my beer after 4 days, the carb was okay but the taste was great, I tried another at 5 days and the carb/taste was amazing, at the 6 and 7 day the beer started to lose its flavor and only a very small hint of banana could be noticed. Im not sure what I did wrong but I would not carb that long again. I am now on my second batch using the white labs wlp300 yeast and now my entire hallway smells like banana bread bread and fermentation is going nuts. Hopefully a one week carbonation will not dry out this next batch but I will test it once a day after 3 before throwing it in the fridge. Any tips on why my beer started to get lighter in taste when carbonating some tips are more than welcome.
