so my girlfriend just bought back a beer from Edmonton, Dominus Vobiscum Lupulus we opened it up and it smelt funky, skunky and just strange. this was from 2010 as well. the taste was not hugely unpleasant but just seemingly not right. some apple and some wheat characters but other than that it is really just an astringent bitterness with a lingering horse blanket finish. the carbonation when opened was extreme also and an unusual head formed.. strange. just curious to know what you guys think if this beer may have be infected or off, and some more opinions on signs as to whether its possible to spot an infection before opening which im not sure there is and if there are maybe 3 crucial signs or something along those lines, in telling whether the beer is infected or off.
