Default What would cause a beer to taste like feet?

I enjoy the beer, but it tastes like feet. It is a simple amber and all the equip used on it was used before this batch and after with no ill tasting effects. I am puzzled the only thing that was different was that it used gelatin to clean it up which worked great but it has a nice taste of an amber with a foot in the glass.

I think the more important question is, what would cause you to enjoy it..

Maybe you're tasting vinegar? I've noticed vinegar smells a lot like feet. But I couldn't really say without smelling/tasting it myself.

I have a pretty good idea what vinegar tastes like and it is not this. This is like funky like lick between the toes feet and not like vinegar. I think it would go well with some really funky soft cheese, sadly tho I just finished the last bottle as we only found 2 of them yesterday and I had one then and one tonight.

I was thinking like apple cider vinegar if that makes any difference.

Perhaps some form of Brett?
