No, I put them in a dark closet to age for a couple months before choking them down.

I dumped about 3 gallons of belgian golden yesterday as a matter of fact..... Been sipping on it and passing it out to others to drink - kept hoping it would get better.... it was ok, did not really care for it as I am not much of a belgian fan in the first place. I have no problem dumping beer if it is not good, or if I simply don't enjoy drinking it. The second I have a better beer ready to put in a keg - a mediocre/bad beer's days are numbered.

Cigar City that makes one. It's a nice summer beer. Really light and refreshing.

Well I technically have not dumped one but I brewed a porter a few months back that I screwed something up on and it tasted like pennies. My buddy who would probably drink fermented gasoline thought it tasted fine so I gave him the remaining 47 bottles of the batch. Sucked loosing the batch but at least a friend enjoyed it.

I have a brown porter in bottles now that needs to be dumped. My utility company suddenly started using so much chlorine my tap water smells like a pool. I wasn't expecting it and ended up with a completely phenolic batch. I now have a nice filter setup that produces water with no smell or flavor at all, so I hopefully won't have any more bad batches.
