Default WLP 051 question

I have a 1.5L starter of WLP 051 for a Zombie Dust clone that I just decanted. The starter smells fruity and sharp, almost vinegary. The yeast was harvested from bottles of a blueberry wheat which tasted fine.

Can anyone tell me if this is natural odor for the 051 and if it is OK to use. Id hate to kill a batch with around 9 oz of citra.

How does the starter wort taste? Is the sharp smell more vinegary or acidic or sulfur?

Tastes OK and the smell seems to have gone down since I decanted a couple of hours ago. Im going to pitch it.

I've had some weird aromas when harvesting yeast. Beer turned out great! You'll be fine.
