Yes! If you are making a skunky Corona or Heineken clone!
(Or if you just keep them our of sunlight).
Recently I took a gravity reading of a Belgian Wit. I set the hydrometer stand on the counter to work out the residual carbonation, and it was probably there for less than 20 minutes. I took a whiff, as I was going to decide whether or not to grab a quick taste from the sample, and was greeted with a very noticeable skunky aroma. It doesn't take long.
