Default Did I sour or ruin my beer?

I'm not sure if this is normal or if I just ruined my batch of beer. What do you all think?imageuploadedbyhome-brew1399570575.843714.jpg imageuploadedbyhome-brew1399570601.313392.jpg

What should I do at this point? Dump, or bottle and let it sit longer?

Does look a bit suspicious. How does it smell? Did you taste it?

The smell is slightly sweet, with an apple aroma. Haven't tasted it yet. Do I'm guessing that it's still ok and I should just bottle it and store it

Take a sample and see how it tastes. How long has it been in primary?

I'll do that after I get home from work. It's been in primary for 2 weeks and it's been it's secondary for another 2 weeks.
