Default Infection?

I've had this Belgian golden in a primary for about 7 weeks. I see these little clusters of bubbles on the surface. Does this look like an infection? There is a bit of light reflection on the bottom left. Thanks!

The picture is pretty difficult to see clearly but I don't see anything to be alarmed about. After 7 weeks, if something nasty was growing it would more than likely be ready to jump out at you. Give it a taste.

Yes, it's an infection, and a horrible one at that! It's dangerous to your health, and should get rid of it immediately. However, me being such a nice guy, I'll do the noble deed for you and dispose of the beer in the appropriate manner, just let me know where to meet you.
