Belgians ferment really nasty. First one I made smelled like someone puked in it. I almost dumped it but asked on here and all said it was normal. The beer turned out great in the end. Glad I waited!

Please tell us you are not racking it, looks like an auto siphon in some of those pics.

Just a note, mine looked like that well after fermentation was complete.

You can rack from underneath a belgian krausen that doesn't drop. Sometimes these yeasts can stick around for a month without dropping.
