yes, 6 months later and that taste is all but gone...maybe it's a belgian yest thing or a water thing, but i've never exerienced that taste before in one of my beers, hard to describe, but definitely an off flavor...that said, just bottled a Dubbel Lite using wyeast 1214, sarted in the 60's, ramped to the 70's, and yes, same off flavor. i brewed maybe 15 beers in between with no sign of this, but none with Belgian yeast.
