If you sample it during the boil, yes.

There is no reason that should happen. Where/how did you hear this?

Possible, but not likely. Also, taste buds do grow back. I've run across many IPAs that trashed my palette for the day.

Well, maybe that explains all the BMC drinkers out there.

If wort killed your taste buds, I imagine beer would be 10x worse. The only main difference (not counting the esters and whatnot) is your exchanging maltose for alcohol and carbon dioxide. I imagine the alcohol and carbon dioxide would be more harmful to your taste buds than the maltose would be.

+1 on this eplanation, ANY food alters your tastebuds. Thats why if you do a taste test(a true scientific one) they are gonna have you eat a cracker, sample eat a cracker, then sample the competition. Its widely know that oyster crackers are one of the best. Something about the reset your tastebuds. I dont know the science behind it though. i think wine drinkers do this.
