Ten bucks that's infected or mold. Probably will taste 'ok.'

I live in the tropics and once in a rare while I get that on a beer in the primary. Especially when I leave the carboy hood on instead on switching to a stopper. It is some wild yeast or bacteria or mold. Rack it off now and things should be OK. I have found if I get to it and then chill the beer it is ok. If its sits too long, some other process starts and makes sour beer. Not in a good way. Good luck and def chill and taste the beer before you toss it.

Bottled the beer tonight and tasted it. It had no funky smell or flavor, and didn't taste or smell like vinegar. I took a taste and it tasted like flat room temperature beer haha, but very flavorful of malts with a less intense hoppy flavor. So I added the priming sugar, bottled it, and I'm hoping that in two weeks I have some drinkable beer. Thanks for all of your help and advice!
