Bout 4-5 months ago I brewed a wheat fermented with wlp001. After primary i dumped 4 pounds of raspberries and the peel of 2 lemons Long story short it was not well received. Now it's clearly infected. What should I do any advise?
I have a nice pipeline so if it's a loss it not a big deal.

a. Keg/bottle and drink it fast
b. Leave it until it drops and call it a sour beer, it may turn out great
c. dump it

I'd try a or b if I were you.

Lacto.

How does it taste/smell now? I make lots of sour beers, and I love them. They usually taste pretty good once they start souring, and really good a few months after that.

I'm an extremely quick dumper. Anything less than awesome becomes fertilizer. Don't tell me it might be awesome someday: I might be dead by then. Don't get me started Revvy.

If you give it a try and are disgusted in any way, dump and don't look back.
