So I kegged two beers and then put the wrong label on them after kegging the second beer.
The first is a Saison and the second is a Porter. The Porter was supposed to sit out an extra two weeks to age a bit longer (needed it). I thought I put the Saison in the keezer, but after tapping it I realized I screwed up my labels! DOH!

Question is this... the Porter has been cold for over a week. Can I still take it out and let it warm up to let it finish or have a stressed the yeast out too much?

It taste a tad bit grassy and it's a bit hot. Both characteristics should go away with a bit more aging.

What do we -the community- think?

You can take it out without any issues. The yeast will do their thing once warmed up again.
