Just really want to know if I will taste a "mold" tainted beer?
No one here, even you, can tell what's in your bottles. So, without meaning to sound like a jerk, I want to say this: No one knows if your beer will taste like it was tainted other than you. And the only way to know, is by opening one and tasting it.

I was mostly taking a stab at being humorous but here you go:

Penicillium is a common variety of mold/mildew and are among the main cause of food spoilage. The drug (antibiotic) is created by fermenting penicillium chrysogenum in a wort like medium. Less than 1% of people have an adverse reaction to it, symptoms are similar to those commonly diagnosed as food poisoning.
