I very highly doubt it. That beer looks fine to me.

Uh... specs? What kind of brew? How long has it been in there? Primary or secondary? Temperature? Any known chance of contamination?

More than likely, RDWHAHB.

Thanks, I thought that it had a whitish cloud on the surface, as soon as I opened the beer lightly moved and the cloud was gone.

I'd say it's doomed. Seriously, in that first picture it appears to have some crystalline eye with an evil glowing pupil floating around in it. Did you make the mistake of brewing the Beholder Ale recipe?!?!?

Have you taken any SG readings yet? It's hard to tell if anything looks visibly wrong from those pictures. If your OG is stable and you're still worried, bottle or keg as soon as you can. That's all you can do, right?
