I brewed an AG Honey Brown Ale a couple of months ago. Its been kegged and in the fridge for at least a month. When it ours, it almost looks like chocolate milk and it had a definite sour twang. I think this could be my first batch that has picked up an infection, but would the infection cause the haze? Its not a totally unpleasant sour..might see if I can drink it anyways.

Yes, absolutely will cause cloudiness. How did it taste?

Yes to hazy/cloudy. If it is truly infected and you want to keep it you need to let it finish out.

If you bottle too soon the infection will continue fermenting in the bottle and cause bottle bombs
