Default Not your typical infection question

I'm steadily polishing off the last half dozen bottles of a 70 Shiling that probably got infected. It has some of the usual symptoms. Early in its life, it was astringent, which has finally aged out (after almost 2 years). There is a krausen ring on the bottles. And these things foam like crazy. I even had two bottles explode.

Here's my question: anyone ever get a strong lemon flavor from an infection? I can't figure out where this flavor came from. The ingredients included:

British pale malt
20L Crystal malt
Amber malt
Smoked Pilsen
Peated malt
CaraWheat
Kent Goldings
White Labs 1728 - Scottish Ale
Oak Chip

It wasn't intentional. I sometimes lose beer in my cellar. When I run low, I do inventory and clear out (drink) all the oldies.
