I made a lemongrass wheat ale, and just racked it and washed the yeast. The yeast in my mason jars smell like lemon.
Will this yeast make my next batch taste like lemon?

Prolly not if you decant the hooch from the top, and make a starter out of the yeast in the bottom.

There will be a tint of a hint of some, but it'll be pretty clean.
