I've had a few brews that had formed a faint pellicle yet tasted awesome - the funky, more complex flavours of a wild yeast/mild infection is something that tastes even better than a 'clean' ferment.

The wonders of yeast eh?!

Bit cloudy Hop Soup, who cares with a Beer as Smelly and Fine Tasting as this little beauty.
