On the back bloody porch!

Im making a starter for tomorrow and took my W1056 starter out of the fridge. I use the grumpys method and draw off 400mls when making the 1.5l starter and put that back in the fridge for next time. I smacked this one 2 July and have done 3 brews with it. I took the lid off and it smelt like a malty apple - really strange smell...so poured a bit in a glass and it tastes like apple juice??? I will carry on and make the starter and see if it fires (now that the malt is cooling down). Is it infected do you think? Ive never had a starter smell or taste like apples. If its infected would the starter fire? Any ideas? I dont want to use it in my APA if im unsure.
