Extracted honey has an odd smell/taste

I live in Northeast Kansas and just extracted my first six frames of capped honey. The honey has a slightly bitter or rancid smell to it. I had noticed this smell while taking out bits of burr comb over the past year, but thought it was maybe just unfinished nectar fermenting a bit. But since all six of these frames were fully capped, I don’t think that’s the case. Do I just have “bad” flowers in my area?
