In brief: Syrup taste
The most common cause of a "syrup taste" is the presence of ketones.
Ketones are a product of the metabolism of fat. When you're body does not have enough sugar to burn, it burns fat instead and makes ketones. Ketones are most commonly present in people who have been fasting, drinking a lot of alcohol, or have diabetes.
