@tehwateverWho knows. Maybe his body hasn't regenerated enough to return his sense of taste? Personal experience: I recently had parosmia (distorted sense of smell) that basically makes anything any citrusy-smell to smell like rotten lemon. I didn't get hit or anything, but it's kinda common that any damage to your body may or may not disrupt your normal sensory functions. Took me close to a year to recover from it.
Why can't he taste food anymore?
