I'm making my first lambic beer, a kriek lambic with a one month old, last week I dropped 1lb cherries. Today, I noticed this white thing in top:

White and weird bug

Should I concern about this? Or just let it go...

That's what a lambic is all about! That's the pellicle forming. Completely normal.

  • Aright, thanks... I'll leave my beer do whatever it wants to do a long while

  • Not too long, I've found that lambics have the shortest shelf-life, and can get over-bitter.
