Default Berliner

Just racked my Berliner onto some peaches. There are splotches of white that are starting to pop up on top of the peaches/beer. Is this just part of a pellicle forming, or is this mold forming?

If its mold, should I be racking the beer to get the junk out?

Almost certainly it is yeast/bacteria activity, but without a picture it is impossible to tell for sure. When mold shows up it tends to be after long aging when some of the fruit is up out of the beer. That is part of the reason I tend to wait until a beer is close to being ready to add the fruit.

Its definitely close to being done, and it is floating on/close to the top of the beer. I'll try to post a pic later.
