The difference you are likely experiencing is the difference between brett in primary fermentation, and then just brett for bottle conditioning. The level of character would depend on the level of attenuation by your sacch yeast. The main difference I've found over time is that brett will reduce and reuse esters of the sacch yeast when just using brett for bottle conditioning. If there's decent extract remaining then you'll get high carbonation.
