Default Cross souring

I have a Bier de Mars thats been souring for a few months. I've used the dregs of Orval, Ommegang Bier de Mars, & Gueze Boon.
It has been in for 3-4 months, and has a slight sourness, and not much going on on the surface.

I also have a Lambic made with Wyeast Lambic blend that has a thick powdery pelcile on top. Would it benefit the first beer to scoop a spoonful off the top of the Lambic and drop it in?

I dont think it would hurt the mars but you dont want to disturb the pellicle on the lambic. If it was me I would leave them alone.

i agree disturbing the pelcile would probably not be a good idea
