Is this mold in my plambic? Sweet!!

My wife wanted me to brew her a plambic Framboise so I tought I'd give it a try. I Made a medium gravity beer and pitched White Labs 1056 and let that ferment for 7 days. After 7 days I transfered it to a secondary that contained 5 or so pounds of Oregon's raspberry puree then pitched Wyeast 3278 Lambic Blend yeast. I let it sit for 6 months. It never really formed a pellicle like most beers with bugs in them do but the raspberrys eventually all floated to the top. A few weeks ago the raspberrys all went back to the bottom and this awesome mold kind of thing started forming on the top.

Has this happened to anyone else that was making a sour beer or using a similar type of yeast?
