I brewed my first and only lambic back in Oct '08, and it's been getting funky with Wyeast 3278 in a dark closet ever since.
I sampled it in Oct '09, and SWMBO agreed it has nasty, medicinal stuff. I was tempted to dump it, but haven't needed the extra secondary, so it has sat.
I sampled it today, and it matured into a tasty brew. Light malt flavor and tartness, has some horse blanket mustiness, mostly in the aroma. Quite happy I didn't dump it!
I noticed that the volume in the fermenter is about 1" less than my original fill line. I've had a bubble airlock on, and I replaced that with a double layer of Al foil.
I now want to add cherries to it. Looking at some of my favorite Lambic breweries, they add ~2# cherries per gallon. I think I'm going to get some fresh Oregon cherries, crack them slightly, then add them to the secondary.
How long to folks like to let it sit on the cherries?
