Thanks for the suggestions everyone!
Heading to the bottle shop later to see if I can find any of these guys.

I will probably let the Strong Ale and Trappist work for a week or two, then pitch the dregs of whatever I settle on, maybe along with some more cherry juice.

(I ended up bringing the "OG" down to 1.072 with a sanitized water addition)

Where do you live so we know what you can get?

Ommegang Biere De Mars and Orval are a couple of common ones.

Where can you find the Ommegang Biere de Mars? I thought it hadn't been brewed since 08.

They started brewing Biere de Mars again recently. Also if you want a source of bugs, Lindemann's cuvee rene gueuze is not pasteurized so it has some bugs in it, and it is fairly widely distributed. But they do pasteurize their other products.

Cool. Haven't seen it yet. Found an 08 recently that was very good, if somewhat on the decline.

In response to TNGabe, I live in Austin Texas. So the selection is good of the subset that make it to Texas.
I can get Ommegang, Orval, Goose Island (just made a starter from the dregs of their Matilda, we'll see if it takes), Petrus, Victory, and some others. No Jolly Pumpkin or Russian River though.
I;m trying to find Ommegang's Biere de Mars, but haven't had any luck. Though one of my bottle shops has loads of unusual Ommegangs, do any other Ommegang beers have bugs or Brett in them?
Has anyone used the dregs of any of the Goose Island farmhouse ales? Any luck? As well, the one I used today was bottled this year (January), so there was zero funk to it. Have any of you had a chance to try one that's aged for a while? Anything funky happening in it?

Orval is a good bet. I don't believe it's a single brett strain per Brew Like a Monk. If you don't want anything other than brett, Petrus or any other Flanders is out. I really wouldn't bother looking for the Ommegang either. It's on the 'historical' list on their website. They have brewed a couple Biere de Gardes recently, so that might be the confusion.

Your best bet is to buy some Wyeast Brux, IMO.
