A friend of mine wanted to make a Lindemans clone lambic.
So I said buy the ingredients and a fermentor and I will help you.

We brewed this beer on January 6th 2010.
Brewed it from 1.036 OG
Its currently sitting at 1.004 SG

I brewed it with a Wyeast labs 1056 in the primary for a week
racked to secondary fermentor, where it sat for 2 weeks.
I threw in a Belgian Lambic Blend (wyeast 3278) in the tertiary fermentor after I racked it from the secondary along with a second dose of Wyeast 1056, onto a can or Oregon Raspberry puree.

The beer has been sitting for 1.5 years. I popped it open tonight to give it a taste and I have 'mold' sitting on top of the beer. Its uniform beige in color and smells like fresh bread dough.

Is this anything to worry about?

That does not look like mold to me. It looks like your lambic should look like. You put bacteria in there with the blend. That's what's growing on top. I bet it tastes great.
