Pellicle on a Pineapple Saison

Discovered this pellicle on top of a batch of saison which has been sitting on pineapple for a 2 week secondary fermentation. I’m not sure who our friend is. Maybe Brett? Maybe Lacto? Whatever, it is a beautiful bright white, and its textures are almost mesmerizing.

(I bottled the saison, which smelt and tastes just fine. Also cleaned vessels and tubes thoroughly with iodine solution.)
