I won best in show in my LHBS's comp this year and got second in sour ales in the Kentucky State Fair with a young lambic. When it was 7 months old it got the state fair ribbon and when it won the LHBH comp it was 8 months old. It can be done especially with Jolly Pumpkin dregs.
What is the gravity right now?
