I think the good news is that right now there arent enough people willing to (or able to) hoard that much lambic to worry about it spilling over to Hanssens, Girardin, or Tilquin. Yet.


Girardin is gone around here.


I think that has more to do with them not exporting much of it and less to do with hoarding, though admittedly I do have my fair share of black label bottles.

I think it depends on which lambic youíre talking about and I havenít had lomng-aged lambics from all the producers, but Iím sure some on here have. I find Cantillon Gueuze becomes more refined after a few years, then starts becoming really sharply sour, high citric acids after like 10+ years. 3 Fonteinen tends to develop more funk and a refined mineral, wet pavement note, though every blend is going to be different. I notice that most of the "Vintage" 3 Fonteinen blends, which are always going to be more aged at the time theyíre released, are more sour on average.

10-12 cases of Tilquin 375s at my store, and several cases of just about every Hanssenís flavor (375s). 10 cases of Boon Marriage Parfait 2008 (375s) and many cases of the normal Boons and Beersels... a few bottles of Girardin Black Label as well.

No Cantillon or 3Font, but Iím cool with all of the above.
