Easily the best bar in the heart of Brussels for lambics, with a pretty nice selection of vintage bottles and always some Cantillons on tap (including the Kriekenlambik, Faro, Oude/Jonge Lambik, and others). Prices are very highly marked up for lots of the bottles, so you’d do better to get many of them elsewhere in Belgium. Food is very good and pretty reasonably priced. Service is solid and the servers know their stuff. Mandatory stop in Brussels - much better than the St Gilles location.

Visited on the days around Zwanze Day 2015 with the Cantillon tap takeover in full swing. So 20+ different types of Cantillon on tap though different vintages of some and some not-a-ticks. It’s a fairly nice place with a long bar. A modern craft beer bar with the interior made to look a bit more like a brown cafe. The food was decent, service was nice and fast once you got their attention. On the regular days, the taps weren’t too interesting. A lot of well known names, not much in the way of small Belgian breweries.

I really enjoyed drinking here. A lot of tables and many taps. Didn’t see any bottles menu but didn’t asked for it either. A lot of not so interesting Belgian beers on tap and 12 or so guest taps. The sevice was not that good but it didn’t bother me much. Should visit again for a better rating.

Great place at the city’s center. Quite big, a lot of tables inside and a big bar, outside seating too. More modem ambiance, not like it’s small cozy older brother. Great selection of Belgian beers. I visited it during Zwanze 2015 days so my attention was attracted from the 20+ Cantillons on tap! There are many bottles too. We had 3F Zenne y Frontera there. They have some food too but I didnt try it. Very good service, very good prices.

Visited 10-SEP-2015, with Ulkløbben, and again two days later. Tried both outside and inside serving. Very very knowladgeable staff. Fantastic service, everything brought to the table. Large taplist. Too much belgian stuff for my taste there but who can blame them for that? A small bottle list displayed on boards but if you ask they have plenty of bottles not on any lists. Several fridges behind the bar but also fridges you can not see. We asked for recomandation on Belgian Craft Brews and were served interesting stuff we had never heard of. Prices af very low. We saw some of the bottles in Brussels Beer stores and the mark up was in the range 20-30%. A must visit place in Brussels.

Great selection on tap, including up to 6 cask lambic/ gueuze (unfortunately Tilquin sold out on our visit). Good range of locals and guests including some of the usual UK suspects. House beer from de la senne is very good. Bottle list too; though was being redone when we were there; so a number of items out of stock. Unfortunately we had a really skunked bottle of blaugies/hill farmstead la glass of course! though all other beers were great. outside heating preferable as a little stifling inside with no aircon. toilets downstairs are ok, nothing special. a few small tapas dishes are quite nice; but they don’t serve these past 9pm. Generally ok value for money. Service attentive, beers brought swiftly but a little tiricker to get the bill!

Spent the whole first night here pouring all sorts of great lambic. Decent prices great service. Nice atmosphere withoutside deck.

Interesting place with a large number of taps, only 5 or so guests so not too helpful for repeat visits. Bottles looked quite interesting but way too expensive.

Had an impressive selection of beers I had never heard of. Good suggestions by staff. Some food as well, something lacking in many of the other top beer places. Wish I could have gone back again. Not far from Manniken Pis.
