Visited the barrel room with some comments from the owner. We got offered a tasting also. Bought a few Questche for a low price. Nothing spectacular but a fun detour to make.

Stopped by on opening day (Saturday morning). It’s a big warehous-ey place on the Walloon border, nice view outside but not a particularly charming place per se. Pierre was there with a small group of other customers, he took us around the barrel room and showed us what he did, pretty cool stuff. Got to try some Quetsche on premises and took home a couple dozen bottles. Great place to fill up on Tilquin at a reasonable price, Both gueuze and quetsche were under 10 euro a bottle here. More expensive than the old places, but still a great value product. Will return when I run out :)

Stopped in on opening day, when crowds were very tiny, and mostly francophone. Pierre was pulling lambik straight from the barrels and serving it by the pitcher. They also had bottles and a few taps. Very informal, with Pierre leading discussions and tours when enough people built up, and then answering questions when the crowds were light. Visited again during the Tour de Geuze 2013. Much more formal, and much bigger crowds in the blendery itself. They were roasting a whole ;pig on a spit, quite the sight to see, and you could line up (or queue, your choice) and grab a hunk of flesh, accompanied by various sides, very tasty - although I’m not entering a food rating, since food is not normally available on normal days, as far as I know. Nice to see this on the "other" side of the language line.

Visited during Tour de Geuze 2013. Almost literally a stone throws away from the Flemish “border”. I think that you probably have to go by car here because public transport might be tricky. Tour was kind of weird because I thought that we were being held hostage or something. They let us in and then closed off both the exist and the entrance. We were bit in a hurry – I just wanted to see the barrels etc. Still the tour was very informative. Meerts is very interesting and fun to drink. Owner is a cool guy from what I hear. Prices are really nice for what is a great product.

Visited for TdG 2013. Quite a small place. Despite the massive crowds, the ambiance remained relaxed and pleasant. A decent number of beers were available to try including a meerts. Prices for takeaway bottles were very reasonable. Overall, I’d love to come back on a random weekend to inspect the place without the hassle of the crowds.

Visited during Tour de Geuze. Good atmosphere, nice people.
I really liked that Pierre had Meerts available for tasting. Meerts might not be a great beer style in itself, but it is a historic style one can almost never try.
I had a good time, and there is a great frituur across the street for when you get hungry.

Visited here with ratebeer local sebletitje. So you head to the roll-up door on the right side of the new looking building, especially considering the age of almost all other buildings in the area. Pierre was a terrific host and showed us (me, Sebastian surely didn’t need the tour as he’s here often, lucky bastard) the whole operation from getting in the wort from four breweries, dispensing said wort into his large array of oak barrels, blending, fermenting and packaging. This is a smooth operation and it seems to me Pierre has a great thing going here.
As other reviews have stated before this is a production Gueuzerie where you can a buy bottles, cases of bottles, kegs likely, glassware and at times T-Shirts. This is not a brewpub.

I stopped by during the week after Borefts. Pierre was friendly and very helpful. I did manage to score one of the plum lambics and some Guezue glasses while I was there.
I rated the place I high as possible, there is just not much there other than a brewing/blending house

Nice to load up on some gueuze again. Pierre is a really nice and friendly guy. But still, I can’t rate this any higher, because it’s still just an old building where you can buy some beer :p
