If you’re looking for geuze or lambic, this is THE place to go to. They have (possibly) the largest selection in the world of these beers, and even (diminishing) stocks from breweries/blenders that have been closed for years now. We’re talking real vintage stuff here. Only very few beer bars have lambic on tap (if they serve it at all!) - but here you’ll find it. Open 3-4 hours per week only (during and after Sunday service), so plan your visit. I for one intend to go back several times! Absolutely recommended.

Worth waking up early and standing in the rain to catch the bus to this place. Small little village and a quiet little bar with friendly staff and locals. Had some really nice sours and a fantastic gueuze cheese. Will visit again!

There is not so much more to add to what previous raters said, great place with a great selection. Service is great and the mix of people; beer geeks, locals and cyclists makes it even more welcoming.

Un paradis pour les lambics lovers. endroit qui a une âme, café typique où se côtoient toutes les générations et qui a la particularité de n’être ouvert que le dimanche! Bues une Schaarbeek kriek et une Eylebosch geuze exceptionnelle. A faire au moins une fois!

The ultimate lambic experience. Quiet local place in a beautiful village with friendly customers and staff/owner. Service is personalized and presentation is top notch. Great lambic selection at a reasonable price which is rare nowadays. The draught lambic (Girardin) was in amazing shape. I don’t think it can get better than this, I’ll go with a perfect score.

Been here twice, always a great pleasure. The people working here give excellent service and the ambiance is out of this world. Extremely cosy and welcoming. The selection consists of mostly world class lambics and some extremely rare stuff. Some of the rare things are highly priced, but for example Moeder Lambic and DHVL are generally considerably more expensive. Many of the older bottles are really low in price and you can always find some real gems. Both visits have been some of my best pub experiences in my life overall.

From notes on our visit in May 2012. This place is known for its limited hours (about 15 hours a month) yet has the great selection of current and vintage lambics and gueuze including some where they’ve done their own blending. A group of 4 of us visited. We walked in being the only foreigners in the entire place. We were promptly provided with a beer list and served quickly about making a decision. The more current vintages were reasonably priced and even the more rare, cellar versions were on par compared to most any bar that actually have bottles of the rarest beers. Served in lambic baskets and proper glassware. Overall, a great experience, felt at home with the locals during the hour we were there. This is a world class beer bar that any lambic/gueuze fanatic has to experience at least once in their lifetime. Highly recommended, just remember only open on Sunday mid-mornings.

Here for the festival and the sunday after to drink with new friends. The list of beers wow goes back many years. Quite a good value for regular gueuze. expect to pay more for special beers.

visited during nacht van de grote dorst, so def will re-rate after ever visiting again . I’ve took a look on the menu , and prices here are very good . of course, its in a very small town , but still . Selection for sours def deserves a 100 % . All the ones that they should have ( and still are produced ) are here, together with some rarities . These last ones are more expensive, but thats only logical ;) Service is very friendly , and I know they know how to properly serve a beer . Don’t think they have any foods here . Some lesser points unfortunatly , is that this bar is open a few hours a week . Which makes it ’easier ’ to hold to good bottles, cause if nobody can buy them , they can continue to have em on the menu ... Plus its almost impossible to visit this for me ( and I can imagine many other people ) . Great place, and I would rate this even way higher if they would have a regular opening time ...
