My favorite place in Belgium so far, possibly in the world. A pub that is literally opened 4 hours a week in the middle of a tiny village in rural Belgium. The inside of the pub itself is beautiful, very cozy atmosphere with tons of retro belgian beer memorabilia. The selection is outrageous, they had 5 unblended lambics on tap when we were there, and a very nice cellar full of vintage bottles. The prices are quite reasonable, even some of the vintage choices are quite accessible. Despite the place being quite full and full of locals the staff was quite friendly and helpful. They had 3 fonteinen cheese to snack on. I want to retire and live up the street from here.

Very authentic lambic cafť filled with locals having a lambic or a kriek after the mass. Great beer list at affordable prices. More to come, promised the landlady. Worth a detour on a sunday morning.

Pretty awesome experience to cram in with all the local over 60s in their Sunday best for a gueuze or two. Girardin lambik and kriekenlambiek plus every good gueuze and kriek in current production and a couple that arenít. The bus trip from Brussels goes past both Belle Vue and Eylenbosch. On one hand itís a shame it doesnít open more frequently, but it does guarantee a good crowd. Do it.

This is really a hidden gem and has loads of charm. The weather was great so we could sit outside in the sun watching the village church and drink lambic. The place was fairly quiet until church ended and churchgoers were ready for the more amusing part of their morning. Itís best to arrive before church ends, if you want a table. The service was really friendly and knew their beers. The selection of lambics is very good, although they cannot compete with the best bars. Great place for a relaxed Sunday morning.

We went on a Sunday morning approximately one hour after opening and left 30 minutes after the closing time. Located in a small village not too far from Brussells and openened only a couple hours a week on Sunday. We were lucky enough to have a seat as it was quite crowded. More than that, we had a seat at the same table than the famous Uli. We were the only foreigners in the place, everybody else seemed to be locals. Superb ambiance. Cozy, well decorated, not too lound and kind of "out of time". Service was super friendly and they were serving the beers exactly as it should be (good temperature, nice presentation, carely poured, etc.). One of the owner sat at our table when the place became less crowded and it was fun to discuss with him. Selection is awesome for any lambic lover, including 5 unblended lambic on cask and a huge bottle list, including some pretty nice and rare vintage lambics. Some price on vintage bottles are high, but most are extremely reasonable and some are even dirt cheap. I dream of having a place like that one street away from my home. The is a lambic love paradise and it just became my highest rated place ever. Magical! / Update: I went back for the Night of the Great Thirst which is the most amazing beer Festival I ever went too. Only lambics (including some great bottles), great ambiance and perfectly organized. I will be back someday. We also went back on Sunday after Night of the Great Thirst and, again, we had an amazing time. This is the best beer place I have ever been to and I would be here every Sunday should I live in the area.

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.

Great but slightly strange place. I had the misfortune of turning up with a hangover so probably couldnít enjoy it as much as I would have liked. Comfortable and with good service and of course the selection is tough to beat. From Brussels itís just one bus ride, but it does take about an hour. Worth it though.

One of the owners of this place came out on a Monday to let me see this place and pick out some lambics. Very amazong of him to do so. The place is a cool, just what you imagine a Belgian countryside bar across the street from a church would be like. all the good lambics are here and some rarities you wont find anywhere else. Got a lambic basket as a gift and some old Eylenbosch labels and invoice.

In dubio here.. I really like going there whenever Iím near Brussels, but one of itís charms is the small-town atmosphere and lazy Sunday morning feel. So if too many tourists go, this might disappear.
However, if you like Lambic, the place comes highly recommended -I first went in 2008 on the advise of Armand from 3 Fonteinen. Donít expect extreme coolness or massive beergeekery, just expect to have a pleasant Sunday morning with one of the best selections of ordinary and aged Lambics around, in a Belgian small town setting for very decent prices.
Needless to say, if you donít like lambic, this might not be your preferred itinerary.

visited during nacht van de grote dorst, so def will re-rate after ever visiting again .
Iíve 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 . Donít think they have any foods here .
Some lesser points unfortunatly , is that this bar is open a few hours a week . Which makes it íeasier í 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 ...
