Nice old Lambicland boozer with crazy hours, as you know. The owners were very kind and friendly. Not geeky, but just doing this like they always have. Has to be one of the 2 or 3 best selections of lambic in the world. Not much else, mind you. Prices are quite fair compared to other places. If you want rare, you pay for it, but there were many things we had not tried for very reasonable prices. Fantastic place to visit. Worth the trip in every respect.

Incredible selection!! Never seen so many old and rare lambics. Reach the place by bus and the hours are a little bit odd but you can’t go to Belgium without visit this bar. Defenetly worth the visit, will come back for sure, next time with the car! One Of the best beer Bar in belgium And in the world.

It was hard getting there but it was really worth the effort. The opening hours aren’t that welcoming either but they got an incredible lineup of lambics. Some exclusive stuff and a great cuvée list. It is one of the absolutly coolest places I have visited and it has an amazing atmospere!

It surprised me I never gave this pub a rating, although I’ve been going here for some years now. Great atmosphere, a typical ’Pajottenland’ bar full of vintage beer signs and stuff. The owners are very friendly people. Great selection of lambic beers, sometimes they have a special like a cask of Eylenbosch kriek ’89 on ’Day of the Kriek’. Value is good, vintage bottles have their prices. Recently I was there for ’Tour de Geuze’ and ’Day of the Kriek’ and the barbecue was awesome, organised by people from the area who make their own ’pensen’, typical white or black sausages (black pudding). On sunny days you can just get your beer in the bar and take a seat on the grass fields around, lovely!

Visited during Tour de Geuze 2013. Very, very charming place with a great history located in a tiny village – indeed looks lovely across the church. Very adorable. Atmosphere is top. Beers offer the full standard range of lambic brew’s which are always fun to drink. Prices for these are good. There is also rarer stuff, prices for which are slightly ridiculous I feel. Not much that I haven’t had before, probably very little new finds if you have been trying out lambic’s for some time. Or maybe I have just had more lambic’s than most & they do have a very large part of the existing range. Either way I would mainly recommend this place for its wonderful atmosphere & sense of history.

The ABSOLUTE BEST experience I’ve ever had at a bar! ...despite the ridiculous hours. Vintage lambic list is incredible, perhaps only topped by Akkurat and maybe DHVL (but it’s close). Prices are probably the most reasonable in the whole country -- as of May 2013, Hommage was 45€, for example. Atmosphere is just wonderful, with mostly elderly locals comprising the clientele. We arrived early (around 9:40am; opening is 10am), and the owners’ parents greeted us shortly thereafter, inviting us in early. Both the owners and parents were extremely friendly and warm. Accessible by one bus (#128) from Gare du West -- make sure you’re in Belgium on a Sunday so you can visit this amazing place.

I finally got around to visiting this lambic mecca. The best thing to do is to get the bus their and back, which is good value and fairly quick. The place is rather small and has a traditional feel to it with plenty of brewery/lambic paraphernalia kicking about. The beer selection is rather special with plenty of old lambic at rather reasonable prices. Yes it’s true that I’d tried a lot of it before, but having it all in one place at this price is great. Even though the place was very busy the service was still very good. I urge any lambic-lover to make the journey.

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.

The promised land for any fan of gueuze. Located not too far from Brussels, but in a bucolic location that feels as if it’s of a past time. The bar’s pretty small. Simple wooden tables and a spartan long bar. The walls are decorated with vintage lambic posters. The bottle selection is unreal. A fan of sour beers will have trouble choosing what to order. Multiple taps of unblended lambic are available too. The service is quite good for Belgium, actually friendly. The prices are very fair. More reasonable than the like of DHVL or Moeder Lambic. Overall, this was a brilliant experience. I can’t wait to return.
