Very nice and cosy bar. The selection of lambics is outstanding. Also some very rare beers. Prices are good, staff is very friendly. A must go!

Difficult to find, hard to get to, and open 2% of the week. I enjoyed my time here, but this spot is perhaps too cool for me. Mellow, relaxed morning drinking lambic, the service is peaceful and friendly but without connection. The lambic is awesome, the list fantastic. The atmosphere is amazing, hops hanging all over, cool breeze blowing through the open door into the 20-person cafe, but it is very quiet, almost "dead". A few items on the menu not in stock. Awesome time meeting Uli and talking lambic blending, hanging out enjoying great beer during a relaxed Sunday morning. Of course if you don’t like lambic, you should probably go somewhere else, but you like lambic if you know of this place.

Finally made it to this reputed café with the weirdest opening hours. Rustic, very old fashioned environment both inside and outside, clearly an old ’volkscafé’ turned into a heaven for lambic hunters. Needless to say, it was extremely busy when we got there, and it took more than half an hour before we could even begin to make our order. I would therefore recommend to order everything you want to consume at once in order to avoid having to wait for another half hour - especially since the pub closes at 1:30 PM (though it was already 2:30 PM when we left the place as the last customers). Lambic selection is evidently great, with some rare vintages at, in all, quite reasonable prices. The two brothers who own it clearly know what they are doing and are open to a chat about lambic any time. Very pleasant, friendly atmosphere and a terrific experience for a lambic lover like myself, too bad it is near impossible to get there if you do not have a designated driver with car.

One of my top places! This bar has everything - the atmosphere of decades ago (when there was waaaay more such bars), friendly service (the two brothers and their mother!) and an incredible selection of lambics and gueuzes, vintage bottles as well. A must see for every Sour/Lambic fan!

Getting there can become tricky. Especially when the establishment is only open for 3 hours on Sundays. And even more so when the only bus line getting there is temporarily suspended in Brussels.. Anyways, well worth the effort. The outside does not reveal the incredible experience awaiting for you inside. We got there as the place opened and it was filled with us and a table of 4-5 local elders. Interiors similar to my home tavern, extremely familiar and welcoming. Those elders were drinking glass after glass of lambic as if it was the most natural thing in the world, I’m envious. Anyways, the draft selection is already very good, and useful to warm up, but the bottle selection is mind blowing. Hundreds of different lambics is something you see only in your wet dreams. Costs are what they are, and certainly cheaper than Brussels. Food is non existent except for bag of crisps and dried sausages. Yves, Kurt and their mother were extremely friendly and we had an extensive chat. We stayed there the full opening hours and more, discussing of the wonderful world of lambic. You will not find more welcoming people than the Paneels. And remember to sign their guest book!

Visited on numerous Sundays over the past couple years as well as after Toer de Geuze 2013. Some of my most memorable drinking experiences have been here, and no trip to Belgium is complete for me without a visit. The bar looks and feels exactly what I imagine an old school traditional lambic cafe to be. The selection of lambic is as good as it gets. Several casks of unblended lambic along with a huge bottle list containing numerous vintage bottles at prices that can’t be beat. Yves and Kurt are great hosts and love to chat about beer. Truly a must visit bar for any lambic lover.

Visited here during another Belgium trip. Was really crowded, but a great atmosphere. Old locals enjoying lambics, few tourists around. Staff was busy, but ready to serve anytime. Excellent lambic selection going on, as to expected since this bar calls itself "The House of Lambics’. Nothing wrong there. We had an excellent lambic and left after that. Great place.
