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!

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!

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.

Well, I’m not a lover of the most beers they serve over there, but for what I’ve seen, they have a nice collection for those who likes it. Nice, very friendly staff, and a very good atmosphere over there. The prices seems a bit high, and the outside could use a make-over, but that is not ruining this one.

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.

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!

I was here during the Night of Great Thirst. They had Eylenbosch Kriek on tap and Eylenbosch Gueuze and Extra Faro in bottles for the event. Me and another guy asked to see the regular beer list and they they showed it to us. A really great list with lots of Lambics from all (or almost all) Lambic makers, some of them are quite rare. We enjoyed a bottle of 05 3 Fonteinen Schaerbeekse Kriek and I took home two Selection Lambic bottles for 25E each as well as an 1984 Eylenbosch Gueuze (AMAZING!) for 10 or 15E. They even took us to their cellar which was a very interesting experience - loads and loads of Lambic bottles all over with an always-slightly-wet floor. Too bad about the very limited opening time, this place is great and should be visited by more beer lovers.

Hard to find out in the middle of the tiny town. Extremely small quaint feel to it, hops all over the ceiling, solid bottle list but not completely up to date. Almost never open but open enough for us to get in for some morning lambic and hang out with uli talking lambic blending. Fun spot, virtually no one there, some after church crowd of the locals.
