Uno dei posti più caratteristici da andare a visitare, ottimo per i lambic invecchiati e per l’atmosfera veramente unica.Straordinario il festival della Grande Sete organizzato da loro

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 aren’t. The bus trip from Brussels goes past both Belle Vue and Eylenbosch. On one hand it’s a shame it doesn’t open more frequently, but it does guarantee a good crowd. Do it.

WAAAUUWW. Insane bottle list. All the classics in various vintages at reasonable prices. BUT what maked my day was the atmosphere. Friendly hosts and locals. A great experience.

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!

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!

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.

Wonderful old pub open on Sundays only after church.. The local marching band stopped in while here for some oompah music and singing (for free beer). Crazy beer and glass collection will make you drool and run out of pocket money fast. Good grub too. Run by Yves and Kurt Panneels and family...Fun place....

kraddel  (129) some beerplace , Belgium | April 27, 2014
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 ...

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.

Very authentic lambic café 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.
