Octobre 2011. Bonne amatrice de Gueuze je devais aller dans ce bar. Direction la Belgique par un dimanche matin. Arrivée dans ce petit village, j’ai trouvé le bar avec son nom imprononçable (pour moi Française!) qui se trouve aux abords de l’église. Il y a vraisemblablement une clientèle d’habitués. Dégustation d’une 3 fonteinen framboise et une avec des ’cerises de Schaerbeek’. On voit que les patrons sont des collectionneurs et grands connaisseurs de gueuzes. J’aimerais posséder la même cave !

What an experience! Nicely restored old lambic pub, great selection of well-kept and expertly-served lambics and guezes. Very friendly proprietor, staff and locals. One of the best such experiences in Belgium, IMHO.

This extremely friendly family run pub is a must visit. The limited hours and remote location can make this a challenge, but do it anyway. The 1984 Eylenbosch gueze is beyond description, and will not be available forever.

Way outside of Brussels with super limited hours, but its worth figuring it all out. A true local spot, we were the only non locals there. Unreal selection of lambics, top 5 in the world by far. This is more of stop than De Heeren to me.

We meet one of the owners (Yves) @ pressmeeting project "leven in de brouwerij" Now last saterday (06.06.09) w’ here for the day off the kriek. In a very small village is this the place to be. Great attraction here complete selection of bottled gueuze and other lambics, krieks, stored and served perfectly. Amazing ! What a choice.

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.

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.

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.
