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.

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.

have not set foot there for many years now -it being in my village of birth-, we spent many sunny sunday afternoons there, being young. Brings back memories, and it does confirm: it was always a top place to be.And the selection of beers remains what we had over the years.

Probably not much more I can say than what has already been written, this is an amazing little lambic lovers paradise with opening hours that could only be stranger if it were open only on Monday mornings. Totally unique, there’s really nothing else like it. By the church square in a small village, it’s full (on a Sunday morning) of mostly older locals enjoying lambic with a scattering of lambic loving tourists and others that have made the pilgrimage. Oh, and the beer selection is pretty good too with some real gems at fair and not excessive prices. Well worth the visit, but chances are you knew that already...

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.

Excellent lambic and geuze selection at this family run cafe. This is a quintessential authentic local cafe in the Payottenland. If you like lambics, or just want to experience them in a great location, this place is not to be missed.

El sitio al que volvería una y otra vez. Increible atmósfera ambientada en los 40, buenos precios, brutal selección y, lo mejor, la parroquia de abuelos del pueblo disfrutando de lámbicas sin postureo ni moderneo. Volveremos una y mil veces.

incantevole locale dal sapor antico mecca imperdibile per gli amanti di lambic ,passare una domenica mattina a bere affascinati dai racconti degli abitanti locali e un esperienza unica

Wow, what a genuine place this is! A very cosy, real and honest Lambic bar (if I may call it that). I almost get the feeling that DHVL is somewhat like a tourist trap. The prices are not even that high for rare bottles at this place, specially compared to DHVL and Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Still a 2007 Hommage is €45 and Framboos was €75 (sold out appearantly). Allagash (!) stuff only €10 as some other harder to find beers are between €10 and €40... Most expensive I saw on the vintage list was the Eylenbosch 1984 Geuze for €110... Drafts are normally priced between €2.50 and €3 Very friendly and good service! Can’t say it enough, super place, true pajotten cafe! Perfect vibe! Almost flawless! Best place one can go for Lambic! True to the core!
