Sleepy traditional beer cafe located in central Brussels. It is however not that easy to find...itís down a small alley off the main street. We visited to sample the infamous Lambic Doux and were not disappointed. They serve it from old clay jugs and it tastes rather good really. They also have a decent little bottle selection with some Cantillon etc on offer. Service was friendly and attentive. Worth a visit to get the feel of a traditional beer house and try the doux for sure.

Visited 10-SEP-2015, with UlklÝbben.
Very funny place. Ugly, old fashioned but still not without charme.
A giant jug of Timmermans Lambic Doux. Not bad but not really good.
Glad to have tried the place but will not revisit.

Hidden down an alley, the interior is grand but has seen better days. The brass cas for the doux is nice and the kitcsh stone jugs are fab at keeping the beer cool. Quite a small range, but you can get a tasting tray of four of the draught beers. The snacky food bits are ok though a little on the pricey side.

My last night in Brussels, I popped in La Becasse to check out their cask lambics. I ordered a tasting set and while drinking it in this old historic pub made me feel I was in a medieval manor. There was a very friendly old guy running the room, friendly polite and affable. The tasting set was 6.70Ä for Timmermans Doux, Blanche, Kriek et Bourgogne des Flandres. Iíll be back someday and Iíll order a large old school tankard of the Doux!

Nice old tavern with some kind of lambic beers. A bit of tourist trap. Overpriced and a not so efficient and friendly stuff. Nice decoration, though.

Really crowded, but good looking place. Selection is ok, but nothing special for Brussels. Service is horrible, we had to ask for the check three times and didnít get it until we started to leave.

Nice "house Lambic" taster with 4 different tastings. Awful service ... typical French arrogance approach. Classical historical setting.

Tourist trap. Donít pretend to be a lambic place, when youíre not. Friendly bartender though.

Fun little pub squeezed in between two bigger joints in downtown Brussels. Very old fashioned, a bit cramped but not too bad. The service is old school they have some (not really good) house beers. Prices are decent, they serve some snacks. It would be a great place if they served great beer but unfortunately they donít so itís just an average place.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon. It was half empty when we arrive, but itís was pretty crowded 15 minutes later. Nice tradtionnal looking place located downtown Brussels, but the long corridor to reach the bar help you forget where you are. Beautiful interior, wood is dominant. Service was funny and relatively efficient. Selection is limited to a few taps and regular bottles, but you go there for the Timmermans Lambic Doux tick. We didnít try the food. Nice place with a poor selection. With a better selection, it would be a "must go" place in Brussels.
