Wow, this is a hidden realm back here. From the main Ďwalkwayí you would never know this was here. My first thought was this seems like a ďspeakeasyĒ as you need to know someone to find out where it is, I did. So sebletitje and I enter the small space and took a seat in the cramp confines where thereís worn smooth wood in every direction except the bricked in fireplace. I enjoy the serving method as the Faro (and the Gueuze too maybe) is served in an aged ceramic vessel. The service was ok and I didnít try the food as it seemed more soul-full food can be found elsewhere. As far as beer goes they have the Timmermanís Lambic Doux Faro and a few other offerings none of which is worth heading in here. It is worth it to experience the mood and history and architecture.

Lovely old tavern down a dark alley off Tabora. Iím sure that on my visits quite a few years back this was a proper Lambic House, I do believe that my first introduction to this wonderful style was in here. It looks like there has been quite a change in here as it now seems like a pub with just an average range of beer instead of doing one thing really well. The Landlord didnít interact very well either being quite frosty with people. Not sure I will be going back now.

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.
