Wow, this is a hidden realm back here. From the main ‘walkway’ you would never know this was here. My first thought was this seems like a “speakeasy” 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 there’s 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 didn’t try the food as it seemed more soul-full food can be found elsewhere. As far as beer goes they have the Timmerman’s 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.

A charming little old school Brussels place, very quiet when visited early evening on a Wednesday. The beer selection is small but the Timmermans faro made for them was a pleasant surprise that I only knew about upon visiting. Worth popping in if only for that!

Nice place with lots of wood. Only a couple of surprises. Prices are reasonable.

Lovely old tavern down a dark alley off Tabora. I’m 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 didn’t interact very well either being quite frosty with people. Not sure I will be going back now.

Visited 10-SEP-2015, with Ulkløbben. 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 6.70€ for Timmermans Doux, Blanche, Kriek et Bourgogne des Flandres. I’ll be back someday and I’ll 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 didn’t get it until we started to leave.

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