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.

Um lugar mágico, seleção de Lambics única. Como o bar abre somente aos domingos e em horário reduzido, impreterivelmente fica lotado, porém com um pouco de paciência, a qualidade do serviço não é prejudicada. Raridades são largamente encontradas. Fantástico.

Visited September 2016. Finally we made it to this place, really looking forward to the visit. We arrived just as the next door nabo ( the church ) finished its service, which made it a long waiting for our beers, seemed as the locals were to be served first. Finally we got out beers, and they were just lovely, served in good condition. The place is cosy, oldstyle, family buissness. For sure worth a visit.

Rather small place with great atmosphere. Really good selection of lambic. Service was not great, but then again the place was really crowded. Very good prices. I didn’t check the food. Very interesting place

Not much to add, this is the best looking and most charming bar I’ve ever been too. Great selection. Too bad it’s hard to get to.

A great place to drink some lambic, and meet some people of both the local and international beer scene. Specials are, as to be expected, rather pricey, so I prefer sticking with the draft lambics.

Выбор все еще отличный. Цены на кислое лучшие в Бельгии. Приходить надо к 10 утра воскресенья, иначе не сядешь. Еды нет, есть паштет и сыр. Место #1 для фанатов кислого.

Se trata de un lugar mágico. Alejado de la urbe, en un pequeño pueblecito llamado Lennik. Nada más entrar se percibe una atmósfera única. Personas de todas las edades ocupan las mesas, bancos y barra para degustar la extensa selección de cervezas lámbicas de las que disponen. Ofrecen comida en forma de queso elaborado con 3 Fonteinen y paté elaborado con una Geuze de Boon (ambos muy recomendables). Recomiendoir a primera hora (10:00) e intentar probar casi todo de lo que se tenga ganas porque las posibilidades de repetir no siendo de allí son escasas. Hay que tener en cuenta lo limitado de su horario de apertura.
