I finally got around to visiting this lambic mecca. The best thing to do is to get the bus their and back, which is good value and fairly quick. The place is rather small and has a traditional feel to it with plenty of brewery/lambic paraphernalia kicking about. The beer selection is rather special with plenty of old lambic at rather reasonable prices. Yes it’s true that I’d tried a lot of it before, but having it all in one place at this price is great. Even though the place was very busy the service was still very good. I urge any lambic-lover to make the journey.
One of the great beer experiences I’ve had. This place is a little tricky to reach (it’s a bit outside Brussels and requires a train and bus), and of course the opening hours are comical (only a few hours on Sunday mornings/early afternoons), but the effort is worth it. This place is really a lambic-lover’s Mecca. The selection is incredible, with numerous offerings you won’t find anywhere else in the world. On top of that, the prices on the beers are very reasonable. The service is friendly. The ambiance is jovial - folks just enjoying a few beers on Sunday morning! It is a pretty small place, though, and certainly popular, so make sure you arrive early to ensure you get seats. For lambic aficionados visiting Brussels/Belgium, you should plan your trip so that you can visit this place. It is top echelon.
Difficult to get there; super cheap lambics; lots of locals, when it gets crowded. Insanely lovely place, and a very special experience, but it really is far away and rarely opened.

This place is everything they say about it and there’s hardly anything substantial that I can add: going here is a real beer experience. Lots of Lambics on draught for fair prices, and an extensive bottle list of many vintage and non-vintage bottles, some of which are surprisingly cheap. The place fills up rather quickly, but then empties rather quickly after 12 again. Many locals and beer people having an unpretentious Sunday morning enjoying Lambic. You are probably going to meet many interesting people from the local beer scene as well. Absolutely worth traveling for, and the ridiculous opening hours just add to this experience. The most charming place I’ve ever been to.
Gran local, situado a unos 30 minutos de bruselas, se mezclan lugareños con turistas cerveceros, gran trato y gran seleccion de cervezas a unos precios bastante buenos, lugar imprescinble. Rica bola de queso a la Gueuze
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
