In dubio here.. I really like going there whenever Iím near Brussels, but one of itís charms is the small-town atmosphere and lazy Sunday morning feel. So if too many tourists go, this might disappear.

However, if you like Lambic, the place comes highly recommended -I first went in 2008 on the advise of Armand from 3 Fonteinen. Donít expect extreme coolness or massive beergeekery, just expect to have a pleasant Sunday morning with one of the best selections of ordinary and aged Lambics around, in a Belgian small town setting for very decent prices.
Needless to say, if you donít like lambic, this might not be your preferred itinerary.

Visited during Tour de Geuze 2013. Very, very charming place with a great history located in a tiny village Ė indeed looks lovely across the church. Very adorable. Atmosphere is top. Beers offer the full standard range of lambic brewís which are always fun to drink. Prices for these are good. There is also rarer stuff, prices for which are slightly ridiculous I feel. Not much that I havenít had before, probably very little new finds if you have been trying out lambicís for some time. Or maybe I have just had more lambicís than most & they do have a very large part of the existing range. Either way I would mainly recommend this place for its wonderful atmosphere & sense of history.

Fantastic place, you want to imagine this being like an old days lambic cafť. Friendly service, but quite slow when the place is busy. QUirky opening hours, and a bit difficult to get there and back to Brussels.

DSG  (161) Tel Aviv, Israel | August 18, 2008
I was here during the Night of Great Thirst. They had Eylenbosch Kriek on tap and Eylenbosch Gueuze and Extra Faro in bottles for the event. Me and another guy asked to see the regular beer list and they they showed it to us. A really great list with lots of Lambics from all (or almost all) Lambic makers, some of them are quite rare. We enjoyed a bottle of 05 3 Fonteinen Schaerbeekse Kriek and I took home two Selection Lambic bottles for 25E each as well as an 1984 Eylenbosch Gueuze (AMAZING!) for 10 or 15E. They even took us to their cellar which was a very interesting experience - loads and loads of Lambic bottles all over with an always-slightly-wet floor. Too bad about the very limited opening time, this place is great and should be visited by more beer lovers.

This place is everything they say about it and thereís 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 Iíve ever been to.

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.

Cool little place, nice owners, but limited hours. If you have time, this is the place to go on a Sunday morning. No tourists and great beer. Great beer list for on site consumption. Beer can be pre ordered on their website for take out.
