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.

Gelegen midden in een klein dorpje niet ver van Brussel. Gezien de beperkte openingstijden moeilijk te bereiken. Het interieur doet denken aan een oud volks café en is gezellig om te zitten. De service is vriendelijk en snel. De kaart bevat een verbazingwekkende hoeveelheid zure bieren tegen een ok prijs.

Had to make a stop to this amazing lambic mecca. Nice little place with an amazing bottle list along with a nice selection of gueze on draft. The prices were very good and the service was even better. Very nice place to visit and share some amazing lambic with other guests. One very important thing to keep in mind is this place is CASH only. So bring your euros.

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.
