This is EXACTLY my kind of place: small, off the beaten path, and somewhat exclusive; geuze drinkers are a special breed here in Belgium. I had a bottle in June 2010 from Eylenbosch that was 25 years old, brought up reverently from the cellar and served in a bottle basket. The bottle was covered in dried mold and cobwebs, and the liquid within had depths of character and earthiness undreamed... This is the quintessence of geuze. This is the Church of Geuze, right here. Hallelujah.

One of the best place for a "lambic lovers"! Eylenbosch 1984 is a unique experience. Thanks Yves for your great hospitality!

One of the owners of this place came out on a Monday to let me see this place and pick out some lambics. Very amazong of him to do so. The place is a cool, just what you imagine a Belgian countryside bar across the street from a church would be like. all the good lambics are here and some rarities you wont find anywhere else. Got a lambic basket as a gift and some old Eylenbosch labels and invoice.

The promised land for any fan of gueuze. Located not too far from Brussels, but in a bucolic location that feels as if it’s of a past time. The bar’s pretty small. Simple wooden tables and a spartan long bar. The walls are decorated with vintage lambic posters. The bottle selection is unreal. A fan of sour beers will have trouble choosing what to order. Multiple taps of unblended lambic are available too. The service is quite good for Belgium, actually friendly. The prices are very fair. More reasonable than the like of DHVL or Moeder Lambic. Overall, this was a brilliant experience. I can’t wait to return.

Countbeer  (259) Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, Netherlands | November 10, 2014
Wow, what a genuine place this is! A very cosy, real and honest Lambic bar (if I may call it that). I almost get the feeling that DHVL is somewhat like a tourist trap. The prices are not even that high for rare bottles at this place, specially compared to DHVL and Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Still a 2007 Hommage is €45 and Framboos was €75 (sold out appearantly). Allagash (!) stuff only €10 as some other harder to find beers are between €10 and €40... Most expensive I saw on the vintage list was the Eylenbosch 1984 Geuze for €110... Drafts are normally priced between €2.50 and €3 Very friendly and good service! Can’t say it enough, super place, true pajotten cafe! Perfect vibe! Almost flawless! Best place one can go for Lambic! True to the core!

There is not so much more to add to what previous raters said, great place with a great selection. Service is great and the mix of people; beer geeks, locals and cyclists makes it even more welcoming.

From notes on our visit in May 2012. This place is known for its limited hours (about 15 hours a month) yet has the great selection of current and vintage lambics and gueuze including some where they’ve done their own blending. A group of 4 of us visited. We walked in being the only foreigners in the entire place. We were promptly provided with a beer list and served quickly about making a decision. The more current vintages were reasonably priced and even the more rare, cellar versions were on par compared to most any bar that actually have bottles of the rarest beers. Served in lambic baskets and proper glassware. Overall, a great experience, felt at home with the locals during the hour we were there. This is a world class beer bar that any lambic/gueuze fanatic has to experience at least once in their lifetime. Highly recommended, just remember only open on Sunday mid-mornings.
