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

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.

Visited here during another Belgium trip. Was really crowded, but a great atmosphere. Old locals enjoying lambics, few tourists around. Staff was busy, but ready to serve anytime. Excellent lambic selection going on, as to expected since this bar calls itself "The House of Lambics’. Nothing wrong there. We had an excellent lambic and left after that. Great place.

Visited on numerous Sundays over the past couple years as well as after Toer de Geuze 2013. Some of my most memorable drinking experiences have been here, and no trip to Belgium is complete for me without a visit. The bar looks and feels exactly what I imagine an old school traditional lambic cafe to be. The selection of lambic is as good as it gets. Several casks of unblended lambic along with a huge bottle list containing numerous vintage bottles at prices that can’t be beat. Yves and Kurt are great hosts and love to chat about beer. Truly a must visit bar for any lambic lover.

If you love lambics, this is the place to go. A mecca for a good reason, definitely worth getting up and taking that bus on Sunday mornings. Will visit again!

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.

Un paradis pour les lambics lovers. endroit qui a une âme, café typique où se côtoient toutes les générations et qui a la particularité de n’être ouvert que le dimanche! Bues une Schaarbeek kriek et une Eylebosch geuze exceptionnelle. A faire au moins une fois!

Worth waking up early and standing in the rain to catch the bus to this place. Small little village and a quiet little bar with friendly staff and locals. Had some really nice sours and a fantastic gueuze cheese. Will visit again!

Visited during TdG 2017 weekend. Because of the TdG the menu was different and limited, but full with many very good lambics. Quite ordinary ambiance, the was service not too attentive and could be be better. Pricey, and only cash. Not sure why this place so overrated, especially when it’s open 3 hours a week. Maybe because of rare beers that available here, unfortunately I could not see them on TdG weekend.
