A: Very chic and trendy appearance. Definitely not an old school Belgian cafe'... This is a welcome change from all the stuffy old places in the neighborhood (although those places have great atmosphere as well - just diffrent - ). The music is excellent, and not too loud, and the layout and feel of the place is perfect. My only complaint actually is that the seats outside are a little uncomfortable.
Q: I happend to be here during the Belgian beer weekend, and they had an amazing selection of specialty taps and kegs. I tried almost the entire special menu, and all of it was very well selected! Defenitly a skew towards lambics, but also a good mixture of other styles as well. there was even a rauchbeer!
S: I spent 4 days in Brussels and I visited this place on about 6 different occasions. Every time I received very knowledgeable and excellent service. The owner Jean is VERY passionate and welcoming to visitors especially if you come during a quieter period.
S: Both the bottle and tap list are very extensive, however the bottle list seemed very expensive. I did eventually order a Mikeller Beer Geek Breakfast however and it was delicious. I get the impression from speaking to Jean that the taps are rotated very often, and new casks appear even more frequently. They have also now begun to age kegs. Its very nice to be able to order a 2008 and 2010 fou fone on tap to compare the two for instance!
F: I only ate here once, the menu isnt huge, but they keep it high quality. Our whole table ordered quiche and it was delicious. we also shared some lambic sausage, which was also very good.
Well,... im not the authority on beer bars in Brussels but, for the 4 days I spent there this was by far my favorite!
