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!

The selection is amazing, with 6 different Cantillon drafts/casks (along with others) when I visited, and an extensive bottle list. The service was also impeccable, very efficient and with all of the bartenders and servers happily speaking English. The quality is world class, at least with the lambics, which was my main focus. The atmosphere is I suppose a matter of preference, and I liked the feel of the St. Gilles location more. This was more than fine though, with a large outdoor seating area and plenty of room at the bar. The food selection is pretty limited, but what I had was good. The price on some of the bottles was pretty high, but absolutely appropriate in my opinion for a world class bar like this. Overall, one of the best bars I've ever been to.

Really cool spot, must-go for craft beer lovers. Awesome selection with a ton of sours, saisons, belgians, etc. Had some good italian beers on tap that just came out. Some of the bartenders were kind of assholes but whatever. Food was great, had the meat and cheese plate with bread.

The route back from Cantillon conveniently took us past Moeder Lambic's second location and we stopped there for a not-so-quick lunch of quiche and a meat and bread plate. There I tried the Band of Brothers, a hoppy Belgian style IPA made by Brasserie de la Senne in collaboration with Moeder Lambic. This was a very hoppy beer that I liked, since I hadn't had a really hoppy beer in almost 2 weeks, but may have pushed the limits for me. Since it took a while to get our check, I ended up ordering a second beer, the Cantillion Iris Grand Cru on tap, which was much more mellow than the regular version. I love this beer bar!
We ended up back there later the same day and tried even more great beers.
One of the best beer bars in Brussels for sure!
