This wa my ultimate beer destination. When I got there, it greatly exceeded my expectations. This review covers only the weekend Lambic Room. (My English translation on the name.)
The atmosphere could not be better. There is a row of picnic tables outside plus a charming little indoor area with small tables. It feels like a small-town mom and pop restaurant. The difference here, of course, is that Armand is sitting at one of the tables and is more than happy to chat about his beer and the brewery, and is quick to offer his feelings on lambic and it's tradition. For me, it could not get any better.
The quality of the beer at Drie Fonteinen is unparalleled. The menu offers a wide assortment of lambics, including several vintages of Oude Geuze and several of the "vintage" selections. The Oude Kriek and young kriekenlambick are both available as well. You can also sample unblended lambic or the faro.
Service is quick and polite, and nearly everyone spoke English quite well. There is nothing like being served gueuze by Aand or his wife. Great presentation an proper glassware.
The prices are fair and cheap, especially for all that you get. The small shop is a must-visit as well.
If you did yourself in Belgium, do yourself a favor and visit this place as often as possible!

Surprisingly few reviews of this place! This is an absolute must-go for any beer lover doing the Belgium pilgrimage. We stopped for lunch, I believe on a Thursday or Friday. Only a few people in there. A quiet little restaurant in a quiet little town. Service was spot on, and the food was the best I had during my week in Belgium. I don't remember exactly what I got, but I think it was some sort of duck or rabbit stew made with gueuze or kriek. Unbelievably delicious! The brewery was quiet that day but the had a little shop where you could buy beers, glasses and other swag. Whatever you do don't miss out on this place.
