Visited last week in May when in Brussels for the day. Only lambic brewery I have ever visited and I was very impressed. It is a self-guided tour for 6 euro which includes two samples at the end of the tour. They have an English pamphlet in addition to other languages (sadly, I didn't catch which) that explains each room. I'm also a home brewer, which helped in my understanding the process a bit more but I found it fascinating. There was a good amount of activity in the brewery even though it wasn't season where brewing was taking place.
If you like lambic and are interested in speaking with brewers that take pride in traditionally brewing it I highly recommend. Cantillon adds no dextrose or sucrose to sweeten as some of the other larger lambic breweries and they take pride in it. The location is near a metro stop, it's easier to find if you know which exit to leave from to head toward Rue Ghuede and there's a map on their website which is helpful.
