Stumbled on this place while touring in Brussels (I had been to the one in Brugge but did not know about this one until I saw it) as my wife had gotten some ice cream across the street and she wanted to take a look down this street. Anyway, here is my review:

Quality. Well it is tremendous. It is probably three times the size of the one in Brugge and everything is expertly presented.

Service. Really great as the same person was working here in Brussels as the one in Brugge. We mentioned that we saw her in Brugge and she confirmed that indeed, 3 weeks earlier she had been in Brugge working at the De Bier Tempel there. We bought a few things (I already had the 13 beers that I would eventually be carrying home so I could not buy any more beer) and she handled it very well. My wife bought a boot glass for her brother and they packaged it very nicely indeed.

Selection. Well it could not really be improved. Easily 300 and maybe 400 Belgian beers in one place. Wow.

Value. Very reasonable indeed.

Excellent shop for beer and their corresponding glasses, even if they aren't as cheap as the supermarkets. I'd definitely recommend this place, especially if you're short on time and want to buy a selection of bottles to go, including the Westvleteren blonde / 8/ 12 (assuming they haven't run out...though, it's quite pricey: ~15 euro). They must be used to people traveling with their purchases, as they individually wrap each bottle and glass, which was much appreciated.

Enjoyed shopping here. The selection was great. I think almost all beers from Belgium were represented, even ones I'd not heard of before. I didn't ask for help, and the reason was that it was so busy and packed with tourist. The staff simply stayed behind the counter, which was ok for me. The hard part was deciding how much money I could afford to spend. I knew about the other stores around town, but this place was so central and easy to reach, that the few hours I had in the tourist area had to spent well.
They really could do with one of two sales people roaming the aisle and dispensing info, but for someone not into exotic beers and looking for a simple present from the mass produced beers, they leave all that up near the front by the cashiers.

What impressed me most was how careful they were in packing each bottle, testing the plastic bag repeatedly to make sure none of the glass of a bottle was touching or clinking. They packed every bottle separately in it's plastic wrap, and made sure the glassware I bought was equally safely stored before they let me leave their presence. Such an eye for detail made my day.
