The NS web site has been consistently wrong about the through trains to Brussels - it shows them as running, even though they are not due to the vacation period.  The departure monitors in Maastricht have even shows through trains to Brussels, even when the trains don't run beyond Liege.  All the trains involved are Belgian, and the B-Rail web site has had the correct information.  Shame on NS.

Thanks,
