One more thing. I just had a sample of the XX Bitter at the servers meeting this morning and it is really coming into its self. The yeast has almost settled out completely and the hops are showing them selves right along side of the spicy Belgian character that is coming through in full strength now. I know it isn’t as much hops as De Ranke XX, but we were not trying to clone peoples beers here 🙂 If you have had this beer in the past it is worth a second look at it this weekend. Let me know what you think.
