100 Beers to Try Before You Die

B.R. Rolya Says: "Unlike many Belgian breweries that produce malty, sweet beers, De Ranke loves hops. But XX Bitter is no one-dimensional hop bomb. There are tons of hops in the aroma and flavor, yes, and a solid bitterness throughout, but that's balanced by malt and the barnyard-character of the Brettanomyces wild yeast strain. I could drink this all day long. And have."
