In Belgian terms this is a "session-strength" version of the classic, utilising 6 different hop varieties. The aroma on this edition is bumped up a notch by the use of dry hopping, and also with the addition of fresh orange zest. As is tradition, Duvel 6.66 is naturally refermented in the bottle giving the characteristic Duvel high carbonation, contributing towards a fuller mouthfeel.
The bright gold Augustiner Edelstoff has understated notes of cut grass, herbs, and sweet malts that are balanced by a moderate bitterness. Its light body and delicate carbonation lead to a smooth mouthfeel that still finds a way of being crisp and lingering with a fantastically clean finish.
The recipe of this hazy India Pale Ale is as playful as the Belgian shepherd dog. We combine late and dry hopping with a unique yeast that complements fruity hoppy flavors. In true Belgian tradition, we do not filter the beer and do a secondary fermentation in the bottle to maximize all the goodness. The combination of these techniques create a natural haze and silky smooth taste.Belgenius
