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.
