Stiegl Sonnenkonig VI Barrel Aged Weizen Doppelbock 2019 12% Austria 750ml
Stiegl Brewery, famous for more than 500 years in the Austrian town of Salzburg, is one of Austria's top independent breweries making a range of continental beer styles from Lager to Radler.
The Sonnenkonig range are one-off vintage beer releases from 2015 through to 2020, that were made in Stiegl's museum brewhouse. These beers are extraordinarily rare, with the Sonnenkonig II Tequila Barrel Wit 2015 release no longer even available in Stiegl's museum stocks.
Sonnenkonig VI pours a magnificent hazelnut brown with fine opalescence, delicate foam crown, an opulent bouquet of whisky tones, caramel, overripe banana and vanilla, strong first sip, warming with oak notes, delicate bitterness and light forest-honey sweetness, multi-layered with a deep, elegant and impressively long finish.
