The first beer released is the Wattle Seed Ale, which starts with a blend of Australian and European malts, creating a rich flavour base of caramel with a hint of chocolate. The smooth malt flavours are lightly hopped and then infused with roasted Wattle Seed, bringing a unique and authentic Australian flavour to this fine red ale. The result is an outstanding ale that boasts a smooth taste profile balancing its robust character, an ultimately rewarding yet distinctive beer. Native Range. Formerly Barons Black Wattle Superior Wattle Seed Ale.

From 33 cL bottle. Aroma is malty with a mild bitterness. Flavour is malty with a vague bitterness, nutty and berry flavour. Dry nutty and berry finish. Clearly a different note from the wattle.

Ungstrup (34635) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2007
Bottled. A nut-brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty and very fruity combined with some notes of berries on a underlying note of caramel. The flavor is sweet caramelic combined with light notes of berries - reminding me of sloe berries, leading to a lightly bitter end where the notes of sloe berries lingers around. I wonder if the sloe berry notes I pick up actually are the Wattle seeds. Thanks to Papsoe for sharing.

Bottled@EBF2008 (backlog). Reddish copper colour, mediumsized off-white to beige head, that leaves lace. Aroma is nutty, caramelly, some crystal maltyness as well as some spicyness. Flavour follows the same pattern, but considering itís 5.8 %, it has got a very thin palate.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of highlandlad. Clear, amber golden with a small, off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Sweetish notes of roasted malt. Medium body, roasted malts and caramel. An edge of elderberry. The finish is dry. Not too bad. 200507

bhensonb (14161) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 26, 2007
33 cL bottle. Now brewed by Barons Brewing. Something of a roasted caramel aroma. Dark amber color with a disappearing white head. Medium bodied. Lightly carbonated. Definitely caramel, if not dark malty, sweet. Some very different herb/veg flavor, followed by a slight chocolate burst. After that it is a relatively dry finish that has light veg and light hop. There is a spice in the mouth as well. You donít find this every day. Sort of a nice way to end the evening.

Bottle from Jungle Jimís. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet toasted malt aroma. Medium body. Medium balanced sweet roasted flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Balanced drinkable beer.
