Brewed for Barons Brewing by AIB

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.

Bottle… Mostly clear, orange ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Decent retention. Light molasses, dates, big-time figs and other dark, menacing things in the nose. The flavor is of dark fruits and light sorghum molasses with an unidentified spice (probably wattle seed). Sweet and chewy with moderate acidity and mild bitterness. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Tangy, dark fruit, abrasive finish.
