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.

blipp (5679) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2009
Bottle. Pours brown with a thin head. Sweet malt aroma with toasted grain. The flavor is sweet and almost bready, with caramel, toast, and a hint of earthiness. I expected this to be a trainwreck but it was actually pretty good and very drinkable.

AmEricanbrew (5523) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 22, 2008
Clear amber with a tight head. Mildly sweet honey caramel aroma. Medium body. Decent flavors are mildly sweet pale malts with an earthy bitter grain flavor from the wattle seed i presume. A good hot weather brew.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Bottle. This was very different. Pours an amber body. Aroma and flavor is strange earthy hops, sweet caramel malt, nice hops. Creamy body. I enjoyed this earthy treat.

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 27, 2008
Bottle. Poured a reddish brown, yet light, clear and transluscent. The aroma is almost nutty, lightly carameled. It drinks with a moderately sweet roast, and a hard-to-peg herbalness. Quaffable. (#3438, 4/27/2008)

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2006
Bottle. Brewed with roasted Wattle seed, which was quite nteresting to know, yet the beer is fairly standard, yet quite tasty. Touches of sweet caramel and nuts, slightly roasty characters. Reminded me of Tooheys Old a little bit.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 14, 2008
Bottle: A nice mahogany ruby color, thin head and nice lacing. Nose of juicy caramel and a spicy nutty character that’s bit like special b or weird hops. The flavor has a rich full body, ample melanoidins and a nutty puffed amaranth with molasses note in the middle. Fun beer, nutty; would make a wicked amber.

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2008 Personal Milestone: My First Wattle Seed Ale Rating (out of 4040)!!!!!
My dictionary informs me that a Wattle is an Australian Acacia. Never had an Acacia seed before, either, that I’m aware of. The body’s a deep copper color and it’s capped by a modest ecru head. The aroma holds some caramel, a bit of dry chocolate, and corncob. Very smooth with a thick wheaty creaminess. The flavor has a tad more chocolate and a very light mint taste that lasts long into the finish. Pretty decent. I think I’ll plant a Wattle in my yard.
