UPDATED: FEB 13, 2008 Personal Milestone: My First Wattle Seed Ale Rating (out of 4040)!!!!!BückDich (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 14, 2008
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.

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. donteatpoop (127) - Youngstown, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Poured a nice clear honey red with little to no head.
The scent is all corn and hops.
Has an interesting taste and body, in addition to the hops and caramel malts there’s something else there... It almost tastes like brandy. Very interesting taste.
Very good beer, I was pleasantly surprised by it. Wouldn’t be afraid to drink it again.

very fruity and candish in the aroma, its a medium feeling palate. light on the malt and hops, but its nice and fruity that makes this one unique. 12many (277) - Alaska, USA - AUG 26, 2008
Alefest sample. Usually I see Spice/Herb/Vegetable and I am hesitant but this was the overall surprise for me during Alefest. Aroma of caramel, and wheat grass was actually pretty good. Flavor was mostly sweet with some very subtle bitterness. Good mouthfeel and carbonation. This wasn’t a bombshell but was really quite enjoyable.

bottle, slightly darker than an amber ale, nose and flavors are nutty, woody, malts with some dark roast character as well, better than expected nearbeer (5712) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 7, 2009
330 ml, bb 07/21/08. Clear, darkish copper-brown. Small head is persistent and leaves some spots of lace. Molasses, toasted nut and light chocolate aromas. Flavor is molasses, with some light chocolate, toasted nut and dry cereal on the finish. Near-medium body is smooth, slightly watery and sweet. This one tastes more like an adult breakfast cereal sweetened with molasses, but I like it. asedzie (835) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle. Pours deep brown with thin off-white head. Aroma has mild chocolate, mild sweetness, mild burnt caramel. Flavor is light caramel, mild roastiness, overall spicy with slight herbal, fruity taste throughout. Lingering herbal flavors and very light bitterness in the finish. I liked it very much. jimmay (815) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2009
330 ml bottle. Pours dark brown, with a tinge of red, with a nice capuccino-like off-white head. Aroma and flavour are sweet malty, mildy hopped, with interesting ( I guess wattle) scent. Nice. zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Bottle. Pours orange/copper, with an off white head. Aroma is a little odd...malt, nuts, and I guess, wattle. Flavor is malt, spices, and nuts. Medium body. Decent.
