COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In Williamsburg, Brooklyn, we forge barley malt and hops from Germany, aromatic raw sugar from Mauritius and yeast from Belgium into our latest beer, Brooklyn Local 1. Behind the full golden color you'll find an alluring aroma, a dynamic complex of flavors. Belgian flair, Brooklyn fortitude and a dusting of our special yeast. To create this beer, we use the old technique of 100% bottle re-fermentation, a practice now rare even in Europe. It gives this beer a palate of unusual depth. Enjoy it locally or globally, as an aperitif or with your favorite dishes. It is particularly nice with spicy seafood and with fine cheeses.

Great brew. I don’t remember most of the details about this one. I was liking it so much I drank it too fast and well, forgot.

bottle, from Cary Wholefoods. Good aroma, sweet & spice. Not strongly spiced, coriander, lite melon, honey, banana, yeast. I poured slow and got a clean golden orange color, second pour had a haziness about it. Sweet flavor, like aroma. Nicely blended, not over powering, but like aroma gives you a lot of subtleties. Coriander, banana, little orange. Medium body, smouth creamy mouthfeel, spiced sweet finish. Went down easy, though didn’t seem particularly strong. Might grab one to see what happens with age.

Bartzilla’s Death Metal Beer Tasting 6/30/07. Shared with Bartzilla, Naven, WeeHeavySD and others. Golden brew with a yeasty aroma with some hints of fruit. makes me think of duvel off the bat. Flavor was a bit grainy witha bit of an herbal kick. Very drinkable, but not the most amazing brew I’ve had.

nice clean and crisp. good feel and good carbonation. very easy to drink. good balanced taste. nothing overpowering the other. malt sweetness, hop bitterness, peppery and fruity tinge- a damn good brew

bottle. golden with half-inch head. smell was distinctly belgian, honey and bready. flavor was surprisingly underpowered. i think it was probably closest to a belgian tripel. pretty malty, somewhat spicy.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2008 Lightly hazed gold, foamy white head. Soft nose of powdered fuzzy fruits, spiced honey bread, and touches of sweet pear and vanilla. Light fruity flavors integrate well into the honey, yeast, and soft alcohol tones. Lighter side of medium bodied, moderate carbonation, fruity, lightly bitter finish. I thought it was well done and dangerously drinkable...

Bottle which Daniel brought over tonight. Pours out a yellow color with a white head. Looks and smells more like a saison to me than anything else. Fruity smell with some bananas and sweet malts. Taste is smooth and highly carbonated with a nice smooth refreshing flavor. Reminded me alot of Hennepin. Really pleasing stuff to drink, surprised its rated low...

Cool bottle. Medium gold color - slightly cloudy withe a medium fluffy head. Aroma of wheat, yeast and a hint of banana. Flavor is crisp and spicy, with some peppery spice, vanilla bean, and light bitterness. Finish is slightly astringent.

Hazy golden with nice white and persistant head. Banana, vanilla and wheat are on the nose with a yeasty Belgian nod to the style. Light clove, spice, flower and pepper are also found in the nose as well and taste. The brew finished in a soft hoppy/acidic crisp touch which refreshed and pleased. An interesting beer which disguises is strength quite well, and yields a tasty and drinkable brew

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 23, 2007
THOUGHTS: An incredible American-made Belgian. Rivals Unibrue and Ommegang. Apple and white wine flavors. Need to get another to put away for a while. This is good but it has the potential for greatness. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, medium yellow with beautiful carbonation bubbles and a dense, average-sized, white head that mostly diminished and left excellent lacing at first then became just fair. The aroma was moderately yeasty and white wine. The initial flavor was lightly to moderately sweet and moderately acidic, while the finish was moderately to heavily sweet and heavily acidic with an average duration. The light to medium body was dry with extreemly fizzy carbonation and a moderately astringet, lightly alcoholic and slightly chalky finish.
