4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Been on holding on to this one for a while and what was a better occasion to pop it than Drewbeerme’s bachelor party. Clear light yellow with med head and lacing. Light citrus, fruit not hops, sweet aroma. Spicy, sweet, belgian yeast, very tasty and dry. Nice light body, little fizzy. Very solid American-Belgian and better than I thought it was going to be.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2011 Cloudy yellow and khaki colored head. Some wheat in the aroma. More wheat in the flavor, almost like a wheat beer. Very light malt and hops. Good, but no complexity and light flavors.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at beerbistro. Crisp yellow body, small creamy bubbly white head and some lacing. (3+) Muted, but lovely aroma - sweet, lightly fruity and yeasty with notes of honey and alcohol. Flavour has ambiguous sweet malt up from that quietly gives way to dry alcohol on the back of the tongue and in the finish. Quick notes of citrus and wheat. Average to medium palate (3+). This was very good. I am surprised to see this rated so low - hope to pick up a bottle or two to see if it continues to impress.

I have had this several times before, but I didn’t review it with the praise it deserves.
The Brooklyn 1 embodies what most big brewers wish they could make on a consistent basis: great looking, medium body, and a great taste of malt, hops on the edges, with twist of citrus at the end.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Sampled at DØE-festival, Valby, 2007 with svoger.] Expected more, but maybe I was filled up with too much stouts and IIPA’s. But Brooklyns beers are always worth a visit and I’m sure this is a nice brew under real circumstances. Hazy and golden. Notes of yeast, alcohol. coriander, spices and indeed a complex beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2009 Partly cloudy blonde body topped by a medium white head with medium retention. Pleasant fruity yeast and grassy hops on the nose. Wow, what a nice highly drinkable tripel. The alcohol is nowhere to be found. Superb mouthfeel, pillowy and full with lots of small bubles. The taste is not overly complex but is really nice. Mellow fruity notes of citrus and bananas backed by some citric flavour (lemon) to increase drinkability. A little honey and some faint caramel. Lots of dry grassy and floral hops. Basic KindOfTripel but so effective. Everything in that beer screams “drink me” to the point where I can barely hear the voices in my head.
