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.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2007
Hazy golden and a white head. Nose is very fruity and has yeast. Also little peppry. Flavor is sweet malty, peppery and flowery. Fresh and little dry finish.

holdenn (2106) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2007
Bottle shared thanks to xnoxhatex at Andrews Bachelor Party. Pours a cloudy yellow with a tall white head. Yeasty banana aroma with hints of clove and spice. Banana citrus and yeast flavors that are sweet and creamy. Decent beer but certainly not exceptional.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 2, 2007
Pours with a pale golden body topped by a white, quickly disappearing head with little lacing. It’s slightly sweet with a note of clove and a yeastiness, as well as, an underlying bitterness in the flavor. Medium bodied, smooth yet warming.

PecoKid (3) - USA - OCT 1, 2007 does not count
To echo other reviews, nothing special here, straightforward Belgian style attempt. The bottle I had seemed to have oxidation problems.

Sammy (10659) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2007
A fairly straightforward Belgian style by a US brewer. With some sugar. Yeast, quite secondary spice. Strong carbonation. Drinkable although nothing extraordinary.

malrubius (2448) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 24, 2007
750 ml in Duvel glass. Pale hazy yellow with quickly disappearing white head, leaving lasting ring with large bubbles. Lemon pastry aroma. Complex flavors of confectioners sugar and tart citrus fruitiness, finishing with a spicy dryness. Excellent flavors. Medium-heavy body, and medium carbonation. An excellent tasting beer that could use a slightly livelier, lighter body. Overall, though, first class.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Poured a hazy gold with a medium foamy white head. Initial green apple and soft fruit blossom aroma. Very nice flavour, soft fruity with a touch of corriander. A touch of soft bitterness and a smooth sweet body that hides the 9% alc. well.

Suttree (5879) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Golden yellow, with a decent head. Malty, bready aroma, with some fruity notes. Nice apple or pear flavors to start, with an almost savory Euro-hop finish. Sampled at 2007 Asheville Brewgrass.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 23, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy gold with a lasting thin white head. There is a very faint aroma of green grape and yeast. The taste is fantastic - wonderful fruity sweet malt taste, light tart hops, and a wonderful warm aftertaste. Notes of grape, citrus (orange, grapefruit) and licorice and coriander. Body is chewy, carbonation excellent. An excellent, fresh tasting Belgian!
