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.

This was a very good beer...picked this up in Cape May, NJ and it comes in a cool bottle. The taste is really great as well. Recommended.

Light golden, a little cloudy with a decent white head. Aroma is mostly yeast. Flavor is of spices upfront with a strong yeasty backbone. Overall, pleasant and crisp but with a strong malt presence which makes it very drinkable.

Pours a pale hazy with a medium cremay white head. The aroma is sour spicy mellow and sweet. The flavor is belgian funky, crisp, slightly sweet, and a tad spicy. Smooth on the palate. Tasted at the Summertime Brewsfest, need to do it from a bottle.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 29, 2007
Bottle via Davehoward. Cloudy, yellow golden color. Smell of yeast, malt, sugar, lemons, spice and bananas. Wonder smell. Taste of malt, lemons, honey, spice, bananas, toast and minor alcohol. It was perfect. Not too strong nor weak. Very enjoyable.

Palidor19 (3051) - Brandon, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Its has a lot of spices and orange flavors. The palate is rough texture. Malts and heavy with the hops are very herbal and spicy. This actually tastes like a imitation Belgian ale but its a very good imitation

The aroma is yeast, malt, fruit, and spice. The appearance is hazy gold with an average. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is pretty smooth. Pretty much everything about this beer is a good approximation of a true Belgian.

75 cl corked bottle
Golden coloured with a slight haze. Yeasty, fruity, "Belgian ale" aroma. Flavour is dry and toasted, almost peaty. Peppery finish. An interesting interpretation of the Belgian ale-style.
