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.

minutemat (1943) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
75cl bottle @ the Tenth Shrewsbury Bottle Share, Dec 14, courtesy of myself. Pours a hazy yellow with foamy head. Saison appearance continuing to the taste with spice and lemon citrus in good balance alongside some stone fruit and candi sugar. Pleasant, light and refreshing attempt at a Belgian beer.

Sledutah (5480) - Utah, USA - DEC 14, 2014
750ml bottle thanks to trapped, shared at the holiday tasting
Clear golden with a big white head, some lacing. Aroma is musty and green apples. Taste is sweet caramel, dark fruit and toasted malts
Ok but I wouldn’t want any more than a few ounces. We had Local 1 & 2, I don’t understand the high ratings of either one.

BlackHaddock (4370) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2014
750ml cork and caged bottle: split between five at the December 2014 Shrewsbury Beer Exchange Group Meeting. Thanks Paolo for bringing this. Pours a cloudy gold/yellow with a white head. The aroma was mini-citrus, yeasty and semi-sweet all in one basket. The taste an interesting mixture of saison type tanginess, earthiness and spicy hops with a sweet balance from somewhere. Different and interesting from start to finish.

leghorn99 (56) - Livorno, ITALY - DEC 6, 2014
Un biondo che va verso un dorato carico, parzialmente velato ma non per questo meno intrigante, sviluppa un bel cappello di schiuma, morbido, cremoso, alto due dita. Aroma dolce di malto chiaro e di lieviti fruttati, che includono mela, pera, banana, ulteriore dolcezza data dall’ananas, con note agrumate per finire con un pizzico di pepe. Al palato è leggera e soffice, ma di corpo, rimane asciutta ma con un sacco di spezie; l’alcool passa quasi inosservato, ben nascosto nella maggior parte della beva. Questa caratteristica la rende facile da bere seppur i 9%, e quindi pericolosa; ma è una delizia con un sorprendente equilibrio, un palato liscio ed una leggera carbonatazione.

VDuquerroux (467) - Airvault, FRANCE - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle, 750mL. Home. A golden orange beer (brown orange opaque if you add yeast) with yellow hues at the bottom of my glass. Big white head, good retention. Great lacing. Aroma of biscuit, spices, prune, caramel. Medium sweet, light bitter. Medium voluptuous body, silky texture, good carbonation, sweet warming finish. Overall, gorgeous, silky, pleasant yeasty and fruity aroma. Something special.

Bottle. Pours cloudy gold worth thick, foamy head. Good lacing. Refined aroma of pine and tar with a hint of green leaves. Taste of complex ave balanced mix of earthy tones and bubbly hops. Aftertaste had sweet tests of bubbly fruits. Good yeasts. Great stuff for enjoying with strong cheeses.
