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.

The pour produced an average sized (two finger thick) head with a creamy off white color. The head slowly fades down to small ring of slick lace. Underneath the head is a light golden honey colored liquid with a hazy appearance and streams of tiny bubbles rushing to the surface. The aroma is full of fruity, estery yeast, sweet malts and some light, funky phenolic notes. The flavor up front it has candy like sweetness with light tropical fruit notes, some pear, apple, and light malt as well as some funky phenolic notes. In the middle it starts to dry a little and we add some mild warming alcohol and mild spicy/leafy hops to its malty character. It finishes much dryer than it started but still with some residual sweetness mixed into mild hop notes. The palate is full and lively with plenty of carbonation.

gegwilson (1157) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle from Trembling Madness, York. Pours golden with a white head. Stoarts off pretty sweet with grass and yeasty notes. A much more bitter finish. Quite spicy too. The alcohol is fairly noticeable. Ultimately I found this a bit lacking in body. Nice but not amazing.

An OK offering and a little under-impressed. Malty and sweet aroma with a hint of Belgian yeast. Dark golden color that appeared effervescent. Medium weight and crisp palate. It had smoothness. Nice blend of flavors that ranged from caramel malt, slight hop bitterness and spice from the yeast. It had a slight boozy presence as well and seemed to be a blend between a Belgian strong and a tripel. Nice but they have better.

After the cork almost took off my head, the beer pours a hazy yellow with a foamy white head. Has a citrus, wheat, yeast, and spice aroma. Aroma is more subtle, with citrus, spice, and a touch of bitterness. Has a full body feel and goes down smooth. Pretty enjoyable.

Pours hazy golden with a large white head. Smells lightly fruity, hints of bread and yeast. Taste is fruity, mild citrus, hints of spice. Full-bodied with a slick texture and average mouth-carbonation, Brooklyn Local 1 finishes a lingering hint of Belgian-like spice.

Seffle (164) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle from Systemet. Nice champagneplopp. Pours a cloudy golden amber with a persisting white foam. Highly carbonated. Nice aroma with banana, citrus and bread. Sweet and sour in the first taste with a nice hoppiness in the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vignale (2060) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2014
Flaska från systembolaget, ca 1 år gammal. Gyllengul, pärlande vätska, stort vitt skum. Tydlig belgisk doft med jäst och kryddor. En lätt frisk, ren, måttlig kryddad trippelliknande öl som jag verkligen gillade. Citrus, jäst och kryddor skapar karaktär, frisk och lättdrucken men med rejäla och rena smaker. Riktigt bra.

Pours a cloudy straw yellow with a thick off white head that holds up nicely in a glass. Head settles to a steady half a finger that stays to the last sip. Smells of slight citrus and hops. Starts with sweet malt and citrus and ends with a nice hoppy bitterness that leaves the pallet rather quickly. Very well balanced between malt, German hops, and Belgium yeast.
