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.

JonMoore (1807) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle - hazy golden colour with large white head. Aroma of citrus hops, Belgian yeast, tropical fruit, candy. Flavours similar, malty, sweet, fruity, spicey. Medium bodied, quite highly carbonated, foamy mouthfeel. Very good and very nice with the un-pasteurised Roquefort cheese I’m enjoying with it.

More akin to a triple than a quad. Just look, taste and smell. Victory golden monkey likeness with a bit more body to it. It is good but too foamy ridiculousness. I can drink the bottle and still walk. That's ok. I drink fast too. But, definitely Belgian yeast..,though a twice removed brother...I can sense the lack of true hardcore Belgian yeasty..,think westy or chimay for comparison. Believe me it is drinkable but only for the pussy newbie to Belgians. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly hazy golden with 2 finger big bubble head. Nose is yeasty, light boozy sugar aroma. Taste starts with malty sweetness then opens up with the yeast and a little bitterness kicking in. Great finish.

750ml bottle poured into nonic. Clear yellow-gold beer with two fingers of active fizzy white head. Spots of lacing are left on the glass. Tropical fruity esters, pears, apples, pepper, clove, and alcohol make up the aroma. Taste is candi sugar, orchard fruit, and honey sweetness up front, followed by a little earthy bitterness and alcohol heat. Medium-plus body, slick texture, champagne carbonation, crisp sweet finish.

AKORN (95) - Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Ale aroma with fruity, lemon and spices. Very thick head when poured with a nice light gold color. Spices, raisin, malt and sweetness on the palate with a very light bitterness on the end. Taste light and refreshing for 9% ABV. Not a big Belgian Ale fan, but I like this one. Nice beer!

Vári Művek. Kinézetre olyan, mint egy jó sűrű szűretlen búzasör, csak a habja vékonyabb, gyorsabban olvadó. Illata fehérboros, élesztős, gyümölcsös pezsgős. Íze is igen pezsgős, gyümölcsös és élesztős, édeskés és malátás. Könnyű,nagyon buborékos. Utóíze édeskés és mellette igen száraz, gyakorlatilag tényleg egy igazi sörpezsgőnek tűnik az egész. Nem rossz, de nem választanám mindennapi italomnak.
