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.

Vignale (2069) - 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.

pino (27) - - MAY 6, 2014
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.

Foffern (1248) - Bodø, NORWAY - APR 26, 2014
Bottle at Piccadilly, Bodø. The colour is cloudy dark straw with a medium, off-white, creamy head. The aroma is sweet with hay, pale malt, Belgian yeast and some citrus and spices. Rich and sweet flavour that mirrors the aroma and the Belgian yeast is dominant with a touch of marzipan. Rich and soft mouth feel, and has a light to medium bitterness. A rich and sweet ale with a nice spicy touch. Well-balanced.

flying_pig (947) - SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2014
750ml Bottle from Utobeer, London (£12):
Sweet with pear & apples, a fruity aroma & some light base malts. Faint citrus, plenty of spice & some touches of floral on the nose as well with a slightly tart like aroma & some faint yeast.
Golden with a thumb-sized, foamy white head that holds great, sitting as a thick, 0.5cm, white lacing that still looks foamy & leaves a little lacing on the sides.
Spicy with various fruits that includes the apple & pear from the nose along with some banana & further sweetness from some pineapple plus yeast & citrus. Finally there is some light malts and a hint of pepper.
Light & fluffy on the palate but definitely not thin. Dry with plenty of spice plus the alcohol went almost unnoticed with it completely hidden by the taste for the most part. This one was frighteningly easy to drink for a 9% abv. beer & it went down a treat with and amazing balance that complimented the smooth mouthfeel and fine carbonation.

An amazing beer and one that definitely lived up to the hype and the price tag for once. Ridiculously easy to drink given the strength of it & was up there with some of the best Belgian beers of the style that I have tried in the past. This one is a must try and I look forward to sourcing a bottle of their Brooklyn Local 2 sometime soon.
