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.

Wow, this is smooth for 9 abv. Lacks the strong yeast taste, though still present, of many Belgians. Similar to a saison.

SG111 (807) - New York, USA - APR 14, 2015
750 ml botle. Pours into a tulip with a preposterously large head. Murkey golden yellow calor, big white frothy head. Aroma is lemon, coriander, clove, wheat, slight orange, citrus, hop character, and quite a bit of Belgian spice character. Flavor is lemon, hops, citrus, honey, clove, really nice. A lot more hop character than expected. Not overly sweet but still characteristically Belgian. Very solid. Effervescent mouthfeel. Spice character lingers.

Brooklyn Local 1 on varsin kokeilullinen yhdistelmä eri maista olevia raaka-aineita: saksalaista humalaa ja ohramallasta, mauritiuslaista sokeria ja belgialaista hiivaa. Muistuttaa paljon voimakkaita belgialeja, kuten duvelia. Local 1:een on kuitenkin saatu hieman Brooklynille tyypillistä ominaismakua. Puukorkillinen pullo on hieman turhan iso (0,75) ja tyyris. Saattoi johtua myös paikasta ja ajankohdasta, mutta tällä kertaa tämä ei säväyttänyt ihan niin paljon kuin siltä odotin.

The better of the 2 Locals. Both are Fantastic. If you like fancy beers you must keep this in your collection. I'm not big on Saison styles but this beer is perfect. Any chance I could get my hands on this bottle I will try it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lawger (248) - SWEDEN - APR 3, 2015
Best before mars 2017 (no bottling date): Pours a cloudy gold with huge white head. Very weissbier-like scents with green bananas, lots of yeast, toast and some neutral tea leaf. Medium bodied palate. Despite a very clean palate, this has almost no heat at all for 9%. It's not as full bodied as a typical tripel, yet it hides the alcohol better than many. Impressive craftmanship here, but not very exciting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A foamy mess once you pour it into the glas. Smells like yeast and a regular blond. Taste is clean and fresh for the procent. A decent beer.

Like drinking a saison. Yeasty aroma with fruity sour finish. Spicy undertone. A little bit underwhelming. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle. Hazy orange body with a large white head. Lacing. Yeast, fruit and spices. High carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a golden yellow with I frothy white head that is fairly persistent. It has a yeasty aroma with malt and melon. The flavor is full on yeast and malt with a malty bitterness that balances the sweetness. The bitterness lingers in the palate with a fizz in the nose. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
