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.

Rustyham (1728) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2009
This foremost tastes like a mix between a good apple cider and Le Fin Du Monde. It’s major effervescence leaves a wonderful sting in the back of your through as your mouth is bombarded with fruit flavors and spices. A wonderful, gentleman’s cologne wafts off the glass- this is a man’s candy. 8.99 for a 25.5 oz at Whole Foods Market.

radio_nowhere (882) - Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Corked bomber into Trappist glass, hazy amber tinted golden color with white head. Aroma of deep bready malt, honey, fruity (apples, pears, orange, lemon), white pepper and lightly herbal. Taste adds notes of grain, citrus zest, dried fruits (figs, apricots), banana, clove, light funk, tart with faint grassy hop bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, lively with light citrus-leaning fruitiness lingering. Nice fruity Belgian strong, very good.

AgentAle (724) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014
Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, lemon grass and apple. Taste is sweet light malts, honey, biscuit, plum and apple. A bitter hop profile arrives fairly quickly and is balanced nicely with the maltiness. Appearance is a slightly hazy straw body with a fluffy pearl head that retains fairly well.

Sweet with some bitterness. A tiny hint of sour taste. Medium body and carbonation. Fruit. Raisin, ripe apple, some peach and pear and a very slight hint of lemon flavour. Very good.

Kita (1129) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle, 0.75l, shared with friends. Hazy golden color with medium creamy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of yeast, lemon, orange peel, some berries and hint of herbal hops. Taste starts with moderate sweet grainy malt, follows by refreshing fruity and yeasty acidity, spicy mouthfeel and well hidden alcohol level. Medium body, sticky texture and lively carbonation in palate. Nice one, although it hasn’t completely met my high hopes...

alex_alkis (305) - SWEDEN - SEP 13, 2014
Citrus and butterscotch in the aroma. The flavor is dominated by a tone of alcohol with some herbs and citrus again. A well made belgian strong ale!

Bottle. Dark golden body with a huge white head. Aroma of fruity yeast, wheat, grass. Taste is mild spicy with banana and a faint citrus note. Light bitterness, sweet honey taste. A bit short finish, which is pretty sweet with yeast. Good, not great.
