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.

Pours a pale golden color with a fairly substantial head. Retention is pretty good and there is little lacing. Smell is of mild spice and yeast with a hint of tropical fruit. The taste is similar to that of the aroma with the fruits and spice mixing very well to blend inot a nice smooth finish. This is a nice light brew that drinks very easily and a very solid Belgian-style offering form Brooklyn and is now one of my favorite brews from this company.

BOTTLE. Cloudy straw to brown pour with zero head, looked like a cider.. Funky BO nose, yeastie, banana wheat mixture.. Generic wheat style flavour?? I got honey, banana, some sweetness almost like custard? ABV is hidden extremely well, the taste outshines all other aspects.. Sourced AB
