COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Here in Brooklyn we’ve combined European malt and hops, Belgian dark sugar, and raw wildflower honey from a New York family farm to create Brooklyn Local 2. Our special Belgian yeast adds hints of spice to the dark fruit, caramel, and chocolate flavors. After 100% bottle re-fermentation, this ale reveals a marvelous dry complexity, enjoyable by itself or at the dinner table.

MartinT (8024) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2010 My Bottom Line:
Fruity and spicy yeast notes manage delicate chocolate and herbal hops in this authentic, nicely attenuated Belgian-style Strong Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A fluffy head of foam decorates the drak brown.
-This felt like Trois-Pistoles light at times, even though it’s pretty much the same abv.
-Some alcohol is felt, but it’s never bothersome.
-The important yeast character feels a tad vegetal at times.
-This is as well made as most Brooklyn products, but in the end, I didn’t feel compelled to go back for more. Local 1 was much more distinctive and satisfying, in my tastes.

Ungstrup (29665) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2009
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with an orangey head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with notes of fruit and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, fruit, alcohol, and honey, leading to a dry and spicy finish. Interesting.

Guerde (1177) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2009
(bottle from OSLO) Pours dark brown with a large light tan head that settles to a medium cap with a good amount of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral honey, pepper, and orange peel that becomes much stronger as this warms up a bit. There’s a bit of bread in the smell too, but it’s not nearly as bombastic as some Belgian beers can be. Further warming reveals some carrot cake, dark fruits, and candi sugar along with a faint hint of booze. The taste is quite sweet with ample candi sugar, caramel, dark fruits, that switches to a dry and yeasty finish with just a faint hint of bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium with very lively carbonation which was a bit distracting. All in all, another solid Belgian from Brooklyn. Thanks Al!

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2009
Bottle 75 cl. Slightly hazy amber golden with an off-white head. Intense aroma of overripe fruit and yeast. Medium body, heavy carbonation and lots of overripe fruit being the dominant flavour combined with some brown sugar. Rather alcoholic finish. 160509

thewolf (11209) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2009
Bottle @ Ølfestival, Valby, 2009.
Pours lightly hazy redish amber. A smll creamy, off-white film haed. Sweet aroma, some strawberries, winegums, yeast, raisins, vanilla, wheat, coriander and slight hops. High, prickly carbonation, a bit weak mouthfeel. Flavour is rather sweet, pretty malty, some biscuit, a touch of vanilla, plums and Belgian sugar. Okay, but Local 1 was much better.
