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.

Hazy yellow out of the bottle with a lasting white head. Spicey coriander, clove and orange nose. Nice bitter orange peel, coriander, pepper and light yeast flavors. The alcohol is well integrated. A very enjoyable beer.

Pours a golden yellow color with large, bright white bubbles in the head. The head dissipates quickly, leaving a rather unattractive yellow, flat appearing beer behind. Fortunately, the aroma is yeasty with candi malts and a faint hop aroma that balances the profile nicely. The flavor is the typical Belgian Golden, but with some extra oomph from the higher alcohol content. Coriander, orange peel. sweet citrus, and even a little bit of white pepper. Pretty good, but not outstanding, overall.

Almost Chimay-like. A Belgian Blond style. Golden. Pours nicely. Good taste. Typical flavors you expect. The only drawback is that it doesn’t finish as good as it starts. But a nice beer. Well worth the month it took me to finally open it. Wish we got it around here.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - OCT 29, 2007
Huge white foamy head that was mostly lasting. Sparkling gold hue. Aroma of yeast, sweet malt, dried fruits, and crystal. Flavor is yeasty with the classic sweet Belgian crystal. Light in body and lively carbonation. Not bad, would try again.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - OCT 27, 2007
Bottle. Faint copper pour with an off-white head. Phenolic aromas and somewhat soapy. Incredible amount of spice. Somewhat hot and slightly astringent.

shadey (2142) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 24, 2007
2007 750ml bottle consumed relatively fresh. Pour is a clear effervescent golden. Head is a swirly layer of white cream. Attractive enough. The aroma is interesting. Its sweet but light. An alcoholic pineapple is the aroma. The alcohol presence is noticeable but not nearly overwhelming. Pleasant. Flavor is light, spritzy, and with a nice belgian yeast character. A little doughy, but dry. A very refreshing belgian ale. Not heavy at all. Well done.
