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.

Light fruity Belgian nose, pretty complex flavor profile. Bitter finish, sweet, fruits, caramel. This is stupid. This is tasty fresh Belgian style however.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours a hazy golden with a huge, white head. The aroma is clove, spice, and fruit. The taste is the same with a little bit of hops, banana, brown sugar, and alcohol. The alcohol is noticeable. It wasn't super smooth. There was a lot of flavor though.

From Mar 2008 I got bottles in trade with nutbrown & yobdoog. Thanks Alan & Trevor! This pours from 750ml caged and corked bottle a slightly hazy gold with a 1 finger head of foam and some good lacing. The smell is all spicy and fruity with some clove, pepper, yeast, and a touch of banana. Nice. The taste is very smooth drinking for the alcohol but it's packed with flavour. First thing I notice is the spice from clove and pepper followed by a nice yeasty presence and some banana(very light) and a bit of candy sugar. I like the finish here as it has a slight citric kick to it making for a very pleasing aftertaste and some nice balance. I really can't say that the abv is obvious at all and that makes for some great drinkability. It has a light mouthfeel to it and the carbonation is medium. I like sipping on this BSPA and I'm very glad I have another bottle. Well worth the effort to get some so please, do so. ;^)
