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.

Glazed9884 (207) - USA - AUG 16, 2007
Golden color, somewhat murky. white head, dissipates but keeps nice layer. Citrus smell, bit of hops. Has a full-bodied taste, smooth mouthfeel. Strong taste and smooth aftertaste. No alocol burn which is shocking for 9%. Very good taste but nothing too exciting.

mansquito (5583) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 12, 2016
Somehow after ten years of beer rating and also being aware of this beer, it is today that I am having it for the first time. Pour is orange with a frothy white head. Atoma is yeast, citrus, spice... smells very old school and Belgian. Taste is lightly sweet. Dry Belgian style bitterness. I appreciate what they did here.

Turboninja (569) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 6, 2016
[email protected] Light/medium slightly yeasty aroma with dry fruits like mango. Golden color with small white head and medium/light hazy liquid. Medium yeasty taste with dry fruits like mango, pear, apple, some malts and a hint of banana. Averagely balanced. Medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with wheat. Medium/light palate with light/medium carbonation. Overall, simple and lacks those earthy nuances in real Belgium products.

willisread (2800) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - NOV 3, 2016
Bottle shared at Gremlin. Thanks Tohara-san! Classic Belgian tripel nose. With flowery and estery notes: pear, apple and clove. Clean and crisp on the palate, but with a soft, creaminess. Light clove and pepper on the finish. Hides the abv well. One of the better American tripel clones Ive had. Superbly good.

BeerRenter76 (842) - Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Originally sampled on 12/11/08. Local 1 poured a nice looking cloudy,straw yellow body with lots of carbonation and a thick off white cap that left fairly thick lace. Aroma and flavor were both very subtle, on the light side even. Both had faint hints of fruits (apple and pear), yeast and some malts, alcohol was well hidden. Mouthfeel was smooth with a little dryness, overall it was decent beer thats worth a try, but i felt it was too light and didnt have enough character.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2016 25.4 oz bottle. A hazy straw, yellow color with a substantial bubbly white head. Significant effervescence visible. Aromas lemon, yeast, coriander, and dough. A bit of bitter citrus zest, yeasty, honey, white cracker, pear and banana esters. Fairly juicy body but a dry,crisp somewhat astringent finish.
