Picked this one up following the suggestion of a friend.
Golden, light yellow, and crisp looking. Slightly hazy. A fluffy, white head. Actually, as I poured my 2nd glass there was foam barely peeking out the top of the bottle. A nice, heavy foam lacing through the entire brew.
I could almost smell and feel the dryness before taking my first sip. Lemons and white grapes. Minimal hop notes.
A very sharp, dry bite at first. Heavy carbonation that mellowed by the minute. The flavor also turned away from the dryness and allowed flavors to really come out. Sweet and tart. Grapes and green apples. Very flavorful. I couldn't really pick out any substantial alcohol strength.
A bubbly, champagne-like mouthfeel. This did seem to fade as the beer warmed.
A nice beer from Brooklyn. I'd like to share this with others next time. Also, I'm looking forward to trying Brooklyn Local 2.

A: Foggy golden with tons of fine carbonation, 3 fingers of light yellow tinged white head. Good retention.
S: Sweet and caramel like, light fruity and floral qualities. Daisies, and cantelope.
T: Belgian yeast, light lemon tartness, la fair amount of sweetness, sight bitterness on the finish. Really hides the alcohol, and is much like a white wine in dryness. Sharp cheddar like quality.
M: A lot of fine bubbled carbonation, a little thickness to the body, but it comes across as light, airy and dry. Really well done.
O: An excellent brew. Great mouth feel, very mellow in taste, definitely a Belgian style beer. Bought in Boca Raton, drank on Deerfield Beach, July 15, 2014.
