COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You’ve made it to 547 Haight Street. This destination is more San Francisco than Rice A Roni, Chinatown, and Lombard Street combined. Welcome to Broadway for brewers everywhere. Everyone who is anyone has poured their kegs here. For the last 20 years, this place has launched careers, confirmed legacies, and since 1987 the only name you need to know is David Keene. Take a seat. Tip Strong. Nod appreciatively and don’t ask stupid questions. Welcome to Big Daddy’s House known to most simply as "The T-Room." Here the bartenders are fluent in English, German, Flemish, French, Waloon and Czech. But they’re most known for their American Lip Service. Watch it. The lady with the jet black hair behind the bar eats idiots for lunch. At 547 Haight Street, you won’t find any Cable Cars except for this one. But if you’re standing outside the Dutch Doors of the World Famous Toranado, you surely found the most interesting place in all San Francisco. Its’ about RESPECT. Dave you continue to have ours. Here’s to 20 more years of punishing livers everywhere. Cheers Gina, Jim, Tomme, Vince and the Brewers of Port Brewing

2014 vintage 750 mL bottle at Toronado. The pour is a beautiful foggy golden cod with a nice white head that fades quickly leaving no lace. The smell is unbelievable. There is a great grape and sour presence. An awesome funk and little citrus is also present. The flavor is amazing. The sour is there, but allows the grape and lemon to come through without control. The oak exists a little on the back end. The mouth feel is prefect. Thin, but not watery, carbonated, but not champagne-y. The aftertaste is lingeringly sour and fruity. Such a damn good beer. I'm glad I got to try this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2015 Cloudy yellow. Lemongrass, horse blanket, straw. Significant pucker. A bit of apricot and unripe nectarine. Nice and fuzzy. Just a *tiny* bit dilute on the finish. Delicious. But also good to know the rating is largely novelty.

Bottle pour at toronado seattle. So happy that they finally got this beer, Been waiting for this one for a long time. Foggy cream golden pour, sour oak lemon juice, orange, and apple aroma. Taste is absolutely amazing, sweet hops, oak citrus, apricot, lemon, not to much sour, just the right amount, smooth finish, no bitter after taste. Absolutely loved this beer.

I always enjoy the opportunity to enjoy and rate a beer that the hype that surrounds it is destined to leave me less than impressed, because sometimes, it lives up. At this price, I wouldn’t try this too often, but for the first time, it’s a no brainer. 750 mL bottle split with Eugene, and poured. Enjoyed at the Toronado Seattle release. Pours a cloudy, light orange color with little to no head. Sour citrus fruit. Maybe a little apricot. Love just looking at the bottle. Reminds me of all the times I was wishing I was drinking this beer. Medium body with a nice pucker up sour lemon and white grape flavor. Well worth the wait here. My type of beer. Loved it.

older musty aged fruit with must and leather in an earwax funk. tart and tangy with a full enough body and slippery viscosity. some malt like though earthy and mellow with vanilla and really old fruit punch.

2009 bottle @ Steve_0 during my 10k tick fest. Pours a murky yellow orange appearance with an off white head. A little acetic, fair amount of funk, lemon, cobweb, lemon, white grapes in the nose. Moderately tart, very funky. Tons of lemon, dust, and dank basement notes. Low sweetness. Some herbal notes. Pretty juicy. Nice.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, big thanks to Aaron for the pour! 2009 bottle, hazy golden orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of lemon peel, oak, nice stone fruit, slight vanilla, hints of oak, slight earthy notes with a touch of acetic. Taste was a mix of stone fruit, candied apricot, tart lemon, oak, funk into a bit of earth, slight vanilla, hints of slight yeast, finishing with a slight acetic burn, tart.

Expected more. The apple cider vinegar kept this from an otherwise fantastic brew. Nice tartness some sour light fruits was good side. May be old bottle but it should have aged if that is case.
