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

Bottle 75cl.
[ Courtesy of KimJohansen ].Unclear medium orange color with a average to large, creamy to frothy, excellent lacing, fully lasting, white head. Aroma is moderate to light heavy citrus sour, fruity, apricot, peach. Flavor is heavy sweet and moderate to light heavy acidic with a average to long duration. Not at sour and tart as i expected it to be, a nice sour but some of the belgium stuff i much more complex. Body is medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. [20081122]

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Light orange hue, large white head sustains, fair clarity and lacing. Nose of highly acidic dark fruits, tart sourness, farmhouse. Flavor is lactic sourness and sweet fruits, strong bret funk quickly transitions to oak, spices, vanilla, finishes sweet. Medium-bodied, smooth texture, moderate-high carbonation. Big sour ale that hits fast with sourness and yields slowly to a sweet fruit balance, smooth finish lingers on the palate.

Bottle courtesy of golubj, who is the man. Color of murky, dull gold. Aroma of funk, fruit, must, wheat, wood and citrus. Nice. Flavor was very similar, with a pronounced funky, barnyard element. A tad vinegar and lemon as well. This was very enjoyable for the style. Nice palate.

BrianK (200) - Livingston, New Jersey, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Rating 100. Only took a year and a half. This one is pretty descent. Nice funk character. Would like to have seen more funk though...dont know why but I feel like this one is lacking something...

after4ever (6640) - Brier, Washington, USA - DEC 27, 2008
750, corked and baled. Thanks, SuzyGreenberg! Wow, what a rare gem to reel in. Cloudy medium amber with virtually no head or lace. Tart balsamic and strawberry nose, maybe a little moss in there as well. Creamy medium body. Vinegar tartness on the mid-palate, but, most shockingly of all, there really is not that much else going on on the mid-palate. We all expected a fair bit more flavor than we got out of this beer. Well-made to be sure, but hardly a triumph.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2009 Bottle pours an orange body with a thin off white head. Plagued by sour vinegar and a light oakiness, and a mouthwatering aroma. One of the first sours i enjoyed. Lemon, cheese, and sour milk. lightly dry with grapes. Interesting. My first taste. 4.0 Pours a golden peach body with a thin lacing. Citric, tart, peach. Lightly tart and sour with a light woodiness. Dry with no etoh detected. Its no yellow bus. 4.1

KimJohansen (10347) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2008
Hazy orange with medium beige head. Sour aroma with notes of barnyard, orange, vinegar and wood. Sour flavour with notes of wood, barnyard and grapefruit. Sour finish. Misses the pureness that lambic has. Not dry enough.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2008
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of KimJohansen. Pours a very hazy and opaque golden with a creamy head that leaves a curtain of lacework. Fresh, sharp Brett aroma. Medium body with very dry vinegary notes and a dry, lightly bitter and sourish finish. A very decent beer, but not really on par with the very best Belgian sours - and yeah, I know this technically isnt a sour. 221108

Hazy golden orange color poured at Obriens rare botltle tasting. Lovely aromas of peach, lemon, and tangerines. Smooth on your tongue. Tart sourness with a complexity of flavor. Fantastic brew.
