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

Straw coloured and a little bit murky with a thin ring of white head. Aroma is funk and sour with some grainy grassy field. My god there is a ton going on in the flavour. I honestly am not even sure what to say, sour all over with a lot of mustyness and funk. Very much a sour beer with some feelings of other styles going on with a long dry white wine like finish.

Part of the incredible line up at Monk’s Lost Abbey dinner. Excellent beer, tart and mildy funky on the nose, tart and estery both coming together and showing just enough restraint. Thomme and LA have mastered the interplay of flavors and providing intracate but drinkable beers.

This is my second favorite style next to IPS and when i had a chance to get this I jumped at it.This beer poured a orange to yellowish color with a thin white head and had a rather tart to sweet taste but not overly sour (AWESOME) it lived up to its hype to bad it had a limited release because i would love to get more.CHEERS!

Bottle. Sampled at Monk’s Cafe Lost Abbey Dinner 2/12/08. When I arrived at Monks for the dinner and saw this beer on the menu, I was incredibly excited. I thought I’d never get to sample this beer; leave it to Monks to prove me wrong! Pours transparent golden, capped with a minimal off-white head. Nose is tart, with some wild yeast, citrus, and some earthy and herbal notes. Aroma is a bit restrained, and not over-the-top funky. Flavor is tart, with some citrus, grass, wild yeast, tropical fruit and white grape notes adding complexity. Lively carbonation. Finish is long and primarily lactic. This is really well crafted and seems to emphasize some of the more subtle character of American sour ales, rather that going for intense, mouth puckering tartness. Another all-star performance from Lost Abbey! (Rating #500)

Sampled GABF 07. Beer is medium-hued bright yellow. Head is small, off-white, frothy and mostly lasting.<P>First impression on the nose is wild and tart. Malty with light notes of toasted grain and biscuit; Hoppy with moderate notes of lemon zest, light floral notes; Moderate yeast notes of vinous white whine, horse blanket and barn; Light miscellaneous notes of tropical fruit and vanilla.<P>The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic with an extra-long, light-moderately acidic, lightly sweet finish. Nice juicy dry linger.<P>The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2012 Batch 1. Bottle from deftim13. Very hazy pale body with a medium-sized, pillowy white head. Nice head retention with some lace. Lambic-like nice with horseblanket, hay, lots of citrus, some lemon, melon, green grapes, orange peel and cobwebs. The flavor is lightly sweet, moderately tart with lots of fresh citrus-oranges, lime, tangerine, red grapefruit, cotton candy, pale malts, grape skins and a dry oakiness at the end. Medium body is very soft with gentle, but moderate carbonation and a longish, tart finish.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Multiple samples, GABF 2007. Body is hazy light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly yeasty (barnyard), with notes of lemon zest, sour apple, pepper, clove. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Quite enjoyable. Reminds me of Sanctification and others in that vein, and you can’t really have too many of these kinds of beers if they’re done well. And this one certainly is.

bottle....huge thanks to andrew for sharing this rarity among rarities.....pours an opaque golden orange with a thin white head....aromas of sour and tart musty funkiness with notes of horseblanket and cheese. sounds somewhat off-putting but i mean it in the best way....flavors of grassy and tart citrus lemony notes and some orange. some more funk and brettiness intertwined with other earthy notes......all in all, i just wished that the flavors had more of a funk to it. i just can’t believe i just got a taste of it!

Sampled at "An evening with Pantanap #2". Big ups to Drewbeerme for bringing this, like Holdenn said I never actually dreamed I was going to be able to try this beer, thanks Andrew. Very hazy orange, lazy small white head. So funky, earthy, yeasty, slight sweet fruit aroma. Flavor is sour funk, that hits you in the back of the throat at first but substantially mellows at as it warms up, orange, sweet, dirty, slightly acidic, leathery, very drinkable and interesting american styling at a classic style. Medium body and pretty creamy, slightly acidic. Easily drinkable, wish it were more acidic, seemed to fade a little fast as it warmed, very complex.

holdenn (2077) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Sampled at "An evening with Pantanap #2". 750 ml. How amazing is it when andrew gets this beer, he immediately wants to drink only 1/4th of it, b/c he’d rather share. I never even hoped I could try this one. But here goes. Pours a cloudy orange with a white soapy head. Funky sour yeasty notes are the foremost notes. Layered in subtle complexities with yeast spices, medicinal notes, sweet undertones, and old cheddar cheese. Tart yeasty flavors. Orange, lemon, bretty, hop resin/grapefruit resin and flesh. Leathery flavors that become more tropical and grapefruity as it warms. Long slow finish with earthy notes covering the tongue. Not acidic at all. I was expecting more sour/acidic notes, but this is really drinkable. Extremely complex in subtle ways. Maybe not due the hype it received, but a really good beer.
