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

22/IV/13 - 75cl bottle @ De Hopduvel (Gent) - BB: n/a (2013-376) Thanks to Bobochamp (and thus to Kraddel as well) for sharing the bottle!

Little cloudy beige to murky orange beer, no head. Aroma: alcohol, sherry notes, marzipan, overripe banana if very subtle, grains, biscuit, hint of cognac even, some chloride, overall sweet impression. MF: soft to no carbon, medium body. Taste: bit chemical in the start, obviously sour, but also a sweet biscuity malt layer underneath it all, staying present, lemony wood, tobacco, hinting at calvados, apple skin. Aftertaste: chloride, chemical touch, lemony, vinegar acidity, apple skin, leaving you with a very dry mouth.

jackl (4596) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle @ Bruce’s birthday. Cheers to the main man himself for bringing this along! The pour’s a hazy light amber color with a slight white head. The aroma’s very tart lemon squash, a bit of attic and funk yeast. The taste is strong tart lemon. Hints of general berry fruit salad. General acidic tartness. Light cheddar cheese. Light, thirst-quenching stuff. Overall, I didn’t find this particularly nuanced, but it’s quite tasty indeed. An enjoyable experience.

Theydon_Bois (8668) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle at Bruce’s 30th celebrations, 08/02/13, big thanks to the birthday boy for sharing this one ! Hazed mid amber with a thin off white head that clears edgeward. Nose is sour tarte berries, wood, lemon, light vinegar notes, musty funky tones, sugars, burnt notes. Taste follows - lemon, citrus, sour apples, grandads shed, old beano’s, grape, light vinegar, wood. Medium in body with moderate carbonation lending towards a tarte and puckering finish. Great stuff!

Scopey (6827) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2013
2012 bottle at Bruce’s 30th, massive thanks to the birthday boy for this. It pours hazy golden-orange with a thin off-white head. The nose is sour lemon, Granny Smith apple, light funk, tart white grape, oak and subtle vinegar. The taste is fresh lemon, Granny Smith apple, sherbet, lip-smacking tartness, sour white grape, prickly citrus, tart apricot, oak and light vinegar with a dry, tart finish. Medium body, spritzy carbonation and moderate acidity. Flavoursome and very well balanced. Ok it’s not as complex as the best lambics, but it makes up for it in drinkability. Delectable.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2013 2012, thanks Justin! Whoa, massive lacto aroma burst right off the bat. Previous vintages don’t have this, and wow is it awesome. Settles quickly, not too carbonated, perfect. Huge citrus and yeast on the palate; certainly an American style sour. Damn, this stuff is fantastic. First rate.

2012 Bottle - graciously shared by Mike B on his birthday. Thanks Mike! Pours a clear golden with a medium fizzy head that dissipates quickly with a bit of lacing. Aroma is tart with notes of cherry, lemon, wood, and a bit of funk. Aroma profile really opens up as the beer rests. Flavor is about the same, a bit oaky, very light sweetness and medium to strong tartness. Light to medium body, prickly carbonation, almost champagne like in the mouth. Very clean well crafted beer that finishes dry. Very nice, although lacking a bit of the complexity of some of the Russian River sours, IMO.

Clear, pale orange/golden color, no foam or lacing. Tart cherry aroma with some funk. Sour cherry flavor, green apple tartness, dry, oakiness from the barrel aging, very slight funk. Very clean.
