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

barn0216 (359) - California, USA - JAN 5, 2013
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.

tcane7 (1576) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle split with Chris at Toronado. Poured a murky orange-amber with thin off-white head. Nose of tart lemon, lactic acid, and some mild sweet malts. Very tart with flavors of oak, peaches, lemon rinds. Really tasty

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 18, 2012
Holzig-säuerlicher Beginn. Fruchtig, leicht nach Kirsche, rund. Die meisten Aromen verschwinden recht schnell wieder, die Säure wird milder, breitet sich dafür aber gut im Mund aus. Mild aber gut. 8/10/12/10/12/11

McGrupp612 (139) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2012
2007 bottle. Gold with a nice white head. Aroma of vinegar, leather, hay, sour apples. Not as sour as expected, hay, lemon, lactic zing, general funk in the flavor. This was a great American wild, but it fell far short of the hype.

Tmoney99 (10087) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Bottle shared by brew3crew. Poured a hazy golden color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky tingly texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer for style.

VsXsV (1896) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2012
Bottle at the Toronado. 2010 vintage. Clear, golden liquid with big fluffy white head. Aroma of sour apples, barnyard, lemons, lacto, fruity brett and some light oak. Delicious and balanced. Taste is dry (or very light sweet) with medium sourness and notes of apples and lemons. Also very balanced. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Nice to have tasted but I’ve had many belgian sours that’ve been better.

750 ml to snifter (BIG THANKS to brew3crew for bringing this to the tasting!). Looks great; yellowish-orange and hazy with ample carbonation and white lacing. Smells excellent; citrus, sour, and some oak. Tastes great too; much like it smells with a great mouthfeel. World class!

CitizenMeow (18) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2012
Vintage 2010 @ toronado SD. Yellow/golden in color, big white frothy head. Tart smell, very pleasant. Picking up some wine notes. Taste is amazing, increadible balance between the sourness & the sweetness. Leaves with oak flavors, marries well with the rest.

2007 bottle shared by Puddintane at Muckfest III...thanks Dave! - Pours hazy amber with a ring of white head. Lemon rind on the nose, tart and pretty puckering, with a creamy, yogurt malt base. It’s very mellow, with hints of wood, but overall it’s pretty simple, which is fine by me. Really smooth taste, citrus and pale malt, creamy yogurt, and a nice tart citrus rind finish. Super smooth in the mouth, with velvet carbonation. Glad I got to try this rare treat.

Drowland’s 4000th! thanks: light hazy orange no head some floating yeast. tart funk aroma with fruity apricots, taste of fruit apricots, leather, grass with strong roasted lemon, juicy. this beer is complex but very subtle. I let it sit to warm up in the snifter, more aromatic, perfumey, with tart sour taste. This beer was great but not as good as i hoped.
