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

Damned near perfect. So sour, and purposefully so I realize, but overwhelmingly at times. Otherwise, pure magic in a bottle. Very thankful to the bartender who went out of his way to try and hook me up with this bottle which for awhile didn’t seem like it was going to happen. Funk, apples, lemon, sourness all in the nose. Apples seemed to take over in the flavor department. So good.

Bottle. Hazy gold pour with thin white head. Very funky, "clean" as in centered on the wild/funky aromas, not fruity, light earthiness, maybe a hint of something lemony. Flavor is on par with other cali sours of the same style I’ve had (temptation, beatification) as a very clean sourness, lemony, with a dry finish. Very good, but not mindblowing.

Leighton (11900) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s 30th Birthday Bash - CBC Clerkenwell, London. Thanks to Bruce! Pours cloudy gold with a light, white foam head. Lemony tang in the aroma. Light to medium sweet flavor with lots of lemon, big tang, some orange. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Rich, sour finish, quite citric and acidic. Quenching and fresh. Lots of lemony bite. Great stuff.

thewolf (11262) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 30, 2013
Bottle. [thanks bobochamp]
Pours clear yellow with no head to speak of. Aroma has light cherries, vinegar, mild lactic, some bourbon oakiness and white wine. Low carbonation, lovely dry and tart mouthfeel. Flavour is tart, oaky, peach, cherries, but with a far too burning vinegar tartness to it. There is a lot of good going on, just not that good.

Bottle (750 ml). 2012 vintage. Huge thanks to Pier-Luc, Julien and Benoit for sharing this one! Pours dark yellow/straw color with a small white head and good lacing. Aroma is cheesy with funky, barnyard, oak and slight fruity notes. Taste is moderate sour with funky notes, fruits, oak, brettanomyces, leather and light sweetness. Mouthfeel is really dry and somewhat gueuze-like. It draw the saliva. This one is really hard to rate. There’s nothing that absolutely stand out, but the balance is great and the similarities with Gueuze are really interesting. Excellent American Wild Ale!

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.
