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

Benzai (11865) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle [2007 vintage, first bottling] shared @ tasting. Hazy orange pink color, small off-white head. Aroma is a little faint but there’s a nice subtle fruity touch there with a slightly sharp fruitpeel sour-bitter bite. Tastes like that as well, a little touch of sour-bitter in the beginning but a very smooth subtle fruity sourness underneath. Soft, peaches, a hint of orangepeel. Nice!

thewolf (11732) - 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.

mcberko (11215) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
2013 Vintage. Bottle at Toronado, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out complex oak barrels, some funkiness, and dried light fruits (subtle apricots). Flavour is very complex, with oak barrels, a mixture of dry light fruits, and low-to-medium tartness. Very elegant, with all flavours working harmoniously. Finishes on slightly vinegary notes, as well as light fruits and oak. Definitely overrated, but certainly a delicious beer.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2010 Update: I got to taste the 2010 version at Lost Abbey and man this is a funked up release! Awesome horse blanket, barnyard. Really different this year! Bobby91 you are the man. Awfully nice to share a beer of this rarity. Damn fine. Dark gold pour wtih a white head. Vinegar up front wtih some tart apples, tropical fruit, lemon, wet earthy tones and some light funk. Flavor is sour, but the sourness does not detract from the fruitiness of this beauty. Its sour, don’t get me wrong. But the array of fruits that danced on my tongue with some soft yeasty notes provided a real drinking experience. But what would I know...I was drunk and I am not a sourhead...HAHA. I wasnt drunk when i tasted this one.

Scopey (10705) - 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.
