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

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2008 Tap at the GABF. Pours a hazy golden color with a white fizzy head. Tastes hugely sour, bretty, just funky and yummy. Aroma is bretty and sour (a little acidic vinegar). Very well balanced, nice yeast profile. I did not get a lot of the grapes and cherries and all of that that everyone else got. Definitely got the citrus and woody notes however. Very solid, but definitely in need of a re-rate.

Bottle, batch 2, via Dunk, huge thanks Steve! Pours a lightly hazy copper color with a thin beige head. Aroma is light funk, citrus, pepper, coriander. Flavor is sour, light fruit, vineous, vinegar. Palate is medium to light bodied, medium carbonation, finished lightly sour, light dryness. Decent, overhyped!

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 19, 2010
[2007 Bottle] shared by BDR, thanks! Pours a cloudy gold with a small and dissipating head of white bubbles. Aroma is remarkably bretty, light peach, tons of barnyard, lactic tartness, and very light gravel/mineral character. Flavor has a very strong malt backbone, which really surprised me for something with this much age and brett character, there’s a light, subtle tartness, slightly mineral, and the carbonation is mellow.

Sampled at the brewery for RBSG 08. Pours a clear amber with no head. Sweet and sour fruit aroma. Tart, sour taste, of citrus fruits and cherries. Lingering sourness. Very nice sour ale.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2009
Bottle shared at Muckfest 2009 in Lancaster Ohio. Aroma of spoiled bread. Flavor was sour apples, brown sugar, hint of vanilla, and sour tarts. Not nearly as horrible as I was expecting for a sour. But not sure what all the fuss was about this beer.

hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - MAR 8, 2008
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.

Review # 800 750 ml bottle served in a Lost Abbey Teku glass. 2012 vintage generously shared by kevanb, thanks Kevan! A: Pours a hazy yellow color with a white head forming on the pour. A thin white head forms on the pour and recedes to a thick wispy ring. S: Lactic and lemony. Minimal funky notes. Some straw with some lemon grass. Tart and slightly acidic. White grape notes and stone fruit flesh. T: The taste pairs pretty with the nose, although the sourness gets amped up a bit. Nice little pucker with some great fruitiness. Lemon grass with a minimal tartness. Lactic sweetness. Sweet oak notes with a nice light fruity flesh presence. Vibrant stone fruit notes. M: Light bodied with a great, lively carbonation. A little jowl pucker with the sourness. Dry finish. O: Delicate, but vibrant. Delicious American Wild. The fruity notes that came out were great despite no fruit being added. Thanks again to Kevan for sharing. Serving type: bottle 07-14-2013

From notes. First reviewed 10/31/2011. Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip. 2009 vintage. Thanks to Dunt for bringing this out to the whale tasting. This has a nice hazy golden yellow color with a great compressed creamy off-white head. The aroma is sour and funky. Lemon rind, peach, apricot, and grapefruit provide the fruity tartness, with a lot of great barnyard funk and hay. Light pale malt flavor, and a flood of fruity sour notes start off the flavor. Apricot, peach, lemon zest, and some grapefruit toward the end. Lots of lactic sourness, a bit of oak, and some vinegar create a full sour flavor. The mouthfeel is tart and quite acidic. Medium body with crisp carbonation. Lactic and vingeary. The flavor is great and sour throughout, and each flavor note is so robust, I really enjoyed this beer.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2008 Sampled at the 2007 GABF. This was by far my favorite of the festival. I had several samples.
