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

Rating 100. Only took a year and a half. This one is pretty descent. Nice funk character. Would like to have seen more funk though...dont know why but I feel like this one is lacking something...

Batch #2. Orange pour with a short white head. Aroma was musty, bready, yeast. Aroma of lemon, bread, yeast, light pepper, and sour fruits. Light body, sour/fruity with a sour/tart finish.

Fin (8319) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2009
Bottle at Craig’s bit tasting, Edinburgh, 21-03-09 thanks to Craig for hosting and for getting hold of some great beers. Pours warm gold with a white head. Tart and citric aroma touch musty and some wet wool. Feels nice and bubbly in mouth little champagne like in fact I get asti spumante (attended too many cheap and cheerful weddings where champagne was obviously not an option) Finishes quite dry and fruity. Very likeable. A8 A5 F8 P4 OV15 4.0

TheRealBastard (145) - The-No, California, USA - DEC 21, 2009
CARBONATED! That was my first response to opening this gem. Partied this one with Lagunitasfan. Aroma was yeasty and doughy. A smooth overall drink, seemed well balanced and not too rich. Tartness wasn’t over the top, and I grew more and more disappointed as the glass slowly swallowed my beer. Well done by my boy Tom (even though i haven’t met him).

MartinT (8550) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2010
My Bottom Line:
A lush tropical fruit jungle endlessly intertwines with calculated funk in this classy, compelling Sour Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the cloudy straw.
-Carbonation was rather low, making this rather juicy.
-This brew does not reinvent the Sour Ale wheel, but it is yet another excellent product from Lost Abbey. I just won’t buy it ever again if it stays at this price.
-The long sour finish is very pleasant; for reference, this might not be as intense as Cantillon or Hanssens products, but it is a gripping sourness nonetheless.

Bottle. Many thanks Dany!!

08 bottle shared by Beerlando, Thanks! Soft tartness with hints of honey, apple skins, floral notes as well on the nose. Pours a rich gold with no head. Not overly sour, citrusy with grassy notes, traces of honey malts, with a tart dry finish. Very nice beer!

Thanks to Beerlando for the world class brew! Dark yellow pour. Tart, super tart, vinegar, apple aroma. Very acidic, dusty, tart, lemony, dry, yet surprisingly drinkable. Very well done.

nimbleprop (5886) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Sampled at DC Epic Sour Tasting 2010. Pours a clear orange with very little spitty white head. Aroma of oranges, light hay, lightly grassy, cotton candy. Flavor is tart, lemons, grapefruit, apples, citrus peel, light candy, nectarines. Finish is dry, acidic and tart.

DalzAle (2010) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - SEP 19, 2010
Light straw yellow pour, some light carbonation and a lightly funky aroma. Flavor was initially light lemon, tart sour pear and a little yeast and butter on the aftertaste. A very good sour, but didn’t stick out as something I’d try to track down in the future again

Nose is lemon, strawberries, kind of metallic in it’s acidity like Hannsens beers. Flavor is acidic lemon, some bretty funk. A bit of malt remains. Solid stuff.
