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

(GABF, this was the 2009 vintage) opaque yellow pour, lasting tan head. Nose of funk, apricot, lemon, cherries and tangerine. Taste of lemon, tart tangerine, chewable vitamin, and lactic acid. It reminds me of a gueuze, very tart linger on the palate. Nice sour!

750 ml bottle shared at Toronado (SD) - My small pour was a clear light golden color with a thin white head. Aroma was tart esters and wood. Well, so was the flavor. The tart esters really lingered in the finish. Medium body. A big thanks to Nick and Eric for the opportunity to try the bottle they bought.

Vintage 2008, shared at Woodshop Classix
Appearance: Pours a cloudy gold with no head.

Aroma: Lemons and acetic funk.

Taste: Metallic bitterness, funk, lemon sourness and a smidgen of sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Medium no carb tingly.

Overall: Wow, very luck to have tried this. Will give my third nut for a bottle all to myself. Or maybe 40 bucks at Toronado. Either or.

markwise (4606) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2011
2007 vintage, courtesy of PaulUnwin. Thanks a million for getting and sharing this bottle, Paul. Cheers! Pours a somewhat hazy yellow-orange with frothy white head. Nose is vinegar, lemon, prickly tartness, tart citrus, some oak, and some mild funk. Flavor is similar with tart citrus and acetic all over. Oak and some bretty funk come in later, finishing with more lemon and tart citrus. Very enjoyable.

Bottle at Bruce’s 30th celebrations, 08/02/13, big thanks to the birthday boy for sharing this one ! Hazed mid amber with a thin off white head that clears edgeward. Nose is sour tarte berries, wood, lemon, light vinegar notes, musty funky tones, sugars, burnt notes. Taste follows - lemon, citrus, sour apples, grandads shed, old beano’s, grape, light vinegar, wood. Medium in body with moderate carbonation lending towards a tarte and puckering finish. Great stuff!

JulienHuxley (3936) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2013
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.

htnicholas (50) - California, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle (750 ml). 2012 vintage. Pours deep yellow straw color with a small poorly retained white head and some lacing. Aroma is slightly funky, with barnyard, oak and slight fruity notes. Taste is not too sour but with complex funky notes, citrus, oak, Brett and balanced sweetness. Mouthfeel is really dry, tart, and crisp. An outstanding wild ale. I loved it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled at Woodshop 2011. Pours a hazy bright golden color with minimal head. Aromas of grapefruit, lemonade, acid, medium funk, overripe lime. The palate is nice and drying, but not overly acidic, with flavors of tart peach, pink lemonade, slight funk. Well balanced.
