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

750, corked and baled. Thanks, SuzyGreenberg! Wow, what a rare gem to reel in. Cloudy medium amber with virtually no head or lace. Tart balsamic and strawberry nose, maybe a little moss in there as well. Creamy medium body. Vinegar tartness on the mid-palate, but, most shockingly of all, there really is not that much else going on on the mid-palate. We all expected a fair bit more flavor than we got out of this beer. Well-made to be sure, but hardly a triumph.

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.

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

On tap at Toronado 22nd anniversary. This hazy golden ale poured with a decent off-white head and a strong citrus aroma. There is a sour lemon flavor from the brett and a nice oak finish. It sticks to the palate in a very pleasant way.

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 (8661) - 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.
