I’ve been wanting to tick this for a while now. A rare Lost Abbey wild ale with an interesting 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 ”
2013 vintage poured into a Lost Abbey Teku.
Aromas are oak and spices, citrus, fruity wild yeast, and overripe fruits.
On the tongue is citrus and lactic, funky, wine, oak, followed by dry tannins, oak aftertaste, green apple. Mildly dry aftertaste. High carbonation with a nice easy drinking body.
A great beer indeed, one of the most balanced wild’s I’ve ever tasted. Worth breaking out the big guns to trade for it.
