2009 vintage, from a bottle into a snifter. The creamy off-white head dissipates at an even pace. It leaves a little lace, but retains a ring around the edge, a film on the top, and with a swirl is easily revived. The liquid portion of the image is a chameleon changing with the light, brown, burgundy, red, and quite clear...limpid. I love this beer. Distinct hops, and malts sweet and grainy and fruity, define the nose. I really don't have the palate to do the beer justice...I'll try, again and again. Wonderful mouth feel creamy and smooth with carbonation enough to keep it lively. Bigfoot, fresh, has distinct hoppy bitterness, and hop flavors, that work really well with the sweet flavor of malt. There are flavors of caramel and fruit, sweet caramel and fruit. The hoppiness and carbonation help the beer to not be cloying, each sip makes me want another.
