Bull In A China Shop on tap at Bell’s Eccentric Cafe where ABV was listed as 8.2%.
Orange-honey colored, clear with a durable but small head.
Very faint hint of vinegar mars the aroma which is otherwise appealing. Hints of honey and fresh fruits.

Medium body and carbonation. Slight tongue burn.
T: good sweet/bitter balance.

O: Light barleywine; good but a bit disappointing.
