A: The beer pours a clear golden orange color with a tall white head.

S: Reeks of sugar. Cloying as any beer I've smelled with over ripe bananas and spices being the only break from the sugar (not that they really help much). Bubblegum and cotton candy only add to the problem.

T: This is so sweet, it's almost got a grainy texture to it. Sugar, sugar, and more sugar with cotton candy, bubblegum, and overly ripe fruits such as bananas and apples. A strong spice character of clove that is also unpleasant.

M: Syrupy with medium carbonation.

O: Unenjoyable on all fronts. I know it's sort of a dick move to bash this beer considering its purpose, but it's just not good.

Bomber into a Stone tulip. Golden-amber appearance, semi-hazy, with two fingers of pure white froth. Signature tripel appearance. The nose is bubblegum, pure bubblegum. I honestly can't pick out anything else. Whatever yeast they use for this stuff, I'm not a fan. Tastes like a bubblegum sandwich; light breadiness mixed with shitloads of bubblegum. The mouthfeel is sweet from start to finish; where's the dryness? I've never been a huge fan of Stone's attempts at Belgian ales, but damn, this one just sucks.
