Had on tap at Birreria Paradiso in Georgetown.
Small wisps of a white head sit atop a honey-hued liquid. Very little retention or lacing to speak of.
The nose is very subtle... all I could really detect was clove and a tiny bit of a bready malt.
Clove plays a very strong role in the flavor as well. Also, light fruits and an innocuous, but not terribly exciting bready malt flavor. Spicy kick going into the finish, which features a lemongrass flavor and is quite crisp.
Overall: somewhat refreshing and satisfactorily complex, but not exactly what I was expecting. I wasn't blown away.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured a deeper cloudy gold with a thinner white head. The head lingers on leaving some sticky soapy lacing. The smell is quite good, with some nice deep fruity esters and hints of spices. The taste hits it just right with some notes of grain, banana and sugar. It has a thinner body and is a well-made saison.
