It pours a hazy orange yellow, ripe grapefruit in hue. A full finger of white, foamy head settles only after it's suffered some sips, and slowly even then. Dribbles of lacing slather the inside of the glass.

The aroma drifts a swirl of tangy grain, mildly sweet, and nips of orange, lemon, green apple, and biscuit. A spray of clove and coriander compliment the citrus.

Upon tasting, the tangily sweet grain is instantly crisped by clove, coriander, a more vague citrus bite, and a peppery hop bitterness. The progression of flavors advances rapidly, leaving a dry, mildly bitter finish as a legacy. It's reasonably tasty, but it never really fills out the palate.

Light bodied, the carbonation peps the tongue and gives the coating some nice life.

As this is the only mention of a Lancaster Saison anywhere, the brewery website included, I have to conclude this is the one, retired or not. And if indeed it is, it's a nice effort, with the flavor maybe a bit short on character, but with the whole presentation ending up drinkable and pleasant. It's nothing to shout about, but it certainly does merit some mention.

Hazy orange in color with a 3/4" head and some light lacing developed during the drink. The nose picked up orange, yeast, and wheat, and other grain tones. The flavor was mild and refreshing as strong orange, spice, and mild bitterness were calmed by grainy malt texture.

Very crisp at the start. The finish was dry and crisp with citrus sticking to your tongue long after the sip. Overall a pleasant and refreshing brew that is nicely drinkable.

This arrived as a beautifully cloudy, lemon-yellow colored beer with a thick, pillowy head and moderate carbonation. There was a pleasant tang on the nose of spice and citrus. It had a light mouthfeel, but lemon was definitely present. The finish is dry, but a very black pepper flavor presented itself and seemed to fill my sinus cavity with its flavor. Very interesting! Finally, the Belgian lace was beautiful in my glass.
BTW, from the brewery's press release: "Named for the breed of field horses responsible for the development of Lancaster County's rich agricultural history, and still used by Amish farmers today. [Pronounced] (pay-shuh-rohn)."
