This beer smells like a lemon-lime syrup and cheap white wine. This is also present in the flavor of the beer. Very interesting.

tap offering @ ebenezer’s pub. tried side by side with regular nuova mattina. completely different beers. my understanding from the commercial description "dad" is that the regular nuova mattina was aged in pinor noir / gin barrels. the fluffy floral rustic saison character of the regular version is mulled over, replaced with a soft vinous red wine oak note, and a touch of soft spruce. well balanced. clean. easy drinkin. more of a red wine barrel aged sour ale with a low level of acidity. not much remaining of the original saison. dry beer. ky’s favorite of the 7 or so beers offered @ ebenezers. i preferred the regular nuova mattina to this. but this was good, and neate to try. nice.
