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 @ ebenezerís 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. kyís 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.
