COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
L’emploi de sarrasin comme farine de base de sa fabrication fait de cette bière une exclusivité. D’une robe brune et chaleureuse, la Sara, bière double fermentation haute, refermentée sur lie en bouteille, comblera les connaisseurs les plus aguerris. Une bière unique et de prestige qu’il faut découvrir.
This beer has changed ABV erratically during the years of production. Started at 7.5%, subsequently 6%, it stands actually (2009) at 9%. Only the brewery knows whether it will stay at this level, since they never bothered to signal differences, and always considered it to be the same beer...
