SARA has a dark red-brown color, is well hopped, and spicy at the same time. It has a hearty exclusive special taste with sour undertones, accentuated by a very rich aroma, which both come from the buckwheat.

DISCLAIMER: this is the brown, organic (biologique) version of Sara. Note that all versions of Sara are organic, also if it isn’t mentioned on the bottle.

33 cl. bottle sampled @ Barley Legal Tasting Room. Thanks to Kraddel! Ugly hazy reddish mahogany colour with small tanned head. Nose is very heavy on plastic, ridiculously so with light rotting dark fruits. Tastes heavily of plastic, rotting dark fruits, nasty thick yeast, rotting leaves aftertaste. Murky body, eh.

Bottle, colour between golden and light brown. Huge head, lasting quite a while. Toffee, malt attack, sour ending, overall a nice beer.

Pas commun, une bière de sarrasin, buckwheat beer... Plutôt ronde sur l'acidité du sarrasin, manque un rien d'amertume... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jamedra (722) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 28, 2013
Láhev 250 ml. Aroma je příjemně minerální s nádechem chmele a lehce citrusu. Pěna je nahnědlé barvy, hrubší konzistence, středně vysoká a nedržící. barva samotného piva je tmavší hnědá a kalná. Chuť má zemitý střed s kvasnicovým nádechem, finiš je jemný, banánový, lehce nakyslí a nedržící. Vcelku se jedná o výtečné, dobře pitelné originální pivo s osvěžující chutí a příjemným aroma.

snoworsummer (4700) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 11, 2013
From a big bottle with my name on it. Six or seven years old. Pours clear dark/medium brown with no head. Tastes like light raisin, apple cider, and wood, pretty tart. Visible sediment. Low/medium body and carbonation. Smells slightly sweet and tart, like cherries and dried fruit.

sonnycheeba (5078) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 10, 2013

Flavor is dry malts, dark fruit esters, faint hop bitterness, and some wheat; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

berntholer (1566) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUN 9, 2013
beige head that disappears fast and completely with lacing. cola clear colour. aroma of detergent, artificial lime, esters and some pear perhaps. taste is sour (like infected), white pepper but not spicy, esters and dark fruit. thin mouthfeel and quite a lot of carbonation. slight gusher after opening even though the beer was well chilled. has some elements that remind a bit of a rocherfort 8, although diluted. bottle 25 cl / best before 2015
