COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. This beer is a little too sour for me. Sour heads might appreciate it. Smells nice and nice flavor. Just doesn’t taste right.

750 ml bottle. Pours a rich brown with a ruby hue. Aroma is nutty, hoppy, somewhat fruity. Body is full and rich. Flavors range from light fall fruits, to somewhat of a dry wheat yeastiness, a slight citrus bite, and a sweet malty finish.

dutchbeerpages (1635) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2009
Arome and appearance don’t blow me away, but the flavor is very full wand sweet with a little bitterness to it. Had a 25cl bottle and the beer looks brown, so I’m guessing it’s this one.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Overly sweet sugarbomb. Tastes like sugary buckwheat cereal. A little sourness in the nose and flavor, it tastes like brown sugar water. Not much carbonation, pours brown, smells of must.
