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.

beastiefan2k (3547) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - DEC 25, 2008
End of the year rate-a-thon. 750mL cork and wire poured into a large Duvel tulip. Cork pops with authority and pours with a humongous khaki colored head. It fades slowly and leaves a heck of a sticky lacing on the glass. Never fully fades and stays a cm or 2 thick, completely covering the surface. The body is a brown color with reddish tints. Aroma is a very airy Belgian yeastiness. Behind that is a liquid black bread aroma, which is earthy and slightly sweet. A dark cereal grain aspect makes up the flavor. Flavor dissipates quickly yet the carbonation is not as strong as expected. Easy drinking with a cereal, lightly sweet aftertaste. A cool beer, I guess the buckwheat comes through through the cereal aspect.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Bottle, pours just like a coke, dark brown, very fizzy, with a brown head that fades as it settles in the glass. Aroma is of dark sugar, cinnamon, wheat, and light alcohol. Taste is light, very light bitterness, some carmel and again wheat are at the forefront, but what is with the carbonation? It’s like drinking a soda. Extremely fizzy, the beer bubbles as it touches my lips. Odd. I liked Joseph better, this isn’t terrible, just not my thing.
