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.

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.

Ibrew2or3 (7077) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Courtesy of Keifdog. Pours rosie copper with thin off white head and flat brown floaties. The aroma is moderate with some cherries and apples to go along with raspberry fruity tartness. The taste seems much the same but has a sugar engorged raspberry kool-aid quality to it. Hmm. Behind the kool-aid are muted notes of wheat and possibly malt.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 20, 2008
courtesy of Keifdog 750 ml bottle. Pours hazy brown, flat with little head. Aroma, buckwheat and yeasty. Taste, floral, yeasty, loaded with floating sediments. Nothing really special here, all we could get was the overbearing presence of the floating chunks.

Courtesy of Fonefan. It’s a beautiful, red-brown beer with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of sour malt, fruit and berries. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of slightly sour malt, yeast, berries, light fruit and candy sugar. It’s an OK buckwheat beer.

Bottle, bought @ Utobeer, London.
Pours a nice, chestnut brown with a medium, frothy, beige head. Aroma is malty, light fruitiness, yeast, pepper, coriander and cinnamon. Good mouthfeel, though a pretty high carbonation. Flavour is nicely malty, light chocolate and cocoa and a good spicy balance. (Mostly coriander). very nice.

Bottled@Fonefan. Deep amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is yeast, fruits, raisins and some mild sourish wooden notes. Flavour is quite sour wood, some yeast and caramel. Also as it warms up a bit it gets quite sweetish fruity. Nicely balanced.
