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.

yespr (40475) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2008
25 cL bottle. Pours dark and hazy brown with a small off-white and creamy head. Fruity yeasty and sligh breadish/caramel malty aroma. Sweet and berry fruity initial flavour. Mild herbal and malty too. Lasting berry fruity impression. Nice brew. Lingering fruity and light finish.

Ungstrup (34362) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2007
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a huge, but due to high carbonation, fast disappearing ornage head. The aroma is sweet with notes of herbs and fruit, a great mixture of both - reminds me of a walk on a warm sunny summer day in southern Europe amongst citrus trees, olive trees, sage bushes, and loads of different other spice plants and bushes. Compared to the aroma, the flavor is boring, it is sweet malty with strong notes of berries, but also with a spicy note of sage and cloves, and the mouthfeel is a bit watery, before a slight alcohol burn end of the experience.

Bottle at home. Clear red brown coloured with a medium sized fast disappearing off white head. Spicy aroma of coriander and caramel with notes of dried fruits. Fruity flavour of caramel, coriander and chocolate with notes of spices and metal. Spicy finish. A bit watery.

oh6gdx (25392) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2008
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.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Dark brown - almost like a Dubbel, almost. Unclear with a gigantic, rocky head. Very delicate, almost perfumy aromas. Lots of fruity esters - citrus - and perhaps some caramel. Surprising light body - almost watery - but still manages to appear perfectly balanced. A very quaffable easy-to-drink beer. 100498

Bottled, thanks Bov!
Cloudy ammber with brief, cloudy head. Orangey aroma. Dusty, dry and fruity. Medium bodied with soft, rounded mouthfeel and notes of red berries. Discrete but complex.

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 29, 2002
Amber ale. Malt aroma, wet paper. Strange roasted grains flavour, not barley like, that provides a strong body. Nice palate, much longer than ’Joseph’, but still with the ’roasted’ note.

Koelschtrinker (17349) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 7, 2011
Dezent hopfiger Malzantrunk mit metallerner Note. Im Mittelteil herber, dieser Ton kommt gleichzeitig mit einer eher langweiligen Gewürznote auf, die sehr bald wieder von der metallernen Hopfigkeit abgelöst wird. Dazu leicht scharf und irgendwie auch etwas malzig. Aromenmischmasch ohne Harmonie. Test vom 14.10.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,8,8,7,12,7 - 8,05

Dedollewaitor (15553) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2009
25cl bottle @ Biertempel, Brussels. Pours dark brown with a small head and lacings. Lots of yeast, wheat and dark fruits. Taste is a bid muddy and grainy. Medium bodied. OK
