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.

Koelschtrinker (14127) - 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

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.

Dark orange brown color, thick head. Strong licorice aroma and flavor. Grainy (because of the buckwheat used?). Soft pear flavor. Pleasant, but not too well balanced beer.
