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.

MartinT (9319) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2005
The Lure:
A moving universe of floaties dallies below the corked apricot juice. Rustic supernovae have exploded, but long ago it seems, as mostly remnants are perceived.

The Festivities:
The momentous yeastiness was predictable, but not the pretentious, invasive carbonation. Fruity sweetness wades in the soft, dry cereals, but in the end offers little to please.

Transcendence:
Your apartment maybe well decorated, but if you never clean it...

sebletitje (9192) - 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.

Skinnyviking (8685) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
Bottle. High creamy and lasting white head. Hazy brown body. Mild caramel fruity aroma. A bit thin fruity malty caramel flavor with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a short aftertaste.

Ibrew2or3 (8155) - 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.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2008
Beige collar on unusual pinkish haze. Thick and yeasty. Nose of who knows what? Earth, apple peel, pepper, banana, definite wood. Ripe and estery. Liquorice in the mouth finishing quite bitterly, but preceded by heady apple-like fruit, and smoky/antiseptic coughsweet honey I’m not too keen on. Tasty-ish but not without flaws.

downender (7925) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2008
Bottle. Ruby red, with big carbonation and a decent off-white head. Aromas of wood, grain and caramel, with some hedgerow fruit. Flavour was slightly sweet, with some herb and wood flavours - it tasted like a Scottish traditional ale, and a decent dry finish. Enjoyable.

Plovmand (7849) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2010
Bottle obtained at Belgisk Bryg. Brown body with a creamy off white head. The aroma is yeasty with a lot of caramel and toffee notes. The flavour is spicy yeasty but dominated with caramel and fruity esters. Quite nice.

77ships (7834) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2014
33 cl. bottle sampled @ Barley Legal Tasting Room. Thanks to Kraddel! Ugly hazy reddish mahogany colour with small tanned head. Nose is very heavy on plastic, ridiculously so with light rotting dark fruits. Tastes heavily of plastic, rotting dark fruits, nasty thick yeast, rotting leaves aftertaste. Murky body, eh.
