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.

750 ml bottle. Pours a clear amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted until about mid-glass and left no lacing at all. I like buckwheat, so I was looking forward to trying this beer. The aroma is a bit sour, which combined with the buckwheat, makes for an odd combination. The flavor is similar; the strong buckwheat flavor combined with the sourness ended up clashing. Add to that a bit of a soapy mouthfeel and the result is a disappointing beer.

Ruby brown in color, light brown head. Smell of spices and some yeast. Very carbonated, fruity flavor.

Eh. Not a lot going for it; semisweet, bready, with a slight bit of toffee and fruit, maybe the faintest glimmerings of sourness on the finish? Could be the La Folie I drank last week still lingering. Looks good, smells dull, and pretty much underwhelms all around. Good thing it was free.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2007
Bottled. Copper coloured. Nothing but celery in the aroma. Extremely sweet flavour of celery and other vegetables. A very strange and quite unpleasant brew.

Bottle. This beer is a little too sour for me. Sour heads might appreciate it. Smells nice and nice flavor. Just doesn’t taste right.

kevd193213 (841) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 16, 2010
750 mL bottle. Amber pour with a thin light tan head. Aroma of stale malt and ginger. Sour taste of malt, thin mouthfeel. Very disappointed given the price and style.

Bottled. Very pale, a little banana aroma, some graininess, but very anonymous. A hint of citrus. Boring.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2005
cloudy chunky orange/amber color,decent sized off white head that had a good hang time then faded slowly to leave a decent lace behind.The aroma was malty and some what fruity with a grainyiness coming through and a strong yeast side.The flavor was not at all that great,but then i’m not a real fan of these BDG’s but i’ll be fair in the rating.Fruity in flavor with some decent graininess and some light hops the flavor is a but much at first but it smooths out towards the end.I guess it has to be tryed atleast once but IMO i think i’ll leave this one alone and not try it again,the brew is just not my bag at all.
