L’emploi de sarrasin comme farine de base de sa fabrication fait de cette bière une exclusivité. D’une robe brune et chaleureuse, la Sara, bière double fermentation haute, refermentée sur lie en bouteille, comblera les connaisseurs les plus aguerris. Une bière unique et de prestige qu’il faut découvrir.
This beer has changed ABV erratically during the years of production. Started at 7.5%, subsequently 6%, it stands actually (2009) at 9%. Only the brewery knows whether it will stay at this level, since they never bothered to signal differences, and always considered it to be the same beer...

ljthiessen (1348) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, - JAN 16, 2014
Bottle. Light nose, some caramel and fruity notes. Nice subtle sourness and tartness - a little different for the style. Light-bodied and not overly flavourful, but interesting, well balanced and tasty.

@ Eddan 16-12-3: lätt kolaton med spår av mandel. Ganska intetsägande och i stort sätt bara söt.

2012 bottle opened Xmas 2015. Murky red brown w ok head that does not last. Strong dried fruit and candy sugar aroma. Sweet malty taste. Figs, dates, brown sugar. Kind of musty. Not sure how well it aged. A bit too sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
