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 isnt mentioned on the bottle.

bierkoning (13054) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2004
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.

From the Sharp Edge Beerfest a good light brown color, very light and easy drinking... very "soft" for a belgian ale...

Brilliant light organic beer. A bit on the orangish-brown side with a nice lemony aroma and refreshing taste. Some light sour undertones.

Shag (2941) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 18, 2004
Apperance is a reddish orange with a large head. The aroma is sour cherries and some earthy scents. The flavor reminds me of a Flemish sour ale with some sour cherries, musk, and spices present in the flavor. The mouthfeel is a little thin but it has a very good taste. It was an enjoyable first date with Sara, I wonder if she will call later?

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.

Well Sara is a lively lass, well carbonated and topped by a thick, flowing prodigiously locked tan head. Copper in color with perhaps a light haze to it. A solid grainy, grassy aroma, along with a bit of interesting spicy character is found in the nose. As I explore the aroma a bit more I detect a nuttiness and some fruity notes, with banana and peach predominant. Sara has a lightly sweet taste up front and finishes with a bit of astringency. There is a certain mustiness here and a certain spiciness as well. This beer has a certain something to it that I can't quite place (it is a note in the aftertaste that is just different). If not for this note, this would be a pretty straight forward beer. This beer does need a little bit something more to balance out the up front sweetness. Overall, I do like this, it could just use a bit more complexity.

Nice depth of flavor when compared to the Silenrieux Joseph. Appetizing dark amber, cloudy. Full bodied, slightly sour.

hotstuff (5077) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 10, 2004
Corked and caged bottle. It had a large sized ivory head that was foamy with fine-medium sized bubbles that completely diminished. The body was slightly carbonated and hazy with a mahogany hue. The nose was malty, sweet, spicy, some banana and clove notes as well as alcohol. The flavor of this beer was a little sour, malty, caramel and some clove. The mouthfeel was smooth and this beer's lacing was sparse. Worth a try.

This corked and caged bottle poured a very large head of mostly lasting light brown colored foamy bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body was very hazy so as to be semi-opaque and dark brown colored with no hope of seeing any carbonation. The aroma is very nice and full of caramel and brown malts with a mild vinuous note. The mouth feel is semi-dry tingly and smooth with a lingering brown beer finish. The flavor contains notes of brown malts caramel clove and other mild spices.
