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.

kryon (2823) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2013
pours dark reddish brown with low light latte colored head Aromas of??? Cherries, perfume, wee bit stale, overall intense sweetness Taste is better than aromas. Cherries once again, low carbonation, low to medium bodied, low bitterness. Wee bit watery and quite abrupt ending.

Martinus (4560) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2012
Clear dark brown beer, purple hue, white head. Aroma of caramel, cereal, sugar, candy and bubblegum. Sweet flavour, malty, grains, fresh sour touch. Sweet finish, light buckwheat touch.
Was expecting more pronounced buckwheat in aroma and flavour. It is quite drinkable though, albeit not really special imho.

Une bire pleurer!!! Une des plus jolies tiquettes de Belgique, et une des bires les plus nulles (en dehors des pils, bien entendu...) Je ne sais pas si le sarrasin mritait pareil gifle, mais vraiment cest russi Pour ma part, jaime autant fumer du bambou ou pisser dans un bocal, mais cette bire ne mrite mme pas une mention dans la nomenclature belge. A pleurer un ocan complet, tant la nullit est attristante. Pas dodeur, pas de got, pas dquilibre, un vague amer qui vous flanque le mal de mer. Qua-t-on cherch dans cette bire? Jai beau chercher, je ne peux pas comprendre... Je crois quil faudrait 10 volumes dencyclopdie pour mexpliquer lintrt de ce liquide. En bref, je suis catgorique, ceci nest pas de la bire...cest une connerie.

Chudwick (2921) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - MAR 28, 2012
750ml bottle - pours dark ruby red with quickly diminishing beige head. Nose is malty (caramel and grain) and a bit spicy. It almost smells like port. Flavor is hoppy (herbs and resin), soggy wheat bread, toasty and a bit like dough with noticeable alcohol. Burpy. Taste is sweet becoming quickly bitter and a little sour. Aftertaste is apples or cherries. Dont like the graininess. Texture is watery with a bit stickiness. Needs to be paired with fruity pies.

NordicV (1992) - Malm, Sweden, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2012
Mahognyfrgad l med ljusbrunt livligt skum. Doftar inte speciellt mycket. Ngon alkoholstma och antydning av kryddighet. Trkigheten gr igen i smaken. Inga fel, men inget kul.
