Dark brown colored with little light brown head. Grainy aroma with chocolate and sweetness, some dark fruity plummy note here as well. Medium bodied, carbonated palate. Flavor is more watery with lemon, grains and some cardboard, aftertaste has thin plum, with lasting carbonation. daje (4548) - NORWAY - MAR 30, 2011
Bottle. Hazy red brown color with big light brown head. Good looking! Sweet aroma with apples and malt. taste of malt, hay and some hops. Some spices, but not as much as I expected. craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2011
tasting on 3/19/11. deep red pour with no head. sweet dark fruit nose with light sherry notes. medium body with sweet fruits, raisins, dates, and grapes. the finish falls short - but sweet. DrnkMcDermott (3159) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2011
Taster from bottle. Finally, my last of 39 ratings from the Glunz Beer Expo, April 2010! I’ve got the bottom of the bottle in my sampler, so it’s very hazy, maybe just from yeast at the bottom. Brownish, very thin ring of foam. Nice malty, and yes a buckwheat smell. Tastes like a brown ale. some sourness to it. Possibly some honey and Brett in the mix. Spicy. Pretty hearty. A lot of ale fruitiness but not estery. manuchampions (1256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2010
750ml bottle from 16th St. Liquor in West Vancouver. Pours a cloudy caramel colour with a thin creamy white head. Aroma of crème brulée, buckwheat and yeast. The flavour is the same, crème brulée, buckwheat and yeast. The body is light with a creamy texture and lively carbonation. Finishes well and tastes slightly boozier than the 6% alcohol. Pretty good.

Sampled at GCBF ’10, pours cloudy reddish brown. Aroma of grains and caramel malts. Flavour is more dominated by the grains, with wheat and some dark malt. Better than the regular Sara. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Bottle from Mitra Bergen. Dark cola brown body with slight head. Nose of caramel, toffee and sugar. Quite yummy full flavour. Bit watery in finish but quite nice. Defreni (3303) - Husum, DENMARK - APR 17, 2010
Flaske: Flot mørk rødbrun klar øl med et flot skumhoved. Let metallisk duft med et tydeligt præg af gær og malt. Smagen er igen metallisk med et godt karbonationsbid men ikke så interessant smag. TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 13, 2010
