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 isnt mentioned on the bottle.

Hazy brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is yeasty (green apples) and slightly acidic (appleish again.) Flavour is fruity, yeasty, slightly acidic and wheaty. Body is fizzy and rather light. Drinkable but..

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - FEB 19, 2003
Faily solidly constructed. Nice sunset color with a lot of sticky white foam. Sarts out a bit too carbonated (as stated by others) Mildly tart guezesque (is that a word?) nose with lemon and a little barnyard with an undertone of vannila. Mouthfeel is too sharp from the carbonation at first but settles into a sweet malty/honeied charactor. Moderatly herbal with notes of wood, doughy yeast, dust, and cream.

Donkerbruin bier met snelzakkende schuimkraag. Zurig in de mond met kruidige neus. Niet mijn topper...

I used a corkcrew and some elbow grease to get this baby open. It's kind of rough and undisciplined- lots of strange flavors and combinations. Tastes like buckwheat, that's for sure. Not as good as I'd hoped.

This is like a Belgian strong ale without as much of the typical Belgian spiciness. I approve. The aroma and flavor is marked by an appley sweetness, but yields to a sort of tart bite at the finish. Some smokeyness abides amongst the fruit as well. Cloudy amber color with a thick, even, tan head. I should add that this bottle was a gift from my roommate and his girlfriend on my birthday.

Ouch...An amber, bronze, fecal matter nightmare with just a faint cling of head and a ton of green/grey sediment. I usually dont mind a bit of sediment, but this one was just aweful.
At least it doesnt smell as bad as it looks! Like buckwheat pancakes with a splash of port, some peatyness and it smelled dusty like in an old library.
Smooth and creamy, like most Beers brewed with buckwheat, it had a yeasty, spicy finish, cloves perhaps.

schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 6, 2006
25 cl bottle, bbe 2006. Very dark amber with a copper shine; a bit cloudy, enormous off-white head. Harsh, spicy aroma containing overdried biscuits with fruit, some nuts and a strong metallic note. Light grainy, sweetish taste with a good orangey-sourish-metallic touch and a very burnt background. Sticky body, dry mouthfeel with a burnt bitter aftertaste. Quite edgy and pretty much out of balance, Id say.

Bire brune que je pourrais qualifier de "Porter de sarrasin" prsentant un corps noire translucide et clairsem avec un beau col blanc trs arien et fort abondant au versage. Le nez est soyeux, rond aux senteurs de malts torrfis avec une pointe surette. En bouche, la gorge, trs aqueuse, offre un maltage fort torrfi pic, soyeux et aigre-doux lattaque; et puis arrive une sensation lacte qui laisse le palais et la langue fort gras. En mme temps, cest trs peu amre. En finale je reste avec un got vague de pain dpices et un grain cacaot sur la langue. Chouette bire.

Bottle, colour between golden and light brown. Huge head, lasting quite a while. Toffee, malt attack, sour ending, overall a nice beer.
