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 isn’t mentioned on the bottle.

sebletitje (10293) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 20, 2008
courtesy of Keifdog 750 ml bottle. Pours hazy brown, flat with little head. Aroma, buckwheat and yeasty. Taste, floral, yeasty, loaded with floating sediments. Nothing really special here, all we could get was the overbearing presence of the floating chunks.

Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2008
Courtesy of Fonefan. It’s a beautiful, red-brown beer with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of sour malt, fruit and berries. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of slightly sour malt, yeast, berries, light fruit and candy sugar. It’s an OK buckwheat beer.

Taste: pretty sour start, some vinegar, sour red berries, pretty spicy, some honey. Aftertaste: red berries, sour, bit infected, honey, earthy.

JorisPPattyn (10072) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2009
Very thick-set, cream coloured head, irregular, over chestnut-cola coloured beer. Very outspoken coriander nose, soupy, sweet malt and colouring. Citrus, and lots of sugar, even melasses, but ending sweet. All the time "enriched" by the evil seeds, of course. Just ast the blonde, very fizzy, overcarbonized. Despite this, there’s an oily slickness, leaving a film on the tongue. Certainly not Silenrieux’ best try. One would believe Du Bocq.

Slight gushing to huge, beige head; foxy-amber beer, all clear. Adstringency in the nose; glue, solvent, plywood and straw. Maybe some dark candi sugar. Quite smoked taste at the onset, dark malts, and - I guess - buckwheat indeed. Unfortunately, the solvent aroma's are back retronasal, if less. Slight acidity and adstringency. Quite well bodied, nevertheless. The solvent is a brewing fault, IMO. Sad, because the beer behind it seems to deserve better.

The Lure:
A moving universe of floaties dallies below the corked apricot juice. Rustic supernovae have exploded, but long ago it seems, as mostly remnants are perceived.

The Festivities:
The momentous yeastiness was predictable, but not the pretentious, invasive carbonation. Fruity sweetness wades in the soft, dry cereals, but in the end offers little to please.

Transcendence:
Your apartment maybe well decorated, but if you never clean it...

downender (8891) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2008
Bottle. Ruby red, with big carbonation and a decent off-white head. Aromas of wood, grain and caramel, with some hedgerow fruit. Flavour was slightly sweet, with some herb and wood flavours - it tasted like a Scottish traditional ale, and a decent dry finish. Enjoyable.

Ibrew2or3 (8828) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Courtesy of Keifdog. Pours rosie copper with thin off white head and flat brown floaties. The aroma is moderate with some cherries and apples to go along with raspberry fruity tartness. The taste seems much the same but has a sugar engorged raspberry kool-aid quality to it. Hmm. Behind the kool-aid are muted notes of wheat and possibly malt.
