4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour out of bottle, clear pour with no head, aroma is nice white wine, grape, melon, nutty notes into a bit of peach, pear, some slight vanilla. Taste was a mix of tart grain, vanilla, honey into a bit of melon, slight peach, hints of white fruits into a bit of sugar, finishing sweet, slightly acidic. Nice.

The best sake I’ve ever had. The bottle is a little cheesy art wise but I’ve had sake 10x as expensive but hats off this is it. Thanks. Perfect.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2013 This was a tasting of Blue Label Mu 青乃無, made in Hyogo. Crystal clear. Sweet, fruity, mellow and round sake, with peaches and melon in the nose and a dry, peppery, spicy finish. Huge, rich, flavor--she told me it was dry, but that was the finish, big sweet, fruity lusciousness up until then. Great full body. Good stuff.

300ml bottle. Clear, but with a slight yellow tint. No legs. Aroma is a melony sweet alcohol. Flavor follows with more fruit. Body is slightly thick and finishes crisp. Paired with with some pear, which was nice. And the bottle looks good too :)

Tap a decibel in nyc. Clear in color, what else would it be? Earthy stone fruit, alcohol. Pear, apple, earth, and alcohol on the flavor. A little boozy with medium body. A good sake I think.

Bottle shared by Eric. Now I’ve had plenty of Sake when I lived in Japan, but I never really liked it much- or at least not as much as beer. But I am branching out, and this quality brew was very nice. Pours a crystal clear color. The aroma and the flavor were dominated by sweet apples and pear. It was very oily and flavorful. Quite nice. Very warm as Sake tends to be. I am really not qualified to rate a Sake, but I will re-rate all of my early tries later when I hopefully know more.
