Thanks to ben for sharing at Azia. A subtle fruity/floral aroma with some rice sweetness. The floral notes really come out in the flavor. Exceptionally smooth.

From Azia in Minneapolis. Clear. Sweet, floral and slightly citrusy aroma. Dominating floral taste. Slight rice and grain flavors too.

720ml Bottle: Clear, light chalk tinge with some wavy legs. The nose is sweet and floral with plenty of melon, kiwi, peach and light licorice. The flavor is balanced, for +5 it’s surprisingly sweet, but that’s because of the low acidity. A bit of alcohol is present along with the usual light koji grain notes. Very nice sake for an import, and only $30 for a 720ml bottle.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Clear with a lime tint. Aroma of tangy pears and supple lemongrass. Smooth, gently caressing and dominated with some pluym and grain. This is very far from rocket fuel sake. Incredibly swillable. Grace and silkyness. A smack of lemon, coriander and some almost oily notes. Delicious. Goes well with $25 toro.

Moderately oily pour light gold color, a little dark for a ginjo. Watermelon and apple aroma, also hints of lilac and honeysuckle, very flowery. Starts strongly like pears and berries, light almonds with a very little bit of citrus. Alcohol is subtle, extremely smooth. Very pleasant aftertaste of stawberry/citrus. Recommend highly with red meats. This sake took me forever to find any information about on the web, I bought it tonight having never heard of it and am very very glad I did. Drinking this is like walking dreamily through a field of wildflowers. Every drink is a slightly different sensation, try this if you get the chance!
