Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Clear with a slight yellow hint to it. Nose is of koji, citrus melon and a touch of coconut. Flavor has light notes of koji with a little heat. Some of the citrus trails over. Tail is smooth and a little warm.

Big thanks to IslandHaole for this. I’ve been trying to find this listing for 3 months! My first sake! Slight yellow pour but mostly clear with some slight fruit and moonshine aromas. Tastes woody, with a tad of fruit and some ricy sensation as it goes down the throat. Warming effect, and it mellowed out my Macanudo cigar. I have 3 or 4 more sakes from Dan in my beer fridge, and I can’t wait to try them.

IslandHaole (1228) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - MAY 14, 2005
This is my "Hometown" Sake! (Actually from 2 towns over, but who’s counting)? A touch of yellow this side of clear with a koji/herbal scent, slight wood middle and a warm alcohol finish. A nice flavorful little known sake. I’m looking forward trying a few more from this brewer! Thanks for adding it Josh!

Oakes (15617) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2005
Clear with only the faintest hint of green. Aroma of toasted rice, slight peach and a little bit of wood. The palate kicks off with a shot of alcohol and slightly more subdued toasty notes. Hints of peach and pears liven things up. The finish is dry with alcohol.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 9, 2005
300mL Bottle: Clear, barely a hint of beige, long legs. Nose of ripe melon, sweet spring koji, blooming dandelions and a general fresh nasal opening smell. The body is rich with a subtle sweetness, not quite neutral but close. Finishes medium bodied, subtle and invigorating. The koji is a bit more pronounced as it warms and the tail is longer than I prefer.Thanks to Dan & Josh for this treat!
