CanIHave4Beers (3999) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Shared (likely by kyotolefty) at the RBSG grand tasting. Pours clear and looks a bit like water. The aroma is complex and interesting with some pear and black licorice along with a nice booziness. The flavor is spicy and fruity with some rice and a good warming booziness.

Grabbed some quick sushi with wife and kid and couldnt pass up affordable daiginjo. Pours light Chardonnay. Nose is big tropical fruit and rice. Tastes of overripe honeydew, pineapple, rice, vanilla, and some white wine. Pretty big flavors and creamy texture. Delightful

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 23, 2011
Slightly tainted clear pour. Cantelope in the nose with a little ricey kick around the edges, flavors again of sweet melon and ricey alcohol...alcoholic, sweet, but with a melony booziness to it that brings it to refinement. Not too shabby really.
