Sampled at RBSG ’10 thanks to kyotolefty. Pours clear like water. Nose is sweet fruity, anise, florals with some alcohol. Flavors are same; sweet, fruity, anise and spikes of alcohol. This was much different than any other sake I had ever tried.

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.

thedm (4920) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 29, 2012
This bottled Sake from rbsg #49 poured a head of frothy fine to medium sized clear colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a and a oily lacing. The aroma was polished rice and mild vinous. . The strong flavor contained notes of polished rice rice vinous and alcohol. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.
