Vaiz (3146) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2011
My first sake rating, so this might sound a bit like a newbie rating.. clear very light off-white pour. Aroma of white wine, some fruits and sour apple. Flavor is quite sweet and alcoholic. Very thin palate and watery texture. I’m not sure sake is for me, but I should give it another shot sometime.

TBone (11905) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 22, 2005
Bottled
My first try with sake. As it can be served in the different temperatures, I wanted to try this both cold and warm.
Chilled, around 10-15c
Clear appearance, like water. Alcoholic fruity nose: mash, grappa, licorice, grapefruit. Taste is also like drinking watered grappa. Slightly fruity, rice flours flavor. Dry mouthfeel, alcoholic warming comes afterwards.
Warmed, to hand-warm temperature
Aroma turns much softer and mild, like inhaling healthy menthol fumes. Warmed this is much easier to drink - soft palate with rice and alcoholic warming.
Rating is quite hard as this has very little to do flavors and other characters of beer. Appearance was propably "perfect" for daiginjo-shu so it will get average 3 (for beer it would be 1).

thedm (4887) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 1, 2007
This bottled sake from an online bottle shop poured absolutely clear with with no bubbles at all. The aroma was mild rice. The mouth feel was crisp start with a mild vinous finish that lingered well into the aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of mild vinous semi-sweet rice. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

Dedollewaitor (13390) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2010
Bottle @ Friday Night Ulfborg Tasting Thing. Thanks to J&C. Pours clear no color - no head. Low and flat carbonation. Rice and alcohol. Thin . .

Arayaga2 (1754) - portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 10, 2007
First off, let me say that this product doesn’t smell nearly enough of toe-fungus for me. Its unacceptable aroma translates into crevice-born flavor when cold, and mellows to almost-palatable fruityness when warmed.

dEnk (3482) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2011 So it has come to this, rating a sake... No idea whatsoever so here goes: Aroma is sour vinegary white wine. Flavour is sweet rice goo. Oh yeah and alcohol. I’ll stick to beer.

maurimama (2) - Vermont, USA - FEB 21, 2009 does not count
Fruity tones but too boozy for us. There was a hint of sweet tart flavor which was nice but overall, too sharp.
