yngwie (13160) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2011
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. Milky-white, lumpy body. The has a pleasant touch of rice and fruits, quite weak. Sweet in the mouth, rice-ish and quite fruity. Medium body, the mouth is covered with small rice bits. Tasteful, but not very pleasant to drink. Nigori is nice, but this one’s too lumpy. 110129

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2007
Spinnaker’s Store, Victoria
Pours thick, white...milky and looking like guava juice or soghum beer. Nigori is fun to look at. Aroma of bubblegum, pear, peach, yeast. Smooth palate is sweet, sugary rice with light fruit notes and a hint of tartness late. With nigiri it demonstrates a lively, fruity, milky character. Scores bonus points for drinkability...for something that doesn’t look terribly approachable it sure tastes approachable.
