[ Bottle ][ 3oz ][ Sake House Yu Me Ya ][ $4 ][ Sake Shooter ][ 4.24.15 ]
>> Clear pour, colorless. Green planty nose like aloe pulp, honeydew rind. Taste is exceptionally soft, very neutral, great body, no alcohol, no stickiness, low apple and green banana. As it warms, pretty much tastes like vodka-soaked honeydew melon. Pulpy, fresh...really good.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 1, 2009
At the Wine House Sake Tasting. Bottle poured by the distributor. Pours clear with a water like hue and good legs. Aroma is sweet and chalky with vanilla and banana. Taste starts of sweet, then turns chalky with almonds, koji ad a dry finish. Medium viscosity.

fiulijn (16462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2009
Pure water appearance. The aroma is fruity and floreal, delicate but persistent, with honeydew. Smooth mouthfeel; the taste is lightly fruity, dry, elegant, with a touch of sweet nuts and roasted chicken. Velvety till the final, well balanced. Good feeling, filling, at the end.

Had this with some Sapparo @ Haru in nyc. Liked the saki we had right before this one. Okay, but sort of expensive.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Had this at Haru Sushi on Wall Street, NYC. Overall very good, but a little pricey. Had an interesting taste which I could see some people appreciating. Not as good as the bottle we had before this.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Small glass at a new ramen place in nyc. They served this is a cedar box (masu), with a glass sitting inside of it, that had intentionally overflowed into the box. I figured I was supposed to pour it into the masu, which I did, and it was fine, except then it started leaking all over the place. So I poured it back in the glass, although the masu smelled delicious.

No doubt it’d overpower this sake though, it being very very mild, with light melon and orange and a touch of mint. Super dry , with no phenols. Very yummy stuff.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Crisp and clear, aroma light apples and slightly sweet and puzzlingly dry. Delicately sweet flavor with faint almonds but lots of herbal and floral flavors...turns dry in the finish but still a slight residual sweetness.
