From a pretty neat looking 300 ml bottle. Pours a hazy milk white. Taste is of rice, fruit and a touch of warming alcohol. Has a floral and rice aroma. The body is creamy, a bit coarse and coats the mouth. Very easy to drink and quite enjoyable. Well worth having again.

Lightly sweet nose with a touch of honey, hints of grapes and dough. The taste is lightly sweet with subtle honeysuckle, peach and pear, light honey.

Great sake. Floral aroma, very smooth and tasty like a complex white wine. Dangerously drinkable.

Little Lily is the perfect name to use when describing this delicate Nigori. It is bottled beautifully, tastes among the best, and is gentle on your palate. And like the White Crane it is soft and lifting with a solid organic white color. Sayuri is an excellent Sake!

Shaken it pours a milky white with a flat appearance. Nose is somewhat soapy and floral, smidgens of tang creeping in, and some tropical fruit and/or melon on top. Light, milky, softly sweet, soapy, floral flavors...a bit watery in the mouth though also quite milky as well...not much if any alcohol notes though and really clean if not florally soapy with a bit of melon rind, and with a sweetness that is very tame but still somewhat evident. Nothing complex here, but I’d be lying if i said this wasn’t some unoffensive and easy drinking stuff right here....just has no complexity to speak of.

White color, like almond milk. Strong Sake aroma, rice, with strong fruitiness too; some alcohol. The mouthfeel is quite thick and a bit astringent; rice and starch; light fruity side (watermelon and honedew), some sweetness, and high alcohol perception.
