SAYURI means "a little lily", which reminds us of the delicate image of Japanese culture. In actuality, the word "yuri", or "lily", has the meaning in floral terms of "chastity" and "innocence", and "SAYURI" is also used as a name for Japanese girls and women. We created SAYURI as an embodied gracefulness of Japan. Using only selected rice and rice koji, this is pure Nigori sake brewed up carefully with the natural water of Rokko.

I don’t have my sake legs under me yet. Pours a cloudy white and has an aroma of bubblegum and rice. Taste is somewhat bland, mainly rice and boozy. Didn’t enjoy it very much.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Mondial 2010. Sayuri Nigori pink bottle. Pours a light milky white water. Aroma is light fruity and floral aroma- fruit juice, fruity bubblegum, sugar, citrus and big melon- cantaloupe with hints of banana. Flavor is more melon- cantaloupe, and honeydew, grass, honey- then slight solvent and alcohol in the finish. Very nice though- refined and fruity.

Servi sur glace dans un beau restaurant japonais de Brossard. Liquide blanc, laiteux. Première expérience avec ce type de Sake, très bon, agréable, doux. La finale est enveloppante, longue et désaltérante.

Bottle RBSG 2010. Poured cloudy white color with sticky particle legs. Moderate coconut, almonds and melons aroma. Medium body with a creamy unfiltered texture. Medium pineapple, vanilla and coconut rice flavor with a medium creamy sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations were met with a complex sake

hopscotch (10206) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Bottle…RBSG 2010… Pours murky and white. The aroma is a blend of coconut milk and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied with a very creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is sweet, but not cloying, and is reminiscent of coconut milk. Very nice. Bottle courtesy of KyotoLefty!

Bottle at the Grand Tasting during RBSG brought by . Pours a milky and hazy light white. Looks like Pocari-Sweat. Soft sweetness, light fruit and esters. Soft banana, a light alcohol that warms on the finish.

A Mes rate. Bottle thanks to Craig, via Chris.
Smells floral as hell, with some glorious but delicate banana in the background. Not sure about this milky appearance, never had an unfiltered sake before. Also not a fan of the thick body. Flavour is good though. Identical to the aroma with a lengthy banana aftertaste. Good but weird.

This stuff isn’t awful but I think I’m still not used to sake yet. Pour a milky white and gas an aroma if alcohol, coconut and some wattery rice pudding. Flavor is sweet and boozy! There are some pleasant sweet rice pudding like flavors bur the blast of booze gives me the shivers.
