3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
fruity, like banana, cherry aroma. appearance is a clear, pale yellow. mouthfeel is oily, heavy and limp on the tongue. taste is intense and of coconut, medicinal high note(?), licorice like spice and somewhat of a bite, a little oxidized. highly flavourful, but flavours verge on being a mess.

This is so far from beer but oh well. Clear. Very aromatic. Fruity. Pear. Banana. Tasting perfume, but in a good way. Alcohol apparent. Sweet.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice clear bleu bottle. Taste of light fruity notes with plenty of alcohol burn. Rice notes are very subtle with light honey notes. The alcohol notes are a bit too pronounced for my taste.

Grabbed bottle on way home from work just to continue my sake kick. Pours relatively clear with thinish tinge of iron. Nose is perfume, melon, and rice. Tastes floral, of unripe honey dew, watermelon, cocunut, rice, slightly herbal and medicinal. Overall touch flat but drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, cooled. Amount milled is not listed on the label. Pours clear, very slight haze. Nose is floral rice, cantaloupe, slight alcohol. Flavour is more cantaloupe, rice, hardly any alcohol, smooth and easy to drink... reading about sake styles now and this style is supposedly "puckering" on the acidity scale but I didn’t notice that. Enjoyable.
