bhensonb (12440) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Pull top bottle from Bine & Vine. Aroma is fruity with alcohol. Pours clear as water. Rather thick. Flavor is sweet, fair amount of heat, rice and hints of fruit. No fusil oils, which is a good thing. Its an interesting change from beer.

crossovert (9169) - Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2014
180ml green pull-tab bottle. took some of this warm and cold. Warm it is terible, boozy and hot, burning alchol. Cold it is again boozy, almost vomit-inducing. Used the rest in a stir-fry and honestly it wasnt as good as usual.

deyholla (8114) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Sampled at Slurping Turtle Ann Arbor. Pours water like. Aroma has booze and sweet rice, only slightly dry. Flavor is sweet rice throughout, smooth and a bit of booze in the finish.

jredmond (6284) - Manhattan, New York, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle in Maryland with Linh and family. Pours a clear body with minimal bubbles. Aroma is strong fruity flavors - mostly strawberries and peach. Mouthfeel is a touch hot with the fruit coming through in the form of melon. Nice sweet, fruity sake.

Clear, pure appearance. A bit alcoholic taste with a hint of rice and some flowers.

laiti (7264) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 25, 2014
18 cl bottle @ home
Totally clear appearance; only viscosity tells it from water. Aroma is quite typical to sake with some rice, sweaty tones and some sweetness. Flavour is boozy with rice, some sweaty tones and hints of grapefruit. Sake is still not my thing and this feels a bit more unclean than the other two sakes Ive had.

lusikka (7102) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2013
180 ml bottle.
Pours a clear colour. Yes, clear. Aroma of sweet pear juice, wet paper and rice. Flavour of wet rice, cardboard, subtle pear sweetness and sharp tartness. Some solvent-like notes as well. After a while your mouth gets dry with cardboard flavours and you almost dry out. Very light bodied, no carbonation and a sharp finish, with again cardboard. Hard to rate as a beer. Lacks aroma, appearance, flavour and palate completely. The bottle looks nice, though.

mrhoppy (1289) - Santa Clara, California, USA - APR 10, 2013
Powerful alcohol bite. Clear pour. Aroma has pears and apples, glue and cardboard. Mix it with a beer to make it taste better.
