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 I’ve had.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.
