harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 15, 2004
Wow, this aroma is amazing. I could sit and sniff this for a long time and be completely pleased without even drinking it. Sage, orchids, rose petals and rosewater. The taste is very clean and polished, extremely well balanced. Wonderful.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Poured a crystal clear and slight yellow. The aroma was fruity and nice. Notes of pears, honey and anise. Flavors of honey and pear with lighter notes of vanilla and rice. Great warmth with a small alcohol bitter bite on the finish. Silky smooth medium bodied that drys and seems to fold away. Man I love Sake.

Bottle from mgumby10; Thanks bunches for the sakes! Nose of plums, flowers, and gin; like a fruity gin drink; translucent pale yellow-gold; flavor of light alcohol, with plum and some starchiness. Excellent sake!

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2008
Label says 16% ABV. Pours a crystal clear yellowish tint that could pass for a very light Sauvignon Blanc. A swirl of the still body reveals syrupy legs that droop slowly down the glass. The aroma is very creamy and sweet, with notes of rice pudding, koji, and lightly fumy limoncello. There is also a strong floral presence that lends a very calming effect. The incredibly smooth, silky body distributes creamy lemon chiffon flavors evenly across the tongue. Vanilla makes its presence known, and fits perfectly into the fold. Finishes short and sweet. This is an excellent sake. Very enjoyable.

dchmela (3010) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2008
Pours clear with just a hint of gold. Sweet flower, berrys, and some herb I cannot pinpoint. Really nice. Taste is smooth and creamy, slight hint of fruit sweetness maybe a little vanilla. Lots of flavor, very subtle and elegant. Very good.

Very pale yellow color. Tall thin legs.Coconut start in the aroma with plums, and mild juniper berries. Mild and thicker fell. Mild vanilla start, with a very gentle float across the palate. Middle has a touch of licorice and plum. Alcohol is slightly noticeable in both the aroma and the warmth in the end. quite smooth and enjoyable all around.

obguthr (5644) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Pronounced blueberry muffin nose. Clear with only the slightest yellowish hue. Quite sweet flavor of blueberry initially, finishes with honey dew. Alcohol is very noticeable, but that is to be expected and it isn’t excessive for what it is. Best sake I’ve had to date.

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - MAY 13, 2008
This has a nice nose as well, rich citrus fruits, and some fresh orchids. Almost picking up some ripe red fruits on the palate, as well as a little bit of spice. This is definitely more elegant than others I have tried. Great acidity, and extremely smooth mouthfeel. Very well done!
