2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is for the Organic version, clear, colorless with a nose of a strong Pina Colada, stronger alcohol than fruit, some koji as well. Light on the palate, added alcohol evident, grainy, slight fennel and apricot pit, warming alcohol. Not really a stand out sake, just middle of the pack.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
It pours a slight off greenish tint, and a hint of yellow. The aroma contains notes of: rice koji, pepper, shitake mushroom, grassy quality, and alcohol. The taste is medium sweet that finishes with light acidic; there are notes of: fuji apple, rice koji, alcohol, and earthy quality. The palate is light-medium body, slight alcohol burn and medium finish. Overall, it lacks in the flavour department.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This bottled sake from a bottle shop poured a head of frothy medium sized clear colored bubbles that were very quickly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated transparent clear colored body and no lacing. The mild aroma was rice. The semi-dry smooth mildly vinous mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a medium vinous aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of rice plastic and mildly vinous. An OK sake just nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
At the Wine House Sake Tasting. Pours with a clear hue and strong legs. Aroma is fruity with melon, almonds and mandarin orange. Taste is fruity, chalky and a touch spicy as far as sakes go. Medium viscosity, decent balance.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served cold. Poured clear. Light aroma of some apple, a bit of honey, perhaps a touch of alcohol. Flavor follows and is surprisingly sweet with notes of honey and wildflowers, some dark fruits, coconut, with perhaps a touch of alcohol coming in. Pretty smooth. Overall a nice sake, though not as subtle as the finest, and has a clean sweet flavor and goes down easily.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle... Clear with no legs, but it’s a small sample. A touch of fennel in the nose. Thin, watery texture. Sweet, but not overly so, with no acidity or bitterness. Kinda gross, but I’m not much of a sake guy.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear as water w/ spicey aromatics and just a hint of the chocolate bamboo. Light and dry w/ a plesant fruity charcter. Refined flavors of bamboo and hard candy necklace. The finish is polished w/ defined alcohol and lingering candy fruit. Not a complex specimen but surely delicious.
