Inbreak (3324) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2015
15.08.2015, 1,8l bottle sampled @ The Tatami Room, Barcelona:
Very light straw colored. Aroma is mild rice aroma, with hints of hay, yeast and some fruits. Taste is slightly dry, yet kind of mild with a round rice flavor, hay, minerals, yeast. Nice warming mild boozy mouthfeel. Fair enough.

KoRoBeNiKi (133) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - JUN 26, 2015
A bit fruitier in terms of citrus than most other Sakes. Very popular and generally pretty low priced due to this. Otherwise some melon and some alcohol. Solid if not super interesting outside of the strong citrus note. Semi-recommended for fans of heffweizen.

shoulderbroken (3061) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 14, 2014
Glass in an Okonomiyaki restaurant in Shinjuku. Aroma is boozy, taste is better, but still lots of alcohol. Lightly fruity. I’ve had better I think. Bit teeth coating.

Erzengel (6219) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2013
720ml. my fist Saké ever. absolutely clear in the glass, the nose is very fruity (pears, fresh apples, melon, probably banana). The Saké starts dry, fruity, clean. The main part is very fresh and full with fresh fruit aromas like green apples, melons, just like the nose. At the end there appears a bit warming alcohol. The fruityness stays very long till the end of the long aftertaste. --> very interesting!! 11/10/11/11

Travlr (17644) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 27, 2013
From bottle at Standing Bar in Kurumu, courtesy of the three physicians, specifically the retired department head. Paired with "the organ than human doesn’t have but chicken does." Probably the tastiest sake of the day, light, fruity and smooth.
