Crystal clear like a vodka. nose is pear-like and sweet. taste is more lychee than pear with a distinct rice flavor. The sweetness creates an impression of thickness in the finish.

Served chilled fresh from an unopened bottle, this Sake pours perfectly clear and smooth, impressive. Smell is faint and clean, fresh sweet aroma. The taste is mildly sweet, subtly a bit fruity, but also allows the grainy rice flavor to come through. Also what I suppose is the yeasty taste of koji. I enjoy this flavor profile over the gekkeikan junmai ginjo I sampled previously, which was a bit too sweet. However, I was bit disappointed that the taste was not more flavorful, could've been stronger. At any rate, seemed to be an authentic Japanese offering.

Bottle shared with my wife. Pours clear with the smallest hint of gold to it. Big sweet rice, chewy yeast, a touch of warm alcohol, bread. Medium bodied, warm rice, touches of banana. Sweet and simple, warmth on the finish and a bit of yeast. Decent enough.

Martinus (3437) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2012
Clear watery colour. Nicely floral aroma, quite light, rice with strong alcohol notes. Light sweet flavour, floral, light alcohol notes. Floral light finish.
I don’t know much about sake, but I do know I liked it. Good stuff, and for sure I will drink this again if I have the chance.

Sampled at RBBSG. Ehh I have no idea how to rate this...it looks like water, just clear watery like... Ok so aroma, it smells a bit sweaty... Taste is weird, haven’t tasted anything like this before (pretty obvious since this is my first sake) but ist’s slightly sweet and some alcohol, I don’t get much more. A new experience, always nice.

Hot butterscotch nose. Clear with a blue-green-yellowish hue. Watery and warm. Flavor is heavily dominated by koji and cantaloupe. Finishes with butterscotch and koji.

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 24, 2012
Bottle at a restaurant in Albany (the name escapes me). Pours clear like water and about the same viscosity. Mild aroma of rice and vanilla along with some alcohol vapors. The flavor is exactly the same as the aroma. Easy to drink and enjoyable with my meal. No problems.

Gift from SJ. What I liked about this was the nice blend of pepper, vanilla, nut, riceand milk. It was ok for the style.
