From a 75 cl bottle at Tachibana Restaurant in McLean VA. Crystal clear with a delicate melon aroma and flavor. Very nice flavor and an excellent accompaniment to sushi.

Part of a sake sampler than worked well as a palate cleanser. Contains less on the fruit and more on the rice for this one.

Served cool at the Cerulean restaurant in Indiana - Pours very pale yellow and has a fruity aroma with rice and a light hint of spice. The flavor is sweet and fruity including melon flavors. There’s also some alcohol presence as is typical but it’s still pretty smooth and has a clean finish. Very good sake.

It pours transparent with a hint of champagne colour. The aroma has notes of: pears, Fuji apples, alcohol, and rice-pudding. The taste is medium sweet that finishes dry; there are notes of: melons, almonds, alcohol, and slight citrus. The palate is medium-full bodied, slightly viscous, and light acidity. Overall, tasty, but forgettable; very reasonably priced though.

Bottle at a tasting, from a typical wine glass. Pours clear - no head, no lacing. Nose is soapy, with lychee light pepper, pears, very pretty nose.. Flavours are punchy, with crisp pear, earth, very creamy in the mouth, with a lovely limestone/soapstone minerality throughout. Really nice stuff!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I know very little about sake, but whatever. Pours milky white. Aroma is primarily of peanut butter with some mild nutmeg sweet spice. Flavor is of rice, sherry, and peanut butter. Not bad!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. No head (still). Body is virtually colorless (faint hint of yellow). Aroma is notes of apple, lime, melon rind, grain/rice, alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, no carbonation, moderately alcoholic, lightly astringent. A perfectly serviceable sake...the nose is pleasant with obvious fruit notes and very little of the typical glue-mold odors in most sakes at this price. Nothing special in the mouth but relatively clean and easy going. Good QPR.
