Bottle from BMan3111vr, thanks. Pours cloudy clear, nose is sweet. Taste is really intense, this is a very very big sake.

Cavie (4263) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2009
Bottle courtesy of BMan1113VR. Clear as all hell. No coloring. Smell is light but has oriental floral and slight alcohol. Taste is dry and watered however it has a fair amount of rice and grain. Sweetness morphs into a tingle. A little hot and felt near the back.

Gentle sweet coconut milk and fresh pineapple aroma, barely straw colored. Some cedar. More wood character in the sip, building warmness, raw cinnamon finish and some mango.

heemer77 (5289) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Pale yellow tinted body that leaves only a little bit of legs when swirled. The nose is sweet and fruity with some notes of peaches and coconuts. There is also a light tropical hint with the fruity character. I find the body to be a little thick with strong coconut and peach flavors. There is a nice alcohol burn in the finish, but it is not unpleasant. Fairly light overall with only a little bit of wood that mostly comes through in the lingering finish. I sampled a few times both room temperature and cooled. I liked it both ways, but preferred it cool.

nick76 (4370) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 26, 2009
The aroma is complex for a sake with rice, leaves, coconut, fruit, and alcohol. The appearance is almost clear with legs on the glass. The flavor is like the aroma with some nuttiness. The palate is smooth. Overall a really nice sake.

Palidor19 (3145) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JUN 26, 2009
this is a sake that really packs a punch, the pour is highly thick and the aroma knocks you off with the strong rice, slight coconut, floral and a touch of fruit. taste is thick and oily. a great sake.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Pretty much water white. Aroma is a bit tight, just a bit of melon. Flavor is quite powerful. Tons of cantaloupe and banana. Full, thick mouthfeel. This stands up to spicier fare.

Why is this under SakeOne when it’s blatently momokawa as it says on the bottle and Momokawa has like 6 or 7 other sake entry’s and this "sakeOne Corporation" has none and it says nothing about sakeone corporation on the bottle. Whatever, ill just keep quiet about the gross mismanagement of this database. Anyway, the nose on this monster was quite nice, actually..a thick blanket of vanilla pudding with stepped on bananas, caramel, white chocolate, and a little thai sticky rice and mango dessert. The appearance was still and clear...there isnt variance enough in sake appearance to necessitate a scale of 5, but I must deal with the stupid crap I’m dealt with. Pretty clean and smooth on the tongue yet superbly thick mouthfeel. There’s some sweet backing but nothing cloying, there’s a funky bitter finish that could be a little less intrusive...the flavors in the middle are somewhat vegital like squash/pumpkin with a coating of licorice and medicine. Its quite interesting really and a departure from the overly fruit/melon/coconut nuances we’re used to, though there are subtle notes of such here as well. I quite like it indeed.
