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.

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.

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 (3011) - 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.

crazyvin (2017) - New York, USA - MAR 13, 2009
Very good sake. Poured a nice yellowish-white hue. Aroma had a good alcohol kick and some fruits and cucumber. Flavor was a little more complex alcohol, fruit and cucumber and a hint of what seemed like bubblegum. Finish was smooth and delicate.

BMan1113VR (7884) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Bottle. Slightly off-white tinge to this clear sake with very well etched legs. Sweet and very strong in alcohol, burning nose strong. Sweet fruits, coconut, vanilla, banana, almond and a touch of koji. Taste is nice and sweet with a burn that goes up to your olfactories. Notes of vanilla, honeysuckle and coconut. Burns quite a bit more than the last Genshu I had. Not well balanced at all. Alcohol is not well hidden and it burns on every sip, but it is still good tasting. Very warming and syrupy.

PorterPounder (5826) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2008
Tallahassee, Fl - World Market - nifty looking modern painted black bottle. Slightly darker than clear pour - slight sparkle. Slight floral aroma with hints of alcohol. Flavor has some buttery notes, hints of coconut, vanilla and just a touch of licorice. Overall, pretty smooth especially considering the ABV. Very rich and thick mouthfeel. First try of this style - very nice.

Clear. Aroma is almonds, and coconut oil, and rubbing alcohol. Taste is rice, light nuttiness, interesting, but man, it’s rough.
