300ml bottle, pours a pale colour. Very sweet synthetic pear nose. Flavour similar, but fairly hot. New to sake, but this should barely count. Alcopop.

Tasting at Matt’s; 12% ABV
Very pale color, almost water. Aroma of pear and green walnut, rather artificial. Soft mouthfeel, rather sweet for a Sake, the pear comes through in a very artificial way, it highlights the alcohol notes; some candied fruit, green nuts, too much glue in the end.
Weird.

mcberko (14351) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2016
300mL bottle, pours a clear blonde. Aroma brings out notes of pears, white vinegar, and light boozy rice. Flavour brings out notes of glue, lots of phenols and artificial pears. Phenolic, fruity finish. Not terrible, but really cheap tasting and lacking any depth.

Pours a pale colour. Sweet pear nose, with sweet rice pudding character. Taste is similar, but fairly hot. New to sake, but this should barely count. Alcopop.

Oakes (15615) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2016
Very pale. Maybe a touch of green, but other than that, clear. The pear is artificial, candyish, just not good. The base sake is bland, and god help me the fruit character is trash.

300ml bottle from Swirl & Sip in Mosaic. Guinomi. Chilled. Clear, slightly yellowish tinge. A: fruity, definite pear presence. Nice. T: pear, melon, floral notes. Oily and boozy. OK.

I don’t really know how to judge sake as I’m not a big sake drinker on the norm. This was nice clean and clear. Hints of melon and fruit with some rice.

I’ve had this bottle of sake for quite some years now. I’d pretty much forgotten about it, but saw it tonight and thought what the heck. I don’t recall where I got this bottle, but I don’t think it was from when I toured the sake company in 2011. The sake pours to a chardonnay wine colored body with long lasting legs. The aroma is mostly floral rice and Jasmin. The flavor is floral rice with very subtle fruity pear and melon. Palate isn’t lingering or overbearingly sweet.

Simple, typical clear pour, nice pear enhancing a typical sake flavor. Good with sushi and Korean.

Moonstone Asian Pear Sake is a pretty tasty beverage. Intoxicating pear aroma coming from the clear, slightly yellow liquid. The pear taste comes through with a slight alcohol bite. Not bad for a Thai restaurant drink.
