At Yama with Taylor, Stephen, and Dina. Pours cloudy semen white. Aroma is sweet cinnamon toast, alcohol. Taste is sweet tangerine syrup, pińa colada. Not very great, the perfumy sweet syrup is too much.

Pour from bottle at Yama. Pour is milky white with some small floaters - good legs. Huge coconuts, somewhat citrusy, Malibu, somewhat floral, and doughy aroma. Taste is fresh squeezed coconut milk, lemons, light alcohol, a touch of bananas, and apples with light heat on the backend. Medium body with no carbonation. Crushable pińa colada drank.

Completely delicious. Milky white, opaque, obvious particulate, much more coconut than lemongrass in the aroma, touch of vanilla, lots of almond. Milky on the tongue, thick, bits of alcohol heat and pepper. Sweet. Tastes like a holiday mixed drink. Finishes sweet. While dubious of a concoction made without natural ingredients, this sake company pulls it off. This just plain works.

Moderate coconut aroma. Milky white color. Strong coconut flavor similar to a pina colada.

Bottle (shaken, not stirred). No head (still). Body is opaque white. Aroma is strong notes of coconut and rice milk, lesser notes of Kaffir lime, glue, lemongrass, alcohol. Flavor is insanely sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is harshly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, oily/gritty texture, no carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Wow. Even though I don’t rate "Taste" the way most people do (effectively a duplication of the aromatic descriptors) it’s still pretty rare that the flavor balance and magnitude score varies more than 2 points from the aroma score. This is about as wide a discrepancy as I’ve had. It smells nice...like real, raw coconut / coconut milk, so even though it’s overpowering at least it smells natural. Then you put it in your mouth. And gag from the ungodly sweetness. Off the fucking chart. Can’t even describe it. Piercing, sharp, lactose, artificial, and as intense as a paper wasp sting on your eyeball. It makes my whole body literally convulse with displeasure. It’s even worse than taking a mouthful of Karo syrup, if that is imaginable. Which is really sad, because it smells like it would at least be pleasant. Truly wretched.

750mL Bottle. Thanks for sharing, Sarah. Hmm, I must say that infused sake should probably join fruit-infused cider in the "non-beer" category. This does in fact taste like an adult Coconut life saver. Sweet. Very sweet. Boozy. The perfect pairing for "second Christmas" with the in-laws. Or, maybe not.

Cavie (3786) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2011
Bottle courtesy mora2000. Pours a dirty cloudy yellow white color with chunks of things floating in it. Aroma is fairly coconutty. Grassy notes with lemon and Christmas tree. Flavor is sweet and uber-spicy. Lots of decorative soap and coconut shavings. Very candle like. Odd to say the least.
