3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at a local sushi place. Probably a bad choice to pair with the sushi, but live and learn. Poured an almost entirely clear color with a very light hue of pink to it. Aroma is light sweet plum notes, a touch of pitted cherries. Flavor is a touch medicinal - it reminds me a bit too much of the flavoring put in cough medicine, drinkable though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Super floral-y, tastes like the smell of a fresh bouquet, aftertaste a little perfume-y. Definitely plum taste, more in the beginning. I think it’s sweet, refreshing, and tasty.

Clear light pink. No head. Reminded of something like liquefied red gummi bears. Like candy, but not super sugary

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice clear pinkish hue. Candied japanese plum (ume) on the nose. Drinks with 7/10-sweetness (much sweeter than the pear and raspberry), medium stickiness to the palate, straightforward ume flavour, mild cloying, very light alcohol detection, mild apple & pear notes finishing slightly sugary and mild alcoholic. Not much depth but very drinkable compared to the pear and raspberry.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly pink in color. Aroma is flowers, rice and plums. A fairly nice aroma overall. The flavor is rice and plums and the sake is very sweet. Hard to drink too much due to the high sugar content. No detectable alcohol.
