Pours white wine yellow, clear with no sediment. Bright rice wine "tropical" nose with detectable light alcohol and very FAINT raspberry. Drinks with that unexpected yet expected light "saltiness" that sakés have, 2/10-sweetness (on the dry side), mainly rice wine & soft alcohol, with hints of pineapple, raspberries (definitely not LUSH), and the alcohol and dryness takes over in the finish. Low compexity, low-med depth, okay carry, okay drinkability, not too amazing as a sipper. It takes awhile getting used to the subtlety of the raspberry flavour; the bottle is so awesome-looking and the anticipation is high...but alas, disappointed. Perhaps ok as a mixer.

Served in a small wine glass, at my local P. F. Chang’s. Turned out to be more than enough. Clear white color, with a yellow hue. Nose of rice and maybe a hint of raspberry. Little honey. Sweet taste, heat. Bigger body. Rice aftertaste, hint of raspberry. Not really the tastiest experience for me. I probably haven’t learned to appreciate this stuff yet.

thirdeye11 (6073) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2011
(750ml bottle thanks to Mora2000) clear, tinge of pink with mild coating of the glass. Nose of subtle raspberry and rice. Taste of alcohol, rice, dry, subtle raspberry, and overall it’s a bit too alcoholic for my liking.

Cavie (4311) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2011
Bottle courtesy mora2000. Very clear appearance with almost no color. No carbonation either. Aroma is fairly faint. Not much aroma on this. Maybe a hint of raspberry but not much. Flavor is fairly sweet with rice and alcoholic wet wipes. Fake sweet flavorings. Not much raspberry.

Mora2000 (6156) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Clear. Aroma is heavy on the rice and a little bit of raspberry. The flavor has a good bit of rice and vanilla notes with a tad bit of raspberry flavor and sweetness. Not near as much raspberry character as in a lot of other infused sakes. Decent.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 23, 2008
Very nice and refreshing. Aroma is very sweet with only a hint of raspberry. Slightly off-white tinged body with some dripping down the side of the glass. Very smooth with just the right amount of berriness. Alcohol is not that well hidden at all.

(Bottle) Pours a lightly pale clear pinkish tinged body. Aroma of coconut milk, raspberry, and vanilla. Flavor of vanilla, tapioca, and raspberry.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2007
(750ml bottle) Purchased at the Penny Farthing for $26.80. Interesting blue bottle with a coconut milk and raspberry aroma. Berry flavour turns to a alcoholic heat which finishes with a smooth whiskey like palate. Average.

Cold at P.F. Changs, The Woodlands, TX. Ah, dinner at one of my favorite Chinese restaraunts-- looking forward to feasting on the orange peel chicken and Dan Dan noodles-- when, before said feast, I perused the drink menu for a pre-dinner cocktail. What is this? A sake I haven’t had? Fantastic! The waiter brought the sake in a small, slender champagne glass; it looked like a flute for midgets. Anyway, the liquid staring me in the face was cake-white, sort of a cross between white and creamy beige. The aroma was sour wine and featured a subtle berry note. The first sip nearly took my breath away, and that isn’t a good thing in this case. Diluted melon and bastardized candy invaded my taste buds and almost demolished them. A watery mouthfeel didn’t help the situation, either. Guess I’m not much of an infused sake man.
