Straw yellow. Smells of rise, some wine and yeast. Sweet body, some alcohol. A bit wineous. Dry on the palate. My first sake, som this is a very guessable score

350 ml bottle at home. Clear, pale straw golden. No head. Yeast, booze, vinuous notes, fermented fruits and eraserhead on the nose. Full bodied with an alcoholic warmth and a syrupy texture. Yeasty, boozy and meaty notes in the mouth. Long, dry, leathery finish. Had it with take-away sushi from Sabi Sushi. Excellent match.

Bottle shared at The Trappist. Clear yellowish in appearance. The aroma is interesting, yeasty and acidic with rice and floral notes. The flavor is not too boozy, with a very interesting acidic yeast character, white wine, and fruitiness. Medium-bodied with slight acidity and good dryness. Interesting and tasty.

yngwie (16504) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2011
Bottle. A clear one, some yellowish color to the flat body. The aroma starts off quite alcoholic but smoothens out after a minute in the glass. Lots of fruits, mostly apple, with hints of citrus. Fruity, slightly spiced flavor with alcohol and some papery, ricey hints, lasting finish. Warming, full-bodied mouthfeel. A nice one, I find it too warming on the palate, but it’s nice and tasteful. 101126
