Oakes (15805) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2004
Bright and clear, slight hint of yellow-green. Aroma shows alcohol first, with a slight lemony note, honeydew and a hint of wood, rounded out by orange blossom honey. The body is smooth, slightly warming. There's some light tropical fruit notes (melon, kumquat, kiwi). Soft and well-integrated. Sweet finish with mildly pepper alcoholic firmness. Everyone claims this to finish dry, but while there is alcoholic dryness I still get a lot of residual sugars back there.

nearly clear and still. neutral nose with notes of pear and floral perfume. mild acid; medium body. perfume floral flavor with major notes of soap and rice and minor notes of peach. alcohol provides a moderate zing. still unsure i’m prepared to evaluate sake all that well, but i found this one somewhere between enjoyable and tolerable, whatever that means.

douglas88 (8457) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle at a party. Ever the hunter..Anyway, pours a clear yellow color. A fruity pear nose with light grains. The flavor is pretty smooth: sweet dry rice, pears, almost paper like grains, white grapes. There is a big sweetness to this Sake but not overpowering. Smooth. Good.

Decanted at sushi zen. Pours crystal brilliantly clear. Bright lemony nose, mild cucumber undertone. Light watery body. Pleasant cucumber mid palate with a long dry finish.

egajdzis (6130) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Poured a faint yellow tint, with legs on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, and citrus notes. Taste of mre vanilla, fruitiness, and a light alcohol finish.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 23, 2006
Bottle: Clear color with a tinge of beige. Not very thick or sticky. The nose is lightly sweet and hot with spicy melon and plum, a bit of alcohol and light koji dustiness. The flavor is crisp with a rounded dry/alcohol note that breathes through the nose on the finish. My lips tingle and it has a light buttery characteristic to it. Not exactly subtle, but good explosive flavors and a brief yet-alcohol rich tail.

(Bouteille ŕ Maneki Seattle): Un nuage d’ammoniac, des tons hyper terreux, secs et amers pour compléter le chocolat blanc.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 23, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2004 Pretty dry as advertised. From Hokkaido. Alcohol shows through. Had at NYC sake bar. Upon retasting at a Manhattan sake tasting, it seemed smoother with some graininess and a hint of fruit. Pretty light.

csaso (2119) - Missouri, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottle - crystal clear, aroma and flavor were mild fruit (apple?), mild sour, fair alcohol, and of course the fermented rice - don’t know much about sake, but this wasn’t bad, especially seemed to go really well with the sushi I ate along with it

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Nic off clear color,the aroma was that of fresh melons with the taste coming off as being melony with a mild sweetness and mild alcohol coming on in the end.Not a bad one at all gets a little much on the fruit after a couple in a row but over all i could see having another bottle around for the summer.
