served chilled in a chilled glass, pours a crystal clear, light cucumber notes in the nose and taste. No booziness at all. Very solid, very drinkable

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.

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

Oakes (15806) - 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.

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.

IslandHaole (1228) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - NOV 8, 2006
Clear, no color at all. As soft as a snowflake on the tip of your tounge. Lightly scented of koji…like a sweeter version of the white paste you used in first grade. A mild sweet flavor like roasted almonds. I know I keep using “almonds” as a flavor but that is what it really tastes like! Good thing I like almonds. The alcohol is very mild, only noticeable in the finish/follow but still very easy to drink. A great feel, a bit thicker than most sakes but not syrupy like some Junmai can be. The combination of the feel, flavor and ease of drinking make this another “dangerous” yet delicious sake. It’s below freezing out, snowing and I’ve got the curtains pulled wide open the heater and some Bossa Nova blasting and a fridge full of sake, I’m sure going to miss the Tohoku area!

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 19, 2004
Yumi, Excelsior, MN 11/19/2004 Poured so that it runs over the glass into a short dish. The appearance is clear, with perhaps a bit of a pewter tinge. The aroma is melon like. The flavor is much the same, with a bit of warming. Overall, I enjoyed it.

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.

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.
