Beerenberger (1591) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Subtle floral aroma. Pours clear. The taste is Medium sweet. Vanilla, almond notes, alchocol warmth, with a slight graininess in the finish. Full body with a creamy texture. Overall, I liked this, but a little goes a long way.

Chilled bottle. Aromas of rice, unripe pear and grain alcohol. Color is crystal clear. Flavor starts slightly sweet and finishes lightly to moderately sweet. Palate is light, dry and finishes moderately alcoholic. A light and dry Junmai Sake

Glass at Ippudo while waiting to be seated. Pours a clear still water body. Nose is fragrant perfume, melon and sweet rice alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with notes of sweet rice alcohol, melon, flowers and perfume.

Erzengel (7296) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 2, 2015
Thanks to Simon for sharing! Typical melon-like alcoholic smooth nose. Neutral smooth fruity nose. Very smooth mild, fresh melon with a smooth and mild but a bit neutral body. Easy to drink with a fruity mild aftertaste. Not too bad.

KoRoBeNiKi (138) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Pour from a Bottle at Hagi, a Japanese Sake Bar/Izakaya (finger food.) Aroma of rice, almonds, alcohol. Appearance: Water. Flavor is rice, almond, and a lot of alcohol on the end. Palate is alcoholic with some sweetness. I don’t see as much of a point of this when there is Shochu instead. Don’t let them sell this Junmai for a high price, it’s whiskey like.

crossovert (10770) - Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2014
180ml twist off frosted glass bottle. Since 1711 and evidently produced in California. Pours clear. Aroma is soy and marzipan. Flavor is soy, icing, dryer than other sake’s ive had but infernally boozy.

OldMrCrow (2318) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2014

Flavors of citrus and pear, but sweetish and ultimately a bit harsh. I’m not an experienced sake drinker but this is less impressive than the other couple of dozen I’ve tried.

adamnowek (1521) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2014
Sake is really not something I know a whole lot about, but to call this dry is a bit of a stretch. Still relatively easy to drink, though.

obguthr (5318) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Cantaloupe, koji, cheesy aroma. Clear yellow. Koji flavor, melon sweetness on the back of the palate. Light to medium body, not overly warm.

ClubGonzo (5226) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle, shared with BBGTC feat. Yngwie and Meilby. Clear water-looking body. Nose is pear, tropical fruits, fusel alcohol and hints of nuts and meaty umami. Taste is destilled rice, papery alcoholic tones and hints of fusel alcohol and nuts. Dry, parching finish. Not my cup of tea, or sake for that matter.
