3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear with a light slow carbonation. Dome legs. The aroma is light and floral with subtle lavendar and that typical rice yeast. Very delicate aroma. Notes of Asian pear. The flavor is floral with pear and subtle raspberry. Sampled with a sweet dessert, this was a fantastic sake. Very refreshing and easy to drink. Very juicy pear.

Served in an Ikea (?) taster:
Sparkling white head that disappears right away.
A clear as water with a somewhat green ish tint colored sake. Looks a bit poisonous but also inviting.
Aromas of rice, dusty flowers, cream, peach and apple, hint of cabbage and white vinous.
Flavours of apples, rice, dusty, light dry, grains, yeasty and light smooth spicy.
Aftertaste is fruity, dry, grainy and rice.
Low to medium carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a creamy texture.
Hmmm.. Sparkling, easy drinkable. This is a nice Sake. I like it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear color with tiny bubbles forming a minuscule head. Smells sweet and apples. The taste follows suit. Hard to taste any alcohol with the fruitiness. A good sake, my first good one.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours absolutely clear and bubbly, looks like 7-up to me. Aroma is mostly just alcohol - vodka. Flavor is sweet and soda like, with alcohol warming. This is an adult soda.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with my wife. Pours clear, with just the faintest tinge of color and a small white head around the edges. Soft melon with a touch of rice and pear on the nose. Medium bodied, rather sweet initially, moves to a light bit of melon and rice again. Very sweet, but never quite cloying. Just on the edge of that. Finishes up with a bit more light sweetness. Easy drinking, but a bit more like an alco-pop than a sake in terms of flavor. Decent enough I guess.
