porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - FEB 5, 2010
(250 ml bottle from Lou’s Beverage Barn) Pours very pale yellow with a small fizzy off-white head produced by the effervescence. Aroma of rice, yeast, a little bread and some sweet fruit. Mouthfeel a bit prickly-fizzy along with being quite sticky-syrupy although very thin. Flavor is sweet, sweet, sweet. Overly sweet. Rice and yeasty-bread with sweet apple, pear and apricot. No real alcohol taste, unlike many sakes. Kinda like alco-pop with the soda-like sweetness but the underlying sake component is really not too bad.

First glass of sake in over eight years. Lightly sweet grape character. Obviously effervescent. Tart, sweet finish with mild grain character.

No, not good. No colour, no head. Sweet aroma, artificial sweet, faint artificial fruit. Sweet, fatty flavor. Sparkling.

Bottle. Clear water colour (?). Strange flowery aroma. Moderate sweet and flowery flavor. Average fnish. Oily palate. Strange brew.

saxo (14158) - Hřjbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2009

AmEricanbrew (6008) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Nearly colorless, crystal clear sparkling water appearance with rising bubbles. Sweet peachy, melon, coconut milk aromas. Sweet flavors of honey melon, banana, white peach, with a hint of nuttiness to finish.

astrofrk (341) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2009
Clear, slight yellowing. Fast, quick head. Aroma: Pear, band aid. Flavor: Tropical fruits. Sweet fruity finish. I admit to being a Virgin on Sake’s as far as Ratebeer is concearned. At the same time, I think I found a good "Cherry buster" grading Sake’s. I have had a few Sake’s before but nothing that tasted anything like this. It is difficult to compare this to mainstream Beers or even Cidars or Meads. At the same time, I can see how this could be called a beer. I think I have found a new road to travel in my research of great beers. Welcome me to the world of Sake and be gentel.

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 17, 2009
Pink bottle. Pours with a sparkling body, but no head, legs or lace. Clear with a green tinge. Aroma is sweet with koji, honey, cotton candy and almonds. Relatively nondescript. Once you take a sip you notice how fizzy it is. The bubbles get in the way. Taste is sweet with pineapple and chalk. Dry mouthfeel with sharp bubbles. Tastes like a boring soda when compared with the likes of Hou Hou Shu.

thebeertourist (4904) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2008
Hints of yellow tones, initial bubbles that quickly disappear. Doughy and bready aromas. A bit sweet and fruity competing with yeast. Lightish body for a sake. Not my favourite sake.
