3fourths (7799) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Skinless pear, white grapes, alcohol, paint / plaster, mashed rice. Medium sweetness, medium-low acidity, a bit syrupy. Biting alcohol upon swallowing and a lingering buzz of hot alcohol late. Why am I drinking sake?

From a 300mL bottle. 15.5%. Obviously clear. Served cold. Tastes cool, like rice, with hints of gourd vegetables. Smells like grains and alcohol.

Bottle pour at a restaurant. Aromas of vanilla frosting and brown sugar with cucumber aroma. Flavors are similar, mixing in some fruitiness, maybe like plum, with a very slight sweetness. I like it.

MichaelAwesome (2993) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2013
Bottle bought in Düsseldorf at Dae Yang. Starts off quite alkoholic with a sharp taste. Becomes more smooth at the end. Aromas of fruits, sweets and sugar. Well brewed sake with a decent ending.

McTapps (2997) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2013
Another chapter of "I get sad when my glass turns empty" but that’s hell of good stuff! It pours out Sake-like: Clear water-like colour with some vanilla hints and medium body. Nose of rice and peaches. Taste of peaches, nectarines, flowers, basmati and oranges. Light dry finish. Very easy and quaffable to drink - enjoyed it a lot. Gimme more! :-)

Appearance clear aroma candied fruit. Sweet aroma. Taste sweet rice overtones with a strong influence of fruit. Lingers on the palate
