2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a lightly hazed gold. Big bright ginger on the nose, very fresh. Mango and old fruit juice follows it with hints of papaya. Sweet mango, a touch of ginger, and a bit of warm rice. Long slow finish with rice and more sweet ripe mango. The ginger fades away on the end. Still nice enough, but not really as a sake. More like a wine cooler or something you’d drink 5 of while floating around in the pool.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
187 ml bottle. Pours a very light yellow color. The aroma and flavor are dominated by mango. I get a little bit of ginger in the flavor, but the mango overpowers everything. Not bad, but it tastes more like a mango-flavored wine cooler.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Pours just like the picture shows, with a little fizz. The nose is more orange and mango than ginger. There’s a light muskiness which could be the sake or the contrasting ginger extract. Still a semi-sweet and fruity flavor with a light fizz in the mouthfeel that makes you feel like you’re drinking one of those fruity fizzy wine drinks from the 80s (Bartles and James? Do those still exist?) but in "asian" format. Probably a great 1st time sake drink for someone who detests real alcoholic beverages.
