3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This bottled Sake poured with no head and a very creamy thick milky body with fine particulate. It had a very milky lacing. The creamy mildly vinous aroma was very pleasant. The mouth feel was thick and creamy initially and ended with a much stronger milky vinous thick palate. The flavor was thick and milky with a mild vinousness to it. Very tasty for a Sake. Over all, very nicely done. I liked it and would definitely buy it again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at Ft Wayne RB tasting - This sake is a cloudy, whitish color. It has a fruity, rice aroma. It tastes sweet with some mild alcohol presence, not as much as I’d have expected at 15%. It’s medium bodied and quite good. A fine sake.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I had no idea sake could be like this... cloudy and milky-white, very sweet, just a tad alcohol flavor and bite near the end. Almost fruity in the flavor. I’m not a sake guy, so I’m not sure whether this is good or bad!

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2012 I was happy when I first found this stuff - a big bottle of unfiltered sake at a modest price. But my happiness soon turned to a very different emotion. Milky white pour and alcoholic aroma. One sip and . . . woo boy. This is without question the sweetest sake I have ever had - it tastes like it has several scoops of sugar added to the bottle. Is the chalky, soda pop-like quality due to the fact that it is American made? Like soda, it is awful when warm, but drinkable when served cold. I had trouble getting it down on its own, so I began mixing it with cheap beer (a trick I picked up from a pan-Asian restaurant) and that works out all right. Much to my amazement this is getting good ratings! Maybe the problem is that I am not used to nigori, or it just is not the sake style for me. Note: I began to appreciate this stuff more toward the end of the bottle. It is very sweet for sake, and it takes a little time to begin accepting it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Cloudy white sake that leaves a milky film on the glass. No legs. The nose is of white rice and coconut water. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel. The flavor offers sweet, unpolished rice and coconut creme. Finishes sweet and somewhat dry. This bottle accompanied a large tray of sushimi. I think it was too sweet for that. I would have enjoyed it more on its own... after dinner.

Finally, a large and affordable bottle of strong Nigori Sake. Not the very best, but still so much better than most.

3oz pour. Flight @ Sushi Pink. This stuff is made in California???Pours light colored with mild fruity and fungal aromas. Mouthfeel is alcoholic and a bit abrasive. Pretty standard sake, not too interesting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
300ml bottle. Shiki, Japanese restaurant, Norwich. A watery milky white body leaving a residual sediment on the glass. Creamy, delicate melon & pear drop profile, some raison on the tongue. Bit of heat in the throat, soft though slightly lingering bitterness in the finish. Reminiscent of a Belgian quad crossed with a light spirit in places.
