Jow (2086) - New York, USA - APR 10, 2014
Bottle as I battle through sleep deprivation and watch endless hours of tv. Pours straw yellow with nose of sweet rice. Tastes of pear, raisins, rice, way sweet simple syrup, some wet wood, and heavy cream. Odd one but I’m a sucker for these small sake bottles.

Cunningham (4437) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2014
Appearance: Clear pale light yellow color with no head. No head no lacing.
Aroma: Basement, fruity and rice.
Palate: Medium body and slightly sweet. Flat carbonation. Oily texture.
Taste: Apple, rice, fruity and yeast.
Overall impression: I did not fancy this one. The aroma was worse than the flavor. Nothing to recomend.
Personal stats: Bottle from Systembolaget in in Strömstad, Sweden.

yngwie (13346) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle, 30cl. Courtesy of Cunningham. A clear, oily, flat sake. Alcoholic, cheesy nose with some rice water. Fruity. It’s warming and full bodied, slightly oily, with mature cheese, rice water, canned pears and some higher alcohols. Not very good this one. 140214

Meilby (7385) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle 300ml @ Cunningham
Pours almost clear as water without a head. Aroma has notes of rice, alcohol, hint of fruits and cheese. Taste is light to medium sweet with a warm finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is flat

brokensail (10780) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle @ hotel room. Clear pour, light legs, no head. Nose is rice, nuts, and alcohol. Moderate sweetness, some pear, and maybe some green melon. Flavor is boozy and sweet. Nuts, rice, pear, and a hint of green melon. Meh.

Homer321 (1870) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Horid. Smells like cleaning chemicals and diapers. Just bad. Taste is water but sugary. This is bad. Significant lighter fluid taste. Dump ---Rated via intercellular device

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Crystal clear. A very perfumy nose. Very dry with a mold-like flavour to it. Not inconsiderable acidity. Very light and with obvious alcohol.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 19, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear very light straw yellow. Woody and sweet aromas, fruity with some sweet rice cake aromas, daifuku I think they are. Medium bodied, a little minerally and oily. Smooth and silky at first, slightly sweet. Dries out big time and ends with slow warming alcohol on the finish.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2010
Clear liquid, very nice lacing. The aroma is reminscent of playdough with a grassy fruity undertone. The flavor has lots of pear, and spice. Grass shows as well, with hints of banana, vanilla, cedar, cheese, and a spicy finish. Very nice!

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2010
An interesting idea a unpasturized sake. Smells sweet and yeasty a lot more character than I was expecting. Flavour is sweet and fresh with notes of plum. and it hardly has any of that feet flavour i have come to expect from sake. I say Very Good!
