3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is the first sake I’ve reviewed. It was served warm at a sushi bar from a teapot into little ceramic cups. It appeared clear with no carbonation. Aroma was lightly sweet and fruity, but very faint. Flavor was smooth somewhat buttery with some fruity esters (peach?). Mouthfeel was a bit thin, and this was not extremely satisfying to drink...it didn’t satiate me. I was pleased with the experience of drinking this, and would like to get some additional sake sampling for a better perspective. However, I would recommend this sake.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This bottled sake from a bottle shop poured a head of medium sized clear colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a clear colroed body. The smooth aroma was all plastic. The crisp and clean smooth mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a strong vinous alcohol aftertaste and mild alcohol burn. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

Fruit, Melon, and apple with a slight warming effect and notable higher alcohols in the nose. Balanced and creamy, full body and nice finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle chilled. Poured clear color with legs. Moderate green apple, melon and soft alcohol aroma. Medium body with a medium dry texture. Light green apple sweet flavor with a light sweet alcohol burn finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Almost clear. Reinforces my plan to stick to beer. I am reminded more of vodka. Alcohol aroma. Flavour of alcohol and woody grain notes. Smooth innocent way to get your alcohol. Cool bottles.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Seriously, one of the absolute best o-sake that you can have for its usual low-very reasonable price. It brings out the taste when served with fish and has a very smooth taste with very little burn afterwards. A hint of fruitiness makes it easy to take. Try it with a traditional Japanese dish.

had a little more body then what i am used too but it still was smooth. had a hard time disingishing triats in the aroma could pick up some cumber notes and a sweet note. Taste was sweet but mild, alcohol was hidden in flavor, but i certainly felt effects.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served cold. Clear as water with a large frothy white head. Just kidding, no head. Melon, rice, and alcohol in the nose. Nice sweet flavor with pleasant alcohol presence. Very nice, soft mouthfeel. The finish is sweet and long. Very good sake.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Whole Foods, Baton Rouge, La. 300 ml bottle - served chilled. Pours a vodka like clear sheen - sparkles in the light. Clean, fragrant floral aroma with hints of tangerines. Flavor is sweet and subtle and the alcohol is hidden oh so well. Flavor reminds me of walking down a produce aisle and smelling all of the fresh fruits combining as one. Mouthfeel is silky smooth - one of the smoothest sakes I have had to date.
