Pours clear, some legs. Smells sweet, fruity and slightly boozy. Taste is also fairly sweet and fruity (plum, cherry, berry), with some light rice and a nice spiciness on the finish. The mouthfeel is clean, crisp, very smooth and even a little soft. Just a great Sake overall.

pours a slightly off clear toward yellow perhaps beige. Pleasant nose with touches of sweet fruits, plum, cheery, vanilla, and a touch of boozy. Crisp and clean, will be seeking this out again

radiomgb (2387) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2007
Very clear colour, water like, lots of alcohol legs, very still. The aroma has some alcohol, light cherries and some chocolate. The flavour has some alcohol warmth, moderate sweetness, the chocolate is still lingering around, rich. Clean mouthfeel, light body, no carbonation. Finishes hot, lingering. This was a weird one. I quite enjoyed this new experience. Its hard to believe that something so clear holds so much flavour.

mds (2240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2007
Bottle. Very clear colour as a still water. Nice legs are to be seen though, so perhaps a few point marks there. Aroma of alcohol, sugar, caramel, and cinammon. Sweet alcohol warmth flavour and particularly so in the throaty finish. Decent complexity with waves of darkish plumy/raisin flavour. Good.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Nice clear color,very little to no aroma other then the alcohol which you can tell is present.The taste is some what fruity in a way but mild with the alcohol being a little more prevalent then the other flavors,leading to a nice burn going down.Not bad at all but i prefer some of the others i’ve recently had,this one would take me awhile to finish.

beerslayer (753) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 31, 2004
This is a good Daiginjo sake. Fruity flavors much like Oakes states Passion fruit. Finishes dry, smooth, and with a slight touch of alcohol.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2004
Slightly darker green (for a sake) and crystal clear. Aroma is musty, with alcohol and hints of cherry...fairly robust. Fat fruit flavours and a slightly stiff alcohol component with underlying acidity. Passion fruit and pear. Very dry finish. Good balance.
