Bottle shared by bhensonb. Looks like water, smells like watermelon. The rice is prominent in the flavor with a bit of fruitiness and a very bitter finish.

Bottle from Bine & Vine.Pours like clear water. For me the aroma suggests greenish melon. Rather "medium" body. Flavor is clean with melon notes. Mostly for me there’s not a lot of flavor, unless it’s "rice". The heat hardly burns. This is very smooth.

bought at the Banging Rabbit Outlet Store .. the fish on the label looks like a fish version of charlie brown .. .very close to clarity of water .. . lots of perfume, melon, melon rind, and light grain alcohol .. . mouth has a touch of creaminess .. abv is very well done too, a really good junmai, but i would have liked it a bit more of a crispness .. . . yeah son- crows are wicked smaht!!

I can’t believe the high ratings on this sake. The bottle drew me in, but I was really disappointed by everything else. The nose is strangely lemony, but in an artificial way, like a cleaning fluid of some sort. The taste follows the nose, but with a hit of alcohol, which makes it taste even more like some sort of solvent with a lemon scent. The palate is too thin. It’s drinkable, but only barely. I’d never buy one again. I couldn’t stop thinking of watered down bleach or other cleaning fluids with artificial lemon scents.

Overpriced great name wonderful for beginners - pretty bottle and tasty but this will go from being your favorite to your least- hakutsuru is almost half the cost , get it cold and its far superior. Still much love for this bottle it opened my eyes.

Some apple cider, grape, and a sour funk in the aroma. Flavor is mildly sweet, with some light fruit. Alcohol and a little acidic bitterness in the finish.

It pours transparent with just the slightest tint of yellow. The aroma has notes of: pear, apple, and alcohol. The taste is light sweet that finishes medium acidic; there are notes of: apples, black-pepper, alcohol, and a slight almond finish. The palate is light-medium bodied, thin, and a medium finish. Overall an overly delicate Junmai; seems restrained. I’m sure traditionalists are squealing, but I’m unimpressed.
