porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - FEB 16, 2009
(300 ml bottle (stamped "06/08") from Belfast Co-op, served lightly chilled) Pours mostly clear with just a hint of yellow/gold. Aroma of rice, sweetness, alcohol and light fruit (cherry/pineapple/peach). Mouthfeel smooth, light and a bit dry toward the finish. Some droplets and legs on the inside of the glass. Flavor of fermented rice, lightly bready with a nice light fruity touch. Fairly hot but not overpowering. Seems better cooler than warmer, maybe due to the fruity notes.

ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - DEC 14, 2008
Poured clear yellow. Aroma was melon, and maybe a bit of citrus. Flavor was super smooth. No detectable alcohol at all really. Flavor was a bit on the mellow side, but this sake had some nice things going for it. Good stuff.

Clear. Big flower and honeydew melon aroma. Light, sweet honey up front, drifting into a floral and slightly fruity body. Dry finish. Very nice.

heemer77 (5289) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 6, 2008
Pale yellow body with some nice long lasting legs. The aroma is musty and earthy with some dandelions and sweat. There is also some short bread cookie. The taste is light vanilla with some pears. There is also a little bit of sugar cookie sweetness to the finish. This is warming and the alcohol burn is pleasant.

dmtroyer (431) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2008
Nose has a bit of grape, and possibly anise? Slightly creamy texture with some pepper, floral and herbal notes. Extremely drinkable, did very well with pickled ginger on my palate.

Palidor19 (3145) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Clean, smooth, very non-threatening with any strange or unique flavors. This is the sake that one would have after a hard of work and comes home to a nice simple dinner.

nick76 (4370) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2008
The aroma is mostly rice and alcohol and very clean. The appearance is clear. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is watery. This is about the cleanest sake I have had.

Bottle from Jungle Jim’s served cold. Poured clear pale color with good legs. Medium melon rice alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Medium complex tangy flavor with a medium sweet alcohol finish that was of moderate duration. Solid drinkable sake.
